Mohamad, widely known as Mat Sabu, faces a charge under Section 505 of the Penal Code for making a statement liable to lead to public mischief.
FOWL FOUL PLAY?
A leaked US Embassy cable carries an explosive charge against former Election Commission (EC) chief Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman - that he admitted to personally granting citizenship and Malaysian identity cards to over 60,000 foreign migrant workers (predominantly Muslims from Indonesia and Mindanao in the Philippines) in Sabah, in exchange for their votes in state assembly elections to help Umno assume political control over Sabah.
During that decade, Umno granted citizenship and Malaysian identity cards to over 600,000 foreign migrant workers in Sabah. This is attributed to Mahathir’s PROJECT IC.
In 2007, then EC Chairman Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman said that "there is only one regime in this country that is capable of running (the country)."
He let slip today his views on which 'regime' he regards as being capable of running the country, and said those who disagree with him do not realise the 'critical' situation the country is in.
If this is not mischievous, then pigs can climb trees.
Abdul Rashid went on to say that he was on the same wavelength as his friend, senior Umno leader Sanusi Junid, about what the country needs. “If we don't agree, then we are in trouble, because I run the elections," he boasted.
Not blatant mischief?
Wan Ahmad (CURRENT Deputy EC)added, "BN has never attacked or put down the EC. That is the difference between PAS, DAP, PKR and BN."
Critics of the EC say that BN has no reason to attack or put down the EC, as the EC is doing BN's work.
Mischief or otherwise?
SAKMONGKOLAK47 aka Datuk Ariff fumed: I wouldn’t want the Bangladeshi pump attendant to have the same voting rights as I do. How the elections commission can with impunity insult our intelligence by claiming the latest voters lists are meant for internal circulation is beyond any measure of decency!
Isn’t this capital mischief?
