Mini coffin shocks Penang DAP delegates

GEORGE TOWN: Former DAP grassroots leader Teh Hock Yong from Nibong Tebal shocked delegates at the party's convention here Sunday when he arrived with a mini coffin meant for DAP deputy secretary-general Chong Eng.

The former division chief, better known as Sakura Teh, arrived at the entrance of Dome in Komtar, the convention venue, about 1.30pm but was stopped by security officers.

He told reporters later that he was disappointed that Chong, who is MP for Bukit Mertajam, had accused him of being the man behind a plot to overthrow the present leadership.

"I left the party early this year and I am not a party member anymore. So why do you (Chong) still try to link me with the party and accuse me of being the mastermind (of a plot) to overthrow the leadership?" he said.

Teh said that he ceased being a DAP member after he became bankrupt.

"I am now just a worker in a wet market. Instead of helping me, the DAP leaders are still accusing me of trying to destroy the party," he said.

Teh wrote in Chinese on the mini coffin: "Hope that everything that you have done will bring success".

He said he would try to send the mini coffin to Chong's house Sunday night.

"I will make sure that the mini coffin stands in front of his house tomorrow," he said.

A report in a news portal on Saturday quoted Chong as saying that Teh was the mastermind behind a plot to overthrow the current leadership. - Bernama
