Sarawak Hansard tampered with?


The opposition in Sarawak have accused the state government of tampering with the state assembly’s Hansard, the recording of the Dewan’s proceedings.

See Free Malaysia Report here.

An independent source told me the episode is accurate as he was unable to download the fourth day’s proceedings. “The fourth day proceedings were mainly opposition speeches. It has not been uploaded. If Parliament can upload opposition speeches in Hansard, why not Sarawak? Or is the Sarawak Chief Minister beyond reproach?”

Where is the Hansard for the fourth day (4 November 2010) on the Sarawak Legislative Assembly website here.

This amounts to a a travesty of democracy that is reminiscent of totalitarian regimes – to even deny the existence of any record of proceedings instead of allowing access to information. How then to trust the government would not misrepresent other realities in Sarawak? Already, Sime Darby got burnt. How many more will get burnt? Can investors really be impressed with the state government’s approach to doing business?

I wonder why his pilgrimage did not make him insaf of the wealth he had accumulated…?
