KLANG: PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has urged everyone not to be influenced by the spread of several audio recordings which were said to be those of his voice criticising party deputy president, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
He pointed out that he had never issued any statement as the ones in the audio recording which had spread on the Whatsapp application today.
“The way (I replied) is not correct…my voice…I do not use offensive language…’barua’ is not my language, don’t be influenced by slanders,” he told reporters after a premier ceramah program in conjunction with the By-Election for the Sungai Kandis State Constituency, here tonight.
Anwar said this when asked to comment on the spread of the audio recording which was said to be similar to his voice criticising Mohamed Azmin and Dr Mahathir on the appointment of members of the board of directors for Khazanah Nasional Bhd (Khazanah) recently.
Among the gist of the recording was the voice of an individual allegedly to be that of Anwar who admitted directing Mohd Rafizi Ramli to contest for the post of PKR deputy president in the party election this month, as he claimed that Mohamed Azmin had become Dr Mahathir’s “lackey”(barua). -Bernama
