IPOH: News of Jelapang assemblyman Hee Yit Foong quitting the DAP to become an Independent has turned her into a target of harassment by Pakatan Rakyat supporters.
Around noon, a handful of DAP members and supporters turned up at Hee’s service centre along Jalan Simpang to put up a banner that reads: “Betrayer of Jelapang voters, Betrayer of Perak people” in several languages. The group left at about 12.30pm.
Meanwhile, there were rumours at about 4pm that Hee’s house had been broken into and that red paint had been splashed across her walls.
Clear target: The banner carrying the message from the Pakatan Rakyat supporters at Hee’s service centre in Ipoh Thursday.
A check on the residence, however, showed that the double-storey terrace house was intact with the doors and windows closed.
Hee’s official car, a Proton Perdana V6, was parked inside the locked compound.
Repeated attempts to contact Hee on her mobile phone and her house proved futile.
