After my exposé of a circular on instructions to hasten judicial hearings of high profile cases which has now been confirmed – I have finally earned my ticket to Bukit Aman to have my statement recorded this Friday.
It looks like the reality of being a whistleblower in Malaysia hasn’t really changed since Malaysia Baru.
What we really want with our institutions in Malaysia Baru is a high standard of integrity. That is all I am asking for. That is what most Malaysians had asked for.
But it looks like Pakatan Harapan must have their way.
A supporter filed a police report because I had raised questions about political interference in a supposedly independent institution.
We have been cheated – Pakatan’s promises of greater freedom of speech and accountability are broken.
Malaysia Baru had meant that the rakyat are empowered to monitor & hold the government accountable. But it seems that the plot is now lost.
Weren’t the democratic values of transparency, non-political interference & responsible freedom of speech in Malaysia Baru the very same ideals bandied by the former Opposition all these years?
So much for PH’s pre-GE14 promise of more civil liberties, for more transparency and to abolish laws such as the OSA.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
