JOHOR BARU: Skudai assemblyman Dr Boo Cheng Hau has apologised to the owner of a tuition centre for wrongfully presenting hampers with alcohol to two students from the centre.
Dr Boo explained that his supporters had donated the hampers to be given out to the two students who excelled in their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.
Dr Boo also explained that he was suppose to attend the prize-giving event on Friday but was not feeling well and as such had sent his assistant Ng Siam Luang to represent him.
"A supporter bought the hampers and we did not check the items in it," he said, adding that they overlooked the matter.
He added that they would get a brand new hamper for them.
Dr Boo, who is also state DAP chairman, together with Ng and other party supporters had gone to the centre Tuesday to apologise to the centre's owner and students here.
The centre's owner Azmi Nordin accepted the apology and said he was proud to have such a leader and was grateful that Dr Boo had taken time off to visit them personally.
