S114A of Evidence Act: Can we trust the government?

Martin Jalleh wonders whether we can trust the BN government’s pledge that it will not abuse Section 114A of the Evidence Act especially given that it has abused the ISA – something Minister Nazri has openly admitted to.

I am surprised that you asked, the reason why so manny rallies, protest and complains( just a few examples ) are taking places almost every day are more than proofs that the people of the country do not trust the government.
This would include some past leaders and sons of the past leaders who are now flocking to join the opposition. Have you heard of these people joining the present regime or a sinking boat ? Yes no doubt there were some frogs amongst them but nonetheless it is a sure sign the morons are in big trouble they are in a losing battles for their life, cancer in the final stages.
That must be the reasons for the delay calling for the GE until it cannot be delayed no more.
