SHAH ALAM - PKR vice-president Tian Chua rose to fame in the late 90s when images of him sitting defiantly in front of a police water cannon truck were splashed across the globe during the height of the reformasi movement in 1998.
In a 2007 demonstration in front of the Parliament, Tian Chua was alleged to bit a police constable's arm which had led to him being charged two years later and sentenced to his six-month jail and RM3,000 fine but upon his appeal, the High Court had later reduced it to just a RM2,000 fine in 2010.
This saw him being disqualified from the 2018 general elections.
He talks to Sinar Daily Politifically Frank segment on his political future as the rift with Batu MP P Prabakaran widens, PKR's future and President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
