Bersih 2.0 chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah was barred from leaving Malaysia to travel to South Korea to receive the Gwangju Human Rights Award 2016 on behalf of Bersih.

No proper explanation was given to Maria as to why the ban was imposed, except that the instruction was from Putrajaya.

This video was broadcasted during the awards ceremony.

The EC is a shadow of a toothless paper tiger! The EC is entrusted to ensure free and fair elections but they have been sitting on their BUTTS, watching…blindfolded….the stinky, slimey, slippery, cunning schemes played out by BN to win the election with a landslide of cow … victory!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
