“As with other previous gatherings, although I live far away, I am still here to demand and fight for truth and justice.
Jpeg“I support BERSIH 5 and if the 14th General Elections are run fairly, I am certain change can be achieved with the change of power at the federal level,” he said when he arrived with 50 of his friends early this morning.
