    When police came into my home and took away my maid for questioning without a warrant, beat her and her friend up to extract a confession over some missing jewellery belonging to the other girl’s employer and defied a court order for her release, I was seriously thinking of getting a citizen’s action group going to ensure our protection from police abuses. Today I read the article on Malik Sarwar in “The Star” and am glad that there is already one such movement – so long as its apolitical, I’d like to be part of it.

    Please educate me what is meant by “legal entity”? I thought, in UK you do not have to register with the UK govt. to form an organization,run or operate 1.

    Greetings from Oklahoma. It appears that the Malaysian general election will be held in early 2011. Going by the sudden “project activities” by the BN, it definately will be held early next year. What will the Pakatan Rakyat do this time around ? Will the personal interest of individuals in PKR trumps over the noble goals of the opposition union ? Will the electrorate believe in Pakatan ? That PKR will be different from BN ? And that is the issue. How will PKR campaign ? What issues will PKR raise? More importantly, will the voters get the message? Unless and until PKR can convince the voters , it will be at a disadvantage. The BN has the money and the government bodies and agencies at its disposal to assist it in the election. So what can PKR do ? Even in the US, a country considered to be made up of politically matured electlorate, two primary issues still play a very important if not a deciding factor in being elected or not and as to which party wins and an election: prevailing economic conditions e.g jobs and unemployment and exploition of the peoples’ emotions and “fear”. The first can more or less be quantified but the latter can be manipullated by a good party or politicians.

    Greetings and congratulations to RPK for making the launching of MCLM possible. Now the real hard work begins. Getting memberships and participation is the key to the eventual success of this movement . In time we’ll see how genuine MCLM become or will it be just another body to be used as a platform for aspiring politicians to thrust themselves into the spotlight of Malaysian politics.
