DAP campaign lorry stolen

DAP Campaign Lorry

(The Star) – A DAP campaign lorry borrowed from a party supporter was reported to have been stolen early this morning in Johor Baru.

DAP Youth chief and Negri Sembilan party chairman Anthony Loke said that although they were not entirely sure if the lorry had been towed away by authorities or stolen, the latter was highly likely.

He said the five-tonne box van was last seen by party workers parked outside Gelang Patah DAP Wanita Chief Ng Siam Luang’s shop in Taman Tun Aminah, Skudai at 1am on Saturday.

The party workers had been loading the truck with campaign materials for a ceramah in Seremban later.

“When the party workers came back to the shop at 6am, the lorry was gone,” he told The Star.

He added that it was strange a thief would steal a lorry adorned with DAP stickers.

Loke said the party would lodge a police report on the matter soon.

In JOHOR BARU, Gelang Patah DAP Wanita Chief Ng Siam Luang said she remembered locking the lorry’s doors and checking the alarm system before heading home.

“When my daughter went out at around 7am, she noticed that the lorry was no longer parked there but thought that one of our members had driven the vehicle away as we were supposed to go to Seremban for a 4pm ceramah,” she told reporters.
