In Malaysia, politics is without mercy

Is the axe finally coming down in the Malaysian cyberspace after the four-day arrest of Nathaniel Tan with the high-level Umno police report against Raja Petra Raja Kamaruddin, the webmaster of the popular political website, Malaysia Today?

In his article “A game of cat and mouse” on his website yesterday, Raja Petra had floated the theory put to him by “people in the intelligence community” that Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman and Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan had met Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who is currently in Australia to “discuss Malaysia Today, plus get Pak Lah’s blessing and permission to close Malaysia Today down and arrest me” in view of the “damage Malaysia Today has inflicted on the image of Sabah, the Royal Malaysian Police, and Pak Lah personally”....more from Uncle Kit.

According to Malaysiakini, Umno has filed a police report against political website Malaysia Today for allegedly publishing disparaging remarks against the King and Islam. According to the Umno information chief, the postings and articles in the political website contained disparaging remarks against the King and Islam.(Read also the News from Star here)

Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang says that the report against Raja Petra and the arrest of Nathaniel Tan indicated that the axe was finally coming down in Malaysian cyberspace.


WE WERE DECLARED AN INDEPENDANT DEMOCRATIC SECULAR STATE IN 1957.

5O YEARS ON WE ENCOUNTER MORE CRIMES, MORE MURDERS, MORE RAPES, RAMPANT CORRUPTION, A TAINTED JUDICIARY AND POLICE FORCE, DRACONIAN LAWS LIKE THE ISA AND OSA THAT PROTECT THE CHICANERY OF THE ELITE, AND WE ARE BEGINNING TO SEE THIS FREE INDEPENDENT COUNTRY TURNING INTO A POLICE STATE.

SO WHAT'S THERE TO CELEBRATE?
EXCEPT TO DECLARE IN SOLIDARITY "HIDUP BUGIS BLOGGER"
