The Independent candidate for the Penanti state by-election, Aminah Abdullah has denied she had laid a trap for two PKR members to come to her house on May 13.

“Kak Min has cordial relations with both of them and they have always come for ‘makan’, receptions and Hari Raya at my house.

“But I did not invite them on May 13. Instead, one of them had contacted me, wanting to see me.

“No one from PKR contacted me after I left the party in 2007 except for the duo,” she claimed while campaigning in Simpang Tiga Kubang Ulu here on Wednesday.

Aminah, who was the former PKR Wanita chief, has lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) alleging that two PKR members had offered her RM80,000 and the Penang Deputy Chief Minister 1 post should she win the by-election and rejoin the party.

PKR supreme council member Cheah Kah Peng and an assistant to a state executive councillor, Peter Lim Eng Nam have claimed that they fell into Aminah’s trap as she had invited them to have lunch at her house in Jelutong.

“Do you want Kak Min to swear (on the Al-Quran) about it? Kak Min can give them the CD if they want,” said Aminah, as she showed the CD to reporters.

Aminah also claimed that she had been threatened over the phone to withdraw the report.

“I believe the calls were made from public phone booths. This is a cowardly act,” she said, adding that she would not withdraw the report.

She said she would not apologise and was not scared of a threat by Penang PKR chairman Datuk Zahrain Mohamed Hashim that the party would file a defamation suit against her.

Aminah said she would also expose an event which happened in a hotel in Jawi in 2007 that she had reported to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail.

“But no action was taken. I have the facts,” said Aminah. (Bernama)
