Pengerang rally organising member gets ominous gift

Less than a day before the rally against the Pengerang petrochemical plant in Johor, an organising member has found a bag containing a dead snake deposited in front of her home.

The python's head was almost severed save for a stretch of skin, and along it were flyers promoting tomorrow's rally.

Goh contacted former committee member Hong Thian Hwa for help at 4.26pm, who arrived to inspect the bag.

"Goh only told me that the bag felt soft and moist to touch.

"When I opened the bag, it was a dead phyton and several of the rally's flyers," he said.

The coalition will lodge a police report this evening. 

Attempts to contact Goh for comment has been unsuccessful.

"I also urge the police to ensure that the rally goes smoothly," she toldMalaysiakini when met at the venue of tomorrow's protest.
