GEORGE TOWN: A 45-minute march was held by supporters of Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, who is facing two corruption charges in the High Court.
They turned up in T-shirts with the words “Solidariti Bersama Guan Eng” during the march to the Esplande here yesterday.
Later, veteran DAP leader Lim Kit Siang and Guan Eng joined PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, its vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar and Amanah vice-president Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa at Dewan Sri Pinang here.
“We have to explain the real situation to the people,” said state DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow.
On Thursday, Lim claimed trial to using his position as a public servant to obtain gratification for himself and his wife Betty Chew by approving an application by Magnificent Emblem to convert two lots of agricultural land in the southwest district for residential purposes during a state planning committee meeting on July 18, 2014.
He also denied another charge of using his position to obtain gratification by purchasing his house from businesswoman Phang Li Koon for RM2.8mil, which was below the property’s market value of RM4.27mil on July 28, 2015.
