The Batu MP said it was aimed at tarnishing the party’s image as it goes head to head with the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition in the Permatang Pauh by-election.
“This is obviously connected to our election campaign in Permatang Pauh… this is an attempt to smear our campaign.”
He said Mohd Noor Kamil was just trying to stop the mob of people from hurting a local press photographer and a French photojournalist who were both covering the campaign in the northern town.
“I told him to go the police station to report that he (was protecting the journalists) when we saw his pictures alongside others released by the police. So he went to give in his report and he was arrested straightaway,” he added.
