Feeling disturbed by the arrest and two-day remand of human rights lawyer Eric Paulsen over a tweet regarding Jakim.

It was only about three weeks ago that Eric had spoken out strongly against deaths in custody. See this video.
I also cannot help thinking about the outcome of the Altantuya murder trial. The motive of those convicted in the murder remains unclear, and the whole case leaves many of us with more questions than answers. So there doesn’t seem to be real closure.
It is also strange that the faces of the pair have not yet been revealed to the public.
And how was Sirul allowed to leave the country? I am opposed to capital punishment (for one thing, they could take their secrets to the gallows without any hope of future revelations), but like many others, I wonder how he could have left the country.
