PETALING JAYA: The DAP state leadership has directed Pasir Pedamar state assemblyman Terence Naidu to submit a written report of the incident, following his arrest at a nightclub.
Perak DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming confirmed that Terence was arrested and detained by the police on Thursday (Jan 13) night at a pub in Bandar Perai Jaya, Penang, after contacting Terence this evening.
“He has been asked to submit a written report on the incident so that the state leadership and the DAP National leadership can be informed of the factual situation accordingly.
“I would like to assure the public that DAP takes seriously the conduct, character and integrity of its elected representatives and that they should be exemplary in their ways as people who have been entrusted by the people to lead them,” he said in a statement on Friday (Jan 14).
Terence, a two-term assemblyman, was arrested for drug use after a police operation at a nightclub in Prai on Thursday.
He has since been released on police bail after his remand order expired.
State Narcotics Crime Investigations Department chief Asst Comm Mustafa Kamal Gani Abdullah had said 36 people tested positive for drugs.
Of the number, he said 28 of them were men, including the state assemblyman, while the rest were women.
