‘Engage in peaceful discussion’ - Star

GEORGE TOWN: Sept 29, 2008

Gerakan has condemned the Molotov cocktail assault on the home of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, saying it was an act of cowardice.

Party acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said there should be discussions in a democratic manner when conflicts arose.

He said anyone disagreeing with Kok’s stand should be brave enough to engage her in a peaceful debate.

“While Gerakan may not agree with the stand or approach of Kok and other opposition leaders on certain issues, we strongly defend their right to freedom of expression,” he said in a statement yesterday.
