Events in the last 24 hours have taken a disturbing turn. Among others, we have received reports that of intimidating and bullying tactics:
1. Several illegal banners instigating unspecified actions against the Tawau MP Datuk Dr. Chua Soon Bui appeared overnight in Tawau,
2. A demonstration at the office of the Tawau MP will be held on Tuesday, June 24, which was originally to be held after the last Friday prayers.
3. At an UMNO gathering of several hundred in Kota Kinabalu on Sunday, aggressive words touching on racial incitement were used,
4. Short Message Services (sms) and unidentified phone calls implying threats to the two MPs and their aides,
In view of this disturbing turn of events, SAPP has taken extra caution for the safety of the MPs by calling them back to the party HQ in Kota Kinabalu for consultations on the next course of action, including the safety of their persons and families and the security of their offices.
