Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 9.7.2013

An independent inquiry should be carried out on the shameful rape of a handball athlete in the Sukma 2013 in Universiti Putra Malaysia(UPM) to ensure female athletes are safe and that there will no repeat of such shameful incidents or else Penang may reconsider sending female athletes to future sukma games

There have been complaints of lax security in the grounds of the female hostel despite assurances by the Ministry and SUKMA games organisers that security was adequate. Clearly security is lax until such a shameful sexual crime can happen. Such a crime has not only smeared the image of the SUKMA Games but also Malaysia’s international sporting reputation.

The Penang state government wants clear assurances from the Minister of Youth and Sport Datuk Khairy Jamaludin of adequate security and that action is taken against those responsible for such lax security in UPM. If Khairy fails to provide such assurances, then the Penang state government may reconsider sending female athletes to future SUKMA Games.

槟州首长林冠英于2013年7月9日在吉隆坡发表声明:

当局必须针对2013年博大马运手球选手涉及强奸的丑闻进行独立调查,以确保全体女运动员都安全,以确保类似事件不再发生,否则槟城将重新考虑是否要派出女选手参加马运会。

当局必须针对2013年博大马运手球选手涉及强奸的丑闻进行独立调查,以确保全体女运动员都安全,以确保类似事件不再发生,否则槟城将重新考虑是否要派出女选手前往马运会。

尽管部长及马运会主办单位一再强调他们已经采取必要的保安措施,我们还是接获多宗关于女选手宿舍保安措施不足的投诉。很明显地,由于保安不足,才会发生可耻的性侵犯案件。这起案件不只破坏马运会,也玷污了马来西亚在国际上的体育名声。

槟州政府要青年及体育部长拿督凯里明确地保证,选手村的保安严谨,并且对付造成博大保安疏失的负责人士。如果凯里不能保证,槟州政府将重新考虑是否要派出女选手参加马运会。

林冠英
