Malacca DAP rep's car splashed with red paint

The political violence which marred the run-up to the May 5 general election appears to continue unabated with DAP's Ayer Keroh state assemblyperson Khoo Poay Tiong this morning discovering that his car was splashed with red paint and pelted with a rock.

When contacted, Khoo said he discovered the back part of his Honda CRV, which bore the symbol of all three Pakatan Rakyat component parties, was covered in red paint at 7.30am.

The porch of his Bukit Beruang residence was also stained in red paint.

Khoo said he and family were at home and they had gone to bed at around 1am but had not suspected anything amiss.

"We did hear something at that time but we did not expect something like this," he said.

'Possible political motives'

Khoo said he will lodge a police report later today and urged the cops to investigate the matter.

NONE"As a politician, we handle many things. I'll let the police to investigate but I do not discount the fact that the attack was politically motivated," he said.

Khoo added that he did not rule out the possibly that the attack may also be linked to his involvement in the protest against the controversial closing down of Jonker Walk, a major tourist spot in Malacca.

In May last year, Khoo and several other state DAP leaders were also pelted with eggs and stones at an event that was supposed to feature Bersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan.

Ambiga cancelled her appearance following the threat against her safety.
