KOTA KINABALU: Malaysian opposition leaders who collude with outsiders to topple the prime minister are traitors to the country.
This was the opinion of Sabah State Assembly Speaker and Sabah UMNO Liaison deputy chief Datuk Seri Salleh Tun Said.
“It is obvious that opposition leaders are willing to do anything including smearing the image of the country and its leaders to achieve their own agenda.
“They should respect the democratic process practised in the country where it is the people who determine who their leaders should be,” he told Bernama today.
He was commenting on the disclosure by Thailand police that opposition leaders from Malaysia had met Swiss Xavier Abdre Justo, a former executive of PetroSaudi International Ltd (PetroSaudi), in Singapore allegedly to buy documents purportedly linked to 1MDB from him.
Salleh urged the police to expedite investigations and bring the culprits to book regardless of their position.-BERNAMA
