Tun Mahathir Using Sosma to Arrests 2 DAP Leaders Link With LTTE – Warning Shots to DAP Party Not to Support Anwar

The Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) can be applied in the recent nationwide crackdown on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) linked elements, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister defended police after Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng criticised the use of the Act in detaining people with alleged links to the terror group.

“In the absence of alternative laws, Sosma can still be applied,” he said.

Dr Mahathir also said that he is satisfied with the explanation given by police on the crackdown.

“The police have briefed me. They (the police) have reasons to take action.

“I am satisfied with the actions taken, and reasons given,” he said to reporters after delivering a keynote address at the International Conference on Industry 4.0 at Segi University on Monday (Oct 14).

He said this when asked to comment on Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter-Terrorism Division (E8) head Deputy Comm Datuk Ayob Khan’s comment on political interference, as DAP leaders had been criticising over the arrest of those linked to LTTE.

Two DAP leaders – Gadek assemblyman G. Saminathan and Seremban Jaya assemblyman P. Gunasekaran – are among 12 people arrested under Sosma over their alleged links to LTTE.

The detentions of 12 individuals including two State Assemblymen to help in investigations over links to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) terrorist group were done in accordance with provisions under the existing law, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The prime minister said the police action were also done without the interference of his administration, refuting claims that the arrests were made to weaken certain quarters.

‘’The government wants to know why this matter is happening. We don’t like to use power to weaken any quarter.

‘’It is not me who nabbed these people, not (Tan Sri) Muhyiddin (Yassin, Minister of Home Affairs) who nabbed them, (but) it is the police who did so and the arrests by their officers were following the law,’’ he told a media conference after attending a briefing on the development of Langkawi, here today.

Dr Mahathir also explained that he would determine if the arrests could affect Pakatan Harapan (PH) which would be facing the by-election in Tanjung Piai soon.

Mahathir : Isyarat Bagi DAP dan Anwar

Bahagian tersebut turut merungkai isu penahanan beberapa ahli DAP di bawah SOSMA atas tuduhan terlibat dengan Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), di mana saya menjelaskan mengapa penahanan tersebut merupakan isyarat oleh Mahathir bahawa“semboyan sudah berbunyi.” – Third Force

Tidak ramai yang tahu, tujuan sebenar Mahathir mengarahkan penangkapan ahli-ahli DAP dan PKR bawah SOSMA adalah bagi menunjukkan taringnya kepada semua, termasuk UMNO, sebagai tanda beliau amat berkuasa dan mampu melakukan “apa-apa sahaja tanpa ditentang.

Ianya turut merupakan isyarat bagi DAP dan Anwar untuk buktikan mereka benar-benar mempunyai sokongan majoriti di parlimen dengan cuba menyingkirkan Mahathir daripada jawatan Perdana Menteri.

Mahathir sebenarnya memberikan satu tempoh masa tertentu bagi Anwar dan DAP untuk buktikan perkara ini, di mana selepas tempoh ‘rahsia’ tersebut, beliau akan bertindak berdasarkan beberapa opsyen yang sedia ada pada dirinya.

Sekiranya ada tanda-tanda perkara ini akan berlaku, beliau dijangka akan bertindak samada menggantung pendaftaran parti tersebut atas tuduhan terlibat dengan keganasan LTTE ataupun mengarahkan pihak SPRM untuk menahan Lim Guan Eng atas tuduhan rasuah dan salahguna kuasa.

Saya diberitahu, pihak SPRM di bawah kawalan Latheefa Koya sudahpun mempunyai bukti yang cukup berhubung salahlaku Guan Eng melibatkan projek Terowong Dasar Laut Pulau Pinang dan tidak akan teragak-agak membuat tangkapan menurut ‘perintah’ Mahathir atas sebab-sebab tertentu.

Seandainya DAP mampu menumbangkan PH sebelum Mahathir sempat berbuat apa-apa, beliau masih dapat membuktikan kepada masyarakat Melayu-Islam bahawa beliau sememangnya berniat haramkan DAP dengan merujuk kepada penangkapan beberapa pemimpin parti tersebut di bawah SOSMA baru-baru ini.

Malah, Mahathir boleh memberitahu kepada masyarakat Melayu Islam bahawa DAP sanggup menumbangkan sebuah kerajaan pimpinan Melayu-Islam semata-mata kerana ingin menghalang Guan Eng daripada ditangkap dan dibawa ke muka keadilan.

Kesemua ini akan menjana satu gelombang kebangkitan baru, di mana majoriti pengundi yang beragama Islam yang sudah lama berdendam dengan Guan Eng dan DAP akan berdiri teguh di belakang gandingan Mahathir-Azmin.

Mereka akan melihat kemenangan Mahathir di pilihanraya umum ke-15 (PRU15) sebagai peluang untuk membalas dendam terhadap Guan Eng serta beberapa pemimpin lain dari DAP, termasuk Lim Lip Eng, Nga Kor Ming dan seorang lagi bekas ahli DAP yang sudahpun dipanggil oleh Bukit Aman, iaitu Superman Hew.
