Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has declared in the Dewan Rakyat that he will sue Berita Harian for "evil slander" relating to the allegation that Pakatan Rakyat had 'received foreign funds' for its Black 505 protests.
His decision was prompted by BN parliamentarians continuing to cite the Malay daily’s report which had quoted former Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla on this.
“I have decided to sue Berita Harian for this evil slander. Despite the open explanation by Jusuf in the media, why is the Home Ministry taking months to explain the matter?” posed Anwar.
He had, during Question Time today, read out a text-message by Jusuf denying that he had ever made such a statement.
Anwar also told Deputy Minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar to come clean on the status of investigation into the matter, to clear the air once and for all.
Earlier, Reezal Merican Naina Merican (BN-Kepala Batas) had queried the Home Ministry on whether the authorities have investigated the claim that Anwar had received foreign funds.

The recent attacks on Buddhism's holiest shrine in Bodh Gaya are despicable acts of terror and sacrilege which must be condemned by all. The culprits must be brought to account to face the full force of the law.
Whatever may be the reasons for these attacks, it is to be stressed that Islam forbids such acts of violence and enjoins all parties to resort to peaceful means to resolve differences.
