Umno’s vision of citizenship August 13, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Huh?!, Human Rights, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics, Southeast Asia.
Three resolutions related to bloggers and internet freedom, passed by the Kelana Jaya Umno Division (Mat Tyson’s) over the weekend.
From these resolutions, it is clear that Umno doesn’t quite understand the simple laws of extradition, the function of laws, the concept of citizenship and what constitutes a functioning democracy.
They can’t even revoke shiok-sendiri titles (Datuk, Tan Sri etc. etc.) from crooks, underworld tai-ko’s and those who try to walk out from a foreign country with RM 2 mil in cash; they want to revoke citizenship? W*nk*rs.
The resolutions are as below:
• To urge the government to develop special laws to take action against webmasters and bloggers, including foreigners, or locals who published comments, sketches or reports aiming to slander or insult the sanctity of Islam and the country’s constitution, be it locally or abroad;
• To urge the government to develop special laws to enable the extradition of bloggers, webmasters, foreigners or locals who spread lies, insult Islam or the constitution, instigating tension and enmity among different ethnic groups; and,
• To call for the revocation of citizenship of Malaysians considered traitors, whether the offence is committed locally or overseas, if a prima facie case against them is established. If the offence is committed by foreigners residing overseas, firm action must be taken to prevent them from entering the country. For those residing in Malaysia, legal action must be taken to evict and blacklist them from re-entering the country. (Source)
