Zuraida to sue over bloody nose accusation
PETALING JAYA: Wanita PKR chief Zuraida Kamaruddin said yesterday she would take legal action against Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos for accusing her followers of punching him in the face in a police report on Sunday.
The Red Shirts were reportedly chasing Zuraida as she and PKR members promoted the Bersih 5 rally at the Ampang Point mall.
“The evidence is there for all to see. I will take legal action against him based on the evidence,” the Ampang MP said in a statement yesterday.
Zuraida accused Jamal of making a false police report regarding the bloody nose he received after he was allegedly punched in the face.
“Lodging a false report is a criminal offence and I am sure the police will charge Jamal for doing so.
“As a man, he should just stop bullying others and then blame it on women. How much more ridiculous can Jamal get?” she said.
Zuraida also compared Jamal’s nose to the famous fairy tale Pinocchio.
“If anyone remembers the story of Pinocchio, then he will know why Jamal’s nose bled. Jamal’s nose was growing longer and longer so he must have bumped into something hard and then started bleeding,” she said.
Jamal and his supporters pursued and disrupted Zuraida and her Bersih supporters throughout her constituency, mocking them as an LGBT group. – by Timothy Achariam
