In parliament

Parliament in brief:
Chin Peng film raises questions


The New Straits Times. 28 March

Why a documentary on Chin Peng? This poser was raised by Datuk Dr Wan Hashim Wan Teh (BN-Gerik) who lamented on the absence of war memorials or documentaries on Malaysians who had served the country during times of war and strife. A 90-minute semi-musical documentary Lelaki Komunis Terakhir (The Last Communist) will be screened in theatres in May after it received the nod from the Film Censorship Board. It is about the life of Chin Peng, the exiled leader of the Communist Party of Malaya, and includes interviews with former guerrillas in Thailand. Wan Hashim said it was sad Malaysian heroes were not given such recognition. "We have had many heroes from 1511 when the Portugese invaded Malacca. Why The Last Communist when we have our own heroes?"

Dr Wan,

UMNO should have sponsored local/international film makers to produce films of Malaysian heroes. Let 'The Last Communist' be screened without any problem, please ...
