GEORGE TOWN: DAP is steering clear of the ongoing photo scandal involving Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari and Socialist Youth executive committee member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud.
State DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow said that Zairil had requested that he be allowed to solve the purported fake photo issue himself, as it was seen as a personal attack involving him.
“He appeared before Secretary General Lim Guan Eng on Tuesday afternoon and he said he will handle the matters by himself.
“This statement was issued to keep the public informed,” he said in a statement today.
Four photographs of a couple, alleged to be Zairil and Dyana went viral on social media on Tuesday, showing them being intimate.
Dyana did not deny or confirm whether she was the one in the picture but Zairil had denied it was him.
This was the third incident involving the duo over the past few months as videos and photos of a couple resembling both of them had circulated on social media.
Penang Gerakan had urged Zairil to lodge a police report on the matter.
