Farhash, Amiruddin off the hook

PETALING JAYA: PKR disciplinary bureau has confirmed that Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari and PKR Perak chief Farhash Wafa Salvadore Rizal Mubarak is off the hook with merely a warning despite statements critical of party leadership.

Farhash is also PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s political secretary whereas Amirudin is aligned to Azmin.

The party’s disciplinary board chairman Datuk Ahmad Kasim told a press conference yesterday that he has received the replies from both Amiruddin and Farhash over their actions and have accepted their statements.

“After sending a show-cause letter to them we have received both their replies. I have tabled their responses to the party’s political bureau today and the bureau have accepted their explanation.

“Amirudin showed respect towards the party’s leadership and said he does not wish for this issue to drag on. He explained that what he said earlier at the Menteri Besar’s residence was his personal opinion and it is accepted by the political bureau.

“Farhash apologised for his statement and said he will not repeat his mistakes,” said Ahmad.

Farhash, who is also party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s political secretary, had made public accusations against deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali over the sex video scandal that went viral a few months ago.

Amirudin, meanwhile implied that there were individuals in the party leadership who were behind the leaked video which had implicated Azmin.

The party disciplinary board however confirmed that it cannot take action against Azmin who has been absent from the party’s political bureau meeting ever since Azmin retained his deputy president position in PKR polls.

“We have not issued a reminder letter to the deputy president because he did not do anything requiring us to issue a letter asking for explanation.

“The business (not attending meeting) is not the jurisdiction of the Disciplinary Board. It is the work of the PKR Secretary General (Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail),” he said.
