I refer to an article in the online HaprakNews entitled ‘Koh Tsu Koon sedia tentang Lim Guan Eng PRU13 ini’ (Koh Tsu Koon prepared to face Lim Guan Eng in GE13), dated Tuesday October 23, 2011, which was reproduced in Papa Gomo's blog site.
I wish to clarify that the quotes attributed to Koh Tsu Koon in the article were totally fabricated.
HaprakNews has never interviewed Koh. At no time during any press conference or any interview so far did he express and divulge his political plans for the next general elections.
Furthermore, Koh has also NOT expressed any view regarding the falsified blog report on Lim Guan Eng’s son.
Therefore I urge you and your media not to use this “news” which has maliciously put words into Dr Koh’s mouth. If it has come out in your media, kindly have it retracted or publish this clarification
Finally, I would like to assure that if Koh wishes to make any announcement, it will be done through a proper press conference or press release.
Your kind attention and cooperation are very much appreciated.
Johan Mohd Hulaimi is press secretary to Koh Tsu Koon.
