Kugan's Case: Should Najib's Government Commit Hara Kiri?

Should Najib's government commit hara kiri?

It might as well do.

Malaysians (51% as opposed to 47%) who had not voted for it, see Najib's administration as a dangerous dinosaur that has outlived its time, being unable to distinguish its own skin from the Umno/Bn coalition that lead it.

And the Umno/Bn coalition, especially taiko and bully Umno, have become so set and ossified in their own corroding and corrupt? ways that Malaysians see the government they lead as detrimental and definitely inimical to the people and the country.

Now that the civil court has decided, the full weight of the law must be brought to bear on those who have been found liable for or causing Kugan's death.

Anything short of this, is to aggravate the already unsatisfactory situation of the Malaysian public servants' lack of accountability for their acts and omissions.

A bad reflection of a failing government that no longer responds to the plight of the people.

Those found liable, including the IGP himself, should be charged for dereliction of duty, abuse of power or even for manslaughter or murder.

In some other jurisdictions, the IGP would resign in disgrace.

In the Land of The Rising Sun, he might also commit hara kiri.

In Bolehland, it is hard to see this happening.

In Bolehland, one is likely to be promoted for failing in his duties instead.

This is the reality of Bolehland where anything and everything that is contrary and contradictory is the norm.

A very, very sad indictment of how badly out of shape and dysfunctional our public service and state institutions have become or reduced to, after 56 donkey years of Umno/Bn's boggling beneficence.

Let's just hope that the High Court decision is the end of the case and that no one is thinking of filing an appeal although if past experience is any indication, the government will likely file one - at least the other defendants won't feel comfortable otherwise.

And Malaysians don't expect anything good to come out of it, again if past experience is any indication.

It is almost like a sandiwara (opera show) routinely staged to reassure that everything is honky dory and there is justice and fairness - unfortunately, not necessarily on the rakyat's side.

Najib's government would do well to note what the judge had also said obiter dicta that it should not delay in the establishment of the much and urgently needed Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) and not treat what the learned judge had said as interfering in the business of the executive as Najib's mentor and the man many believe is still the power behind the throne was wont do do.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
