Jeff's car was obstructing the traffic flow outside parliament. In fact the police only towed Jeff's car to the parking bay inside the Parliament compound and no summon was issued.
Did the police do anything wrong? Or wasn't they carrying out their duty?
Was it unkind to tow the car inside the compound?
We had to call a spade a spade. In all fairness it was just a trivial issue and it need not be a headline news.
Meanwhile, Raja Petra Kamarudin was released by the police without his statement recorded.
Raja Petra refused to give his statement and gave the police two options: either let him walk out of the police department without his statement being taken or to arrest him. The police chose the first option.
The uneasy thing about this issue is the fact that the person who lodged a police report is himself a police officer. What is his locus standi, and would it not cause uneasiness to the pubic in general that any police officer can make any kinds of reports against anybody and that somebody will be charged for a crime which the police officer who in his personal opinion believed it was seditious and therefore would himself make a police report so that the police department would investigate and call on the accused for interrogation and possibly be charged for a crime which the police officer is convinced in his personal opinion to be seditious and the whole police contingent giving its approval.
I hope we have not become a police state; it is scary! Where is the IPCMC? It is clear now that without IPCMC the rakyat is at the mercy of a few who had personal beliefs and convictions over certain misdirected ideology and belief system.
The parliament had reconvene. Could the parliamentarians do something essential and necessary to provide adequate confidence that the public and the citizens are safe under the new government? 20 opposition MPs could do nothing; 82 MPs also can do nothing? Something is truly wrong.
