One month ago, on 3 August,army personnel's from the 7 RAMD (Gerak Khas) swooped on Pulau Pandanan Kecil, off Semporna and ordered the villagers there to take down all the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) flags hoisted at their houses. When the villagers declined to comply, the army personnel's brought the flags down for them.If this is true, it is a most serious violation of our democratic right to suport the political party of our choice. As Ronnie explains, "The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement."
This action must be explained satisfactorily to the rakyat, and the government must be held accountable for it. Wakil rakyat, what are you waiting for?
P.S. Please read Ronnie's entire post here. It includes links to 2 videos of the incident.
