KUCHING: Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) deputy president Peter Nyarok is in the soup for allegedly uttering not only seditious words, but threatening a PKR leader from Peninsular Malaysia. Bungan Ekie, the secretary of PKR Saratok division, has lodged a police report against Nyarok last week at the Saratok police station.
Nyrok, who is defending his Krian seat for the fourth time, was alleged to have said, “nadai guna Tambi nya ditu, temu bunh enggau iya” a day before the nomination day. Literally it means “useless for the Indian to be here, kill him then he knows”. Nyarok was referring to the presence of Jeyakumar, a Selangor government exco member, who was in Saratok to give support to PKR candidate Ali Biju in the Krian constituency.
The other candidates vying for the seat are Anthony Liman of Sarawak National Party (Snap) and Banyie Anak Briak, an independent candidate. Nyarok was also alleged to have uttered similar words when he met face to face with Jeyakumar during the campaign.
