Police bullying Lim Guan Eng

It's a case of soft police brutality. Imagine a Chief Minister (Lim Guan Eng) being call up by the police over his remark on Malaysia New Economic Policy. What's the big deal anyway ? Is the police also looking for cheap publicity ?

If indeed the police going to call up Lim Guan Eng, he would created a new record in Malaysia for being the first Chief Minister to be questioned by police on government policy. Another comedic scene from the Boleh Land.

Don't the police have better things to do like catching criminals and solving recent spate of abducting cases and robberies.

Police stupidity ?

Statement by state police chief Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Salleh Mat Rasid to call up Lim, if necessary is already sound like a threat. Is this their tactic to silent those who criticize the federal government 's ways of governing the nation ?

Police may call up Guan Eng

PENANG: The police may call up Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over a statement he made on the New Economic Policy.

Acting state police chief Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Salleh Mat Rasid said Lim would be called up if necessary.

“Lim should not be disturbed by the recording of statements from the China Press and Nanyang Siang Pau reporters on Tuesday as that was only a procedure.

“We only want to know what was actually said during the press conference held shortly after new state government took over,” he said after a blood donation drive in conjunction with the 201st Police Day.

At a press conference after the state Exco meeting Wednesday, Lim said he was ready for all possibilities in the event the police called him up to record his statement.

"I have a good working relationship with the chief police officer.

"Everyone is equal and not above the law. I just hope the investigations would be carried out fairly if the police feel there is a case,'' he said.

Lim added in the past, there were cases of police reports lodged against state and federal leaders but the matters were not pursued.

"This is probably the first time a Chief Minister has to go through such a process,'' he said.

He hoped the police would not treat the case any differently.
