On Sunday, two reporters – Lee Hong Chun, 25, and Adam Chew, 29 – from Kwong Wah Yit Poh were injured during the gathering held to show support for the anti-Lynas Himpunan Hijau 2.0 rally in Kuantan. - TheStar
Watch the video above and take note that most of the Chinese reporters and photographers accompanying DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng are wearing GREEN T-Shirts.
I'm not urging the police to arrest those who wear green but it appears as though most of the Chinese press reporters or a considerable number among them were obviously backing the Chief Minister who kicked of the provocation which led to the scuffle.
In the video above, it appears that a well built Chinese boy in Green T-shirt started the fight with a kungfu-style sidekick on another unidentified person - who was not wearing a Green T-shirt.
I was made to understand that the Chinese boy in Green T-shirt is one of the journalist reportedly injured in the scuffle. The scuffle appears to have started after Lim Guan Eng uttered the words "Ini Umno tak payah cakap lah".
There is talk among the press corp in Penang that the injured duo were hardcore Lim Guan Eng sympatisers who were behaving like the DAP secretary general's bodyguards during the incident.
The National Union of Journalist may want to investigate such claims to prove their professionalism and to prevent some journalist from prostituting themselves ... as accused by a DAP leader recently.
While the NUJ investigates the conduct of the Kwong Wah Yit Poh reporters and photographers during the anti-Lynas protest in Penang, I hope the police provide adequate protection to the two injured reporters.
Police must ensure the safety of the two injured reporters as desperate politicians could do the unthinkable for political milage.
I'm sure those with raw power wouldn't want to let go off it easily.
DAP's irresponsible abuse of Teoh Beng Hock's death is a good example. Just beAWARE!
p/s Still wondering if it was suicide or murder.
