KUALA LUMPUR – Malay Consultative Council (MPM) Integrity Bureau chairman Tan Sri Mohd Zaman Khan Rahim Khan has vehemently denied signing a declaration supporting the ouster of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as Prime Minister.
He expressed shock when he found his name listed among those who had signed the declaration, which was aired in the media.
“I deny as strongly as possible, to say I am on the side of those who signed the declaration and will march to oppose the government. I am not involved,” he told Bernama here, Saturday.
The former Malaysia Prisons Department director-general was met at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre where he was undergoing treatment for internal bleeding since Monday.
Commenting further, Mohd Zaman Khan, 73, said he was told his name was listed in the declaration by Malay supremacy party, Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali.
Mohd Zaman Khan said he met Ibrahim who visited him at the hospital several days ago.
But, he said, they only talked about his health problem and did not touch on the issue of supporting Najib’s ouster.
On Friday, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad headed a group of more than 50 people – including Lim Kit Siang of DAP and Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali of Parti Keadilan Rakyat – in signing a declaration supporting the ouster of Najib as Prime Minister.
Other signatories included former Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, former Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir and former MCA president Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik. – BERNAMA
