Police report on Penang CM's alleged racist remark
The MCA today lodged a police report over an alleged racist remark uttered by the DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng during the debate with MCA president Chua Soi Lek last Saturday.
The Selangor MCA deputy head of public and services complaint bureau, Allan Liew Sin Kim (right), lodged a police report against the Penang chief minister, accompanied by five complainants at the Kajang police station.
According to the police report, Liew noted that Lim had uttered “PAS never killed a Chinese” during the wrap-up session of the head-to-head debate which was telecast live.
Liew said that the Chinese community did not understand the true meaning of this remark and felt worried and afraid as Lim was playing on a racial issue.
Thus, he wants the police to investigate Lim on whether he had violated “any racial issue laws”.
More than 10 complaints within three days
Speaking to the press after lodging the report, Liew said that he wanted the police to investigate whether Lim had incited racial sentiments through his remark.
Liew claimed that he had received more than ten complaints from the Chinese community over the last three days, all against Lim’s remark.
“I don’t understand the meaning, but let us imagine, if the Chinese community doesn’t support PAS, what will happen?” Lim is reported to have said during the debate.
Liew asked Lim to apologise to all Malaysians and withdraw his remark before the police could start their investigation.
As the chief minister of Penang, he shouldn’t have come out with this “irresponsible and vulgar” remark, Lim hit out.
“Only a gangster or street fighter will come out such vulgar remark,” he added.
