"Instead of making comments to blame others, he (Yee) should apologise to all
the parabolic satellite disc owners," he said in a statement here Monday.
Yee had commented on the recent statewide crackdown by the Customs Department
that saw 193 parabolic satellite disc confiscated.
Yee was reported as saying that it was ridiculous to bar people from using the
satellite disc in this ICT era.
"It is Yee who is ridiculous. He has been the Minister in charge of the ICT in
Sabah and only now he is seeing all this?" asked Chong.
According to him, the Customs Department is under Federal Finance Ministry and
the Minister is also the Prime Minister.
"So, Yee must hold the PM responsible for the actions against the parabolic
satellite disc. Or will he be doing like the SAS issue, covering up for his Umno
bosses," said Chong.
In fact, the matter showed that the Barisan Nasional (BN) in Sabah is dependent
on Kuala Lumpur without its own autonomy and would not be able to get anything
done without the Federal endorsement, he said.
