KUCHING: The Association of Churches Sarawak has expressed regret that DAP, PAS and PKR leaders held a press conference on the association's meeting with them Thursday concerning the Bahasa Malaysia bibles issue.
ACS secretary-general Ambrose Linang said the breakfast meeting was held behind closed doors after the leaders agreed to the association's request not to hold a press conference regarding it.
“Our association received an invitation from Selangor state executive councillor Teresa Kok to have a breakfast meeting with the leaders of these opposition parties and agreed on condition that political issues would not be discussed as we are non-partisan.
“Shortly after the meeting we left. However, we were disappointed to learn that these leaders held a press conference later,” he said when contacted by Bernama.
Ambrose said the association would study the statements made at the press conference, and if there were political elements, it would issue an official statement. (Bernama)
