KUALA LUMPUR: Former Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla believes that opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is receiving help and assistance from Washington to interfere in Malaysian politics.
In the second and final part of an interview taken from news portal Merdeka Online, Jusuf questioned Anwar’s motive in receiving help from countries considered enemies of Islam and Malays.
“I received a call from Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono informing me that he (Susilo) had received a call from the ‘Washington Police’ asking the president to accept Anwar’s invitation to a meeting,” Jusuf said, adding that he told Susilo not to bow to Washington’s demands and decline the invitation as Anwar is only an opposition leader and not the Prime Minister of the country.
Jusuf also claimed to have knowledge that countries such as the Philippines, the United States, Turkey, Thailand and China were helping Anwar fund the ‘Blackout 505’ rallies.
“The biggest funds were coming from a large company in the Philippines and the rest from Turkey to help fund the rallies,” he said.
The politician said he felt that the rallies were worthless and would only benefit countries which are enemies of Islam.
Regarding the Lahad Datu intrusion, Jusuf said he believes former Philippines president Joseph Estrada, who is also an ally of Anwar, is involved.
He also said that a large Philippines-based company was providing Malaysia's opposition pact with monetary assistance.
“I know for a fact that there has been intervention by a particular group of people and Anwar’s friend Joseph Estrada is one of them and a Philippines company has also been providing them (Pakatan) with financial help over the Lahad Datu intrusion,” he said.
“They have only one agenda, to weaken the Malaysian government, the trespassers want to portray a weak Malaysian government which has failed to handle the intrusion” he added.
