SIBU: Three associations representing former armed forces and navy personnels had lodged a joint police report against Kidurong PKR chairman Wong Thien Poh.
The report was on their unhappiness over Wong’s remark in a Chinese daily. Wong had questioned the use of a commercial plane to send army personnels to Lahad Datu, Sabah recently.
About 50 members of the associations — Sarawak Malaysian Armed Forces Veteran Association, Ex-Royal Malaysia Navy Association Sarawak Branch and Ex-Armed Forces Asso-ciation Sibu Branch — gathered at the Sibu Post Office just opposite the Central police station to show their support before the report was lodged at about 9.45am last Saturday.
The associations’ spokesman Tho-mas Ling Kui Eng said Wong who was given 10 days to apologise had not done by the March 20 deadline.
He further said politics should not be above a military operation where the armed forces were defending the sovereignty of the nation against an armed foreign intrusion. Separately, another group of about 100 people representing PKR, PAS and several non-governmental bodies also lodged a report at the police station in the afternoon. They wanted the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission to investigate the video “Inside Malaysia
Shadow State” produced by the environmental group Global Witness.
