WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE COUNTRY WAS BEING ROBBED ANWAR?

Press statement by Kua Kia Soong, SUARAM Adviser 28 October 2019

The ‘PM-indeterminate’ Anwar Ibrahim seems to have picked the wrong example to try to be on the right side of the ever-determined Prime Minister. He has lambasted one of Malaysia’s more honest academics, Dr Lim Teck Ghee for apparently “keeping quiet during the era of corruption and theft under the BN government” just because Lim called the PH record since the 2018 general election “an unmitigated disaster”.

I DIDN’T KNOW WE HAD AN ORANG ASLI PRIME MINISTER!

Press statement by Kua Kia Soong SUARAM Adviser 26 October 2019

He further said that the “indigenous people in Malaysia”, referring to the Malays, had “shown tolerance” when people of different ethnic groups held such gatherings, and they had been accepted as normal.

Press statement by Kua Kia Soong, SUARAM Adviser 25 October 2019

The banning of Superman’s (sic) comic book on China’s Belt/Road Initiative must surely be the ultimate farce under our so-called “New Malaysia”.

WAR ON TERROR: RULE OF LAW IS PARAMOUNT

Press statement by Kua Kia Soong, SUARAM Adviser 22 October 2019

Do Malaysians still remember how the Prime Minister has repeatedly stressed that “New Malaysia” is strictly based on the rule of law? This is apart from the PH GE14 manifesto that promised to do away with detention without trial laws such as SOSMA, POCA and POTA.
