Why bloggers were ‘stood up’ infront of the Aussie High Commission

Yesterday, right wing SOPO bloggers walked with a Malay NGO Perkasa to the Australian High Commission in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng. They intended to submit their memorandum of protest to HE Miss Penny Williams on the recent 50 Aussie MPs signed demand that the Malaysian Government interfered in the trial of Opposition Leader Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim in the Kuala Lumpur Criminal High Court for sodomy charge under Penal Code section 377B, which carry a maximum  jail sentence of 20 years.

This was the prepared SOPO bloggers memorandum:


Date:  17 February 2010


Her Excellency High Commissioner

Australian High Commission to Malaysia

6 Jalan Yap Kwan Seng

50450 Kuala Lumpur


Attention: HE Miss Penny Williams


Socio-political bloggers

Malaysian National Alliance of Bloggers (All-Blogs)




We, Malaysian socio-political bloggers deplore the suggestion of Australian Members of Parliament that the Malaysian Federal Government interfere in the judicial process of the trial of Opposition Leader and Right Honourable Member of Parliament for Permatang Pauh Anwar bin Ibrahim, on the charge in Kuala Lumpur Criminal High Court for sodomy under Penal Code Section 377B.

This reflects blatant disregard and disrespect of the Malaysian:

  1. Judiciary and judicial process
  2. System of constitutional monarchy, where the separation between the executive and judiciary is defined under the Malaysian Federal Constitution
  3. The democratic process and democracy
  4. Sovereignty and membership of the Commonwealth and United Nations

 With this, we vehemently protest the suggestion of the Right Honourable Australian Members of Parliament and demand a withdrawal and public apology of the ill intent, which unchecked could invoke a diplomatic issue between the two friendly countries.

Yours truly,

 Undersigned, Kuala Lumpur, 17 February 2010


This was a strong demand for Australia, as a friend to Malaysia and fellow member of the Commonwealth.

However, when Pemuda UMNO ‘hijacked’ the event from Perkasa and walked into the Australian High Commission on their own, not only they did not invited All-Blogs protem President Ahirudin “Rocky’s Bru” Attan (who is also the National Press Club President) to present our protest to HE Miss Williams, neither did they bring this memorandum in as well.

It is clear blatant that Pemuda UMNO wanted to hog the issue for their own politics, which is already dwindling within UMNO circle, let alone mainstream Malaysian politics instead of taking the interest of the majority of Malaysians, apolitical and oblivion to the politics. What planned out to be a strong voice of Malaysians against these Biadap Aussies, turned out to be a notch on Khairy Jamaluddin’s sordid attempt to remain relevant in mainstream politics, including UMNO.

Many of the SOPO blog readers are apolitical and not members in any political organisation.That include Parpukari, A Voice and Bujai. And yet, as patriots, they brave themselves out in the open and hazzard to be arrested by the Police for illegal assembly to champion the noble cause of defending ‘Maruah Agama, Bangsa dan Tanahair’, from an Aussie attempt which strategically should be viewed as nothing but “Orang Putih mahu ‘menjajah’ semula Asia“.

History recorded that this is not the first time Aussies wanted Malaysian Government interfere the Malaysian judicial process and Judiciary. In the case of Kevin Barlow and Geoffrey Chambers who were charged for the traficking of heroine in 1985, they were very strong in their demands. Exhaustively when Barlow and Chambers were hanged in Pudu Prison in 1986, Aussies called Malaysians as “Barbarics”.

It is apparent the KJ’s brand of Pemuda UMNO’s interest into the Aussie infringements into our sovereignity is insincere. Pemuda UMNO under Khairy Jamaluddin was surprisingly very ‘silent’ when recently Miss Williams announced that the Australians were setting up border controls here from Malaysia. Perhaps Pemuda UMNO needs to be reminded that it is Khairy Jamaluddin and his family who have super luxury holiday homes in Perth. Hence, yesterday was most probably  just theatrics that he is known for.
