Chan Wei See, Asst. Editor (Feature) and Journalist Chen Shaua Fui decided to make a police report. Earlier on in the Media Centre, set up by the Ministry of Information, and over a period of time Chan and Chen and 4 Malaysiakini journalist were told to write on blank pieces of paper their names, organization and cellphone numbers. Upon completing that a staff of the centre gave each a white envelope. In each envelope were 6 RM50 notes. The 4 Malaysiakini reporters returned the money to the Media Centre’s staff who, with angelic innocence, claimed they are not aware of what transpired.
Chan and Chen too received a white envelope each with similar contents totaling RM300 in each envelope. They did not surrender the money as they decided to make a police report. That was why Haris and I accompanied them to make their police report..
And if you think this is an isolated case go HERE for another act of desperation presumably by the BN who are still thinking of ways and means, no matter how sinful, vile and despicable, to win this by-election.
