1. The rule of law is an integral part of democracy. Malaysia today is no longer a democracy. Therefore we cannot see the rule of law being upheld.

2. Laws are meant to protect the citizens. What we see in Malaysia is laws being abused so that instead of protecting people laws are used to suppress and oppress people.

3. There is a law on official secrets. It is meant to keep secret certain documents regarding policies or decisions which the Government may or may not take at a given time in the future. If leaked, the Government’s freedom to decide would be constrained. It is not meant to hide from the public criminal acts.

4. But we have seen how reports regarding 1MDB and the 2.6 billion Ringgit in Najib’s bank account are declared to be Government secrets. These are about criminal acts. The law is used wrongly to hide possible crimes, crimes which need to be investigated.

5. Then the law allows the police to detain and even jail a person for wrongdoings. But when a person reported that there was something wrong with the management of 1MDB money, the person reporting was detained and charged as a terrorist.

6. There are due processes to be followed when a person is to be detained by the police. But the processes were just ignored. Again the laws are not upheld. They are being abused.

7. There is no law which empower Government agencies to demand for extra payment of taxes when all due payments have already been paid. But the tax authorities threaten to carry out raids on the premises, seize account books and take away passports if the extra tax are not paid. The people are being held to ransom.

8. The extra tax demanded run into tens of millions or even hundreds. Should the taxpayers refuse to pay and decide to go to court, until the court decides the taxpayer must pay. The legal process will take years. In the mean time companies cannot do business.

9. Members of the administrative staff are constantly being ordered to do work that is not proper or legal. If they refuse they would be demoted, transferred or threatened with loss of pension.

10. Extra-legal actions are demanded of the staff. When they refuse they may face punitive action. One senior officer was forced to resign, having been declared unfit to work by the PM. This frightens other officers should they incur the displeasure of the Prime Minister.

11. This is the situation faced by the peoples of Malaysia today. The laws do not protect them anymore. The laws are not upheld. In fact the laws are abused and are used to threaten people and to hold them to ransom.

12. The people dare not speak or protest against this abuse of power. They are afraid they would be victimised further. Without the rule of law they live in fear.

13. Their only hope lies in overthrowing the BN Government in the next election. Even here they are being threatened. The law says the vote is secret. The BN is passing the rumour that they would know who is voting for whom. They threaten those who do not vote for BN.

14. But the voters should disregard this rumour. The vote is secret. The BN Government will not know who you are voting for. So don’t be afraid. Government employees in particular should not be afraid. Don’t vote for BN. Whether they win or lose they cannot do anything to you.

15. But if you give your vote to Pakatan Harapan, when PH win we will compensate those people who had been victimised by the BN Government, both those in the Government and in the private sector.

16. So vote PH to restore the rule of law and democracy.

    Dari sehari ke sehari I nak beritau Tun, lupa, hari ini baru teringat.

    I dapati ubat2 dari klinik kerajaan yang diberi pada pesakit bukan ubat ori tapi ubat buatan tempatan.

    I pernah pergi beberapa pharmacy mereka kata ini ubat local. I sebut dapat dari klinik kerajaan, mereka jawab balik, memang biasa ubat dari gomen selalu ubat yang murah.

    Kandungan dalam ubat sama tapi bukan ori yang imported dari luar negara.

    31. Bak kata, each mistake made is still a revenue of the country.

    32. Henceforth, as political party, the rule of thumb is rule no 1 is never loose votes, rule 2 is never forget rule no 1.

    33. Whichever coliation gets the majority, they will name the pm and form the cabinet.

    34. Bersatu teguh.

    35. Bercerai roboh.

    36. Bak kata, masuk kandang lembu mengauk, masuk kandang kambing mengembek.

    21. When external uncertainty is beyond the control of the ruling government of the day to reduce budget deficit, the most effective way is through diversification to generate income to reduce the budget deficit accumulated is to make law more friendly users to attract fdi and at the same time to balance the export and import figure so that investors have confident.

    22. General election must be called to get the mandate from the voters through political parties.

    23. Flip then flop?

    24. Flop then flip?

    25. Undi itu rahsia, kata sri sense.

    26. Therefore, when the result of general election is out, then, everyone knows the result of the election.

    27. Bak kata, siapa kah mereka yang makan cili, mereka lah yang rasa pedas.

    28. Therefore, its up to the political parties of the divide to win votes.

    29. Race and religion issues are super sensitive.

    30. Eventhough there are no specific laws to define this issue, everyone is aware of what can be done, and what cannot be done.

    17. Martial law dah dibubarkan oleh dsn.

    18. Unless simple mind wants this law to be reactivated?

    19. Unless simple mind wants to repeat capital control, and repeg us dollar at certain rate like what dr m did?

    20. There is no secret in politics.

    Assam’kum Tun,

    What I feared most is when there is no Rule of law, the govt of the day would evoke Martial law, like Marcos in the next door neighbor! This will surly point to a DICTATOR govt.

    Salam Tun.

    1. Kejadian kita manusia sendiri adalah untuk mematuhi perintah tuhan yang menjadikan kita.

    2. Begitulah pada undang-undang negara kita Malaysia sepatutnya kita patuhi.

    3. Bagi kejadian kita di contohkan dalam agama Islam setiap makhluk yang melanggar perintah Allah s.w.t pasti akan menerima hukuman di hari akhirat.

    4. Maknanya kasalahan ini tetap terhukum juga akhirnya. Sementara sebelum terhukum kiranya pesalah menerima kesesalan diri dengan mengubah ke jalan yang baik atau pun taubat.

    5. Kadang-kadang hukuman dunia tidak setimpal yang mungkin satu rahmat kepada pesalah untuk bertaubat.

    6. Semua yang di ceritakan ini adalah perkara-perkara menjadi HARAPAN untuk terjadi. Kalau perkara yang tidak baik ini tidak terpulih ketika di dunia maka rakyat akan menderita selamanya.

    7. Sebab kesalahan pada tuhan pun akan terbukti KEBENARAN pada akhir zaman inikan pula kita tidak mahu memulihkan kerosakan ketika kita hidup yang pasti amat merugikan kita.

    8. Justeru benar bagai di kata cepatlah ubah ketika kita ada peluang seperti pada PRU 14 ini.

    9. Amatlah malang jika kita terpaksa mengubah di mana boleh berlakunya pertumpahan darah sesama rakyat yang mengakhiri sifat kasih sayang di antara kita bersama.

    10. Kepada tuhanlah kita berdoa memohon pertunjuk ke jalan yang di berkatinya.

    Hi Chedet,

    Nothing much to say. I am pretty much international now.

    This is my token to you for GE14. Brenda and I decided to give you the talisman I use to fight Iblis and won after 17 year:

    See ya, Old Coot. Good luck.
