"Keeping the Rage" on DS ANWAR IBRAHIM: PART 3

In my current series I rely a lot of my own past BLOGPOSTS as well as UPDATES from fellow BUMmers like SteadyAku47, for a better Malaysia, et al:) Thanks buddies, writing can be a LONELY journey but for some conversatioNAlist companions like these scribes I consider my TRAVELLIN' MEN!


  •  From my BLOG here/hear for the period 03/01/15--20:25 I REPRISE some relevant writes, ENJOY if thou can or c'nt! -- YL, Desi: 
  • Desi Is Sad, Mad -- I hope more Malaysians are Enraged!
  • ENRAGED by the goings-on in NegaraKu which is directing the country towards the abyss, economically and law&order-wise.

    IF you still don't get it, get the Here out of Hell! Hey, I am jesting hear OK -- to lift myself out of the depths of sadness. Which is endurable with passing time. That must also explain WHY I DID NOT WISH MY CHINESE readers worldwide Happy New Year. Cos there is nothin' to be happy about in Malaysia.

    It has all to do with TWO GIGANTIC CASES INVOLVING TRAVESTIES OF JUSTICE -- one involving the case of foreign national the late Mongolian beauty Altantuya Sharriibuu, and the other more damaging to our beloved country involving DS ANWAR IBRAHIM -- The Prme Minister-in-waiting who is the only politician the desperadoes in UMNO fear the most and would sparee no efforts in keeping him shut up!! --hence the continued demonisation of MP for Permatang Pauh and Opposition Leader  and his beloved family. -- SECOND TIME AROUND on trumped up Sodomy charges.

    Let me quote a poem from my Little Black Book "Midnight Voices and Other Poems" which I self-published in 2007, sold at cover price of RM15, but now a collectible item worth RM15X100; you wanna get my sole Reference Copy?

    From page 117, I reproduce part of the poem for thee because I pamper my ER~:)~~

    It Gets Curiouser and Curiouser

    When I was young I was told
    Spinning a story you must be bold
    But it still must have a beginning
    And an ending, and somethin’ in between
    But lately my motherland
    Gave birth to very strange events
    The cycle was like a record
    Being played out from the end
    Remember Michael Jackson’s video clip
    When uprooted trees regained their standing stature
    Dried up safari land became green pastures
    And elephant carcasses stood majestically alive again

    It gets curiouser and curiouser
    As was observed in Alice in Wonderland
    And events in Malaysia the past decade
    Closely mirror Lewis Carroll’s rich imaginings
    The story purportedly started in September 1998
    As many Anwarists would want you to believe
    That Reformasi was galvanized
    When the deputy PM was excised from the head

    But my friends, be reminded
    It was way back on a May Day in ‘88
    When the court sat on a holy day
    A panel of junior judges sacked their chief
    Salleh Abas Lord President was dismissed in a jiffy
    But then DPM Anwar Ibrahim held his tongue
    A decade later with one fell swoop
    Anwar became a lauded victim in the vicious loop
    Reformasi Anwar started, his loyalists proclaim

    They forgot Salleh and his Brave Ones
    Who stood their ground for justice
    They indeed were the unheralded Originals
    Reformation is not only taking to the streets
    It’s changing of the mindset

    What became of the Judiciary following Salleh?
    It was downhill all the way…
    It led the country’s leading judicious mind
    The late Tun Suffian Hashim to lament in 2000:

    “I wouldn’t like to be tried by today’s judges,
    Especially if I am innocent.”*

    *******Quoted from a speech on March 10, 2000 that the former Lord President delivered at a Bar commemoration for the late Justice Tan Sri Wan Sulaiman.

     DESI would like to highlight the following last stanza-- especially7-starred two closing lines! highlited in BLUE, thus ******* but two lines are in damning RED thus; dear ER, please ruminate on it and tell me its RELEVANCE? First 10 ER who answer via Comments may be rewarded with a photostat copy of the said book Midnight Voices, K!

    What became of the Judiciary following Salleh?
    It was downhill all the way…
    It led the country’s leading judicious mind
    The late Tun Suffian Hashim to lament in 2000:

    “I wouldn’t like to be tried by today’s judges,
    Especially if I am innocent.”


    For Desi, THERE IS "hope" YET!

    From cometh a post today which is uplifting!:~~~

    In a depress state lies a dim light

    Appeals court: No one should be afraid of criticising government
    PETALING JAYA: The public should not be afraid to talk about government and public officers’ conduct, says the Court of Appeal.
    In a 31-page written judgment by Court of Appeal Judge Justice Idrus Harun, in the case of Pahang Menteri Besar Adnan Yaacob suing Utusan Melayu for defamation, he noted the people should discuss their government and public officials’ conduct without being subjected to civil actions for their opinion.
    “We consider that as one of the fundamental principles, that in the exercise of the right to such freedom within the ambit of the Federal Constitution and related laws, the people should have the right to discuss their government and the officials in carrying out their duties.
    “Such right to talk has been enshrined under Article 10(1)(a) of the Constitution, without any common law principle being applied.”
    Idrus also said that any actions taken against individuals who voiced out their criticisms was against the public interest and would affect the fundamental liberties of a person.
    “As public interest dictates, a democratically elected government and officers should be subjected to criticism and every responsible citizen should not be restrained in their opinions on the government’s affairs and administration.”
    The panel, which also consisted of Justice Rohana Yusof and Justice Mary Lim, suggested that the Derbyshire principle, which rules that those holding office in public bodies like local authorities cannot sue in their official capacity, should be applied and be adopted in the country’s defamation laws.
    “The English court’s decision, in our opinion, is no less valid and should be applied and be part of our defamation laws.
    “It has a similar principle related to our freedom of speech under the Constitution and that public interest does not favour the right of government and its officers to sue for libel,” Idrus said.
    It is refreshing to see some judges are still upholding the law and liberty in this country. Sad that the same can’t be said about their fraternity brother in the AG chambers.👁

    Let Desi recall a short poem that a Pastor (is he also a Socialist writer after Desi's heART?) Martin Niemoller wrote:

    "First they came for the Socialists..."
    Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
    Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.


    DESI maketh a SPECIAL APPEAL to all caring and just-minded Malaysians to rise up against the evil regime before they cometh even into your neighbourhood to oppress and suppress more of our freedoms. Support the ongoing campaign by SDR ANWAR IBRAHIM's family led by eldest daughter MP for Lembah Pantai Nurul Izzah to FREE ANWAR -- a second campaign indeed as 'tis Deja Vu for the Opposition Leader for being put behind bards second time around on trumped up Sodomy charges. He already spent six years plus on "Abuse of Power" charges during the Mahathir regime; Add to that an incarceration before that two years under the Internal Security Act, Anwar has become Malaysia's Mandela, IMHO. Anwar has set an example for us. Please fellow Malaysians, do our little bit / byte to fight for our freedoms to campaign for Anwar's freedom. He carries the Torch of Freedom for ALL DECENT DEMOCRATIC-MINDED MALAYSIANS!
