DAP is a political party that failed to take disciplinary action against its members who defame the royalty and rulers council in the country, claimed a local NGO Pertubuhan Minda dan Sosial Prihatin (PMSP)

Its president Ramesh Rao was referring to Penang Deputy Chief Minister II private secretary M Satees who insulted Johor Sultan through Facebook, November last year.

According to Ramesh, surprisingly when the cops were probing the case, Satees was temporarily removed from his position, then recently reinstated shows the opposition party does not bother or have any sort of respect for the rulers’ institution in this country.

He claimed Satees was re-appointed back as Seberang Perai councillor.

In his Facebook posting, Satees has “told off”  Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar that His Royal Highness had no power to stop anyone from taking part in any peaceful assembly in Johor.

Prior to the posting, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar advised Johoreans not to participate in the Bersih 5 rally.

“Looks like DAP kept quiet over Satees remarks against the Johor Sultan, not even sack him from the party or take any disciplinary action.

“It clearly shows by re-appointing him, the party accepts the act done by the DAP councillor to issue disparaging remarks.

“If DAP is a party that respects and uphold the Federal Constitution surely they would have sacked or take disciplinary action against Satees.” said Ramesh via a statement.

In fact, Satees was slammed by several people and urged DAP to take disciplinary action against him.

On Nov 8 last year, Bukit Aman cops recorded a statement from Satees and a check by Malaysia Outlook found out that police investigation papers were submitted to the Attorney-General Chambers (AGC) on Jan 4 this year and awaiting for DPP instruction.

Satees is investigated under Section 4(1) of Sedition Act and Section 233 of Communication and Multimedia Act 1998.
