Tian Chua said Zamil is not credible enough to comment on issues.
KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice president Tian Chua said Parti Kesejahteraan Insan Tanah Air (KITA) president Zamil Ibrahim has no credibility to PKR’s leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on his alleged sexual misconduct.
Zamil was reported to have questioned Anwar as to why he only sued Senator Datuk S.Nallakaruppan for calling him a bisexual and not over allegations of his affair with Shamsidar Taharin PKR deputy president Azmin Ali’s wife.
Tian Chua told The Mole, “He (Zamil) should first and foremost must work out with Datuk Zaid Ibrahim on who is the actual party president before commenting on issues.’’
“No one knows whether he is the party’s president or a dodgy figure in the party.’’
“He has no credibility to go about claiming he is KITA’s president," Tian Chua said, adding that Zamil has no locus standi to speak on such issue.
Zamil meanwhile said, Anwar has chosen to keep silent on the issue while most Pakatan Rakyat supporters seem to believe the opposition leader has taken legal action against Nallakaruppan for making allegations that the former had an affair with Shamsidar.
Zamil also urge Anwar to explain why was he angry with Nallakaruppan for saying that a bisexual was unfit to be Prime Minister or an opposition leader.
Prior to this, PKR’s vice president N Surendran told The Mole the party’s strategy in dealing with allegations regarding Anwar’s sexual and moral conduct is to sue the news source which has highlighted those allegations.
A blog post at suarapakatanrakyat on April 18 reported that Anwar will not sue Nallakaruppan but he will not drop the defamation suit against Utusan Malaysia.
The blogger stated the reason Anwar was not suing Nallakaruppan, who is Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP) president, focus on the next general elections.
On April 30, Nallakaruppan handed over a videotape to his lawyer Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah which the former claimed contained evidence against Anwar.
Nallakaruppan however declined to reveal its contents stating he would leave it to the courts to decide and hopes the suit will be heard soon.
