Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 12.3.2014.
Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail – A Moral Choice For Kajang, Selangor And Malaysia.
Having failed to beat Pakatan Rakyat through the ballot box in the 13th General Election, when the BN lost the popular vote to PR which obtained majority support with 51%, the BN government is pursuing political persecution to defeat PR leaders by dirty means.
In the last week, we have seen two convictions against leading PR leaders whom BN lost repeatedly in the ballot box. Opposition Leader and PR Chief Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim was handed a five-year jail sentence for sodomy or “carnal intercourse against the order of nature,” while DAP National Chairman Karpal Singh, who also happens to be Anwar’s lead defence counsel, was convicted for sedition and fined RM4,000 by the High Court.
