KUALA LUMPUR: Wanita DAP chief Teo Nie Ching has expressed solidarity with Seputeh MP Teresa Kok after the latter recently received a death threat.

The Deputy Communications Minister condemned the act as a threat against the country which should not be tolerated by the people.

“While we have the right to freedom of speech, violence has no place in Malaysian culture.

“This is not just a threat against a female politician as no form of violence should ever be tolerated by us,” she said at the opening ceremony of the 4th China Smart Industry Trade and Culture Exhibition 2024 here on Monday (May 20).

A threatening letter together with two bullets was previously found in Kok’s mailbox on Wednesday (May 15).
