KUCHING, Nov 23: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) president Voon Lee Shan claims to have been “arrested” by the police as he made his way down to the Kuching District Police Headquarters tonight at about 11pm.

He said he was called to the police station due to his involvement in a protest convoy that roamed the Kuching town around 5.30pm to 6pm today.

“Our protest convoy consisting of five vehicles started off at about 5.30pm at Padang Merdeka. We drove to Padungan and then to Gala City and after that, we went home.  It was just one round. The whole thing lasted for about 20 minutes. 

“Before we started our protest convoy, I gave a speech of about five minutes only,” Voon told DayakDaily.

One of the vehicles carrying a banner that says “Say no to PAS”.

Voon said one of party members by the name of Pang Aik Hua has already been arrested by about five to six policemen, who had gone to Pang’s house.

The police then asked Pang for Voon’s contact number.  

As Pang has already been taken to Kuching District Police Headquarters, Voon had taken the initiative to report himself, he said.

Today, a convoy of several vehicles were seen going around town, honking loudly, while a loudspeaker blared: “Sarawak does not want PAS”.  Many saw it but no one was certain who was behind it. 

The vehicles also carried banners stating ‘Say No to PAS’. — DayakDaily
