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.
Last Thursday’s Perak State Assembly had degenerated into a fracas, with Yew claiming that Hee -- whose resignation from DAP was a key factor that ultimately saw the state falling to Barisan Nasional hands -- had attacked him with a pepper spray device.
Yew has lodged a police report over the incident.
