LONDON, May 15 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said
the attempt by two or three individuals to create noise at his meeting with
Malaysians here yesterday did not spoil the function.
"It did not disturb me and the situation could be controlled after two or
three minutes. We will be showing the overall video recording of the function,"
he told Malaysian journalists, here, today.
He said the move to show the video was taken as certain quarters might try
to give a different picture of the incident.
"So, we need to correct the perception, to show what really happened, and
many attended the function yesterday including Malaysia''s High Commissioner to
the United Kingdom, Datuk Seri Zakaria Sulong," he said.
It is understood that the video recording will be uploaded to the 1Malaysia

At the "Sepetang Bersama Perdana Menteri" (An Evening With The Prime
Minister) attended by about 1,500 people, two or three individuals appeared and
started making noise.
Najib said the guests at the function were largely warm and friendly towards
him, they "salam" with him while giving him words of encouragement and many
also asked to be photographed with him.
"This shows that the action of the few did not adversely affect the
function. It was expected; an overflow from the recent Bersih 3.0 demonstration.
Definitely they would take the opportunity to exploit my presence (at the
function) for their own personal interest."
He said most Malaysians loved peace and disliked chaos. "They respect the
rule of law.
"This could be deduced from my conversations with those present (at
yesterday''s function). They not only said positive things to me, but they also
rushed forward to have their pictures taken with me."

But as usual, Najib said, a small group would try to hijack an occasion for
a certain objective.
"This was a case of a small minority group trying to dominate a situation.
That is why as the majority, we should not allow this and not feeling pressured
in this matter," he added.
Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor arrived here on Monday for a
two-day working visit to the United Kingdom.
The prime minister had received the invitation from the Prince of Wales,
Prince Charles to attend the reception in conjunction with the conferment of the
Royal Charter for the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies this evening.
