Johor Umno Youth is organising a rally, 'Himpunan Menjunjung Taat Setia' at Istana Pasir Pelangi, Johor Bahru on Sunday June 10 to protest Perak PAS deputy commissioner Mohamad Nizar's tweet over the successful bid for the WWW1 car registration number by Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar.
Nizar, who will give a statement to Johor police on Wednesday
over his tweet, is facing mounting protest and criticism from the Malays, especially in Johor and will be investigated under the Sedition Act.
Johor police chief Mokhtar Shariff told Home Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein on Monday that two police officers would record Nizar's statement.
So far, Johor police had received 39 reports over the tweet.
Nizar had reportedly questioned the sultan’s RM520,000 successful bid
for the car registration number, apparently implying that the sultan had
used public funds to make the purchase.
On Sunday, more than 500
members of 26 NGOs in Johor marched a distance of three kilometres in
Johor Bahru city in protest against Mohamad Nizar’s tweet.
On June 10, Pemuda Umno expects to gather about 10,000 people at the Istana compound.
