DAP strongly condemns the disgraceful failure of MCA and Gerakan Ministers to press that Cabinet instructs the MCMC to take stern action against RPK for his fake news that Robert Kuok donated money to the DAP to overthrow the BN Federal government is another betrayal of truth and justice. Instead of a heavy fine, MCMC merely gave RPK a slap on the wrist by asking RPK to remove three articles regarding billionaire Robert Kuok for violating Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.

 

Even though RPK failed to show proof of these false allegations, several top Umno leaders from Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Tun RAzak, Umno secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, supreme council members Nazri Abdul Aziz, Tajuddin Rahman dan Azlina Othman had attacked the billionaire.

 

MCA President Liow Tiong Lai had even openly promised to take action against some UMNO Supreme Council members or RPK but so far nothing has been done. Is this another example of a toothless tiger making threats when it is subservient to UMNO? If MCA can not even get Cabinet to take sterner action against RPK with a heavy fine, there is no hope that the UMNO leaders will apologise and withdraw their false allegations against both Robert Kuok and the DAP. How then can MCA be trusted to deliver promises made to Malaysians, especially to the Chinese community, in the  run-up to the general elections?
