Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 26.7.2013.
Action Should Be Taken Against Utusan Malaysia Under The 1984 Printing Presses And Publications Act Or Multimedia and Communications Act 1998 For False News That Police Will Be Using The Sedition Act Against Those Who Spread Photos Of The Makeshift Canteen In Shower Room Controversy.
DAP condemns that death threats made against the whistle-blower and parent of a student SK Seri Pristana who exposed the case of students being made to eat in a school shower room, Guneswari, as well as the school’s headmaster Mohamad Nasir Mohd Noor. Such violent threats are criminal wrongdoings and completely against Malaysian culture of rational, reasoned and objective solutions towards problem solving. DAP hopes the police and catch those responsible for spreading this culture of violence.
On another matter, the public had had enough of lies spread by Utusan Malaysia to foment fear and hate amongst Malaysia’s multi-religious society. For a paper that lies about PR leaders is done as easily like breathing in and breathing out. Opposition leaders like myself winning defamation suits in courts against Utusan has not stopped Utusan from continuing its lying culture. Nothing is beyond Utusan Malaysia until it can openly call for the bloody May 13 racial riots that killed thousands of innocent Malaysians to be celebrated as a holy day.
