Malaysia menjadi "Malingsia"? / My sympathies for the A-G

Malaysia menjadi "Malingsia"?
Update 8.25 pm: Berapa ramai lagi rakyat Malaysia yang merasa jengkel dengan permainan tolak tarik Peguam Negara. Masa saya tulis posting ni, saya tak dan nak tengok posting Ahirudin Attan bertajuk "My sympathies for the A-G". Baru sat-sat saya tahu bila tengok auto update dalam Malaysiakita (sila lihat kandungan kedua, "From top 50 Malaysian blogs").

Aisehman pun mengulas perkara yang sama dalam posting bertajuk "Only I Can Save You Now". Sedap dia kata:

Next time you get in trouble, make sure you get the PM to plead for mercy on your behalf.

What you actually did, or did not do, is irrelevant.

Saya tak tanya Ahirudin. Aisehman lagilah tidak. Tak dak siapa pun tau dia siapa. Saya tau tentang posting Aisehman di tempat yang sama. Tetapi orang-orang yang tidak pun berjumpa, jauh lagi bermesyuarat atau berpakat, mempunyai kejengkelan yang sama terhadap keputusan Peguam Negara. Persoalannya, berapa ramai lagi?

Memang betul Ahirudin kata, Peguam Negara sudah menjadi bahan ketawa. Nak tanya sikit, langsung tak malu ka? Teringat riwayat yang menyatakan RasuluLlah s.'a.w.w. bersabda: "Jika kamu tidak malu, buatlah sesuka hatimu."

Ketua Hakim Negara yang baru menerima jawatan dengan penuh keazaman seperti yang dicatatkan dalam posting Kak Ton, "CJ vows to do what's right". Sia-sia sahaja keazaman itu?

*****
Malaysiakini melaporkan "Perhimpunan Batu Caves: Tuduhan cubaan membunuh digugurkan". Sambil mengalu-alukan keputusan itu, ia sebenarnya menimbulkan lebih banyak kecurigaan terhadap sistem perundangan negara ini.

Persoalannya, apa kewajaran ketika tuduhan cuba membunuh itu dibuat? Dan, apa pula kewajaran ketika tuduhan digugurkan? Adakah kerana Perdana Menteri meminta Peguam Negara menimbangkan rayuan supaya digugurkan tuduhan cubaan membunuh?

Dan, ketika tuduhan cubaan membunuh dibuat, adakah kerana Perdana Menteri meminta Peguam Negara memaksakan tuduhan cubaan membunuh? Adakah semuanya kerana Perdana Menteri minta?

Kalau benar semua yang dibuat oleh Peguam Negara berdasarkan apa yang diminta atau diarah oleh Perdana Menteri, undang-undang apa sebenarnya digunakan di negara ini? Undang-undang gila?

Di Indonesia sudah ada tuduhan bahawa negara itu diperintah oleh maling (pencuri). Adakah negara ini juga diperintah oleh maling? Maling yang mencuri undang-undang? Kalau benar begitu, jangan marah kalau negara ini diejek dengan panggilan "Malingsia".

Kalau saya yang menentang Barisan Nasional tertanya-tanya, orang Umno pula marah. Baca posting Biggum bertajuk "Court acquits 31 �extremist militants� after PM being seen going �Flip-Flopping� , again". Jangan pula lupa membaca perasaan PAS dalam berita bertajuk "Tuduhan ke atas Hindraf dikaji, Batu Burok diketepi : Perdana Menteri pilih kasih?"

My sympathies for the A-G
Charges against Hindraf 31 dropped. Why my sympathies for Gani Patail? Because today he's no longer just a laughing stock. After this day nobody will take the Attorney-General seriously. They'll say he gave in to pressure from the PM. Compromised.

I welcome the decision to drop the "attempted murder" charges against the Hindraf 31. In my earlier posting here I clearly stated that the A-G's excuse of charging the men for attempting to murder a cop on Hindraf Sunday "sucks big time".

Gani had been so cock-sure. "They threw bricks at his head. Do you think it will not cause death?" He didn't count on the Prime Ministertaking pity on the Hindraf 31.

I pity Gani Patail because in my eyes, and probably in the eyes of many, he's lost a hell of a lot today.

The 31 must thank the PM. For his firmness or his softness, he got the A-G to drop the charges. But the PM will not come out of this smelling entirely like roses, at least that's not what Big Dog the rabid pro-Umno blogger has to say here:

"This news shall be received adversely by many quarters as they see the 'Flip-Flop' Prime Minister Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi turned soft and �conveniently forgiving�, despite so many parties, including within UMNO leaders and NGOs representing a wide spectrum of the rakyat, vehemently made calls for stern and decisive actions be taken against people deemed 'extremist militants' and 'guilty of high treason'.
The principle of the 'Rule of Law' must be observed and practiced, to give confidence to everyone that they are protected under the Constitution and no one shall have any veil or exception of this rule, even when their representatives go pleading to the Prime Minister."

For now, the People rest their case.
