PETALING JAYA: DAP has launched a fund-raising campaign for the RM1 million bail imposed on its secretary-general Lim Guan Eng by the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court.

It is asking supporters to donate RM10 each in a week-long campaign starting yesterday to raise pay another RM500,000 to the Court on Monday.

Lim faces another two charges from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Malaysia on Monday and Tuesday next week.

“We call upon all Malaysians to unite to fight the political persecution of Lim Guan Eng,” DAP national publicity chief Tony Pua said in a statement.

“We are launching a RM10 one-week fund-raising campaign to pay for Lim’s bail and to repay the amounts we borrowed. We believe that Malaysians will stand up for righteousness to ensure that justice will prevail.”

Any surplus received from the donations will go towards the General Election to fight the backdoor government and return the mandate to Malaysians who voted for change in 2018, Pua added.

“This is not the first time that Guan Eng has had to fight trumped-up charges by those in power in the court of law,“ said Pua, who is also Damansara MP.

“He is now charged for allegedly ‘asking’ for a 10% profit cut in the undersea tunnel project which was awarded via open tender and evaluated by the most senior Penang and federal government civil servants.

“We call upon all Malaysians to unite to fight the political persecution of Lim. We believe that Malaysians will stand up for righteousness to ensure that justice will prevail.”

Donations can be made to “DAP Malaysia” @ Public Bank 3063828309.
