GEORGE TOWN: DAP Bukit Bendera member of parliament Zairil Khir Johari should lodge a police report in order to stop 'personal attacks' against him.
The suggestion by Penang Gerakan came in the wake of a set of pictures, supposedly of Zairil and fellow DAP member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud, in an intimate setting.
Zairil, who is married, yesterday said the pictures were fake.
Penang Gerakan Publicity Bureau Chief Ooi Zhi Yi said the person who was victimised, in this case Zairil, should report it to the authorities.
"We cannot assist him with forensic expertise in order to identify whether who is the actual person in the photo, but police do have the right people to uncover the truth.
"This is not the first time it had happened, so Zairil must do something," he told a press conference at the state Gerakan headquarters in Jalan Macalister here today.
Four photographs of a couple alleged to be Zairil and Dyana Sofya went viral on the social media on Tuesday.
Dyana did not deny or confirm whether she was the one in the picture but Zairil denied it was him.
"We do not understand why they have not made any reports even after three incidents within the space of just a few months. We would be willing to assist them to report it if they want.
"And the actual couple in the photographs should also come forward to clear the air and save our MP," said Ooi.
Ooi later added that Gerakan is against any personal attack hence the authorities should take necessary action against the culprit.
