GOOD! The Star was up to the challenge and printed this:
KUALA LUMPUR: The “mystery girl” behind allegations involving the son of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been identified as a renowned 21-year-old chess grandmaster from Britain, said Tony Pua.
Her name in Anya Corke, who is of Scottish-Chinese parentage.
The DAP national publicity secretary said this proved that the allegations by certain bloggers were “blatant lies”.
“If such gutter politics continue, it will only tarnish the country's image,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby here yesterday.
The young woman's identity was discovered by DAP IT manager Goh Kheng Teong, Pua said, adding that Corke was not only a foreigner but a renowned chess grandmaster who won championship titles between 2004 and 2008.
She was born in the United States and raised in Hong Kong. She is currently pursuing her studies in Wellesley College, a top liberal arts college in the US.
“They (bloggers) are willing to destroy the life of an innocent 16-year-old boy, bring the country into disrepute and defame a top achiever for political ends,” Pua said.
The allegations against Lim's son appeared in the blogs of Papagomo and mediapermatangpauh, depicting a photograph of the boy next to a cropped photo of an unidentified girl.
It was also alleged that the matter was settled with RM200,000.
Lim had refuted all allegations made against his son, adding that he and his wife were now helping the boy to “heal” following the episode.
Pua also called on Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin to apologise to Lim for his recent tweet over the issue.
“As a role model for the nation's youth, he (Khairy) must set an example and take responsibility by apologising for his tweet which is perpetuating the vicious lie,” he said.
DAP Parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang, who was present at the press conference, expressed concern at the level of gutter politics, describing the bloggers' lies as diabolical and heinous.
