To serve, one sepak takraw player on the right side of the court throws the ball to his teammate standing in the middle, who then kicks the ball up and over the net.
On Feb 23, PKR’s Selayang MP William Leong wrote:
“Justice is not a cloistered virtue; she must be allowed to suffer the scrutiny and respectful, even though outspoken, comments of ordinary men”, quoting Lord Atkin. (source: Malaysiakini)
William is pushing a Free Anwar campaign and calling upon the public to widely criticize the Federal Court judgment on ketum’s sodomy case.
On Feb 24, Eric Paulsen the Liberty Lawyer wrote:
“Justice is not a cloistered virtue and the verdict to sentence the leader of the opposition to five years’ imprisonment for an archaic and widely discredited charge certainly must attract public scrutiny and condemnation in any democratic state, and Malaysia is no exception.” (source: Malaysiakini)
Eric is urging the judiciary to be open to the public criticisms on ketum’s sodomy case.
It does seem as if William lambung, and the next day Eric sambut itu bola.
Needless to say, PKR and Lawyers for Liberty have a close relationship.
LFL was co-founded by Eric together with N. Surendran and Latheefa Koya. The former is PKR vice-president while the latter is a PKR supreme council member.
Although Eric is portrayed as an NGO man, he nonetheless echoes the words and ideas of the opposition politicians. (I do wish he would try to employ more original thought and critical thinking.)
Eric is a member of the Anwar loyar team as well, together with Surendran, Latheefa and another LFL-er Michelle Yesudas. Very incestuous.
Would I be wrong to surmise that the ‘Liberty’ demanded by his group of lawyers is something out of the PKR playbook?
Are the NGOs fronting for the political parties?
The two pictures below are of the Negaraku and Bersih NGOs. Asyik recycle muka-muka yang sama aje.
Then there is Aliran in Penang whose relationship with the DAP can be characterized by the third picture below.
These NGOs are far from politically neutral. It’s time they stopped pretending that they’re non-partisan.
