KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 4 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today revealed that some quarters are unhappy with his insistence on not entertaining their demands, including intervening in court matters to acquit several individuals prosecuted for criminal offences.
Muhyiddin said because of that, there were certain parties who were deliberately trying to “fish in troubled waters” to cause political turmoil.
He added that he was also accused of having committed treason against the King when he had acted solely to preserve the supremacy of the Constitution and defend the sanctity of the Constitutional Monarchy.
“I will not sacrifice my principles and go back on my oath of office to fulfill all obligations with honesty, pledge allegiance to the King and the nation and preserve, protect and defend the constitution,” he said.
He said this in a special address to the nation at 12.30 pm that was broadcast live on several local television stations including Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) and Bernama TV.
