We may be chanting in due time, “Save the whistleblower”, next to “Save the Judiciary”, if this is allowed to go on.

Reveal the source of the ‘VK Lingam’ video or go to jail. This is the ultimatum given by the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) to two PKR members (Vice president and senior human rights lawyer R. Sivarasa (right) and party worker TT Sim). (lead story in Malaysiakini)
ACA goes after PKR whistleblowers (The Sun lead story, internet edition)
Today is Friday 5 October 2007.
ACA will record a statement for Anwar Ibrahim in the afternoon. It is unlikely that he, like the other two will reveal the source.
The lesson in all of this that this rotten filthy Barisan Nasional government is sending out to the people is, “It doesn’t pay to be a whistleblower.”
So next time, if you find a photo of a certain Minister cavorting with a certain Mongolian in an island bar, keep quiet.
If you have a record of a certain Minister asking a receipient of a ‘negotiated tender’ to double the cost of the project, keep quiet.
If you have a testimony of the driver and cash-courier used to transport cash to a dirty judge, keep quiet.
Because crime pays in this country. The crooks go free.
Bravo ‘Independent’ Panel, Police, ACA, Attorney-General! (note – all of them were at the meeting at Suhakam office on Wednesday)
Satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional. Woo-oot.
