SEMENYIH: The MCA Youth has lambasted Malaysian Human Rights Society (Hakam) president Datuk S. Ambiga for asking the entire Cabinet to resign over the US Department of Justice (DOJ)’s forfeiture lawsuits allegedly linking 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Its chief Chong Sin Woon said Ambiga should instead ask Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to resign first as he was charged with alleged corruption.

“Please do not practise double standards. The suit is not even targeting the Prime Minister, and asking the entire Cabinet to resign is really illogical,” he told reporters after attending a programme at the Nirvana Memorial Garden here on Sunday.

He was commenting on Ambiga’s call for the Cabinet to resign over the forfeiture suits. 

Chong urged Ambiga not to get involved in partisan politics and use her influence for the betterment of the country.

“You are well respected but please use your position to make this country a better place. Please do not lose focus,” he said.
