Umno's Police Report Against Malaysia Today. The Start Of Blogger Crackdown?

Umno has lodged a police report against Malaysia Today for carrying a series of comments and remarks that it deemed as insulting the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, degrading Islam and as inciting hatred and violence in Malaysia's multi-racial society.

Party information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib lodged the report at 12.57pm at Tun H.S. Lee police station here Monday.

He said the comments and remarks, consisting of criminal elements and inciting religious and racial sentiments which could affect the country’s security, were carried by the blog on July 11.

The report was lodged under Section 121 (B) and Section 123 of the Penal Code, Section 4 of the Sedition Act 1948 and Section 263 and Section 266 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

"I think they are very irresponsible," he told reporters at the police station. (TheStar)

***** First Nat Tan, now Raja Petra? We'll just have to wait and see. But you can be sure that the cops would drop everything, give this police report top priority and 'investigate'. Arrest won't be too far away. A shame really.

This is not really a comment. Iand my friends are experiencing difficulties accessing RPK's website, Malaysia Today,- "could not connect to MySQLdatabase". Is this a "blackout" attempt by the authorities? If you can access and reproduce the article "A game of cat and mouse" on your site it would be a big help. Thanks

No, you have to be careful, a "cut and paste" can land you in trouble (i.e. remember Nathaniel Tan's case). Carrying the article can be a flimsy excuse to charge another blogger. The bloggers must be careful in view of this suppression. A camel's hair can land any blogger in shit. It is a spiteful campaign against freedom of thought and expressions. This is indeed the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Come on Umno, don't hide behind the King or Islam. What Malaysia Today had said may be insulting to Umno. But they are the truth. Is it a crime to be honest? Is it a crime to tell the truth?

When war is declared, the "truth" is always the first casualty.
