J-Kom claims ‘Dubai Move’ in the works to topple Anwar administration


A new plot is in the works to topple the current prime minister and the government, claims Community Communications Department (J-Kom) deputy director-general Ismail Yusop.

Dubbed the ‘Dubai Move’, Ismail alleged that the movement arose during the vacation by Perikatan Nasional leaders, as well as government officials, to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Ismail claimed that a meeting took place during the visit to assign specific tasks to 'agents' responsible for identifying MPs who might switch their support to the opposition with inducements.

"It has become public knowledge in the past day or two about the Dubai holiday by PN leaders. Followed by the presence of several other leaders associated with groups dissatisfied with the leadership style of Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim and the Madani government.

“It is rumoured that the 'Dubai Move' was formulated with assignments given to a person in charge tasked to meet, negotiate and make offers to those identified as potential supporters who may switch to the opposition.

“It is said that there are spokespersons with access to the leadership on the opposition side, who are roaming throughout the country, including in Sabah and Sarawak, trying to convince that the Madani government will topple in early 2024, with a date and deadline given,” Ismail was quoted as saying by Berita Harian.

Other influential veteran political figures, such as with the title ‘Tun’ are allegedly involved, a former prime minister and a former finance minister are using local and foreign sources to overthrow the Anwar administration, he added.

Ismail told Berita Harian that he obtained information about the latest movement to topple the government from various sources, not just one party.

While having admitted to having details of the leaders, both opposition and government, who are involved in the ‘Dubai Move’, Ismail declined to comment further.

"I think as someone who supports Anwar and the Madani government, I am responsible for giving a perspective. I hope it can not only enlighten but also help anyone reading the message.

“I will trust the security forces, higher authorities have more information and know (who is involved in the Dubai Move). I don't think I want to take responsibility for disclosing anyone's name, but ‘siapa makan cili, dia rasa pedas’ (if the shoe fits, wear it),” he said.

‘Act of treason’

Commenting further on what he considered an act of betrayal, Ismail urged the prime minister to have a strong foundation to act decisively.

He emphasised that the movement clearly shows it is a malicious political conspiracy, potentially threatening the sovereignty and security of the country.

“Personally, I consider their actions as an act of treason or an attempt or movement of betrayal to overthrow the government of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

“Therefore, Anwar has a strong basis to act affirmatively. The prime minister also needs to immediately instruct the Home Affairs Ministry, the chief of police and national security authorities to investigate several individuals found to be directly involved in this.

“This includes (dragging those) with connections to this malicious effort (Dubai Move) for investigation or taking their statements,” he said.

It is reported that the ‘Dubai Move’ involved a closed-door meeting with several PN MPs and two MPs from BN - in an attempt to gain support from the latter as well as leaders from Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB).

However, Bersatu information chief Razali Idris (above) briefly told Sinar Harian that he had no information about the alleged movement.

“I don't know about that,” he was quoted as saying.

He added that the ‘Dubai Move’ has not been raised by any opposition MPs, especially Bersatu. - Mkini
