SEBERANG PRAI: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is leaving the matter of rescheduling a questioning session with the police this Friday to his lawyer.
He said his lawyer, Puchong MP Gobind Singh, will be handling the matter.
Lim said he blew his top when his lawyer informed he was to be called for questioning on Jan 27, the eve of Chinese New Year.
“What is this? Might as well arrest me, why come get my statement recorded on the day when we have our reunion.
“This is not sensitive, in terms of Malaysian-ness (and) Malaysian spirit,” he said when asked about the matter today at a press conference.

Guan Eng fumes as cops call for a date on CNY eve
The police want to query Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng again over his Nov 23 statement urging BN component parties to quit BN.
Lim asked Gerakan, MCA, MIC and SUPP to quit over the coalition’s stand on PAS’ proposed Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 (Act 355).
But this time, the police want a session with him on Jan 27, which is the eve of Chinese New Year.
Even Guan Eng’s foe says cops wrong
PETALING JAYA: It was “inconsiderate” of the police to schedule an interrogation of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on the eve of Chinese New Year, said Gerakan Youth deputy chief Andy Yong today.
“Personally, I think it is inconsiderate for the police wanting to question him on the eve of Chinese New Year.
“Moreover, it is not a very serious offence and he was already questioned previously,” he said to FMT when contacted.
Yong was responding to an earlier report, where Lim said the police wanted to question him again on Jan 27, Chinese New Year eve, over a remark he made about the shariah bill issue.
