Kedah deputy speaker denies he and sons assaulted youth
Kedah deputy speaker Azmi Che Husain has refuted claims circulated online that he and his sons, insulted and attacked a man and his girlfriend in the middle of traffic, in Alor Setar last week.
"I was trying to break up the fight, but I was punched instead," lamented the deputy speaker who alleged that he was the one assaulted by the youth, in a fight in front of Aman Central on the evening of May 15, reports Malay daily Sinar Harian.
Yesterday, a 33-second long video clip posted by Facebook user Adam Hoonigan depicting the scuffle between a man and three other individuals in the middle of the road, purportedly including Azmi, became viral on social media.
Relating his side of the story to the Malay daily, Azmi related that before the incident occurred, the man who claimed that he was beaten up displayed rude gestures to his son, who was driving the vehicle he was in.
He claimed that the person who provoked his son then continue to shower his son with verbal abuse.
"I was in the car at the moment along with two other sons. When I saw what was happening, I left the car to ask why he did that to my son.
"However when questioned, he resorted to berating me. My Salam (greeting) to him was not even answered," he told the paper.
"My two other sons who were in the car then got out to defend me from getting beaten up further. No one would only watch their father beaten up before their very eyes.
"Thus a struggle ensued between the three, I was trying to break up the fight, but I was punched by the man instead," he said.
He further alleged that the man in question also tried to twist the the situation by accusing him and his sons of punching his girlfriend in the chest and both arms.
He said that what happened was what not like what the man alleged. He claimed instead that the woman sustained injuries after being shoved into his car by the man involved.
Azmi claimed that the misunderstanding over the incident which went viral, was the product of those who planned to damage his political image.
Without disclosing the identities of the ones involved, he asserted he knew who were trying to tarnish his image with the incident.
"The incident occurred complete with a camera recording, it is as if something is wrong.
"Allah will be with those who are in the right, I have faith in His promise," said Azmi.
'Hang tak kenal lagi aku siapa,' kata ADUN itu menurut lelaki yang mendakwa dicederakannya
PETALING JAYA : Seorang lelaki mendakwa dirinya dan teman wanita dicederakan seorang ADUN Kedah dan dua orang lelaki.
Menurut lelaki itu, kejadian berlaku ketika dia sedang memandu kereta untuk keluar daripada pusat beli belah Aman Central, pada 15 Mei jam 5.45 petang.
Sebaik sahaja masuk ke lorong tengah ke lampu isyarat di hadapan Aman Central, tiba-tiba sebuah Toyota Harrier yang dinaiki oleh ADUN Kedah yang berusia sekitar 50-an dan dua lelaki berusia 20-an bergerak ke sebelah kiri kenderaannya dan membunyikan hon.
“Sewaktu itu, lampu isyarat berwarna merah. Kemudian pemandu kereta tersebut telah menurunkan tingkap keretanya dan berkata ‘kenapa, kenapa..hang tak kenal lagi aku siapa’ berulang kali kepada saya dan meminta saya turun dari kenderaan saya,” kata lelaki itu.
Dia memilih untuk tidak turun daripada kenderaannya tetapi lupa pintunya tidak berkunci.
“Kemudian lelaki 50-an dari kereta tersebut telah turun dari keretanya dan membuka pintu kereta saya dan menarik kunci kereta saya. Lelaki 50an telah menumbuk saya di bahagian mulut saya. Akibat dari itu, mulut saya mengalami luka.
