My comments posted on Tun Dr M’s, “THE RULE OF LAW”

Read my comments posted on Tun’s following article_

Assalamualaikum Tun,

 

TQ Tun again for the interview about Burma Politics granted to us. Tun’s wise third party vision and guidance are invaluable for us. But sadly Junta and opposition are not in a position for give-and-take policy for the benefit of the people. And both are keener to lord over the minority races and religious groups.

 

I am glad after reading Tun’s Rule of Law. I hope the present and future Malaysian governments would emphasize on amending or upgrading all the Laws, Rules and Regulations to be fair and give justice to all the citizens including all the foreigners here.

 

As a foreigner, when looking from our side, I feel that we are treated unfairly with xenophobic short sightedness here. It is even worse for the Burmese/Myanmars here because even Burmese Muslims are treated as 10th grade foreigners here. There is discrimination every where. We are not asking the privileges of the citizens but requesting to be treated equally as all other foreigners.

 

I hope Tun could push for the amendments of all the laws/rules/regulations/government circulars and orders to be written clearly so all the foreigners are treated equally.

 

We are pleased with Tun’s comments about ASEAN Charter’s Integration policy.

 

Thanking Your Honour

Yours Humbly

Wasalaam

THE RULE OF LAW

Malaysia is a country which practices the rule of law. Our laws must cover every aspect of our societal life, so we will know exactly what we can do and what we cannot do. Prime Ministers in particular must have everything spelt out for them in this respect. This will enable them to be charged if they had breached the rule of law long after they had retired.

Governments, serving Prime Ministers and Ministers are well placed to initiate action against others. But when the Government, the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister do something wrong, like cover-ups for example, then police reports may be made against them. But how can the person reporting be sure that the police will investigate without fear or favour.

I believe some reports have been made but so far there have been no results. Public confidence would be undermined if investigations by the proper authorities are not made. If the investigation is only to clear the name, then can we say the rule of law is being properly practised?

We therefore need to have more Royal Commissions manned by people of impeccable character like the ones on the Lingam tapes. The Commissions can then make proposals based on speculations and possibilities can then investigate the possibilities and probabilities and help clear those in power. When this is done we can say that this beloved country practises the rule of law
