Sences from the intrusion of the police into the peaceful, orderly dinner.
Dato' Ngeh enquiring about the reason for the heavy police presence in the school compound around the hall where the dinner was being held.
prevents the people from knowing the truth on what happened in the recent state assembly sitting by viewing the video clip. The OCPD unreasonably just said that it had been a condition for the approval of the permit for the dinner.
The video clips that we tried to show can be viewed at the following websites:
The Scuffle! Lawlessness of the police
The Deputy OCPD Tuan Shaharuddin and his men grabbed the LCD Projectors, LCD screens. DVD player and as seen here were trying to 'rampas' the amplifier as well. YB Dato' Ngeh and YB Nga Kor Ming tried to prevent the Deputy OCPD from taking the amplifier away.
The Deputy OCPD was seen pushing Dato' Ngeh, showing no respect for him as an elected Member of Parliament and a State Legislative Assemblyman. What more the ordinary rakyat on the street?
Dato' Ngeh showed the police permit that we had obtained for the dinner.
WOW! the FRU was invading the hall. They rushed into the hall. This had never happened in the history of DAP-organized functions. DAP supporters are law-abiding people.
More FRU personnel outside of the hall. Did the DAP hold an illegal mafia gathering? Please get your priorities right! (Coincidentally, a snatch thief injured a student near Simpang Ampat Chinese Methodist Church at around 8.05pm He was robbed and slashed. He received more than 40 stitches.) The police should patrol the streets more often and need to do something about the present 'super high crime rate' rather than intimidating law-abiding people at dinner. Where is the wisdom? Please do your job well.
