Stringent Police Security Should Ensure That Terrorist Threats From the Islamic state ISIL Terror Group, Should Neither Disrupt Our Daily Lives Nor Prevent The Coming Royal Visit By Prince Charles And His Wife To Malaysia Next Month.(e/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 12.10.2017.

Stringent police security should ensure that terrorist threats from the Islamic state ISIL terror group, should neither disrupt our daily lives nor prevent the coming royal visit by Prince Charles and his wife to Malaysia next month. Inspector General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said that police have not received any terror threat to Britain’s Prince Charles’ but security will be tight for the high-profile royal event.

Fuzi was commenting on a challenge issued by an Islamic State fighter from Singapore to Prince Charles’ son, Prince Harry, a former army attack helicopter pilot, to come and fight the terror group in Syria and Iraq. Despite this, DAP has confidence that the Malaysian police when fully committed, has both the professional capacity and capability, to ensure that the Prince Charles royal visit here remains safe and trouble-free.

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 11.10.2017.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) must arrest and investigate Deputy Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya for improperly “supporting” a fake dentist, Nur Farahanis Ezatty Adli, who was fined RM70,000 for practicing dentistry without a license, by appealing on her behalf. MACC should arrest Hilmi to determine whether Hilmi had abused his powers in trying to “help” a bogus dentist who was practicing illegally.

Hilmi had a day earlier denied that he or anyone from his ministry gave their support to an individual who was found guilty of practising dentistry without a licence. Hilmy denial was quickly exposed as a lie.

喝酒吃猪肉有罪吗?如果没有罪,为什么马华怪罪行动党质疑啤酒节被禁?尤其是当局拒绝的理由极之荒唐和出尔反尔,先指伊斯兰党反对的宗教问题,接着指政治政治,最后说是安全考量,令华社和非马来社会无法接受。

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2017年9月29日在吉隆坡发表的文告:

马华署理总会长拿督斯里魏家祥再次咬文嚼字诬赖我,我几时挑战过马华总会长拿督斯里廖中莱比喝酒?我所发表的言论是挑战廖中莱敢敢来槟城,看民众喝酒有什么罪?到底是触犯了道德问题?宗教敏感?还是威胁了民众安全? Continue reading ‘喝酒吃猪肉有罪吗?如果没有罪,为什么马华怪罪行动党质疑啤酒节被禁?尤其是当局拒绝的理由极之荒唐和出尔反尔,先指伊斯兰党反对的宗教问题,接着指政治政治,最后说是安全考量,令华社和非马来社会无法接受。’

国阵联邦政府应该感到羞耻,他们承诺拨款26亿令吉予槟州治水却只给了16%或4亿4300万令吉,证明国阵宣布的“一诺千金”的诺言是个大谎言

槟州首席部长林冠英于2017年9月27日在光大乔治市发表文告:

马青总团长张盛闻无法证明,我说过执政槟州一届可解决槟城水灾,显然他在消费和政治化水灾课题。槟州政府以民为本,在解决水灾课题上不会躲不会闪也不会逃,不像马华闪、躲、逃避华教拨款,统考最后一哩路更是见不到尽头。

治水是联邦政府负责,我没有联邦政府的权力怎么会做出那种承诺。张盛闻无中生有,就是要掩饰他对华教的失责,教育和治水都是联邦政府的责任,槟州政府只是扮演辅助角色,但拨出的款额几乎和联邦政府一样多。 Continue reading ‘国阵联邦政府应该感到羞耻,他们承诺拨款26亿令吉予槟州治水却只给了16%或4亿4300万令吉,证明国阵宣布的“一诺千金”的诺言是个大谎言’
