Allegations against Guan Eng’s son ‘completely untrue,’ says school principal

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 19 – The principal of SMK Heng Ee in George Town today moved to put an end to accusations that Lim Guan Eng’s son had sexually harassed a female student of the school, calling it “completely untrue.”

Goon Boon Poh told The Malaysian Insider that he was “shocked” when he read news reports of the allegation, and that he wanted to put an end to the matter as it could affect the image of the high school.

Pro-Umno bloggers including Bukit Gelugor Umno division chief Dr Novandri Hasan Basri had claimed that the Penang chief minister’s son had assaulted a 16-year-old schoolmate and tried to escape punishment by using his father’s name.

“The allegations are completely untrue. It is very simple, there’s absolutely no truth to it,” Goh told The Malaysian Insider today.

“The blogs said the incident occurred in May this year. CM’s son has not been a student of my school since the beginning of this year,” he added.

Goh said that the pictures posted on the blogs were not of Lim’s son, and that pictures of the alleged victim was not even a student of Heng Ee.

The principal said that officers from the state education department had conducted an investigation into the allegations on Monday, and were satisfied with his explanation on the matter.

“If I had kept quiet, the silence would have put me, the school in an embarrassing situation. Very simple if it had happened I would have known about it, wouldn’t I?

“No students had complained about any such case and the girl is supposed to be a classmate, so I want to just clarify the matter,” said Goh.

The girl whose photograph was used by Umno bloggers to level accusations of sexual harassment against Lim’s son has been identified as 21-year-old chess Grandmaster Anya Sun Corke.

Corke, who represents England in chess, has no ties with Penang and has never been a classmate of Lim’s son as alleged by Umno blogs, the DAP said in a press conference in Parliament today.

The girl is understood to be currently an undergraduate of Wellesley College in the United States.

Without revealing details of the allegation, the Penang CM (picture) said yesterday he was furious with the “barbaric lies” made about his teenage son by “pro-Umno ferocious beasts,” singling out Khairy Jamaluddin and other ruling party leaders for perpetuating the allegations through snide comments on blogs and social media sites.

The Rembau MP had written on micro-blogging site Twitter on Monday, “Mungkin dia roboh Kampung Buah Pala sebab nak ganti dengan Kampung Buah Dada” in response to another tweet by PapaGomo. [English translation: Maybe he destroyed Kampung Buah Pala because he wants to replace it with Kampung Buah Dada].

The DAP called on Khairy today to “retract his snide remarks and apologise to Lim’s son, who is an innocent victim.”

    YB LGE, take the UMNO goons and liars to court. This testimony from the school principal confirms the shameful and dishonourable attempt by these UMNO goons like Khairy to discredit an innocent child. Khairy Jamaluddin, you think you’re such a smart and holy person? Let me ask you if Islam teaches its followers to throw wild and cruel accusations against others, especially an innocent child? Is this the Islam Hadhari your father-in-law taught you? Shame on you and your entire family!

    Mr Goon, A thousand thanks for coming forth to tell the truth. GOD bless you.
    As for Khairy, do you feel remorseful for the lies you told? Are you going to apologise to Lim Guan Eng and son?
    Shame on your for taking on a young child.
    He had left the school in the beginning of the year and the lies that you told happened in May!! It needs an intelligent man to tell good lies and judging by the way you told it, it simply showed that you are obviously lacking in grey matter upstairs and definitely not of Oxford class! As for Papagomo, the infamous, he is certainly of the very low IQ!!

    “Remorse”, “Shame”, “Fitnah” are not in UMNO’s dictionary. “Money”, “Money”, “Money” are the only words they understand.

    Someone should relate this matter to alert Anya Sun Corke or her family members.

    Khairy, why you went to oxford? The courses there not relevant to UMNO and we have good local universities here. For instance you can thesis in the following UMNO-sponsored topics:

    – The manipulation of bedroom videos to resemble opposition politicians
    – The application and optimization of C4 explosives to destroy human evidence
    – The physiology of delayed human defecation in a male adult
    – An automated immigration data conversion and migration of foreign workers in Malaysia into NRD as blue ic holders.
    – Blue ocean strategy of increasing national debt to enrich UMNO cronies
    – The mineral and optical properties of a RM24mil diamond ring and its effect on obese women
    – The diffusion rate of tear gas in confined spaces projected at a low angle
    – and the list goes on……..

    Khairy really put his alma mater to shame and disrepute. One would expect a grad from oxford to have some honour and intellect. This guy has none of these! The only reasons he got into oxford was because his father was a diplomat and probably gave a big donation to the school to get a pass for him. !

    These UMNO b goons simply love using sex scandals to bring down Opposition leaders.
    Khairy is getting closer to be Najib’s jail mate.

    All this is the signs of Sodom and Gomorrah. Truth is KJ and the likes of these people should just leave and go away. If they truly have brains, then they see the world has changed and there is no place for the likes of them anymore. What they do is hopeless and pointless and merely distracts those doing something real and good. They are a waste of energy and resources.

    Umno is only good for trickery. I can think of three recent examples. (1) A bersih 2.0 rally participant purportedly holding a keris was being flashed by umno’s paper. In this doctored picture the poor fella very clearly has two left hands. The left hand where his right was suppose to be was the guilty hand with the keris. (2) A blurry b/w clip showing what I believe to be taib and a thai prostitute was being sold to the public again by umno senior members as the story of anwar and a prc prostitute. (3) And now the hairy monkey and a certain stupid (huh? wot?) doctor(?) decided to doctor the picture of an international chess player, female of course, and then labeled guan eng’s teenage son as the player of her chest (actually boobs, those monkeys were specific). Hey you failed anti-bersih 2.0 idiot pls shut the phaark up!

    Just could not tahan this latest round of cowboy show by the hairy monkey. So decided to add another comment. Here you go.

    Look. Even if the allegation is completely baseless and the picture clearly doctored, you people have no right to deny and critise. For that is not something with “asian values” and in any case doing so would be “anti-agung, anti-islam jenis umno, anti-melayu, unpatriotic, ungrateful, terrorist and communist etc etc.” Umno has a constitutional right to do anything. Look up the constitution pls if you are not sure. Turn to the last page. Last section of the last page. Last word of the last section of the last page. Huh? Page number is the last word? Oh yes. Yes. That page number. Look at the number. And after the number do you see a dot? A full stop? That full stop gives umno all the rights to do whatever with complete impunity!
