PETALING JAYA: An MCA leader has accused the DAP of misleading the public about a public appeal that has raised RM1 million in donations purportedly to provide bail for DAP leader Lim Guan Eng, who faces trial on corruption charges.
Ti Lian Ker, head of the MCA religious bureau, contrasted the appeal with the lack of concern for the late Sarawak DAP leader Wong Ho Leng’s need of funds for cancer treatment two years ago.
He also accused the DAP of not being accountable for funds raised in 1984 for a campaign to save the historic Bukit Cina in Malacca from redevelopment.
Ti questioned why it was the DAP making the appeal when the corruption charges against Lim were about his personal purchase of a private residence.
Ti accused the DAP of never having accounted for the public funds raised in the DAP’s “Save Bukit Cina” campaign in 1984. He said the Bukit Cina redevelopment issue was settled without any money involved and the money should have been returned to the donors when the issue was resolved.
“DAP failed to be accountable to the Bukit Cina trust funds,” he said urging the public to wake up to what he called “their donation lies”.
