DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur) has accused the Malay newspaper, Utusan Malaysia, of planting the idea of assassinating members of parliament through a story published in Mingguan Malaysia, its Sunday edition.
Lim said the fictitious story entitled “Politik baru YB J” was aimed at Teresa Kok.
“The YB Josephine, who is the main character in the piece, actually referred to Teresa Kok,” he said.
YB Josephine takes an anti-Islamic stand in the story and is killed by an alleged supporter at a function held in her stronghold.
The assassin approaches her on stage and then shoots her three times in the chest.
“I know it is creative licence, but the author had clearly planted the idea of political assassination. He was being inciteful,” Kit Siang said during the debate on the budget.
