“How could you allow criminals to walk on the street and be amongst the community?”.
That was a reaction from a Non Malay patriot, upon hearing the release of PKR Vice President Tian Chua, lawyer-turned-anarchist Haris “Sam” Ibrahim and former MARA Chairman Dato’ Tamrin Ghafar from Police custody upon the request for remand detention.
“They do act of sedition. They incite and instigate gullible Malaysians to start a ‘civil revolution’ and topple (via ‘Malaysian Spring’) the democratically elected Federal Government. Aren’t these people criminals against the people of Malaysia?”.
The renown corporate player is right. These people should be deemed as ‘criminals’. History has shown that when the rakyat is incited and instigated, something ugly would happened. And a more horrible reaction would follow suit shortly.
The remand detention was deemed necessary for the Police to complete their investigations and pass all the information to the Attorney General’s Chambers for further action. Now that these trio have been released, the investigations suddenly gone a few notches up on the difficulty band for the Royal Malaysian Police officers. Not to mention the amount of resources they have already allocated to monitor all these efforts towards the ‘civil revolution’.
If these people are charged soon and the courts can decide on their fate for act of sedition, then act to lessen these on going and spiraling attempts to incite and instigate Malaysians to go on the streets and do a series of demonstration as part of the ‘civil revolution’, dubbed ‘Malaysian Spring’. Theory has it that the Opposition with the help of these anarchists and subersive elements are trying to snowball the demonstration to a point of critical mass.
After all, when the instigators are out of action then the gullible idealistic young and delusional Malaysians would not be drummed up to be on the streets much longer. The ‘Malaysian Spring’ would not happened and the whole of Malaysia could be focused and all energy be sprung into a developed nation status in seven years time.
As the 13GE has been concluded and the results of the polls have been gazetted by the Election Commission for any of the parties or candidates to be challenged, where a tribunal would be convened by the Malaysian High Court system, then the process of moving this nation forward should take place instead of worthless politicking. All these politicking is nothing but to satisfy Anwar Ibrahim & Co. with his sordid lies and manipulation to rise to power, instead of driving the nation for the better.
Anwar Ibrahim and his band of Opposition bandits have no real plan for Malaysia. They can’t even get their act together. The more recent evidence is the delay of the appointment of Menteri Besar of Selangor. Then the formula of the allocation and eventually the appointment of Exco posts between the three parties, which still has not been resolved till present time even though 13GE concluded three weeks ago. The bickering and in-fighting within the three parties and themselves is a demonstration of how they can get their act in order.
Like in the release of the trio and the acquittal of Anwar Ibrahim from the second sodomy charge fourteen months ago, it is endless debate on morality versus the interpretation and arguments within the ambit of the law. It is also about upholding the rights of these individuals at the cost of the majority who are absolutely tired on the extra lengthy negative politics and politicking and the interest of the nation at large.
The fact that these Opposition leaders in many times and circumstance refused to adhere to the provisions stipulated under the Peaceful Assembly Act introduced in 2012 to allow for public and demonstration is a demonstration that they are lawless and respect no law, even though they were an integral part to enact and pass this new law.

KUALA LUMPUR (May 22, 2013): Rally organisers have been reminded not to use “peaceful assembly” as an excuse not to give police advance notification as required by the law.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pix) said today the staging of rallies only distracted police from focussing on combating crime.
Expressing disappointment at the failure of some rally organisers to notify the police 10 days in advance in accordance with the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012, Khalid said: “Organisers should inform us if they wish to hold a rally so that we can allocate our resources to facilitate the event.
“Not notifying the police does not mean the police should not facilitate the event. What if there is an opposing group that causes conflict during the rally?”
On allegations that police are bent on taking action against such rallies, Khalid said the police have never neglected their duties.
“We have always placed our focus in preventing crime and never strayed from it,” he told a press conference in Bukit Aman.
He also reminded the public that there is a limit to expressing their rights.
“We understand there is a need to respect the right of the public to express themselves. We will not neglect their rights when we carry out our duties. However, there is a limit to that,” said Khalid.
He said everyone should respect the Peaceful Assembly Act when organising such events.
When asked if the police would use the #KL112 rally as an example of how the police would handle future rallies, Khalid said that it would depend on the situation.
“Different scenarios call for different approaches. The police will take action accordingly. There are parts of our standard operating procedure that we cannot divulge to the public, but know that we will follow the law to the letter,” he said.
In the #KL112 rally held at Merdeka Stadium earlier this year, the police were praised by both the public and the Opposition for facilitating the event without violence or incident.
It was a stark contrast to the Bersih 3.0 rally where the police were accused of using excessive violence towards the public and members of the press.
The Oppositions’ lawlessness and disrespect or worse still, the manipulation of provisions within the Federal Constitution and the process of upholding law whenever it serves their purpose is a clear demonstration that if they are allowed room or an advantage in any circumstance, the end game would just be turning the nation into a state of lawlessness and pandemonium.
The Judiciary has been criticized for its failure to uphold the law in the spirit of the existence of laws for public interest first against sedition criminals, instead of the sacred practice of upholding the law for the sake of the principle and convention.
At the end of the day, if the law doesn’t exist for the public interest, then should it be respected and honoured just for the few errand ones out to do cunning acts of malice against the majority?
