SUNGAI BESAR: Some 35,000 Red Shirt members are expected to attend the rally to oppose the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) at Dataran Merdeka tomorrow.
The movement’s chairman Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos said this time, the group will be sporting a different image than the one during previous rallies.
“As you all know, the rally to oppose ICERD is a peaceful rally that has obtained the approval from authorities.
“There is no need for us to have a protest demonstration, instead this is a solidarity gathering by the ummah to defend the federal constitution,” he said at an anti-ICERD gathering for the Sungai Besar Parliamentary constituency, here, last night.
Jamal who is also Sungai Besar Umno division chief said the previous Barisan Nasional (BN) administration, for 61 years, managed to bring people from all race and religion to live in a peaceful and harmonious environment.
“They (various races) are free to make a living with no obstacles. However, of late, there are issues being raised that appear to break apart this unity between races after the fall of the BN government,” he said.
Jamal said the Red Shirts, comprising various non-governmental organisations (NGO), is taking part in the rally tomorrow in a show of support.
“Apart from that, the rally will also see the Chinese and Indians attending.
“I was told that some 1,500 youngsters from this district (Sungai Besar) will take part in a motorcycle convoy to oppose ICERD,” he informed.
Jamal added that a meeting with PAS and NGOs showed that members with different political beliefs expressed interest to attend tomorrow’s rally.
“I was also told that many PKR and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) members from this district will also be joining me and others in the rally,” he said.

PETALING JAYA: Acting on a court order, a company seized four cars from Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos after he failed to pay outstanding fees for security services rendered.
A total of four cars were seized around noon on Wednesday (Oct 17) from a car dealership in Sungai Buloh which is believed to have business ties to the politician.
A spokesperson from the company, Anirass Gaya Security Services, said that they had business deals with Jamal in the past.
However, he said that there were outstanding fees of around RM56,000 from 2014 which were left unpaid when he discontinued the use of their services.
“A letter of demand was produced, then a summons (by the court). So now there is a 14-day period for him to solve the matter. If not, we shall proceed with the auctioning process (of the seized cars),” said the spokesperson after the seizure.
The spokesperson said the current amount owed is around RM200,000, after interest.

To this end, Jamal sent a letter of representation through his lawyers to Thomas at the Attorney-General’s Chambers here on Thursday (Sept 6).
“In the recent few months, I’ve seen that the Attorney General is very good because many people have been set free, such as Rafizi Ramli, Lim Guan Eng, Tony Pua, Sivarasa Rasiah, and Ratu Naga (Syarul Ema Rena Abu Samah).
“I want to take advantage of his generosity and also ask for him to recall the cases against me,” Jamal told reporters here on Thursday (Sept 6) after submitting the letter.

There are also another 25 cases under investigation involving him.
Asking for all of them to be retracted, Jamal, together with his lawyers Datuk Sulaiman Ismail and Datuk Imran Tamrin, met with Thomas’ special officer Wasri Ahmad Sujani to submit the letter.
In a sarcastic jibe, Jamal said Finance Minister Lim’s recent acquittal of corruption showed that Thomas was “kindhearted and generous”.

Jamal lands in prison after court denies bail
Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos was today charged with resisting lawful arrest at the Magistrate’s Court in Ampang.
Jamal arrived at the court today at 4pm after which he had a light meal before having his statement recorded by the police.
He was then taken before the magistrate and charged under Section 224 of the Penal Code with resisting lawful arrest on May 25 at the Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital.
In court today, DPP Fatin Hadni Khairuddin objected to bail pointing out that he had fled before this.
“Facts of this case show that before bail was posted, he fled. This is contempt of court. There is no guarantee that he will appear in court if bail is granted,” she said.
Jamal’s counsel Izzat Zabir told the court that leaving the hospital was a result of a miscommunication between him and his lawyers.
Counsel proposed conditional bail in that Jamal be required to present himself to the authorities at regular intervals until his hearing date.
Head of the prosecution, DPP Razali Che Ali, however, said that if Jamal had no intention to abscond on May 25, then he would have surrendered to police later on when he knew he was wanted.
“We had to seek help from Indonesia to arrest him. He did not surrender to the court. Hence, we strongly object to bail,” he said.
Jamal was then given the opportunity to address the magistrate to explain the May 25 incident.
“I went to Sumatra in Indonesia and then I went to Jakarta where I was arrested. My experience in Indonesia was harrowing and I do not want a repeat,” he said.
Jamal pledged not to repeat such episodes again, adding that he was scared and now a target for harsh action due to the change in government.
He also claimed that he has a bad back and cannot lie on the floor as another reason why he should be allowed bail.
Magistrate Mohamad Firdaus disallowed bail and set July 30 as the next mention date.
KUALA LUMPUR: No longer a fugitive, Umno leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos arrived at the Ampang Magistrate’s court today, guarded heavily by policemen.
The Sungai Besar Umno division chief is expected to be charged with resistance or obstruction by a person to his lawful apprehension.

SUNGAI BESAR: Fugitive Umno Youth chief candidate Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos said that he will turn himself in to the police if he is elected to the post.
In a 39-second video clip sent via WhatsApp, Jamal – who is wanted in connection with nine criminal cases – said that he will cooperate with the police once he wins the election.
“Do not worry. (After) I am picked as Umno Youth chief, I will go to the police the next day.
“There is no problem. I cannot run away, although I have legs. I fled earlier because they were trying to victimise me,” he said, adding that he is in “good health and still in Malaysia” despite reports to the contrary.
In the video, the Sungai Besar Umno division chief, who is clad in a green and black-striped jacket, appears against a backdrop of blue curtains.
Since his disappearance on May 25, his current whereabouts are unknown.
In a separate 44-second video clip, the wanted man – this time dressed in a blue t-shirt – insists that Umno Youth chief candidates should be “bold in the field and not just be full of talk.”
“Do not worry about getting caught, remanded and charged.
“I have had dozens of charges. No worries!
“But until now, I cannot be detected on radar.
“Only a person like this, who while hemmed in or even remanded, can get away, should be (elected) leader,” he said.
Jamal was earlier listed as one of nine candidates for the Youth chief post in the June 30 Umno leadership election.
