‘HE EVEN TRIED TO RUN ME DOWN’: EX SABAH MINISTER POINTS GUN AT UBER DRIVER AFTER CAR ACCIDENT

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.

“He told me to contact him at his office in Tanjung Aru to resolve the matter. He put away his gun and drove off.”

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.
