Did you have to post bail?

EW: Nope. He’s not charged for anything 🙂

Nat Tan, a graduate from Havard, at only 27, will be a great asset to your country. I have been watching his blog, he writes well and think logically. He will have great future I am positive and no one or political party can sway him. He has good assistants.

I hope he will be released by 3pm today. If not, he may be detained for another two weeks, unless the Cyber Crime Division, is able to convince the Court, of their necessity to do so.

The devil and crook is the Deputy Minister of Security, Johari, who is acting on behalf of his boss your PM. Ultimately, Pal Lah is responsible for the action of his subordinate.

Aisey, I support the solidarity idea, anti-intimidation, anti-OSA and all. Great that he’s being released and all that. But to ask for flowers, soft toys, 100-plus and sandwiches, like celebrity liddat. Casts a rather frivoulous cloud over a serious matter of public interest. Better ways to spend money where it’s truly needed, you know. When you get carried away and it trivialises the real ISSUES – much bigger than the individual. Please, be sensible.

EW: tikus – those are his fav things! Ok – i’m going to bring banner too after reading your post!
if at anytime i get to walk out of cyber-crimes division, please bring coffee and coca-cola 🙂

I am most puzzled by your response to my comment. I think I am seriously missing something here. It is as if my suggestion for a little perspective has elicited some sort of reflexive, uhm, for want of a better word… defiance. Defiance against what? I’m just a nobody commenter. The individual is bigger than the issue? Is this how activsim works? *sigh*

EW: chill tikus 🙂 Naturally the issues at hand are very serious, but it’s a happy light moment when someone’s released, and we try to make it less formal and easy for the family. Being in remand may seem like nothing to most of us, but it’s in fact quite traumatic for the individual and the family. When I came out from my first remand, I had flowers, kopi-o, coca-cola and a carton of Malboro! After hugging everyone, I only wanted to eat a proper meal on a table, lie down on a proper bed, have a hot shower, enjoy the brief moment of real tangible taste of freedom, before all the serious stuff happen.

And seriously – thanks to your suggestion, I’m bringing the banners – I totally forgot about them! The serious political stuff will come after he spends time recuperating with his family and gf.

and you would assume I have never been in remand? NVM.

6. mouse - July 17, 2007

noted you have deleted my inoffensive comment:
“and you assume i have never been in remand? NVM.”

I wonder why. So much for free speech. But again, NVM. No worries. I won’t be commenting here again.

EW: Whatever. I’m not online 24/7 to sit and approve comments, moreso when I’m outside waiting for Nat to be released.

*slaps forehead*

@mouse: What do you expect to give someone just coming out of confinement, a copy of the constitution and a criminal law textbook?!

Thank God!
I pray I don’t have to light my hurricane lamp again!
To Nat and family…..God Bless You All!
To you Eli…..Hey, you are great!

EW: No lar, there were hundreds of people who did heaps, from churches to Opposition parties, bloggers to friends. It was great to have everyone united and working hard for a common cause!

here’s some humour for this tense moment

Good to know…

12. Mat Salo - July 17, 2007

Great job Eli!

Great effort – So glad Nat’s out… Bless you, bless you, bless you!

Now it will be interesting to see what kind of spin the police would say on the “charges”..

13. JerryWho - July 18, 2007

mouse is not a blogger, right?

eli, have you checked out his IP address?

This is your blog, it’s your right to delete, or approve any comments you want. It is not anyone’s god damned right to simply say anything anywhere.

Don’t be intimidated by those who hide behind some unmentionable names.

Anyway, time for wantan noodles and more duck soup in SS2.

14. Steve F. - July 18, 2007

A bit bemused over mouse’s comments. Surely someone like Elizabeth who worked on Nat’s release to such great length will not trivialise the issue? Must all efforts be directed to banners at the expense of some soft toys?

15. cherwith - July 18, 2007

Thanks for the great updates on nat…you are spot on! Great to know there are bloggers like you out there..good work!
