Georgetown – Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has condemned the banning of DAP national vice chairman Teresa Kok from entering Sabah.
He was clueless as to why Kok could not enter into the state as the she is neither an extremist nor has she been discriminating of other races.
” There is clearly a double standard by the state government , ” he said at a press conference after witnessing the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) signing ceremony between KDU college and Dongseo University, Korea.
He said he will bring up this matter in the next parliament sitting to be discussed.
On Wednesday, Kok was barred entry into Sabah by immigration officials after landing in Sandakan airport around 3.05pm.
Kok was then ordered to take the 3.30pm flight back to Kuala Lumpur soon arrival at the airport.
The party vice-chairman who was slated to attend DAP Sandakan Wanita wing event was not allowed to enter the immigration check point and was sent home without any valid reason.
Lim, who is DAP secretary-general, questioned on why a woman like Kok was not allowed to enter the state.
“This is totally against the basic principle of freedom and moderation, ” he said. – The Sun
