KUCHING, Aug 14: Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) will see to Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How’s compensation to the party following his resignation.

PSB president Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh said in a statement that See is fully aware of the support and resources provided by PSB and its supporters.

“See is also fully aware of the commitments, both oral and written, that he had given to PSB before he was selected to be the candidate for PSB in the constituency of Batu Lintang.

“This included an undertaking to compensate the party if See chooses to resign after winning the seat as a PSB candidate.

“It also included an undertaking to resign from his position as an Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri if he resigns from PSB after winning the seat,” he said.

In addition, Wong noted that See is a senior lawyer, and the latter knew what he committed to in writing before he was given the Surat Watikah to represent PSB in the last Sarawak election.

“As a matter of principle, PSB will avail itself of all necessary actions and remedies in respect of the commitments made by See,” he remarked.

Today, State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Speaker Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohammad Asfia Awang Nassar announced that on Friday (Aug 12), he received See’s letter to resign from PSB with immediate effect. — DayakDaily
