His press statement called on the Home Minister to “apologize for the police’s harsh and heavy-handed treatment”.
He described the handcuffing of Sing Yee as “nothing but an abuse of power and an act of humiliation”, and criticized the police as “insensitive, irresponsible and not making any sense” (compared to the kid-glove treatment of BN leaders when they are charged for corruption). See Malaysiakini, ‘Guan Eng: Handcuffing girl is double standards‘.
He further described Sing Yee as a “young, powerless and defenceless kid” who has been victimized by the “bullying and cowardly tactics of Hishamuddin [Hussein] that question his fitness as Home Minister”.
This is one of those rare occasions when I partially agree with Kim, at least insofar as the characterization of Sing Yee as a young, powerless and defenceless kid is concerned.
It is her very powerlessness that would make her more susceptible to manipulation by Kim’s coterie to score electoral points. For her sake, it should not be allowed that she be turned into a political football like Teoh Beng Hock.
Dearest Lim Guan Eng ,
How could we be accused of being double standard where even our MCA former Deputy President and Minister was being handcuffed ?
As a Organizer for an event the organizer should be responsible for whatever incident or things that is happening . Pakatan Rakyat in the first place should never used young girls to bait them into your political trap to fight the Government. As the Secretary General of DAP you should apologize for whatever that is happening in this whole issue. Moreover this young girl is wearing your DAP Rocket Red T Shirt during the incident.
Pakatan Rakyat should stop using young and innocent youth for any of your political agenda. Please do not manipulate and deceive them as your political pawn for you to capture Putrajaya. Please guide to do a healthy political culture and not bringing them out for a street violent rally that practicing dirty political culture. Please do think for their parents and also for their future.
Malaysian youth should now open your eyes to know that Pakatan Rakyat are basically using you all for all their personal political benefit. They can never replace any of you to go to over to hospital , jail or even being handcuffed by our police if anything goes wrong .
Lim Guan Eng as a respectable political leader in Malaysia should have certain integrity for blaming game. If you are really sincere about the safety and well being of Ong Sing Yee then you will never used her in your rally in the first place. You should be responsible for whatever event that you all organizer as an organizer. Moreover you had deceive most Malaysian that it will be a peaceful rally that turn out to be ugly and violent. As a leader you must not only be good in blaming others for whatever that happen but also do take certain responsibility for bad incident that is happening in your own rally.
Dearest Ong Sing Yee and all Malaysian ,
This whole incident only proven to us one thing that not even a single Pakatan Rakyat leader will be responsible for your own action. What they will only be doing will be always blaming Barisan Nasional and the government. That is the only thing they can do for you. They will never take the responsibility to apologize to you and your parents for whatever that is happening. You claim in your press conference that they are the one influence you to step on our Prime Minister picture and you ignorantly follow them without knowing that it is wrong. Will they be responsible and apologize for influencing you ? No. They will and they will never do so. They lie to you that it is a peaceful assembly and you thought that by attending it everything will be fine.
Now is a great lesson to all of us where if anything happen to any of us or you the only thing Pakatan Rakyat leaders is capable of doing will only be blaming Barisan Nasional and the government. That is the only thing they can do.
So far did any of the Pakatan Rakyat leader came to you and say Ong Sing Yee I am or We are sorry about what is happening to you. We should have prevented such ugly incident in the rally that we had organized. We are also very sorry that we had called our other supporter to be involved in such bad political culture where you are so naive and ignorantly following their footstep. Those bunch of people that you are being influenced to follow them are our hardcore supporters and members who are willing to do anything our party and political cause to capture Putrajaya. Even if they are being detained or captured they are already prepared for it. We never know that there will be an young an innocent girl like you who just follow them blindly. We are sorry for it. Did they? We are also sorry to inform you that in all our assembly there no such thing as peaceful assembly. Those are just rhetoric that is being uses by us to manipulate the public out there to come out and protest against our government. We never know that you are too young for knowing all this. We are sorry that we earlier never mention to you that majority of our event and rally are mostly very violet and surely they will be some ugly incident in those event.
We are sorry Ong Sing Yee. Although you are wearing our Red Rocket T Shirt but when you did something like this we could never go all out to take the blame for you as it will looks very bad for DAP. The only thing we could help you now is only play the blame game towards Barisan Nasional and government.
Yes. They had never ask you to attend our rally. They had never influence you to step on our Prime Minister picture. But since they are detaining you earlier for your own wrong action and therefore we can only ask blame them that they had wrongly handcuff you. We should blame them when even their our former Minister and Deputy President of MCA was being handcuffed by the police is right because they are from Barisan Nasional and since you are wearing our Rocket T Shirt then for whatever wrong you have done will still be right in the law of Pakatan Rakyat. Therefore it is wrong for them to handcuff a person like you who had acted wrongly wearing Rocket T Shirt.
We should also blame them for not informing you that not to trust DAP and Pakatan Rakyat . We should also blame them for not telling you that our rally will hardly be peaceful and usually is full of violence and ugly incidents will happen. We should also blame them for not warning you that Pakatan Rakyat are basically just using you as their political weapon. We should also blame them for not instructing you not to attend our rally because we will never be responsible for you for anything that is happening during our rally.
