Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse. They are trying to amend the Sedition Act in Parliament.
Govt is submitting an amendment to the Sedition Act which allows denial of bail once charged. Far more draconian! pic.twitter.com/zKyyXkWTyI

Why should the public prosecutor be given the power to decide who is entitled to bail? Who appointed him/her judge? Shouldn’t this be left to the magistrate or judge to decide?
3) Immediate thoughts – an MP convicted for Sedition will lost his seat in Parliament since minimum is 3 years.

Abolish the colonial era Sedition Act! No to authoritarian rule!
