KUALA LUMPUR A group of youths rallied in front of Parti Keadilan Rakyat deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali's house in Ampang here yesterday to protest against his reluctance to come forward and answer allegations thrown at him recently.
The crowd of more than 30 people, claimed to be representing youths from Ampang, Pandan and Gombak, gathered at 4pm to urge Azmin to issue a statement and prove his innocence over allegations of corruption during his years of being the then deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's private secretary.
The group's leader, Safarizul Mustafa, said they were dissatisfied with Azmin and other PKR leaders for their reluctance to prove their innocence whenever an issue arises concerning their credibility.
"Whenever allegations were thrown against other political leaders, Azmin and PKR would be among the first to urge the persons involved to come forward and provide evidence that they are innocent.
"But when it comes to them, they keep quiet.
"We urge Azmin to issue a statement and provide evidence denying all allegations against him now."
He said they chose to gather peacefully there to show their dissatisfaction, and not create chaos like the rallies participated by PKR.
The group dispersed after 10 minutes.
Policemen were also seen monitoring the situation.
