If DAP insist that the Johor principal be charged then its Secretary General should be charged also

The chauvinist DAP is at it again, still raking mud, still inciting Malaysians and blowing up an event which should have been left to rest. Now they are demanding that criminal charges be brought upon Cikgu Siti Inshah, as if the punishment that she received wasn't enough already, reminds me of Shylock who insists on his pound of flesh:

DAP wants Johor principal slapped with criminal charges

What does the DAP hope to achieve with this latest incitement campaign? Justice? More Chinese and Indian support? At what political price to the country's stability? If the DAP can play with racial sentiments, so can others who have been patient despite the antics of  Namewee the fella from Muar. I note that the DAP is strangely silent about Namewee, showing tacit support which no doubt showed the true racist colour of the purportedly multiracial party whose leadership line up are anything but.

If Lim Kit Siang wants Cikgu Siti be charged then I am asking the Government; what happened to the investigation on Kit Siang's son DAP Secretary General and Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, Lim Guan Eng who is being investigated over his remarks suggesting that Teoh Beng Hock was murdered when giving a speech in public, read here and here.

I remembered the then IGP Musa Hassan saying that "Guan Eng made the statement while an inquest was going on, adding that it was an attempt to create hatred among the public against a government agency". He had also said that Guan Eng had uttered seditious remarks which was an offence under the law and all the police were doing was to investigate it.

Those are tough words from the then No.1 Police Officer in Malaysia. However, the question is what has happened to the investigations on Lim Guan Eng in particular which started in January 2010, it is now 1 December 2010, almost 11 months had elapsed.

Lim Guan Eng's "remark" which is a subject of a Police investigation  is eerily similar to his long ago charge  of spreading false news and committing sedition which got Guan Eng convicted for 18 months, [refer (2000)2CLJ, Lim Guan Eng vs PP, Federal Court, Kuala Lumpur, Criminal Appeal No: M05-3-1998, 18 June 1999].
