Another blow for democracy as Nurul Izzah is arrested

Many Malaysians are outraged at this latest development while those who have squandered billions of the nations wealth are roaming free.

Nurul Izzah has been taken to the Jinjang Police Station a short while ago. She was arrested under the Sedition Act, introduced by the colonial rulers.

She has been taken to the Jinjang Police Station and could spend the night there, if she is not released later tonight.

She has participated in an illegal rally. The police has the right to detain suspect for up to 24 hours. Now whats the problem when the law are being adhered. Does she think that she is greater then the others just because her father is the leader of the opposition or a former deputy PM.

Historically Yang Clan during Song dynasty in China was highly revered.
It just takes one to taint the image in this part of the world.

She did not touch on those matters, so what she did wasn’t wrong. It is like my case,”

What sort of regime is this, jailing a woman who is trying to free her father for non violent protest. The last I heard Malaysia allows free speech? Najib is a bully!

Yang, isn’t it time to sell sticky Elastoplast in Parliament?
This is killing basic rights of an MP who was trying to say the right thing at the right time in the right place.
