Teresa to be arrested again for insulting the egg?

The Seputeh UMNO Youth division lodged a police report today against Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, claiming she had insulted the Royal Malaysian Police and the egg, which is an essential food of the underprivileged. [The Sun, 24/9/08]

Teresa Kok, the DAP MP of Seputeh was released on September 19 after spending 7 days in detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA). She later revealed that while in police custody, the was served with what she likened as "dog food". She told reporters that she was only given 2 boiled eggs, cucumber and curry gravy; twice a day for lunch and dinner.

The Public Complaints Bureau (PCB) chief who is also Deputy Minister of the Prime Minister's Department, T. Murugiah has expressed his shock over Teresa's claims and assured her that he would look into the matter.

The PCB later discovered that only RM4.50 was allocated a day to each detainee for food in police lock-ups.

On September 24, Seputeh UMNO Youth lodged a police report against Teresa for insulting the Royal Malaysian Police and ... the egg at the Brickfields Police Station.

According to the division's deputy chief Alawi Dahalin, the Seputeh MP had insulted the egg which he explained, is an essential food to the underprivileged.

"Teresa Kok said she was served with food "fit for dogs". By saying this, she had insulted the police and the poor. Eggs are an important food for low-income earners and the poor. As an elected representative of the people she should not have said that," he said. [The Sun, 24/9/08]
Egg rights activist Alawi Dahalin and Seputeh UMNO Youth might as well speak up for the rights of cucumbers and curry gravies of this country.

Speaking in a forum, Teresa also attacked her critics for manipulating the matter in attempt to stir racial sentiments among the Malay community. Teresa had apparently offended the Malay community for using the word "dog" in her description of the food being served to her while in detention. The Seputeh MP was quick to clarify that she did not intend to offend the Malay community or anyone as it was just a figure of speech. [Malaysiakini, 25/9/08]

No action has been taken against Teresa so far.

Should the police arrest Teresa for insulting eggs, it was understood that Humpty Dumpty might also file a defamation suit against kindergarten teachers and children below the age of five.

    LOL. That's so funny. Next thing you know the monkeys will sue for insulting their bananas.

    Seriously though (pfff *seriously), if this gets through, they might start a chain of nonsensical suing or even starts an accosiation defending Egg (or cucumber etc) rights.

    Seputeh UMNO youth division is a silly lot. Uneducated and savage like reaction. Teresa has a duty as the people rep to clarify and rectify whatever shortcoming in the BN UMNO Govt. UMNO like to treat accused person as criminal b4 justice is done. It is fortunate that Teresa is detained under the UMNO devil ISA otherwise how detainees being fed by the police remain unknown to th public.

    Lets be realistic. The egg is mean to be abused. We break it, beat it, boil it, cooked it, hell! we even wait for the embryo to be partly grown before we rebus and eat it and sometimes we throw rotten eggs. So its mean to be abused. Yes it definitely fits the dog food too. If i am fedup of my eggs i just give the dogs to eat. I am not worried that one day the chickens will sue me. Not because that they are chickens but because i have solid prove that eggs can also qualify as dog food.

    Geez, the world world would laugh if they get to her about UMNO Youth lodging a report about the egg. Our country is really doomed if we have people like this around. Report police for the most silly things while ignoring important things to help the country and the poor. Shame on you UMNO Youth Seputeh.

    well..maybe some of the umno members are assigned particularly to examine every single word the opposition has said and see whether there is any space for them to accuse someone. and i guess there will be a big 'hoo-ha' if the opposition was the one who lodged such police report.

    Best example of "the empty vessels making the most noise"

    Need we say more?

    When there is nothing up there, you can't expect too much of them.

    No wonder the country is sliding into oblivion!
