Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi, who was embroiled in the alleged 'Christian state conspiracy', has vowed to raised the controversy in Parliament, which resumes proceedings in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.

In addition to Ooi, the pastors who hosted a fellowship dinner in Penang on May 6, Utusan Malaysia editors and journalist, have also been implicated in the matter.

Utusan, which first front-paged the report in its May 7 edition has yet to receive more than a slap on the wrist from the Home Ministry over its much refuted report.

Also implicated in the controversy are pro-Umno blogger Zakhir Mohamed - better known as 'Big Dog' - and a Malay member of DAP, Mohamed Razali Abdul Rahman.

Big Dog and another blogger who goes by the pseudonym "Marahku" had first blogged about the event based without substantiating their claims.

Ooi said that the home ministry should have completed its report by now and should be able to inform the public on their next course of action.

"If no action is taken on those said to be involved and questioned by the police...what about Utusan?" he asked.

NONE"Whichever way the government responds, they would have to answer this question," he told Malaysiakini.

Ooi said he has submitted questions to the August house, and is expecting either a verbal or written answer to his questions.

On whether he has been called up again by the police after being questioned twice, Ooi said 'No'.

However, it is learnt that several pastors have been questioned up to four times and as recently as two weeks ago.

It is also learnt that the police were interested in asking whether the group who prayed during the dinner session had taken an oath to install a Christian state and prime minister with their hands raised in the air.

When asked to comment, Ooi said yes, and conceded that the information was probably in Mohamed Razali's police report on May 17.

Last week, Penang police chief Ayub Yaakob said that a report on the so-called 'Christian conspiracy' had been submitted to federal police headquartes at Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur.

He added that he was awaiting further “instructions” on how to proceed further with the case.

On another occassion, Penang CID deputy chief Mohd Nasir Salleh had also told the media the findings had been submitted, adding that 65 witnesses were called up to get their statements recorded.

He added that the state DAP central executive committee was in the process of issuing Mohamed Razali (above, in newspaper clipping) a show-cause letter asking him to clarify his side of the story.

"It's a normal disciplinary process which (Mohamed) Razali has to go through" Jeff explained.

He was present when Ooi first lodged a police report against Utusan for claiming he was involved in the said consiparcy.
Razali has not responded to calls and messages to his phone despite despite several attempts by Malaysiakini to contacting him.

According to a DAP source, Mohamed Razali has since been found attending events organised by pro-Umno NGOs.

The member, who claims to know Mohamed Razali, said he has in possession photos to back up his statement.

"I have always known what kind of person Mohamed Razali is and have informed the party but they wanted to give him a chance," added the source.
