I have just put down the telephone after a conversation with Roslan of Roslan SMS Corner. At the time I called him, he had just stepped out of the Dang Wangi Police Station, after making a counter-charge against Berita Harian, for carrying a slander against him personally, and PAS. Roslan, after being advised by several lawyer-friends, will be taking Civil Action against Berita Harian soon after the PRU12. The story - still sketchy in my mind - are as follows.
Several days earlier, soon after PAS Daily Press Conference at Bangunan PAS, a Berita Harian reporter had a one-on-one interview with Roslan. During the course of the interview, Roslan laid out PAS action plans which the reporter, an Azman Mahmood, who recorded it on paper as well on tape. When it was over, none at the office (I have to stress here that I was not present, for fear that it might give a wrong impression), thought anymore of the interview...until Berita Harian splashed the news "PAS Sedia Menggunakan Keganasan!" (PAS, Ready To Use Violence!).
The news attracted the IGP's attention (you can follow the chronology at Roslan's blog), and during the PAS DPC yesterday, Roslan officially responded to the IGP's statement which can be viewed on the 3rd page of PAS Press Release for the day here. However, it seems a Police Report was made against him in Terengganu by people unknown, and later in the afternoon just before he left the office, 3 Police Officers with the ranks of ACP all of them, visited Roslan in his office to begin investigations.
With his casual cool manner, Roslan laid out everything that transpired, which is a far cry from the story that was published and the Police Report made. And thanks to his quick thinking, Roslan requested the officers to listen to the reporter's own tape, in which they later did. The reporter - an amenoist with brains of, what else, a lilliputian - had not erased the tape and the whole story now has backfired on him, Berita Harian, and the persons who lodged the report in Terengganu. Though the Police has yet to close the book, insyAllah, the truth will prevail. Allah Akbar!
Now, this reminds me of an Arab proverb: "He who digs a grave for his brother, will he himself fall into it."
Off note: I have asked Roslan to lay a suit of RM10 million against the parties concerned, and asked for 10%...so gua boleh kahwin lah lepas ni! Yeeeha! :p
ps. Ini macam niaga lagi untung dari niaga unta!
