After the sitting this morning, Nizar walked up to where Ganesan was presiding in the Dewan and criticised him for allegedly allowing police “to intrude into the Dewan”, saying that as a lawyer, Ganesan should have known better. “You are a pengecut,” Nizar admonished Ganesan, who responded with a smile.
A source at the scene said he did not notice any uniformed police inside the Dewan itself although six to eight men in blue attire were stationed near the Speaker’s desk.
Ngeh later complained in a press conference about the heavy police presence at the Dewan, according to assembly member Idham Lim in his blog. Sivakumar, for his part, claimed that police tried to grab his shirt and bag but they failed, wrote Idham.
The ousted Speaker also expressed unhappiness that the media and bloggers were not allowed into the Dewan proper but confined to a viewing area.
