Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Region Inga Peulich MLC condemned Hong Lim’s behaviour saying that it was deplorable that a Member of Parliament would conduct himself in such a disgraceful manner.
“The Member for Clarinda, Hong Lim has demonstrated little respect for women, little respect for the Victorian Parliament, and does not deserve his standing in Government,” Ms Peulich said.
Later that day, Mr Lim continued his abuse of the female MP in an elevator, screaming at her and leaving her visibly shaken.
“The multi-million dollar election rort, vandalising the urban landscape with ugly skyrail no one voted for, and now Hong Lim’s abuse and obscenities is a deplorable legacy he will leave when he retires from Parliament this year,” Ms Peulich said.
