Further to the Lim Guan Eng – Johor Crimes hoo-hah, the BN-MSM Complex is going full tilt to play up this issue, bringing in noted BN tool Ng Yen Yen. (It’s to distract from the real issues, see my explanation here.)
KUALA LUMPUR – Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen has urged the Penang government to pay serious attention to the safety of tourists visiting the state.
The reminder came in the wake of an incident in which a Saudi Arabian tourist, Ali Shamrani, 30, sustained a broken hip and bodily injuries when the jet ski he was riding was hit by another jet ski operated by two Indian nationals at the Batu Feringghi beach in Penang Saturday.
“I have said this before and I will say it again, that the safety of tourists is important to the tourism industry because we have been telling the world that our country is safe and stable.
“So, I would like to remind Lim (Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng) not to poke his nose into other state’s safety affairs, but instead to mind the safety affairs in Penang first.”
If the situation persists, Dr Ng said she was worried that not only Penang’s tourism sector would be jeopardised, the income of local people who were depending on the industry would also be affected
Tell that to Johor, Ng Yen Yen!
