Siti Mastura slapped with another defamation suit by the Lim familySINAR DAILY REPORTER
SHAH ALAM - Veteran DAP politician Tan Sri Lim Kit Siang will be taking legal action against Pas's Kepala Batas MP Siti Mastura Mohamad for allegedly making defamatory remarks against him.
During a ceramah earlier this month, Siti Mastura had claimed that Kit Siang was the cousin of the Communist Party of Malaya leader Chin Peng.
She also alleged that Kit Siang and his son, Guan Eng, were cousins of the late Singapore prime minister Lee Kuan Yew, and that Seputeh MP Teresa Kok was the cousin of Betty Chew, Guan Eng’s wife.
Following these allegations, six police reports were filed against Siti Mastura.
“ I have instructed my lawyers to institute legal action against Siti Mastura.
“This is more than an action to clear my name of defamation, but Siti Mastura has become a national disgrace as a media illiterate masquerading as an MP,” he said in a statement today.
He added that Siti Mastura’s claims were no different from the “wild and preposterous” allegations made previously by Pas president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang.
Hadi had claimed that he and DAP were anti-Malay, anti-Islam, anti-royalty and communist.
He suggested that Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek to introduce media literacy in schools so schoolchildren can discern between propaganda, censorship, bias, lies and hate speech from the truth.
Last week, Kok had also filed a defamation suit against Siti Mastura after she failed to respond to a letter of demand over the allegations made.
Siti Mastura Muhammad had also submitted "reference materials" to the police to support her claims of a communist-centric family conspiracy within DAP.
