KULAI: Just two weeks after receiving threats from fraudulent unions, the family home of the deputy head of the MCA’s National Complaints and Services Bureau, Chua Jian Boon, was splashed with red paint.
He said his family informed him of the incident at 11 p.m. Thursday (October 8), as he came home from work.
“I arrived to see that my brother and father’s car had been splashed with red paint. I decided to call the police immediately,” he said when contacted here on Friday ( October 8).
He added that the culprit also left a note saying “this is just the start” outside the house.
“I made a police report to the Kulai Police Headquarters and plan to hold a press conference regarding this matter,” he added.
Chua, who also filmed the incident, said he hoped Johor Police Chief Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay would look into the case and arrest those involved.
Meanwhile, Johor MCA Youth chief Ling Tian Soon, who was also at the scene, said the MCA will continue to protect those who call for protection and help from such threats.
“Chua has done a great job dealing with complaints from the public and helping those in need of protection.
“We will continue to do so and we will not back down from this threat,” he said, adding that aid was given to all victims regardless of race and religion.
Meanwhile, Comm Ayob confirmed the police report and said the case was under investigation under section 427 of the Penal Code for causing damage through acts of wrongdoing.
The offense was punishable by imprisonment for up to five years or a fine or both on conviction.
Earlier, on September 23, Chua’s 58-year-old father reportedly received a threat from a stranger telling him that Chua should stop taking care of other people’s affairs or risk having his house burned down.
