Police Report was made against Utusan Malaysia Columnist NOT Teresa Kok and "MCA Key Operative" did NOT make the Police Report
The so-called "MCA key operative" Arthur So and Seri Serdang assemblyman Datuk Mohd Satim Diman’s special assistant Kuan Chee Heng, who lodged a police report against an Utusan Malaysia columnist, have demanded an apology from DAP’s Ipoh Timur MP Lim Kit Siang for alleging that the report led to the detention of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok under the Internal Security Act (ISA).--- End of Update ---
Kuan, who is not with any political party, said he had lodged a police report against columnist Zaini Hassan over his article titled "Azan, Jawi, JAIS, UiTM dan ba-alif-ba-ya", and that it was NOT against Teresa Kok.
Kuan said at a joint press conference with Arthur So yesterday that if Lim Kit Siang refuses to explain and apologise, they will resort to legal action.
Arthur So, 63, who was named the "key operative of MCA" in earlier reports, clarified that he was MCA Kampung Bersatu branch chairman but he had quit the party in September last year. He said he did NOT lodge any police report.
"I met Kuan outside the police station on the day he lodged the report against Utusan Malaysia and I was invited to take a group photo with him. Since Lim Kit Siang made a mistake, he must apologise to us."
On Sunday, MCA vice-president Datuk Ong Tee Keat had also challenged Lim Kit Siang to prove his allegation, failing which he should apologise to the party.Read here for more

".... on 18th September 2008 - the eve of Teresa Kok’s seven-day incarceration – I (Lim Kit Siang) said that a key MCA operative in Puchong had lodged a police report against Teresa Kok on Thursday, 11th September 2008, over the azan controversy which triggered her ISA detention the next day on Sept. 12 at 11.18pm.
Is/was the “key MCA operative in Puchong” a MCA member?
Let MCA leaders tell Malaysians.
Teresa had already revealed the identity of the “MCA operative in Puchong” concerned at the KL-Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.
The ball is now in the court of the MCA leaders. ..."
