Batu MP Tian Chua today was ordered by the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to enter his defence over a speech he made a week after the last general election.

Sessions Court judge Abdul Rashid Daud said the prosecution had successfully proven a prima facie case against Chua under Section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act.

What Chua had said in his speech in 2013 had seditious tendency, Rashid said.
