THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE. KUALA LUMPUR, June 8 — Bersih chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan is seeking damages from Putrajaya for allegedly violating her constitutional rights over the April 28 electoral reform rally, in a countersuit filed at the High Court this morning. The prominent lawyer-activist accused the Najib administration of abusing its power in ordering the police and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to block the sit-down rally from taking place. “The plaintiff (Najib's Administration), whether acting through its agencies (including the police, DBKL and mass media) or otherwise, wilfully and deliberately took all measures to prevent or thwart the holding of the assembly by Bersih at Dataran Merdeka on 28th April,” Ambiga said.

But for the 77-year-old A Samad, or more fondly known as Pak Samad, the situation at his residence has been anything but unusual, despite his cheeky baiting of the protesters at Ambiga’s residence. This tale of two Bersih chiefs, Pak Samad said, is likely because Ambiga is being ...
