MPPP Councillors to take action against Jessie Ooi


The Councillors of the Penang Municipal Council have demanded Jessie Ooi to retract her baseless accusations against the Penang MPPP or face action.


In a press conference held on 22 February, 2012 MPPP Councillors and MPPP Traffic Warden have spoken up against the baseless accusations thrown against them by Jessie Ooi during the Q&A at the debate between Chief Minister and Secretary-General of DAP, Lim Guan Eng and MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek. Records showed that no car was towed at 10.30 pm at Jalan Pantai as alleged by Jessie Ooi.

MPPP also revealed that there are ample parking available at Jalan Pantai which includes a 203-parking bay complex.

Councillor Ong Ah Teong welcome the debate but condemned the baseless accusations by Jessie Ooi who claimed that cars were towed away at 10.30 pm which ended up with bloodied fights. Instead, a traffic wardened said that so far the only incident is one which a MPPP enforcement officer was hit with a helmet.

A motion will be tabled at the full council meeting this coming Friday to decide if the councillors will take further action against Jessie Ooi if she refused to retract and apologise for making the accusations against MPPP.
