A tragic death of democracy

The special assistant to a Selangor state executive councillor, Teo Beng Hock’s death caused by MACC is tragically outrageous and the democracy of our nation is now at stake.

The MACC (Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission) had lost all its credibility and the trust of our people and they had also brought shame to our nation. Despite its new entity and upgrade recently, the MACC still practices selective political persecution by working closely with Umno to target and destroy democracy, justice, freedom and equality.

In fact MACC had also became a component member of the Barisan Nasional (BN) answerable only to the Umno top leaders and not the parliament who earlier enacted an Act to established the anti graft commission.

We, the people are watching all over you now. MACC had in fact demonstrated its one-sided policies by practicing selective persecution against members of Pakatan Rakyat for the so-called “abuses” claimed by Umno while corruptions of Umno leaders, ministers and officials are simply ignored and swept right under the carpet for good. This is a total cover-up. Why? Because MACC is part of the BN coalition at the federal level.

While the real culprits (Umno leaders, ministers and officials) are enjoying their lifestyles in big mansions and palaces from the money that they had stolen from our people, our socio-people oriented Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives are often being targeted as they are guilty criminals or terrorists.

With Beng Hock’s death caused by the MACC, we should say that there should be no more trust onto them anymore, no matter what sort of reasons they intend to give or had already given. MACC cannot avoid and run away from the people.

MACC used the taxpayers’ money to advance the interest and the political will of Umno in order to counter the rising popularity and influence of the recently emerged Pakatan Rakyat coalition of opposition parties (PKR, DAP and PAS).

Umno cannot do it by itself via a democratic ways and means and that is why they are using the judiciary, police, military and MACC to curb democracy, justice, equality and limit our freedom as well.

Umno and BN had committed a mass genocide against our people and the nation as a whole. And if we don’t vote them out, they are going to turn our entire nation into a battleground with civil unrest one day.

So, remember, Vote Them Out in the next general elections.
