KUALA LUMPUR – UMNO Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin today hit out at National Oversight and Whistleblowers Centre (NOW) director Rafizi Ramli for linking UMNO Youth members with the purchase of property by Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara).
“What logic is Rafizi applying? For example, A knows B, B commits a wrong which has nothing to do at all with A but because A knows B, he is also in the wrong,” he said when met by reporters at a Barisan Nasional Youth breaking-of-fast function, here, yesterday.
It was reported by a news portal today that Rafizi, who is also Parti Keadilan Rakyat secretary-general, had linked five UMNO Youth members to the purchase of real estate in Australia which had not been disclosed, namely the property at 746 Swanston Street, 333 Exhibition Street and 51 Queen Street, Melbourne.
Rafizi had also linked UMNO Youth deputy chief Khairul Azwan Harun to the alleged Mara real estate purchase scam.
When met by reporters, Khairul Azwan said he would take legal action against Rafizi if the latter did not apologise over the allegation.
Rafizi had also reportedly tried to link UMNO Youth to a company, Thrushcross Land Holdings Limited, registered at the offshore financial centre of British Virgin Islands, in the purchase of property in Australia. – Bernama
