KUALA LUMPUR – Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng faces fresh allegations of yet again portraying Johor as being unsafe.
TV3’s Bulletin Utama last night played an audio recording of Lim saying: “So you don’t have to worry about your safety when you come to Penang.
“In Johor, if you are Singaporean, you are likely to get kidnapped”.
The DAP secretary-general had been in the hot soup for allegedly saying in an interview, with an Australian radio station, that Johor was not a safe state where the chances of being kidnapped was high.
He had since denied uttering the remarks.
Lim’s remarks on Johor the first time around, however, drew the ire of many, including Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who had said Lim should not look down and sabotage other states.
Muhyiddin said Lim’s action in undermining Johor would give a bad image of Malaysia and would also affect other states.
