Then a minisiter, Nasri Aziz, called for the setting up of an alternate body to represent the lawyers.
Now, deputy prime minister Muhyddin has accused the Bar of having a perception problem of being dominated with opposition members and of being biased He also said that the onus is on the Bar to prove that they are impartial.
Haha, whose perception? The people's or the government's?
This really makes me laugh. When you say that someone bears the onus to prove something, you are saying that someone is on trial.
Haha, who's on trial? The Bar or the Najib adminsitration?
The Bar Council were merely doing their duty to report without fear and favour on their observations of the Bersih 3.0 rally. As well they should, under the Legal Profession Act 1976 on a matter of law affecting the people's right of assembly.
If you don't like their report because it is less then flattering to you, then you should just examine yourself and see if there were some truths in it and try to counter what you consider as unjustified and not straight away reject it is as biased and then call for the setting up of an alternate body to represent the lawyers because you are not happy with the present lot.
If you did, each time you receive a negative report against you, you will have to set up another body who will hopefully side you the next time.
Haha. But what can you expect of the Malaysian government? This has been the childish way it has been going about handling criticism against it - condemn and demonise the other party and expect the people to accede or change the ground rules.
Very clever. And very original. Except that the rakyat are now no longer so easily taken nor impressed with the GOM.
