The dilemma of Yellow color & the word "Clean"

“We don’t pick our victims, and we don’t pick the circumstances under which these cases come to us.”

“As prosecutors, our duty is to do what is right.”

--- Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the Manhattan district attorney, which is handling the sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn


Malaysians have more worries than before - they can't wear anything yellow in public - shirts, shoes, pants, tie and even underwear.

If you do, you can be arrested and detained under sections 3(1) and 4(1) of the Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance 1969.

Section 3(1) provides for the arrest and detention of any person without warrant or trial under grounds contained in 4(1) that the person is acting in a manner prejudicial to public order, to suppress violence, or prevent other crimes for any period not exceeding two years.

The nationwide Royal Malaysian police force had associated wearing the yellow T-shirts or shoes with sedition, provocation and prejudice, or acting in a manner prejudicial to public order. Inspector General of Police Ismail Omar said anything which could be construed by the police as seditious or has elements of threats would face the repercussions. (Reference: Malaysiakini Report)

Even those who wear t-shirts for a gotong-royong event in Taman Pelangi, Johor, were arrested. (Reference: Reported by Malaysiakini)

"Negara Bersih, Rakyat bertuah" -'A clean nation, a fortunate people'. Oh, sorry, it's yellow!!! The gotong royong group should have use black or red, not yellow.

Last week the police had called national laureate A Samad Said to give a statement over his poem recital during a Bersih 2.0 event. He is being investigated under Section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act 1948 and Section 27(5) of the Police Act 1967 which is related to unlawful assembly.

If you are arrested for yellow shirts or shoes, you may even be charged for waging war on the Yang diPertuan Agong.

30 Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members, including Sungai Siput MP Dr Michael Jeyakumar were investigated for “waging war against the Yang DiPertuan Agong.” Deputy Penang police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar said remand orders would be applied to detain the 30 activists under Section 122 of the Penal Code.

The group of 30 people were detained, including 14 women and aged between 16 and 64, while traveling in a bus from Sungai Petani towards Penang to attend a function. Out of the 30 the police detained six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members and they will be charged under the Emergency Ordinance for waging war against the King.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Khalid Abu Bakar said the six, including Sungai Siput MP Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, have been found to be involved with foreign and subversive elements. (The Star Reported & also reported at The Malaysian Insider)

Under Section 122 of the Penal Code, “Whoever collects or attempts to collect men, arms or ammunition, or otherwise prepares to wage war with the intention of either waging or being prepared to wage war against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or any of the Rulers or the Yang di-Pertua Negeri or abets the waging or the preparation of such war, shall be punished with imprisonment for life or imprisonment for a term not exceeding twenty years, and shall also be liable to fine.”

Section 122 was used to prosecute militant terrorist group Al Ma’unah who were involved in an audacious arms heist at an army camp in 2000 and a tense stand-off in the jungles of Perak in 2000. Now it will be used more freely.

Anything can be seditious now. It's such sensitive to the Barisan Nasional government ... anything, albeit with exceptions; such as Ibrahim Ali's rhetorical call for crusade against Christians, and a group of silat experts who warn those July 9 participants that they should expect violence. Malay daily Utusan Malaysia carried a report saying that more than 50,000 Silat exponents are prepared to “wage war” with Bersih activists.

It was also reported that Mahaguru (grandmaster) of the Pertubuhan Seni Silat Lincah Malaysia (PSSLM) Omardin Mauju threatened to “wage war” against Bersih activists and he will be meeting with 180 silat lincah masters from across the country (Reported at: and Reported at Malaysia-Today)

BTW, Prime Minister Najib Razak said: "Practitioners and members of the silat martial arts can be regarded as the third line of defence prepared to safeguard the nation's sovereignty from enemies" (Reference: Silat 'warriors' third line of nation's defence: Najib) I'm sure the reference of "Enemy" is not Singapore, or America or China. Your guess is as good as mine.

It can be observed that government of Najib is getting paranoid and distressed, with the police suffering from nostalgia and defective vision and insane delusion - they captivated illusory enemies. Even those lawyers who had represented plaintiff or defendants on legal issues related to religion 0r the constitutional rights of individuals can be classified as an enemy of Islam or anti-Islam. (Reference: Reported at The Malaysian Insider)

Datuk S. Ambiga may lose her Malaysian Citizenship because she is Bersih 2.0 Chairperson. Malacca Chief Minister Ali Rustam has called on the federal government to strip S Ambiga of her citizenship for being the chairperson of Bersih 2.0 (Reference: Reported at Malaysiakini and at youtube)

I think Ambiga will not lose her citizenship; she will only be required to stay at the new Kamunting detention centre which was only renovated lately. I told Ambiga that the newly renovated place is quite nice and she would likely be the first guest of honor soon; she agreed.

"Some people want us (government) to use whatever power at our disposal," PM Najib said (Reference; 'Emergency ordinance used as preventive measure')

Some people, boss? Siapa? Ali Rustam? Ibrahim Ali? Mahathir? We Malaysians should be worried over these "some people".

Rumour has it that there were 500 poolice surrounded a building in selangor this afternoon where large amount of YELLOW material was reported. The unguarded YELLOW material was seized. To prevent it falling into the wrong hands, the poolice decided to eat the YELLOW material. DNA lab in putrajaya later confirmed that the YELLOW material was human excrement.
