In an article entitled “Inconclusive Findings” in the Eastern Times of 16 September 2009, James Ritchie wrote:

Led by Director-General of Women’s Development Department (Jabatan Pembangunan Wanita) Dato Dr Noorul Ainur Mohd Nur, the 24-member team, which included the likes of Ivy Josiah from the Women’s Aid Organisation, Dr Prema Deveraj from the Women’s Centre for Change, a Penan geologist working with Petronas John Fery James, and officers from the Health, National Registration, Welfare, Rural Development and Education Departments, was set up….

Is there a pattern in the way the Opposition is being targeted? Is this going to be the new strategy to contain the Opposition? Malaysians are genuinely perturbed by the new trend that has emerged.

First it was the son that they went for. They suspended him for the day and that should have been the end of the matter. But no, that was not enough. They had to use the sledgehammer to show that they are in power and that their majority can do whatever it wants to.

It is never too late for right to be done and for the truth to be told, says Ambiga Sreenevasan, in launching the report of a panel of eminent persons to review the 1988 judicial crisis.

The civilised world must be outraged by what is taking place in Malaysia. Justice is being trampled upon and truth is being sacrificed for political expediency without shame or remorse. And it is not fair that we have to suffer this humiliation.

Thinking Malaysians are perplexed how on earth the police went ahead to investigate Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy even though there were allegedly medical reports confirming that there was no basis for their action.

It is troubling to read the Prime Minister’s view on the Lingam Tape Report with regard to whether it would be made public or not. In responding to this question, he had said, “I want to see what is inside, what is being said and examine it in details before deciding.”

This means he has an option either to make the Report public or deny the people access to its contents. This option is not acceptable to civil society.

Aliran is happy to note that the Lingam Tape Report has been finally concluded and the Report submitted to His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

But Aliran is perturbed that there is no indication that the Report will be made public. It is our considered view that the public is entitled to have access to the Lingam Tape Report. We demand that this Report be made public.
