Gerakan K, you are talking like 70’s Chit Tiao Lor’s Ah Beng ah long!
Since when you think you can act like one or is it the recent spate of samseng-ness in BolehLand?
You ‘warning’ code of blogging ethics is no different from the samseng-ness against Bersih 3.0.
Beh Tahan! Ah!

“someone voluntarily hiding few days”
This is the norm in Boleh Land of anything can happen to the good souls & filthy rewards for the bad souls!

I thought that under the whistle blower law we are protected.
Now you must understand that the whistle blowing law is to who you are whistling otherwise you will get into real trouble.

Now in the 1 Malaysia boleh land, (are) thuggery, mobster, corruption, whistle blowing etc etc … (condoned) as long as you are on the right sides(?)

MACC has been ordered to round up any and all whistle blowers because they are opening up cans of worms that have been hidden away for decades. Even when the NFC scandal is so obvious as to who the culprits are, the MACC finds it prudent to muzzle the whistle blower and not the perpetrators of the 250million ringgit scandal. MACC is worse than the ACA that it replaced. MACC is a far cry to the Hong Kong anti-corruption agency that it is supposed to be modeled on.

This is sheer intimidation and also to deter further whistle blowing !
A good example of what it is like to live in Malaysia. To change all that just make sure you cast your vote to have the morons from Umno kicked out of Putrajaya in coming GE, enough is enough !

We pray Shamsubahrin is safe, you know it is scary to note that he is taken away at such hour, knowing the the records of people found dead at MACC buildings! Scary indeed! And the MACC is getting very active of late, but, all for the wrong reasons, like acting on hearsay, opening cases of 30 years ago, and all at the usual suspects! Where sodomy 1 failed, sodomy 2 failed, sex tapes failed, all types of allegations thrown at him, all failed to stir the the imaginations of the Rakyat! Will MACC’s latest actions endear them to the Rakyat?… Read more »
