I am glad that the Attorney General has finally dropped or withdrawn the sedition charge against me this morning at the KL Sessions. At the outset, this charge ought not have been preferred against me. Inter alia, many civil society organisations including Human Rights Watch (HRW) have condemned and expressed grave concern and demanded that the charge against me be dropped many times before but it was deliberately ignored by the AG. I have consistently maintained that I should not have been charged in the first place as clearly there was no justifiable basis. My right to freedom of speech was violated when I was charged on 6.5.2014.

It is also crystal clear that the gig in the video clip is purely a satire and was innocuous and harmed no one or any section of our community in Malaysia and hence NOT SEDITIOUS.

DAP MPs together with MPs of PKR and Amanah today expressed sympathy and solidarity over the killing of civilians in Paris by ISIS few days ago by signing the condolences book at the French Embassy.

The delegation was led by the opposition leader of the Parliament, Datin Seri Wan Azizah.

We were received by the ambassador of French embassy, H. E. Christophe Penot.

I was told that the Opposition leader had invited PAS MPs to join the visit, however, none of them joined us.

The decision of PAS for not voting against the Federal Budget last night, and their absence in the visit to French embassy today made me wonder why some PKR MPs still insist to include PAS in the political coalition.

Saya merasa marah dan kesal melihat perbuatan gila blogger Alvin Tan yang menghina dan mengotorkan Al-Quran. Perbuatan yang mengejikan ini telah menyakiti hati kesemua umat Islam dan juga umat bukan Islam.

Kepada umat Islam, saya mesti tegaskan bahawa perbuatan Alvin Tan tidak mewakili kaum Cina dan kaum bukan Islam, kerana tiada umat bukan Islam yang waras akan melakukan perkara yang keji tersebut.

Perbuatan gila Alvin Tan ini yang merosakkan keharmonian masyarakat majmuk kita. Dia juga telah memalukan Malaysia.

Justeru itu, saya menyeru kesemua pemilik facebook memanjangkan aduan berkenaan perbuatan keji Alvin Tan kepada pentadbiran facebook, kerana kelakuan Alvin Tan bercanggah dengan jiwa dan prinsip Facebook.

Below is my comments in the press conference:—
