AS the purge of PKR members continue following the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan government, PKR Sarawak has sacked its Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How.

State chairman Larry Sng said See, who is also the Stampin branch chief, was issued a notice of termination of membership, dated April 1, by the party’s central leadership.

See has been given 14 days to file an appeal, Borneo Post reported.

Sng said he was unaware if any other branch leaders had received the termination letter.

However, it is expected more termination letters will follow suit.

“Basically, there was a complaint lodged to the discipline bureau and they weighed the issue. It is their prerogative to decide whether or not to issue the letter, either for suspension or termination of membership.

This process is consistent with how other parties manage disciplinary issues. When the complaint was lodged, there was evidence to support it. It is not up to my leadership or the State Leadership Council to decide on issues of sacking or suspension,” said the Julau MP.

Apart from See, other branch leaders have also been referred to the party’s disciplinary committee including Vernon Kedit (Betong), who confirmed he was sacked on Monday. Other include Boniface Willie Tumek (Mas Gading), Baharuddin Mokhsen (Petra Jaya), Siah Sy Jen (Bandar Kuching), Jemree Sabli (Kota Samarahan), Cyril Langin (Serian), Yen Jebeni (Sri Aman), Nicholas Bawin Anggat (Lubok Antu), Hung Soon Kieng (Lanang), Abdul Raafidin Majidi (Sibu) and Kelvin @ Kilo Lutan (Bintulu).

Sng also said PKR’s dismissal of members was not only in Sarawak but also in other states where disciplinary actions have been taken against those seen to be pursuing other political paths.
