A FORMER Sabah minister has been accused of pointing a gun at an Uber driver and threatening to shoot the man, following an accident in Kota Kinabalu on Thursday.
He is believed to have been a minister during the Sabah People’s United Front era and the older brother of a senior state minister.
A police report was lodged by the 65-year-old victim, identified as Chin Woon Seng, on Friday.
The former minister is believed to have said to Chin: “Kamu mahu mati kah? Tembak kau sana.” (Do you want to die? I will shoot you.)
The former minister then tried to escape, said Chin.
“He even tried to run me down, but I stood firm and thumped the bonnet. ”
Chin said he tried to exchange details with the former minister, after which the latter allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened him.
Chin said he hoped police would investigate the matter fairly, as threatening a person with a deadly weapon was a serious offence.
Present was state DAP chairman Stephen Wong and his aide, Phoong Jin Zhe.
