MCA Youth files report over ‘seditious’ banner


KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth has lodged a police report over a banner deemed seditious.

Its youth chief Chong Sin Woon said the banner questioned the existence of Chinese schools and should not be brought up at the rally as it was seditious.

The movement’s vice chief Nicole Wong (pic) has since made a police report.

The MCA Youth has lodged a police report over a banner seen at the red shirt rally here, which they say is seditious. MCA Youth vice chief Nicole Wong said she saw a banner questioning the existence of vernacular schools, held by some protesters clad in red shirts during the Himpunan Rakyat Bersatu rally here. Wong was accompanied by Kevin Koo, the MCA Youth legal bureau deputy chairman.

She said she first saw on Twitter the banner calling for the abolition of the vernacular schools being held by some of the red-shirt protesters.

“It was actually tweeted by a Chinese daily’s (Sin Chew) Twitter account. What has today’s rally got to do with vernacular schools? This is not related to it at all,” Wong said at the Dang Wangi police station yesterday.

She added that she hoped the police would look into the matter.

Wong said she initially doubted the authenticity of the picture but later saw other online media portals tweeting the same report.

Wong was accompanied by Kevin Koo, the MCA Youth legal bureau deputy chairman.

“When you see something like this and don’t make a report, something must be wrong,” said Koo.

“The police should investigate the matter.”
