G57 chairman urged to retract statement or be sued for RM100 million – Mohd. Azis

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan (Warisan) Sepanggar has demanded that Malaysian People’s Power Movement (G57) chairman Datuk Zulkarnain Mahdar retract his statement alleging that the party received funds from drug cartels.


Warisan Sepanggar head, Datuk Mohd. Azis Jamman, stated that he and his lawyer will send a letter of demand to Zulkarnain, requesting him to withdraw his statement and apologize for the accusation made against Warisan Sepanggar during a press conference held on Thursday.

“We take these accusations made by Zulkarnain very seriously, and this action is being taken to safeguard the reputation of Warisan Sepanggar.

“The letter of demand is the initial step in the legal process. We will also request Zulkarnain to substantiate his claim within seven days.

“If he fails to provide evidence and issue a public apology, we will proceed with legal proceedings.

“I will seek damages amounting to RM100 million due to the defamation and allegations that have tarnished my name, reputation, and the image of Warisan Sepanggar and the Warisan party as a whole,” he said during a press conference at the Warisan Headquarters on Saturday.

During a press conference on Thursday, Zulkarnain alleged that Warisan Sepanggar had received funds from drug cartels.

“This is a grave accusation and an attempt to tarnish the reputation of Warisan and its leadership.

“As the leader of Warisan Sepanggar, I am committed to disproving these false allegations through the appropriate legal channels,” he remarked.

“Spreading false information is a criminal offense. Instead of making baseless statements without verifying their validity and truth, why not file a police report and hold a press conference based on verified information? This is a foolish act driven solely by political motives,” he said.

Mohd Azis explained that Zulkarnain’s actions were aimed at tarnishing Warisan’s reputation and diverting public anger towards the perceived failures of Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) in governing Sabah.
