IPOH: Police should be spending more time investigating crime and preventing it from happening rather than investigating politicians.
DAP national vice-chairman M. Kulasegaran said police were barking up the wrong tree by investigating Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over his alleged seditious remarks.
”What Lim said during the Pakatan Rakyat convention in Shah Alam recently was based on the findings of Thai pathologist Dr Porntip Rojanasunan,” he said yesterday.
Speaking to reporters before distributing calendars at the Jelapang market here, the Ipoh Barat MP pointed out that Dr Porntip had said in court that the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock was 80% homicide.
Kulasegaran was commenting on Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar’s statement that Lim was being investigated for allegedly saying that Teoh was murdered.
On another matter, Kulasegaran called on the Elections Commission to introduce automatic voter registration.
“If the EC is serious in ensuring qualified people become registered voters, it must push for automatic registration,” he said.
