Two conflicting orders

It appears there were two sets of orders given to the police. Initial orders given were to treat participants “with care”. There was a second set of orders, it appeared, which was after the firing of tear-gas. It unleashed terror upon participants of the rally. We can’t understand how that happened.

Hanif panel

I am going to take up the Bar Council willingness to meet up with me and have a chat. I may discuss a bit more and stress the government’s hope in creating this panel.
Hanif Omar, Bersih 3.0 Independent Advisory Panel chief, on meeting with Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee next month

Evidence Act

The evidence act is not to victimize the rakyat. It is to protect the rakyat. Today, we talk about cyber crime, cyber terrorism, even cyber bullying. Do you know about the case in America where a student committed suicide after he was cyber bullied? The other student was charged in the end.

Paying for a movie?

Of course not! We have already seen public funds being used to produce this film that propagates the BN.

Samy Jr

It is not fair for me to go out there and get a seat just because my father is the former president of the party. -Vell Paari, son of MIC president Samy Vellu
