PETALING JAYA: A gag order has been issued to party central executive committee members against making any statement on the alleged involvement of Perak DAP duo Nga Kor Ming and Ngeh Koo Ham in a logging business venture in Kelantan.
Several CEC members said they had been “told to zip it”.
Nga, who, along with his cousin Ngeh, had reportedly been ordered by the CEC to explain the business deal, said those who divulged information over what had transpired during the meeting to outsiders were “not fit to be members”.
“This is because they would have failed to preserve the party's confidentiality,” he said.
Both Nga and Ngeh, who is also DAP deputy secretary-general, have not denied holding shares in Upayapadu Plantation Sdn Bhd, which was involved in planting rubber clone trees on a 4,259ha land in Kelantan.
“But I dare swear that both Ngeh and I have not taken even an inch of land from the state government,” said Nga, adding that the land was bought by Upayapadu and not as compensation for losing the Perak Mentri Besar post to PAS in 2008.
The duo, said Nga, had explained to the CEC via e-mail that it was “purely a business transaction”.
Claiming that the allegations were politically motivated to tarnish their image, he said nearly 100 investors were involved in buying over Upayapadu.
“They engaged both Ngeh and me as lawyers.
“Later, they invited us to invest in the company. The sales and purchase agreement was signed in April last year.
“It is a bona fide, purely commercial transaction. It is a private deal and has nothing to do with the Kelantan Government or the Perak Mentri Besar's post as we lost the state four years ago anyway,” he said, adding that they had every right to invest in a business as as Malaysia was a democratic country.

Intolerance is rampant at every level and in all age groups of the society, but it is more visible amongst the younger generation as our youth can be seen losing their altitude of patience over petty issues. We seriously need to think over it as what we are going to inculcate in them, which may help them seek success in future. Will it be tolerance or intolerance?

International Conference "Expose War Crimes – Criminalise War"
“Wars increasingly involve the killings of innocent people and are therefore, abhorrent and criminal. Killings in war are as criminal as the killings within societies in times of peace. Since killings in peace time are subject to the domestic law of crime, killings in war must likewise be subject to the international law of crimes. This should be so irrespective of whether these killings in war are authorised or permitted by domestic laws.”
