DAP elected representatives appear to have caught the attention of the police, with three called to give statements within the space of a week on issues to do with Islam and bumiputera rights.
According to Selangor party chairperson and Seri Kembangan assemblyperson Ean Yong Hian Wah, police had called his office two days ago to ask him to provide a statement.
"They told me it is for an 'internal investigation' to do with the Teo Nie Ching surau issue," he said when contacted.
He is due for questioning at the Kajang police station on Oct 2.
The recent developments have somewhat revived the issue, which caused an uproar within certain quarters.
"I believe some parties are trying to continue to raise the pressure," said Yong.
Likewise, the bumiputera property discount issue which is also believed to have died down, appears to be far from over, with police calling DAP-Petaling Jaya Utara parliamentarian Tony Pua about it earlier today.
"I think they may have been trying to contact me earlier but I was overseas.
"I am due at the Shah Alam district police headquarters on Wednesday," he said when contacted.
Pua (left) had last month suggested that the state government do away with the seven percent bumiputera discounts for residential property worth RM500,000 and commercial property costing more than RM2 million at a state budget dialogue session last month.
As a result, 22 police reports were lodged against him by Umno Youth divisions in Selangor, urging that he be investigated under the Sedition Act.
The DAP publicity secretary also received a live M16 bullet following his statement at the dialogue, with a note threatening his family's safety.
