KUCHING, Nov 25: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) president Voon Lee Shan wants the country’s law enforcement to be nonpartisan in carrying out duties and upholding law and order, in light of his recent arrest and court appearance.

Voon said the police are not to be seen at any times taking, or seen taking part directly or indirectly in politics.

“We hope the police do their work impartially in accordance to their powers given under the constitution and law,” he said during a press conference held at his office in Saradise, today.

According to Voon, he had not made any provocation to create public unrest on how they handled matter in the past few days.

He explained that they were just relaying the the message of saying ‘No To PAS’ to Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and also the Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“For this reason we want our message to be heard in other revenues. We want peaceful administration in the country, not a revolution,” he added.

Meanwhile, five people including Voon himself was arrested by the police for allegedly being involved in a protest convoy in Kuching town on Nov 23.

On Nov 24, Voon and four others were brought to court by the police for remand application.

However, on the same day (Nov 24), the remand application was withdrawn and all five individuals were released on police bail by the Magistrate court. — DayakDaily
