Read about Botak's U-turn on ISA Arrest...
After Zaid, another minister speaks up against Botak.... guess who? HERE. Looks like Hishamuddin is aiming to distance himself with the sinking ship and is posturing himself for the "reformed" Umno! Either that or he is posturing for similar exit as Zaid Ibrahim...
Besides that, a host of BN chorus boys join in the fray... HERE. My question is this, MCA, MIC, Gerakan.... who started it? Who knelt down before Umno in the past? Why la now only make noise? Are you making this noise to arouse anger and hatred amongst the people? If that is your intention then I suggest that you all SHUT UP.
Botak claimed that Sin Chew's journalist Tan Hoon Cheng was held under ISA... wait.. let me rephrase that, PROTECTED under ISA... this is her ordeal.. HERE.
She claimed that:
Later, the female officer told me that they are arresting me under Internal Security Act, therefore a warrant is not required. On hearing that, I was immediately prepared for the worst.
I was taken to the Seberang Perai Tengah police district office where I was placed in a chilly room...
After clearing my mind and organising my thoughts, I tried to sleep on the wooden bed with the company of the mosquitoes and the noise of dripping water.
After the interrogation session, I was taken to see another higher-ranking officer who told me: "We can both go home now!"
Let me see, to be "protected" means we have to put up with a chilly room... sleep on wooden bed with mosquitoes for company and being interrogated!
Now if we can take a step back and imagine RPK and Teresa Kok that is really under detention!
While I am writing this I read Zaid Ibrahim, the only man with sanity right now who can no longer take the idiocrisy of the people around him. He has tendered his resignation! HERE.
At last he realized his ambition to reform Umno from the inside is akin to throwing salt into the sea.... BN and Abdullah has lost one of the conscience of the government. If this means that Botak got his way after his scathing attack on Zaid, then let Botak bask in his glory for now... his days in power is about to come to an end. Abdullah for all his endeavour has failed to act on the reforms mooted by Zaid and he is now paying for his inaction...
