LETTER OF DEMAND TO HANNAH YEOH

We are instructed that (your) Facebook Statement contains generated thereby substantially repeat the following libellous statements that are defamatory of (Dr Kamarul Zaman Haji Yusoff) quoted verbatim:-

(a) “Sekali lagi pensyarah UUM ini mahu mainkan sentimen politik perkauman dan agama. Ianya jelas dalam pelbagai kenyataan dan tulisannya yang beliau begitu bencikan DAP. Jangan lupa, pensyarah yang sama jugalah yang mengkritik buku saya ‘Becoming Hannah’ dan takut berdepan Tun Mahathir dalam forum anjuran Sinar Harian suatu waktu dulu.”


(b) “Jika dilihat dari semua perkara yang saya kongsikan, sesiapapun boleh hairan dengan apa yang beliau gusarkan.”

(c) “penggunaan jata negara? – yang nak menuduh melulu kena buat kerja rumah lebih sikit sebelum nak mainkan isu. Banner ini dibuat dan dipasang oleh pejabat Ahli Parlimen Sepanggar. Ramai Ahli Parlimen menggunakan jata negara dalam banner atau poster mereka. Anda boleh lihat sendiri kesemua poster/sepanduk ahli parlimen UMNO dan PAS yang menggunakan jata negara semasa mereka jadi pembangkang.”

(d) “Lagipun menggunakan bahasa kebangsaan adalah ciri-ciri kita sebagai rakyat Malaysia, baik di Sabah mahupun Sarawak. Guna bahasa kebangsaan pun salah, tak guna pun salah. Anda nak apa sebenarnya ni?”


(e) “Bagi saya inilah satu-satunya ‘modal’ yang masih berbaki untuk dirinya – perkauman dan isu agama – yang telah biasa beliau gunakan di Semenanjung. Malang buat diri beliau, ini adalah Sabah, Negeri Di Bawah Bayu yang begitu meraikan dan menghormati kepelbagaian. Sentimen yang beliau mainkan bukan sahaja tidak diterima di Semenanjung dan kini di Sabah juga.”

We are further instructed that the above Defamatory Statements were and are wholly false in fact as well as published by you or on your behalf.
