Chua’s got mail – a newspaper clipping and hell notes
KUALA LUMPUR: In what seems to be a death threat against him, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek received two Chinese hell bank notes in the mail from an anonymous sender.
Dr Chua said there was also a newspaper clipping of a Sin Chew Daily article on United Chinese School Committees Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) president Yap Sin Tian lambasting him over an issue regarding a Segamat independent Chinese school.
“I don’t know who did it and I don’t know what his or her motive is,” he told reporters after chairing the party’s presidential council meeting yesterday.
“The postage mark on the mail showed that it was sent from Sabah.”
Dr Chua said these were sent to his office in Wisma MCA here on Monday.
The two hell bank notes were supposed to be worth eight billion dollars each.
However, Dr Chua is unperturbed and said he would not be lodging a police report over the mail.
“I’m not going to be threatened by this,” he said.
After the press conference, he jokingly told reporters: “If anybody wants to buy lottery numbers, the numbers on the notes are 7871.”
Hell bank notes are burnt by the Chinese community as offerings to the dead.
