KOTA KINABALU: Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was biased in his comments about the reward offer to slap Seputeh MP Teresa Kok over her controversial Chinese New Year video clip Onderful Malaysia, says MCA.
“I don’t think it is correct to be biased when facing certain issues. All police reports lodged by the public should be investigated,” said MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.
He was asked about the reported remarks by Dr Ahmad Zahid on Saturday that there was no need to investigate the offer by a group of non-governmental organisations to reward anyone who slaps the DAP national vice-chairman.
The minister had reportedly said it was not a threat and there was no need for a probe into the matter.
Dr Wee said it was not necessary for Dr Ahmad Zahid to have said such a thing or even questioned why the matter should be investigated.
He said leaders must be fair in their judgment 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 could trust a leader or party leading them,” he told reporters at the Sabah MCA Chinese New Year dinner here on Sunday.
Present at the event were Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin and his wife.
Speaking on the function, Dr Wee said the harmony and unity among people of different beliefs and cultures in Sabah were “exceptional and so different from other states”.
“At this dinner, we can see people of all races coming together to celebrate Chinese New Year. This is very good,” he said.
