PUTRAJAYA’S failure to rebut criticism on the Rome Statute led frustrated student activists to expose a briefing by a group of academics to the Conference of Rulers, which ultimately led to the withdrawal of the accession to the international treaty.

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) law graduate Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi told The Malaysian Insight he and other activists decided to leak the executive summary of a presentation by the academics when they saw that there was no attempt by the government to address misinformation over the treaty.

  • Statute is to protect the people. Strange as it seems some parties are against protecting people.

  • Charge the four so called Professor of law for instigating the Royal and starting of a coup. Right now it seems pointless to have the public dialog and debate as they are too chicken out to answer any questions. It is a serious affair and Mahatir should rally a rakyat outcries and order the Home Minister to apprehend all the deep state players. The rakyat is totally behind the PM. Bersih should rally the rakyat for a just cause march. A peremptory show of force by rakyat for the love of a country and the Government of the day. This shall put the deep state players off their intention. Do not let it fester. The hard fought GE14 should be steadfastly held on and protected with the rallying cries of "Runtuh Bangsat and Anchaman"
