POLICE are not to be blamed for using the Sedition Act to investigate a recent forum on the Rome Statute as it is Pakatan Harapan that has failed to keep its promise to repeal the colonial-era law, a panellist at the forum said.

Former ambassador and Group of Eminent Malays (G25) spokesman Noor Farida Ariffin said the use of the act following police reports lodged against the forum showed that Putrajaya is overdue on fulfilling its election manifesto.

  • I would be bother with this SEDAR actually are a unit established after the fall on the previous administration. Perhaps the police can also check their registration credentials and what is the organization stated objective to ROS. They have no website to state their mission statement, objectives, what their organization structure like. All they have is a Facebook page created July 1, 2019 and you see their photo postings I believed you would be able to distinguish who they are without much thoughts to it, a cell unit form and funded by you know who, of people who doesnt enjoy the free dedak feed anymore in a nut shell; a bunch disgruntled people with the habit of sticking stickers.

  • Perhaps those lodging the report ought to be investigated for instigation to subvert.

  • Outgoing Fuzi should have exercised his discretion in calling this forum seditious when the Sedition Act is long overdue for an overhaul.
