MCA: Probe Jamal Yunos' 'beer smashing' antics

PETALING JAYA: Police have been urged to investigate Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos' unusual protest where he smashed several crates of beer outside the Selangor State government office on Thursday.
"The police must investigate and even charge Jamal and his troopers for attempted vandalism and destruction of public property, public nuisance, criminal intimidation and harassment, littering, and sedition,"  said MCA publicity spokesman Datuk Seri Ti Lian Ker in a statement.
Ti acknowledged that holding demonstrations is a right enshrined under the principles of democracy and freedom of expression, but pointed out that the police must be given a 10-day advance before holding peaceful assemblies.
"There are ways and means that we can express ourselves in the right manner and approach to maintain public order and harmony," he said.
Earlier today, Jamal held a protest over the cancelled "Better Beer Festival 2017" outside the Selangor state government office by smashing several crates of beer with a hammer.
After destroying the beer crates, Jamal and his group ignored calls by a security officer not to leave the broken bottles outside the gate.
Ti stressed that the protest was held under Jamal's personal capacity, and "is not the least bit condoned or supported by the BN (Barisan Nasional) coalition".
"Jamal will cost BN votes due to his insensitivity and failure to respect others. If he thinks that his violence will pander or earn him praises from voters, he's sadly and badly mistaken."
Meanwhile, the Shah Alam police is currently probing Jamal, who is also Sungai Besar Umno chief, over the beer-smashing protest.
"The Shah Alam police confirms that it received a report and the case is currently being investigated under Section 143 of the Penal Code," Shah Alam OCPD Shafien Mamat said in a statement.
If found guilty, Jamal faces a jail term of up to six months or a fine, or both.
