Press Statement by Chong Chieng Jen in Parliament on Wednesday, 15th October 2008: 

DAPSY condemns any form of political terrorism and demands the police to carry out an investigation on Utusan Malaysia and Chamil Wariya, the writer of the short story titled《Politik Baru YB J》published in Utusan Malaysia on 12-10-2008

DAPSY will be lodging a police report against Utusan Malaysia and the writer Chamil Wariya who wrote the short story titled 《Politik Baru YB J》which was published in Utusan Malaysia on 12-10-2008 at the Ibu Pejabat Daerah Polis at Dang Wangi (opposite of Stadium) tomorrow at 12:00 noon.

The short story in question has a malicious innuendo against the Member of Parliament for Seputeh, Teresa Kok and is highly seditious, and even smacks of political terrorism. It seems that the writer has the intention to fan the public sentiment to carry out political assassination of Teresa Kok.

It has not only threatened the safety of Teresa Kok but, if left unchecked, it will create the culture of political terrorism in Malaysia.

I condemn any form of political terrorism. As such, I call on the Police to carry out an immediate investigation on both Utusan Malaysia and the said writer Chamil Wariya.

I also condemn any political party which attempt to use its media to indoctrinate the notion of political terrorism on the people of Malaysia. Such irresponsible act will destroy the democratic system of our country and will take Malaysia into the dark age of political terrorism.

* Chong Chieng Jen, DAP Vice Chairman, DAPSY Deputy Chief & MP for Bandar Kuching
