Remember those heroes?
They demanded him to apologize, he did under extreme pressure.
But what he get in return? forgiveness?
KUALA LUMPUR: The Cabinet has not accepted student Wee Meng Chee’s apology for the furore caused by his Negaraku rap videoclip on video-sharing web portal YouTube.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said the Cabinet had decided yesterday that they were not in the position to forgive him and that “the law would have to take its course”. (source)
No! Nazri said, he will be prosecute under the sedition act.
And NO ONE should use their position in the cabinet and political party to help him and ask for forgiveness.
Poor ol’ Dr. Chua Soi Lek of MCA, i think Nazri just told you to fuck off…
Ong Ka Ting must have expected this, so he kept his mouth shut, smart chap.
And the infamous Zam said if this(prosecution) is the wish of the people, then the government will comply.
Oh well, this is the same Zam on Tuesday:
Information Minister Datuk Zainuddin Maidin urged Malaysians to accept Meng Chee’s apology.
“He is still young. We should not be too hard on him but he should learn from this, particularly in handling sensitive issues,” he said, commending MCA on the way the party handled the issue.
Zainuddin hoped the people would not continue to harp on the matter as Meng Chee had already apologised.(source)
The minister asked the people to accept his apology, but the cabinet rejected him later, what happen to lead by example?
Anyway, i thought the police already informed the world that they cannot do anything?
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7 (Bernama) — Police have no authority to investigate or detain individuals involved in broadcasting the song “Negaraku” which had been adapted to insert seditious elements although it involved a national of this country.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohd Najib Abdul Aziz said the police could not take any action as the incident occurred outside the country.(Bernama)
The PM’s deparment or Nazri or the Attorney general’s office is more powerful than the police?
If the police have no authority to investigate, how the hell can they prosecute him? I’m no law sifu, so someone please enlighten me.
One last thing Nazri said,
He also said that he wanted action to be taken against video-sharing portal YouTube and other bloggers who have allowed sensitive material to be published that went against the law of our country. (source)
