Umno division chief Jamal Yunos holding up a cutout of opposition MP Rafizi Ramli at Umno's annual assembly yesterday, to loud applause from the attending delegates. The poster says that Rafizi is seeking forgiveness from Umno Women chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil (far right). This follows an earlier political clash between the two. Tan Sri Shahrizat has said that Rafizi, who was sentenced to 18 months' jail by a Malaysian court recently for breaching the Official Secrets Act over a financial scandal involving Prime Minister Najib Razak, deserved the "harshest treatment" for breaching the law.
