Media statement by Teresa Kok Suh Sim in Shah Alam on Thursday, 12th August 2010:

Tony Pua's death threat an act of cowardice and moral depravation

I deplore the M16 bullet and anonymous death threat note sent to intimidate Tony Pua, MP for PJ Utara. It is an act of cowardice and I condemn it unreservedly.

By resorting to such criminal acts, the perpetrators merely display their lack of personal morals, and more significantly, their own inability or refusal to address Tony Pua on any point of contention in a mature, dignified manner.

This incident is but one of many where Opposition elected representatives have been threatened.

In September 2008, a molotov cocktail was thrown into my family home together with a note that said they would set my family and I on fire.

In September 2009, someone who called himself "hanturaya" wrote on my blog that "teresa, kau ni perlu diajar dgn darah t.kasih (sic)"

To date, the perpetrators of these death threats have yet to be nabbed by the police.

I urge the police to investigate and bring to justice the criminals behind these threats to send a strong message that these acts are criminal and cannot be tolerated.

At the same time, the police must ensure that all steps necessary are taken to guarantee the safety and security of Tony Pua, his family and his staff.

* Teresa Kok Suh Sim, Selangor State Senior EXCO for Investment, Industry & Trade & MP for Seputeh
