Still waiting July 17, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Human Rights, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics.
Ignore the title. I’d blogged from Bukit Perdana earlier on my hp.
Nat is finally free!
Thank you everyone!!!
Media:- I want to convey special thanks to the Chinese media who ran Nat’s arrest and detention as a major story, some even giving the issue front-page treatment; bloggers who kept up the pressure by writing about it and signing the online petition; and the alternative e-media outlets i.e. Malaysiakini, MerdekaReview, Harakahdaily and KLPos. The issue was hot for 5 full days. thanks to them.
We had waited til 5 pm. Everyone was going nuts. Boredom brings out the creativity in us. I threatened to climb the tree next to the guardhouse and hang banners. The Chan brothers had dastardly ideas for the flag poles. But all’s well!
The revision of Nat’s original remand will still go on tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9 am, Criminal High Court 3. The lawyers are Sivarasa Rasiah and Amer Arshad Hamzah. The Bar Council will be holding a watching brief, as there are serious abuses in the arrest of Nat.
Please send good vibes to these two fabulous lawyers who are doing it pro bono. Not sure how it will turn out – sigh… the judiciary ….
*Someone* tried to talk the family from continuing the revision, (ya … we know who you are). Scared la.
Tough luck. You are so going down for trying to trick, intimidate and detain Nat.
