Surendran: Odd for PKR pair to meet KJ who is not sorry for insulting Anwar

Lawyer N Surendran described the meeting between former Umno lawmaker Khairy Jamaluddin and former PKR vice-presidents Rafizi Ramli and Nurul Izzah as peculiar.

Surendran, who is Anwar Ibrahim's former lawyer, said this is because Khairy had defamed the PKR president with his “main belakang” remark and never apologised.

"How strange and surprising. This (Khairy) accused Anwar of 'main belakang' and got sued for it.

"Did he retract the accusation? Nope. He continues to defend it in court, his appeal is still pending in the federal court," he said in a Twitter posting.

Khairy, Nurul and Rafizi reportedly met yesterday in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, spurring speculation that the trio was planning to launch a new youth-based political platform.

Surendran, who is also a former PKR vice-president, said Khairy also organised a roadshow with lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah after Anwar's Sodomy II conviction.

"Has he ever taken responsibility for what he did or apologised for it? Nope," he added.

Khairy's appeal in Anwar's defamation case against him over the “main belakang” remark is still pending at the Federal Court.

He was previously ordered by the court to pay RM210,000 in damages for defaming Anwar with that remark.
