GEORGE TOWN: A cash reward of RM10,000 has been offered to those able to provide information leading to the arrest of those responsible for throwing a Molotov cocktail into Penang’s Chief Minister’s Lim Guan Eng’s house on Saturday.
Jelutong Member of Parliament Jeff Ooi said the reward was offered as the police had failed to detect, detain and bring to justice those responsible for the attack.
The police have been accused by Ooi for having misplaced priorities in failing to apprehend anyone two days after the incident.
“We are offering the reward to find those responsible for police to take action,” he said in a press conference earlier today.
Present were Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik, Batu Kawan MP P. Kasthuri, Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari and Bukit Metertajam MP Steven Sim.
In the 11.45pm incident, closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage showed a motorcyclist riding up to the house in Jalan Pinhorn here before hurling the explosive over the gate.
No one was injured and no damages were recorded in the incident.
