MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said it was not necessary for Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to have made the statement that offering cash to slap Teresa Kok was not a threat.
“I don’t think it is correct to be biased when facing certain issues, and all police reports lodged by the public should be investigated,” Wee said when responding to reporters’ questions on that matter after the Sabah MCA Chinese New Year dinner in Kota Kinabalu on Sunday.
He said leaders must be fair in their judgements and authorities need to investigate every police report lodged by the people, be it from government parties or the opposition.
“It is only with a fair and neutral attitude that people can trust in a leader or party in leading them,” he continued.
Zahid had commented at the Kajang prison on Saturday that there was no need for police to investigate the supposed Muslim NGOs that had offered a cash reward to anyone who could slap Seputeh MP Teresa Kok for her controversial Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014 video as slapping was not a threat. Zahid had said it would only be a threat if the NGOs had made a death threat.
