Rule of Law phasing out in favour of political power

Saturday, 5 July 2008

What now ? Who's the law ? As we can now see the role of the rule of law has been quietly phasing out in favour of maintaining the political power of certain top leaders in the Barisan Nasional government.First we look at the trial of Abdul Razak Baginda on his involment in Altantuya Shaaribuu's murder.

The trial has been continuously delayed with increasing discrepancies on the prosecution papers of which might derail the entire process and make Razak Baginda and the three Unit Tindakan Khas (UTK) policemen free and case discharge. It may happen.

Second, blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin's(RPK) statutory declaration (SD) reporting that Datuk Seri Najib and his family's involment in Altantuya's murder. We must the greater picture on RPK's action from here. Why would he risk his life and reputation to make such a bold and daring report against Datuk Seri Najib. Was he a fool who is simply giving problems for himself and his family? He is a man of principle who in fact stood up with his truth of his knowledge that the deputy prime minister was indeed part of the murder scam.

And the other truth his the BN government is making all its effort to cover up as much as possible in order to avoid further damages on the deputy prime minister and Umno as well.Third, and that is now, private investigator P.Balasubramaniam made his first SD making known that he knew the fact that Datuk Seri Najib was involved in Altantuya's murder and had indirectly assisted Razak Baginda by dispatching his two UTK personnel to disposed the victim's body by authorising the C4 explosive to disrupt the murder evidence.

So, in all these acts and doubts, where is the law? We could only see that the BN government is tightening its grip on the judiciary (which was supposed to be independent) in favour of the current political power players.Fourth, Parti Keadilan Rakyat Advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was slapped with yet another "movie" liked sodomy charge after a report of an alleged victim named Saiful popped up after his meeting with the special officer of Datuk Seri Najib. This "movie" was made out of fear of the later's chances to be the prime minister might be affected should the PKR advisor make his way to the prime minister's office successfully this year end.

The power play by the DPM and UMNO deputy president shows the desparation was increasing. The BN and Umno leaders are trying to curb the rising opposition influence.Next, and final round, will Malaysia turn into another Zimbabwe soon (where President Robert Mugabe curbed the opposition's victory into withdrawal by instilling fear over the people) ?It is happening slowly and quietly.

The nation's economy is further declining with investors plying away into other regions for fear of political unrest in this country. Our friends, family members, parents and relatives are losing their jobs due to the retrenchments, VSS, forced closure of businesses.With the current political situation declining, we should go for another option. We need to get the Pakatan Rakyat in to stablise the entire nation's justice and security. This message must be dispatched to the public and our concerned citizens as soon as possible.
