MP for Jelutong, RSN Rayer, DAP National Chairman Lim Guan Eng and other Penang state assemblyman and women at a press conference on Thursday, June 1 after Rayer lodged a police report against Kedah Menteri Besar, Muhammad Sanusi Nor on his continuing statements that Penang belongs to Kedah. “Do not disturb, do not threathen the people of Penang. It is a sovereign state,” Guan Eng reminded Sanusi.

GEORGETOWN, June 1 – DAP’s Member of Parliament for Jelutong RSN Rayer today lodged a police report against the Menteri Besar of Kedah, Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Nor, for disturbing the peace of the people in Penang with his remarks that Penang belonged to Kedah and his call to amend the Federal Constitution to remove the separate identity Penang has as a state.

Speaking to reporters at the Daerah Timur Laut Police Headquarters here after making a police report, Rayer said since the country’s independence, no one has ever made a statement such as what Sanusi has. He also said today’s report was the second police report he has made against Sanusi.

He was accompanied by DAP National Chairman and Bagan MP Lim Guan Eng as well as other members of the state assembly.

Speaking at the press conference, Guan Eng took to task the Kedah MB, saying that he was disturbing the peace of Penang and that his statement was highly dangerous, unconstitutional and an offence.

Penang has always been one of the states in the country and represented in the national flag.

“His remarks are insensitive to the people of Penang…this is not the first time but he has been making such remarks again and again. He never made such a statement when PN was ruling. He is unaware of his mistake and has once again started making these remarks purposely to gain political mileage. He is a dangerous man as his statement can disturb the harmony of the country.”

He has also shown disrespect to Council of Rulers, and is posing a threat to the social fabric of this country, Guan Eng said, adding that the people of Penang will not be silent on this issue and will defend the state.
