UPDATES on ISA arrests at Susan Loone.
Above is #46 from Malaysian Politics Motivational Posters
UPDATE midnight 13 Sept 2008: Sin Chew reporter and Teresa Kok ISAed.
The Home Ministry has asked three newspapers to show cause on why action should not be taken against them over their news coverage on a number of political issues.
Confirming this, the ministry’s Publications Control and Al-Quran Texts Unit secretary Che Din Yusof told Malaysiakini today that the three papers were English daily The Sun, Chinese newspaper Sin Chew Daily and opposition PKR’s party organ Suara Keadilan.
He said the ministry has issued the show-cause letters yesterday and the three papers had been given a week to reply.
According to him, The Sun was asked to show cause for allegedly “manipulating and playing up numerous sensitive issues”.
Meanwhile, Sin Chew has been targeted for its recent reports on the racial slur controversy involving Umno division leader Ahmad Ismail.
If a public figure says something seditious, and a newspaper reports it, the government goes after….. the newspaper?? 😐
RPK is also arrested, yet again, this time under the ISA.
Kudos to Susan Loone for featuring the above. Click on link, she has a message for you to spread!
You tell me this isn’t playing like the script of a Monty Python sketch.
In fact, here’s on specially tailored for the farce: Ahmad Ismail: A Monty Python Sketch
Kudos to hutchrun for tip.
