Charges against Lim Guan Eng this morning are “dirty politics”, aimed to tarnish the former finance minister and bring down DAP and subsequently, the Pakatan Harapan coalition, said his son, Marcus.
Marcus alleged this morning that the arrest of his father was part of a political scheme to undermine the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.
Taking to Facebook last night, the 25-year-old accused the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government of framing Guan Eng but vowed to fight back against dirty politics.
He said the family has been expecting such action since the collapse of the PH government in February, which eventually materialised last night when his father was arrested at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) head office in Putrajaya.
“Their plan is simple, to frame and capture those leaders who wouldn’t bow down to their dirty scheme.
“Their motive is clear, to dismantle DAP, ultimately destroying PH. They thrive on dirty politics, making the right wrong, and the wrong right. Unfortunately, this is how politics work here,” the junior Lim said while assuring supporters that they would fight against such action.
Guan Eng’s wife, Betty Chew, uploaded a blackout image in her social media with “God is watching”.
