Remember how Hee was quoted in theSun as saying that what she was brandishing was actually a hotel key chain and pen drive?
So what do you make of this? The Star now carries this report of her saying that the device was actually flung at her and she was merely demanding to know whether it was Aulong assembly member Yew Tian Hoe who had thrown it at her.
Hee: It was not my pepper spray
IPOH: Perak Deputy Speaker and Jelapang assemblyman Hee Yit Foong said the pepper spray device she had been accused of using to attack a Pakatan Rakyat rep with during last Thursday’s chaotic Assembly was not hers.
She claimed the device had been flung at her earlier during a fracas.
She said she does not know how to even operate such a device, and that she had held it up to Aulong assemblyman Yew Tian Hoe to demand if he was the one who had flung it at her.
Anyway, this focus on the pepper spray is just media red herring. The larger issue is this: dozens of police and plainclothes men entering the Dewan and dragging away a presiding Speaker. Why don’t the mainstream media focus attention on that?
