KUALA LUMPUR, March 23 — The police said today that 11 reports have been lodged so far over the assault by supporters of Datuk Seri Najib Razak against Universiti Malaya (UM) students at a restaurant in front of the campus yesterday afternoon.

Sinar Harian reported acting deputy KL police chief SAC Rusdi Mohd Isa as saying statements from several witnesses are still being recorded.

“We will record statements from both sides involved, as well as witnesses in the location at the time,” he said.

He added the investigation will be under Section 160 of the Penal Code, where those found guilty of committing an affray faces either six months’ imprisonment, being fined up to RM1,000, or both.

The incident occurred at dialogue session with former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, when a group of six students were seen holding placards demanding to know where Najib kept the RM2.6 billion, calling him shameless, as well as a clown caricature of his face.

This triggered Najib’s supporters to begin hurling abuse at them, as well as attempts to wrest away the placards, and subsequently physical altercations including slaps, strangling and headlocks. The incident was eventually broken up by police on site nearby the location.

The students have also filed a police report over the incident late last night.

The incident, which was caught on video and made viral almost immediately, was strongly condemned even by Umno leaders. However, the party has not stated if they would punish members involved in the fracas.

Malaysiakini claims interns physically harassed by Umno leaders

KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 — Malaysiakini accused today two Umno leaders of harassing two of its female intern reporters who were covering Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s meet-and-greet at Universiti Malaya.According to a report by Malaysiakini, one of their interns, journalism student Mariam Nizar, 25, said she was harassed by Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno division chief Mutalib Abdul Rahim and Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam.

“A man wearing a jubah (Lokman) put his face near mine, and I told him to move aside and respect my personal space.

“He then told me ‘mak kaulah personal space,’’ she was quoted saying in a police report today.

Both men were supposedly upset with the news portal’s report that Universiti Malaya students protesting against Najib were physically manhandled during a fracas which broke out at the event.

After the scuffle, Mariam reportedly called Malaysiakini’s BM desk editor Jimadie Shah Othman to alert him. Mutalib then snatched his name card from Mariam’s hand and allegedly injured her finger in the process.

Another Malaysiakini intern Ramieza Wahid, 25, was also allegedly harassed and even shoved by either Mutalib or Lokman.

The interns were also verbally abused during the incident, with some calling them stupid” and “liar” as well as other indecent remarks.

Malaysiakini later accompanied them to lodge their police report at the Petaling Jaya police station.

Malaysiakini editor-in-chief Steven Gan had condemned the harassment and stated that such physical or verbal abuse was unwarranted.

“They have crossed the line by verbally and physically attacking our interns who were just doing their job. We must send a loud and clear message that such violence will not be tolerated,” he said.

Najib told Malaysiakini he regretted that journalists were caught up in the fracas and voiced disappointment over the students’ so-called provocation and subsequent commotion.
