10 FEBRUARY 2015
Today, 10 February 2015 will go down in history as the day that the once dignified Lady Justice was raped and left for dead by the Malaysian Judiciary, sacrificed at the altar of political greed and malice. Today, many Malaysians despair that our government and judiciary have plummeted into the deepest darkest depths of disgrace and ignominy. Given the facts before the court, reaching a decision such as this is beyond logic and reason.
Today, we mourn and grieve – but we must not wallow. Malaysians must pick ourselves up and resolve firmly that we will not allow this country to be destroyed by a government led by people whose only interest is to stay in power, even when they are not wanted anymore by the majority of her citizens.
The appeal process is exhausted and Anwar Ibrahim has no further legal recourse. That does not mean there is nothing we can do. Malaysians must respond through the ballot box. We need principled leaders who truly uphold the supremacy of our constitution and accept the rule of law. This country desperately needs courageous men who are ready to make the changes necessary to restore democracy, equality and fairness to this sadly corrupted and abused nation.
Let us never forget that the nation belongs to her people. It is our responsibility to restore what is precious to us for the sake of our future generations. When the next election comes around, Malaysians must remember the events of today and exercise their power to make a change. The Prime Minister and BN may think that with the jailing of Anwar Ibrahim, the voices that call for change will be crushed. They could not be more wrong.
We stand behind Anwar Ibrahim and his family as they once again face the heartbreak of separation and incarceration. Their sacrifices will not be forgotten.
Rakyat Hakim Negara.
