KUALA LUMPUR – Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has expressed his condolences to Tanjong MCA Youth chief Lim Swee Bok over the death of his four family members in a fire at their house in Pangkalan Weld, Penang, today.
“No words can truly describe the tragic loss of Lim Swee Bok’s family. Heartfelt condolences and my thoughts are with him in this difficult time,” the Prime Minister tweeted.
The victims of the 6 am incident have been identified as Lim’s wife, Chen Yen, 35, their son, Yin Chun, nine, and daughter, Jia Yiin, eight, and Lim’s mother Lau Sai Poh, 62.
