Press statement from Datuk Seri Tan Chai Ho regarding MCA

I must thank Datuk Seri Tan Chai Ho who is the MCA Central Committee Members cum MCA Bandar Tun Razak’s division chairman and 4 other MCA members:

1) Datuk Ei Kim Hock (MCA Kuala Langat Division Chairman)

2) Loh Seng Kok (Former MP of Kelana Jaya and Central Committee Member)

3) Koo Chin Nam (MCA Putrajaya Division Chairman)

4) Daniel Ling (MCA Segambut Division Youth Chief )

for taking own initiatives to hold a press conference about the resurfacing of the DVD and the attitude of the President, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

I have taken the liberty to place the press statement given during the press conference into my blog.


PRESS STATEMENT BY DATUK SERI TAN CHAI HO

The Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar had on 25th February 2009 stated in Parliament that the police is still unable to identify the person behind the recording of the Chua Soi Lek’s DVD.

He further reiterated that the police had completed their investigation and the Attorney General had on the 28th August 2008 decided to close the case.

It has been more than a year since the sex DVD matter. Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek had apologized and relinquished all his posts. However, on the 18th October 2008, Datuk Seri Dr. Chua made a successful comeback in the MCA election.

MCA leaders and members have voted for him to continue to serve the party and the nation despite the despicable action of certain quarters to continue practicing gutter politics.

The sex DVD incident occurred a year ago. Despite this, there are people who claimed to have high moral grounds and had used the same sex DVD to carry out political assassination.

We believe those who had surreptiously carried out the alleged recording of private life of citizens, or distributed pornographic material should be prosecuted and condemned by all right thinking people.

The sex DVD should not be used to tarnish the image of Datuk Seri Dr. Chua who had been elected in MCA by popular votes.

It is not good for the party and its members if one continues to harp on the issue.

A lot of party members and Chinese community are concerned with MCA’s reform plans and its future.

We urge all MCA leaders to stress on party closing rank and party unity to face the challenges of the economic downturn.

The party’s agenda is above personal agenda and vendetta.

我要感谢马华中委兼敦拉萨区会主席拿督斯里陈财和、马华乌鲁冷岳区会主席拿督余金福、中委卢诚国、布城区会主席许振南以及泗岩沫马青区团团长林世进,召开记者会针对再次流传的光碟以及总会长对待该事件的态度,反映基层的心声。

我也得到上述领袖的同意,张贴他们在记者会所发表的声明:

关于马华署理总会长拿督斯里蔡细历医生的性爱光碟事件,内政部长拿督斯里赛哈密前天在国会的书面回答中已说明,由于警方无法确认偷拍蔡细历的黑手,因此总检察署已在2008年8月28日年决定结案,不会采取进一步的行动。

不过,此事件沉寂多时后,由别有居心者旧事重提及散播,目的是打击蔡细历在党内和社会的形象和地位,灭杀他的政治生涯。

蔡细历在去年一月已经辞去官职和党职,也至诚向全国人民道歉寻求原谅,并要求大家给予他重新为党和社会服务的机会。蔡细历过后在10月的马华中央改选重新获得代表的委托,中选为马华署理总会长。这项选绩向我们传达了明确的信息:

1)马华党员和代表认同蔡细历的政治意愿和才华
2)马华的代表把光碟事件的议论和领袖的才能划清界限
3)马华的代表要蔡细历继续为党和社会服务

光碟事情已发生超过一年,如今再次在城中流传,明显地潜存着政治迫害的目的,此风不可助长!我们不能容许偷拍和利用光碟对任何人进行人格谋杀的行为,更不能让有心人借助这种歪风击跨其竞争者,包括政治领袖。因此,我们要求全民强烈谴责偷拍、录制和散播光碟的做法,促请执法当局务必揪出幕后黑手,将他们绳之于法。否则,或有更多优秀的政治领袖遭受这种政治屠杀,最终让人民和国家受苦。

我们也认为,有心人借助死灰复燃的光碟舆论,来打击蔡细历在党内的信誉,这种恶行也形同摧毁党的形象,以及削弱党员的士气。

我们常常教诲后人,知错能改,善莫大焉。我们能给予一个曾被治罪的人第二次机会,并协助他重新做人。蔡细历已为他过失付出代价,并勇于承担后果。如今,他愿为党和国家继续作出贡献,我们应该给予他新的机会,而不是苦苦纠缠旧事,置他于绝路。

我们也了解到,很多党员甚至华社都很关注马华的改革计划,及党的未来。马华必须正视308大选后党所处的颓势,全球的经济困境已让人民苦不堪言。因此,我们吁请马华领导层能抛开个人恩怨,以国家、人民和党为重,团结和整合马华,让马华以更强大的力量面对当前的艰巨挑战。

SEEK DIVINE FORGIVENESS

"To err is human, to forgive divine"
Let's get hooked on to the right vine
To drink from the cup the healing wine
To turn matters around to make them fine

MCA is still the same. Kow tow to UMNO for the past 50 years. Waiting for handouts from UMNO for its leaders. Ministers with no voice. Cannot talk in the open. Only whisper. Big brother is listening. Always head bent. Stand up, look up and tell it like it is. If Datuk Chua SL wants to do anything then take MCA out of BN! That will give you a BIG chip to bargain!

I hope more MCA leaders will come out in support of Dr.Chua, a person who has brain and dares to speak up his mind. Kudos to Datuk Seri Tan Chai Ho and his co. for making such a convincing press statement.

Kudos Datuk Seri Tan Chai Ho for saying we should be against gutter politics to bring down good leaders and capable politicians like Dr. Chua . Dr. Chua is not only supported by MCA members alone, there are many ordinary citizens not aligned to any political party supports Dr. Chua for his good work and contributions.

Dr. Chua, don't give up...the fight is just the beginning.

I support you, Dr. Chua BUT
would you honour your campaign pledge to support your President?

You DID promise to BUT so far I've only heard you scolding your President for not giving you a minister post.

Maybe you should scold UMNO for upholding Islam Hadhari morals.

To the present MCA leaders, when are you all going to realize that Ong Tee Keat is NOT FIT to lead MCA?

It is high time that you all voice out your stand and do the right thing.

If you love MCA, then let OTK know that what he is doing (sidelining the deputy and others)is detrimental to MCA. OTK does not understand what closing ranks means.

Welcome to my Blog

As a concerned MCA member, I am trying my best to help in the process of rebuilding and repositioning of the party.

Therefore, I welcome party members and members of public to post your constructive suggestions and opinions on my blog on how to rebuild and reform the party, eventually enabling MCA to regain support from all party members and the community.


Thank you for your suggestions.
