Validity of Sedition Act is at stake, says Paulsen

gerak hapus akta hasutan 0509 840 630 100Executive Director of Lawyers for Liberty, Eric Paulsen, says that the Sedition Act 1948 was merely adopted by the then Malaya and did not pass through an existing Parliament.
As such, its validity, in a modern democracy, is questionable.
Paulsen told the Rakyat Times that prior to independence, the Sedition Ordinance was enacted in 1948 and that piece of legislation was gazetted as law.
He explained that under Article (10) (2) clearly stated that only Parliament may by law impose the restrictions on the freedom of speech.

Sabah Umno BN Leaders Need to Stand up for Sabah

Kota Kinabalu: “Sabah Umno BN leaders need to come out of their cocoons and hiding places and put the facts correct to the federal government that Sabah and Sarawak (with Singapore then) formed Malaysia on 16 September, 1963. There should be no dispute and no ambiguity to this historical fact.” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, Chairman of STAR Sabah in supporting the call by a senior Sarawak BN leader cum Minister that those who distort history should be charged with sedition.

Time to Re-build ‘Batu Sumpah’ as National Monument

Kota Kinabalu: “The “BATU SUMPAH” or Oath Stone should be relocated and rebuilt as a National Monument as it is the only constitutional document in the whole of Malaysia erected specifically for the purpose instead of being relegated as a landscaping stone in front of the District Office” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, the Assemblyman for Bingkor where the Oath Stone is located.

“Every Malaysian and even tourists can visit this historical monument. It can be the pride of the whole nation”, he said.

Sabah Sarawak Clearly Cheated If What Najib Says is True

Kota Kinabalu: “The truth behind the takeover of Sabah and Sarawak by Malaya appears to be revealed, intentionally or unintentionally, by the comparison of Sabah and Sarawak “joining” Malaysia similarly to the States of Wisconsin and Hawaii joining the original 13 States of the U.S.A. as disclosed by PM Najib on Malaysia Day in Miri” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, commenting Najib’s statement that the newer States other than the founding 13 States in U.S.A. celebrate 4th of July as their Independence Day despite joining later and that Sabah and Sarawak should accept 31 August 1957 as the Independence Day of Malaysia.

Kota Kinabalu: “The removal of the key words “Kerajaan Malaysia Jamin” meaning “The Malaysian Government Guarantees” from the “Batu Sumpah” Oath Stone in Keningau shows that the Malaysian government cannot be trusted because they can change anything they want including the history of Malaysia and the rights of Sabah and Sarawak” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief.

What is the meaning and intention for the removal of the key words in the “Batu Sumpah”?

By removing the key words, the government of Malaysia can now say that they do not guarantee that religious freedom; forest and that natural resources belongs to Sabah and the safeguarding of native customs, adat and traditions. It reflects the insincere and bad intention of the government.

Why Are Federal and Sabah Govts Preventing Malaysia Day Commemoration at Batu Sumpah?

Kota Kinabalu: “Why are the federal and Sabah governments preventing Malaysia Day commemoration at the Batu Sumpah on Malaysia Day?   It is disappointing to see the police personnel turning out in full force with their Black Marias reading to stop and arrest the people from performing their commemoration rituals at the Batu Sumpah” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, who with a large crowd of hundreds who were prevented from entering the Batu Sumpah compound on Malaysia Day.

No More Empty Talk, Restore Equal Partnership to Save Malaysia

Kota Kinabalu:     “Malayan leaders, both from the BN government and the Pakatan opposition, should climb down from their high horses and stop the empty and hollow words to sweet talk Sabahans and Sarawakians on the future of Malaysia.  The time has come for all parties particularly the federal government to rectify past mistakes on the formation of Malaysia and save Malaysia before it is too late from saving it from breaking up” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, in his speech at Batu Sumpah, Keningau, on Malaysia Day, where the ceremony was being prevented from being performed by the police authorities.

Free Sabah from Malaya’s Domination and Occupation

Kota Kinabalu:    “The formation of Malaysia as a partnership through the merger of 4 sovereign entities is meaningless if Sabah continues to be occupied and dominated by the over-presence of Malayan government officers and federal government agencies” said Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, Chairman of BHF in his Malaysia Day message at the Batu Sumpah, Keningau.

Mengapa UK tidak penjarakan pemisah Scotland?

Wong Chin Huat, Malaysia Insider
Dua hari selepas Malaysia menyambut harijadi yang ke-51, bekas kuasa penjajah kita, United Kingdom (UK) akan menghadapi saat genting hidup-matinya: pungutan suara Scotland untuk menuntut kemerdekaan.

Soalan yang cukup menghairankan kita ialah mengapa UK tidak menggunakan Akta Hasutannya untuk menahan, menyiasat, mendakwa dan mempenjarakan golongan pemisah Scotland ini?

Mahathir thinks Malays are a dishonest bunch !

PETALING JAYA: In a no holds barred message at a book launch, former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he found it hard to trust Malays because they lacked a sense of honesty and integrity.

Mahathir said, “Malays think nothing of taking money that is not theirs. I have seen it with my own eyes. They also struggle to manage their finances well or with any degree of honesty.”

He added, ”If you take something that does not belong to you, what you are doing in essence, is stealing.”

Scots and Sabahans, share similar fate, and yet so different...

By Angus MacSwan

EDINBURGH (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday begged Scots not to rip apart the United Kingdom's "family of nations", flying to Scotland to man the barricades against a surge in support for independence eight days before a referendum.

Cameron appealed to Scots to use their heads and their hearts when they voted on Sept. 18. He reminded them of their shared history and bonds with England, Wales and Northern Ireland - twice evoking World War Two and the fight against Hitler.

Sabah Bukan Milik Malaysia

Kota Kinabalu: Kenyataan Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin bahawa Sabah milik Malaysia merupakan satu kenyataan yang menyimpang dan jauh daripada kebenaran. Malah ia boleh disifatkan sebagai berbaur penjajahan. Sejarah membuktikan bahawa Malaysia dibentuk pada 16 September 1963 oleh empat wilayah bekas jajahan British iaitu Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak dan Singapura (menarik diri dari gabungan pada tahun 1965). 

Ini bermakna bahawa Malaysia itu milik bersama Malaya, Sabah dan Sarawak. Tanpa tandatangan Sabah dan Sarawak, Malaysia tidak akan wujud di peta dunia.
