Naughty Tian Chua

A Malaysian court convicted a prominent opposition lawmaker Thursday of biting a policeman at an illegal protest — a verdict that could cause him to lose his Parliament seat.

Tian Chua was found guilty in the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court on charges of hurting a policeman who tried to stop him from entering Parliament in December 2007 to protest a constitutional amendment.

Chua, a longtime ally of top opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, faces a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a fine. The court was expected to sentence him later Thursday.

Legislators who are jailed for a year or fined more than 2,000 ringgit ($600) must vacate their Parliament seat.

Chua, a member of the People’s Justice Party led by Anwar, has denied biting the policeman.

“They fabricate this story,” Chua told reporters Thursday, calling the charge “ridiculous.”

Magistrate’s Court Judge Faizi Che Abu ruled that Chua’s testimony had inconsistencies and was not credible.

Chua’s testimony had inconsistencies and was not credible, wakakaka! Hardly surprising!

Recall also the photoshop photograph of an alleged French dinner for three? Guess who was the author, wakakaka!

Now, he has been publicly called a LIAR by Lim Guan Eng for saying that DAP had agreed to PAS implementing hudud in Kelantan and Terengganu – see TMI’s Guan Eng calls Tian Chua ‘irresponsible, unethical’ for lying over hudud issue.

TMI reported Lim GE saying: … DAP leaders were shocked when Tian Chua declared in Chinese newspapers that implementing hudud laws in Kelantan and Terengganu is PR policy because it was agreed to by PR and DAP.

“Tian Chua’s lies were given wide coverage in the mainstream media despite it not being supported by facts or documentation.

“I have personally spoken to opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim conveying the DAP top leadership’s anger at the lies spread by Tian Chua,” he said in a statement today.

Anwar had reaffirmed in both his private conversation with me and public statements yesterday that DAP had consistently opposed the implementation of hudud laws on Muslims in Kelantan, he said.

“DAP leaders hope that Tian Chua will stop repeating such lies in view of Anwar publicly reaffirming that DAP had never agreed to the implementation of hudud laws by PAS anywhere,” he said.

More interesting would be WHY Tian Chua has lied on the matter?

Aha, he did so in Chinese newspapers’ reports?

I suspect he might have wanted to sabo DAP kau kau in the eyes of the Chinese, wakakaka.

Look, there’s no love lost between the PKR Chinese faction headed by Tian Chua and DAP for the reason that the PKR Chinese lust after DAP’s blue ribbon seats, wakakaka.

The truth about PKR (if we leave out the PRM component) is that it has been KeADILan has been UMNO. It undeniably possesses UMNO genes and characteristics though it claims to be multi-racial, a claim somewhat discredited by Anwar Ibrahim’s poor treatment of many of its erstwhile Indian members who left in droves – now, if they hadn’t, would Azmin Ali have a chance of becoming party deputy president?

Even Saifuddin Nasution, current candidate for the PKR deputy president post, has very recently confessed that PKR is principally a Malay party, … and if I may add, with some sprinkling of Chinese and Indian coriander (Bahasa ‘penjilang’, Penang Hokkien ‘uan suoi’, Canto ‘yimsai’) on the PKR soup kambing, wakakaka.

So what has that got to do with Tian Chua?

Now, while the ex-UMNO members represent the power core of PKR and have undeniably dominate party policies and decision making, the nons like Tian Chua and his Chinese coriander dressing, wakakaka, don’t. And precisely because of this, he and his ‘yim sai’ cohorts wakakaka want so desperately to demonstrate their relevance in the party.
