DAP: Clear sign BN's consensus was to allow Hadi's bill

Published:  |  Modified:

A DAP leader has hit out at MCA, claiming the latter had likely been aware that PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's private member's bill to amend syariah punishment limits would be tabled.

DAP national vice chairperson Teresa Kok was responding to MCA's constant attacks at DAP over the tabling of the bill in Parliament, which would allow PAS Kelantan to implement its hudud laws passed at state level.

“After MCA's failure to prevent Hadi Awang from tabling the private member's bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction ) Act 1965 (or Act 355), MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong has made various attacks on the DAP in an obvious attempt to divert public attention.

“However his attacks are irresponsible and mere baseless allegations,” said Kok in a statement today.
