PAS offers bodyguards to protect Kok from threats

GEORGE TOWN: PAS will provide bodyguards to protect Teresa Kok following threats she received over her Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014 video clip.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu had agreed to deploy the party’s Unit Amal volunteer corp personnel as bodyguards for the Seputeh MP.

Lim said both parties had reached an agreement over the matter and that they would work out the arrangements according to Kok’s needs.

“Federal Territory DAP and PAS will deal with the matter. Teresa is our leader from DAP and she’s a woman, so we should be cautious when we deal with the matter,” he said at the Tanjong DAP open house in Burma Road here yesterday.

“We want personnel from PAS to be her bodyguard because we want Malays to protect Chinese and Chinese to protect Malays. This will be the real Malaysia.”

In Klang, MP Charles Santiago led a group of Opposition members in lodging three police reports against the non-government organisation that offered a reward to anyone who slapped Kok.

“Stern action should be taken against those who incited violence,” he said. “The NGO has been going around offering people money to slap Kok and something must be done before things get out of hand,” he said at the South Klang police headquarters.

Santiago also praised MCA for condemning the act and urged Umno and MIC members to do the same to protect women leaders.
