GEORGE TOWN: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has declined to comment on the legal action being proposed by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission against him over his “illegal detention” remark.
When prompted by the media, Lim said: “At this point in time, I do not plan to make any comments.”
He said this after visiting Lebuh Relau following traffic complaints in the area yesterday.
Lim was responding to a statement by the MACC on Tuesday that it would take action against Lim after he refused to apologise for his allegation about the arrest of Phee.
Phee, however, spared a good word for MACC officers, saying he was grateful for officers who took care of him during his detention.
“I would like to thank them as they were good to me. They were just carrying out their duties.
“I have no hard feelings against them,” he said during a visit to the Starkey Hearing Foundation event at Caring Society Complex in Jalan Utama yesterday. Over 1,400 people received free hearing aids there.
Phee was arrested and remanded on Aug 11 to help in investigations over an illegal factory that burned sawdust to make carbon for filters after he wrote two letters urging the local councils not to take action against it.
