SIBU: The Youth Wing of Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Bawang Assan and Pelawan branches have condemned the United People’s Party (UPP) Pelawan branch for what they deemed as abusing the logo of the Barisan Nasional (BN).

SUPP Bawang Assan youth chief, Marcus Yek, told a press conference Monday afternoon it was a clear case of abuse when UPP Pelawan put up two roadside signboards bearing the BN logo at Lane 27, Oya Road.

“We have lodged a police report. UPP has no right to use the BN logo. It is misleading.

“People may think UPP is already a BN component party,” he said.

Yek said the offender ought to face punitive action.

When contacted yesterday evening, Yek confirmed more than a dozen party members staged a protest at 10am on Monday at where the BN logo was put on UPP signboards.

“After the protest, we took down the two signboards with the BN logo, took them away and handed them to the police when we lodged a report at 2pm.”
