 | September 14, 2012

This is third time in 13 months the state DAP headquarters has came under attack.

GEORGE TOWN: The new RM3 million state DAP headquarters, Wisma DAP and service centres of Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and three other party assemblymen were found splashed with red paint this morning.

Video footage from CCTV cameras at Wisma DAP in Jalan Rangoon here revealed that two men wearing crash helmets have thrown at least six packets of red paint on the roller shutter and floor of the building at 1.15am. The packets were found at the site.

The service centres of Lim in Jalan Air Itam, Jagdeep Singh Deo in Jalan Datuk Keramat, Ng Wei Aik in Lorong Seratus Tahun and Koay Teng Hai in Pulau Tikus were also splashed with red paint.

A car parked near Ng’s centre was also smeared with red paint. Packets of red paint were also found at the service centres.

A police report has been lodged at the Jalan Patani police station.

At a press conference at Wisma DAP, Lim said he was shocked with the attack, adding that it was first time the service centre of a state chief minister was vandalised

Calling on DAP and Pakatan Rakyat members to remain calm, he said such attacks would not hamper the coalition spirits.

“It was organised and systematic attacks,” he told newsmen. Lim called on the police to probe into case and nab the culprits as soon as possible.

Also present were state party chairman Chow Kon Yeow, Air Itam assemblyman Wong Hon Wai, Jagdeep, Ng and Koay.

Chow described the red paint attack as an unhealthy political culture tantamount to a threat against DAP representatives.

This is third time in 13 months the state DAP headquarters has came under attack.

On Aug 4 last year, the old headquarters in Jalan Talipon was splashed with red paint before it was torched four days later.
