SEPANG: A man, believed to be international wildlife trader Anson Wong, has been detained at the KL International Airport following the seizure of more than 90 snakes from various species
Okay now you may have heard of him or not but just to give you a glimpse of how big this guy is , He is known as the Pablo Escobar of the wildlife trade . He has been convicted of trafficking in highly-endangered species by the US government in 2001 after a three-year probe by its Fish and Wildlife Services
Dude cant sing and he gets upset and sings and sings. Despite security asking him to leave he refuses to leave and went mental and eventually got arrested!
This is a truly sad day for all Malaysians and a severe dent to the freedom of speech .RPK will be sent to the Kamunting Detention Center in Taiping, Perak today to begin his two-year detention under the Internal Security Act.
Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar had signed his detention order last night for the blogger to be held without trial under section 8(1) of the tough security law. Under the Act, the government can renew his detention indefinitely.
There was 1 brave blogger who revealed a lot of information without any fear and those allegations were never investigated by any party but he was slammed into a corner and put into detention without trial to keep him quiet.
RPK will join the Hindraf 5 at Kamunting the other detainee’s who have been detained under this horrible piece of law. Sick! THIS IS THE DARK SIDE OF MALAYSIA.
I’m wondering how come Raja Petra’s allegations were not investigated and brought to the court of law? How come whenever a case is filled against the ruling govt, we don’t hear about it?
Mr Syed Hamid, how do you sleep at night?
Recently Malaysia has been experiencing a frenzy of bloggers that have been arrested. This year alone we saw bloggers RPK,Penarik Beca and Kickdefella being arrested. I was wondering if this is a trend that has been happening around the world that our government have been “learning from”
I must find the book “101 ways to keep bloggers shut” I think some governments of the world skipped the content and got to the end bit where it said ARREST THEIR ASS. Its mind boggling that government see bloggers as national threats and rapist,kidnappers and murderers are still roaming around looking for new targets.
Last year alone we had Nurin,Sharlinie,Preeshena and god knows how many more were either murdered or kidnap. The highlight after they have gone the cases were suddenly not spoken about and no updates were given. Are bloggers that bad that you need to arrest them and give them such a hard time??
Well back to the original story… Continue reading »
With the arrest of bloggers and politicians which is severely denting freedom of speech lately i was wondering if this crap only happens in Boleh-land and apparently not! Another country which arrest bloggers who are critical of the government is Egypt. In Egypt many bloggers have been arrested without proper justification. It seems that some governments think they are superhero’s that can wave the powerful wand and shut off those who speak against them.
