#PRNSarawak : Moves to smear SUPP, says ex-chief Peter Chin

Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) former president Tan Sri Peter Chin claimed there are moves to smear the party's image ahead of polling day on Saturday.

At a press conference on Thursday, Chin said Sarawak Report had published an article with a picture that allegedly showed him receiving a cheque to be used for the election from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Chin said the article was an attempt to create suspicion against SUPP.

"This is clearly an attempt to smear the good image of the SUPP and meddle in the affairs of our party.

"As the past president of the SUPP I must explain that we have never received any monetary contribution as that is against the law.

"I urge voters not to be swayed by such sinister tactics to cast suspicion on the SUPP," he said.

Last week, Senadin SUPP said it had uncovered attempts by certain rivals to smear its image and cheat voters in the hotseat of Senadin in Miri City.

SUPP-BN candidate for Senadin, Datuk Lee Kim Shin, said  certain people had been distributing RM200 to each voter and claiming that the money was from SUPP.

He said these people are saying that they are agents of SUPP so that they can collect the voters' MyKad and vote on their behalf.

Lee said he had alerted the police on the matter.
