Penang BN condemned 50 NGOs who created the ruckus
GEORGE TOWN – Penang Barisan Nasional chairman Teng Chang Yeow today condemned the ruckus created by 50 members of NGOs who ambushed Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice-president Tian Chua while he was leaving from an event at the Penang Chinese Town Hall here on Friday.
Teng said the aggressive behaviour of the men were uncalled- and unwarranted for.
“Tian Chua has been charged in court so we should let him face the law and the group should have refrained from taking the law into their own hands,” Teng said.
He was speaking to reporters after launching an anti-crime initiative in the northeast district at SK Sri Aman in Kampung Melayu, Air Itam here.
The mob of 50 was protesting against Chua over his alleged statement which suggested that the armed intrusion in Lahad Datu was staged by Umno to instill fear among the people.
It is understood that the men began hurling bottles and other objects as soon as the Batu Member of Parliament jumped into a car which sped off from the premises about 11.30pm. – NST
