The Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, along with the Inspector General of Police Musa Hassan and of course, Election Commission Chairman Abdul Rashid Rahman should be charged under the Sedition Act for their role in that fiasco.
Under Section 3(1) Sedition Act those acts defined as having a seditious tendency are acts with a tendency:
(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler or against any Government;
(b) to excite the subjects of the Ruler or the inhabitants of any territory governed by any government to attempt to procure in the territory of the Ruler or governed by the Government, the alteration, otherwise than by lawful means, of any matter as by law established;
(c) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the administration of justice in Malaysia or in any State;
(d) to raise discontent or disaffection amongst the subjects of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or of the Ruler of any State or amongst the inhabitants of Malaysia or of any State;
(e) to promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia; or
(f) to question any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of part III of the Federal constitution or Article 152, 153 or 181 of the Federal Constitution.
Let me explain point-by-point:
(a) Upon hearing that the indelible ink was not going to be used in the elections, half my colleagues and many of my friends swore violently, kicked some tables and spewed profanity against the ruling government, namely Barisan Nasional. There was plenty of anger, contempt and hatred felt and displayed.
(b) The acts mentioned above are evidence of excitation of subjects and inhabitants, many of whom vowed to return to their kampung to vote for the Opposition. Thus, the Opposition were unwittingly assisted in the procurement of their respective territories.
(d) Currently, there are a great number of people very outraged that the indelible ink had been purchased at the price of RM2.4 million and simply gone to utter waste based on hearsay, unfounded rumours and inconclusive evidence. The objects of our distaste are members of UMNO and BN, who are also subjects of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or of the Ruler of any State or amongst the inhabitants of Malaysia or of any State. Thus, the PM and Election Commission who were in favour of revoking usage of the indelible ink should be held responsible for this situation.
(e) The above-mentioned parties are also responsible for feelings of ill-will against all BN component parties to the extent of delivering a severe blow during the elections.
(f) N/A. What kind of stupid shit is that?
Therefore, I would strongly recommend investigation of the parties mentioned and consequently the maximum sentence imposed.
