“Samanlah, kita jumpa di mahkamah” – Azwanddin
KUALA LUMPUR 22 Nov. – “Baguslah, samanlah.” begitu reaksi ringkas Penasihat Gagasan Tiga Malaysia (G3), Datuk Azwanddin Hamzah sebaik dimaklumkan tentang ancaman saman Setiausaha Agung DAP, Lim Guan Eng, semalam.
Azwanddin berkata, pihaknya akan melakukan mesyuarat tergempar hari ini dan dalam tempoh dua hari, G3 akan mengadakan satu lagi sidang akhbar untuk menjawab ancaman daripada Menteri Kewangan itu.
“Hari ini memang kita ada mesyuarat ahli lembaga pengarah G3, jadi kita akan buat beberapa keputusan dan akan mengumpul maklumat serta bukti. Kita akan buat sidang akhbar dalam tempoh dua hari lagi, Insya-Allah.
“Pokoknya, saya sarankan Guan Eng untuk terus saman saya untuk kita bertemu di mahkamah agar saya boleh tampilkan segala dokumen dan bukti-bukti di mahkamah,” katanya ketika dihubungi Utusan Malaysia di sini, hari ini.
Semalam, Guan Eng mengancam akan membuat laporan polis dan mengambil tindakan undang-undang sekiranya G3 tidak membuat permohonan maaf atas kenyataan mereka yang disifatkan sebagai ‘fitnah jahat’.
Terdahulu, G3 yang merupakan gabungan 57 pertubuhan bukan kerajaan (NGO) mendakwa ‘bangsa DAP’ membawa agenda tersembunyi dan perlu dihancurkan sebelum mereka menghancurkan negara. – UTUSAN ONLINE
KUALA LUMPUR: Lim Guan Eng is calling for stern action against Gagasan Kuasa 3 (G3) for making false and malicious accusations to incite racial discord.
The Finance Minister said the group, which claims to “defend” Malays and Muslims against the “DAP race”, had accused him of diverting RM200mil meant for Malay students under the government’s MaGIC entrepreneur development programme to Chinese temples.
“They claimed I ordered that the money be given to Chinese temples.
“The group even claimed that monks visit my office everyday.
“These are malicious allegations. There is no truth in them,” said Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general.
“This is very dangerous as they want to fan and incite (racial) sentiments so that more (people) will come on Dec 8 (for the anti-ICERD rally).”
He added that he will lodge a police report and take legal action against the coalition.

KUALA LUMPUR— DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has threatened to take the newly formed coalition, Gagasan 3, to court if it does not apologise for making racially charged allegations against him
He said he will lodge a police report against the group over their allegations, including claiming that he had diverted RM200 million for Malay students under the government entrepreneurship programme, MaGIC, to Chinese temples.
“I demand they come forth with evidence (of the allegations), retract and apologise for it, if not I will take legal action.
“I will also be lodging a police report and I hope the police will take action towards them as it is irresponsible of them to raise such sentiments,” Lim, who is the Finance Minister, told reporters.
He said the group’s claims were dangerous as they touched on racial sensitivity amongst Malaysians.
Other allegations made by the group against Lim were that he had received visits by monks at his office on a daily basis and on DAP raising the United Nation’s International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) issue.
“Everyone knows that the issue (ICERD) was not brought up by DAP. Those who did are not from DAP. We have not raised this issue at all and this has been raised for their own political agenda. This is dangerous.
“As we are facing a financial struggle, those who are involved in corruption and unable to manage the country’s economy are the ones who try to divert the attention towards racial sentiments amongst Malaysians,” he said, adding that he hoped the people would be able to evaluate and differentiate the truth.
A new coalition known as Gagasan Kuasa Tiga (G3) has vowed to “destroy” DAP over their alleged plans to attack the constitutional position of Malays, Muslims and the Malay rulers.
The group, which claims to represent 53 NGOs, is led by Raggie Jessy, or Ragvinder Singh Jess, the author of a blog called The Third Force.
During the coalition’s maiden press conference today, Raggie said the group’s mission was to stop any attempt to challenge constitutional provisions for Malays, bumiputera, Islam and the Malay rulers.
Raggie (photo) claimed that Putrajaya’s interest in ratifying the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (Icerd) was part of DAP’s “agenda” to abolish the constitutional position of Malays and Muslims.
“Icerd is promoted by DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and Lim Kit Siang. Kit Siang is the father of racism in this country. He is bringing the Zionist agenda.
“Icerd is a religious issue. Our country is special. If you are Malay, you are certainly Muslim.
“Therefore, Icerd is a form of discrimination against the position of Islam in the country,” he said during the group’s launch in Kuala Lumpur today.
Apart from Raggie, the coalition announced that its adviser was Azwanddin Hamzah, known for his involvement with pressure group Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM).
Raggie’s deputy is Amran Ahmad Nor (centre in photo), who publicly criticised DAP during the 14th general election campaign despite being a member of the party at the time.
Azwanddin said G3 was not a racist organisation, and its aim was solely to protect the Federal Constitution.
“We are not racist. Our friends and neighbours are Chinese. There are Chinese businesspersons who are with (G3). We are against the ‘bangsa DAP‘ (DAP race) who are racist and uncouth,” he said.
