It's official. Malaysia has become a police state. It appears the police have the right to "kidnap" you from your office, confiscate your computers (without a warrant?) or even leaving a receipt and hide you from your family and lawyers. I just read about the recent "kidnapping" cum arrest of one Nat Tan. To be honest, I have no idea who he is until today. But who he is isn't really important. The fact of the matter is he had just been arrested by our "vaunted" police without even a nod towards his civil rights. He was not allowed access to his lawyers. The police even tried to hide him by shuttling him from police station to police station, and kept denying his whereabouts. They even confiscated his computers (no mention of any warrant) without leaving a receipt. The exact charges for which he was being arrested, as well as the officer in charge, kept changing. Best of all, he was denied food and water! This is Malaysia's finest at their best. Not working to protect the citizens, but oppressing them instead. Is this the kind of country we want? Is this the kind of police we want? It's time to speak up. It's time to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Here's part of the report written by Elizabeth Wong on the issue : I've taken the liberty of posting a large part of her blog because I felt it was too important to just put a short quote. For the rest of her blog post, please click here. More in this report by his employee - http://www.infernalramblings.com/articles/Malaysian_Politics/541/ Opposition leader, Lim Kit Siang, also has a blog post on this issue - http://blog.limkitsiang.com/2007/07...erdeka-anniversary-will-not-start-infamously/ Shame on the police. Shame! Where's your honour, you men and women in blue? Have you no honour? Shame on YOU!
