DAP’s disciplinary committee chairman maintains Tuan Tat’s removal is not his personal agenda.
PETALING JAYA: DAP’s disciplinary committee chairman Tan Kok Wai today denied allegations that he wanted to boost his image by removing DAP’s former Sepang parliamentary liaison committee member, Tan Tuan Tat.
“It was a unanimous decision by the five man disciplinary committee. We don’t work individually,” said Kok Wai who is also Cheras MP when contacted.
Kok Wai was commenting on the allegations made by Tuan Tat on Friday after the latter was removed by the party on Aug 17. Tuan Tat however maintained that he quit the party.
Tuan Tat also brought six of the potential members on Friday.
On Aug 17 Kok Wai had confirmed Tuan Tat’s removal for falsifying documents and creating phantom members.
“We verified and confirmed that he falsified the membership forms,” said Kok Wai who also declined to state the event during which Tuan Tat had created membership forms.
“It is a long story. We don’t need to go into that.”
When asked on the six people whose applications were rejected, Kok Wai said: “They are ex-supporters of DAP and MCA.”
“We have no knowledge about them.”
On Tuan Tat’s allegation that a female DAP staff had forced his 80-year-old mother to sign a letter from the party and was not given a copy, Kok Wai maintained that it was a fabrication.
“To my knowledge, we sent none,” he said.
Kok Wai also accused Tuan Tat of fabricating the allegation involving the latter’s 80-year-old mother.
“He likes to forge, fabricate and can falsify documents, surely he can do this thing as well.
“Tan Tuan Tat’s trustworthiness is zero,” said Kok Wai.
