IPOH: The Perak Pakatan Rakyat Government will form the first “Free MP Teresa Kok State Assembly Caucus” today.
The formation, set to convene at the State Secretariat at 11am, will see all the 31 Pakatan assemblymen joining in.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin said the state wanted to spearhead the formation since the ISA detention camp was located in Kamunting, Perak.
“We are also inviting all Barisan Nasional assemblymen to come forward and join this caucus for it has the nation’s interests at heart.
“This is not a political matter but one that affects everyone, even journalists and bloggers,” he said after meeting DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang yesterday.
Lim, as co-chairman of the “Free MP Teresa Kok Parliamentary Caucus” formed on Wednesday, met with Nizar to discuss the formation of a similar caucus in the state assembly.
When contacted, state Umno secretary and Manong assemblyman Datuk Ramly Zahari and Perak Umno Youth chief and Sungai Manik assemblyman Zainol Fadzi Paharudin said they would wait for the state party leaderships directive before deciding on whether to join the caucus.
Chenderiang assemblyman Dr Mah Hang Soon, who is the state’s sole MCA assemblyman, said he “might” join the caucus provided that it was solely aimed towards releasing Kok from detention.
“It is not right to use such method of detention and I am against it.
In Taiping, its MP Nga Kor Ming said the ISA detention centre here would be turned into a museum should Pakatan Rakyat take over the administration of the country. Nga said he had discussed the matter with Mohammad Nizar and the latter had agreed to the idea.
He was speaking at a candle-light vigil held outside the Taiping DAP service centre on Wednesday night seeking the release of Kok, Malaysia Today news portal editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin and five Hindraf leaders detained under the ISA.
