Former Teratai Assemblywoman Jenice Lee Ying Ha today filed a suit against DAP on her expulsion from the party.
Lee, 33, who filed the suit through the legal firm of Messrs. Harjit Sandhu at the Civil High Court registry here, named DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng as the defendant.
In the statement of claim, Lee (picture) seeks a declaration for her membership in DAP since 2001 to be reinstated immediately, cost and other relief deem fit by the court.
She claimed that her expulsion from the party, which she knew through the media last April 20, was null and void because an investigation by the Registrar of Society (ROS) revealed that the election of the party’s central executive council (CEC) members, held in December last year, was not in accordance with the DAP constitution.
In the recent 13th general election, Lee, the former Selangor DAP publicity secretary, contested as an Independent candidate for the Teratai seat, but lost.
