Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 24.10.2012.
Star And Chua Soi Lek Lied And Should Show Proof That Property Prices Have Increased Drastically In One Year From 1st Quarter 2011 To 2012 With The Price Of Condominiums/Apartments By 411%, Flats By 339%, Low-Cost Flats By 157% And Detached Units By 103%.
MCA is the Chinese version of Utusan Malaysia that relies on lies, fear and hate to survive. MCA is behaving like a philanderer who proclaims that he is moral and upright. The latest lies by MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek includes the outrageous claim that Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat was instigating Muslim men to rape non-Muslim women because they did not dress conservatively to cover themselves up(tunjuk aurat). This outrageous lie is similar to Utusan Malaysia lying that I am anti-Malay and anti-Islam as Nik Aziz had never said that.
Another lie was MCA’s opposition that Malaysia is an Islamic state when former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad told reporters yesterday that MCA had never objected when Malaysia was declared an “Islamic country”. On September 29, 2001 the nation’s fourth PM unilaterally declared Malaysia as an Islamic country in a political speech at the Gerakan party’s national delegates conference. Chua was already a Johor State EXCO member at that time. Neither MCA nor Gerakan objected, in fact both supported what Mahathir said.
The latest lie by Chua is that the Penang Government is depriving more than 100,000 local families of the chance to own houses on the island because of the drastic increase in one year in the price of condominiums/apartments (by 411%), flats (339%), low-cost flats (157%) and detached units (103%). This is ridiculous a lie as where did the condominiums go up by 411% in one year.
Penang must have the highest property boom in the world when everyone knows that the property prices in KL and Johor Baru are higher than Penang. Can Chua show proof of such crazy property price increases? According to the Valuation and Property Services Department statistics, the median price of a detached unit in Penang had actually gone down from RM469,000 in the 1st quarter of 2011 to RM 415,000 in the 1st quarter of 2012. Where is the 103% price increase of a detached unit?
Star is behaving no differently from Chua by lying that the price of a detached unit had soared from RM1.72 million during the first quarter of last year to RM3.5million during the corresponding period this year. Chua has shown himself to be without any moral credibility and political authority amongst Malaysians, whether Chinese or non-Chinese. He should not reinforce that by making up such false facts and figures.

马华的另一个谎言就是他们反对马来西亚是伊斯兰教国，前首相敦马哈 迪昨天告诉记者，当马来西亚宣布为伊斯兰国时，马华从来没有反对。2001年9月29日 ，我国第四任首相在民政党全国代表大会中发表政治演讲时，单方面宣布马来西亚为伊斯兰国。当时蔡细历是马华柔佛州联委会主席，马华和民政党都没有反对，两个国阵成员党还支持马哈迪的说法。
