Arrest of Anwar Ibrahim-latest news

The Malaysian Insider has several informative reports, please click HERE

There are a large number of protesters in the vicinity of the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters, which is located in Jalan Hang Tuah, directly opposite the now unused Pudu Goal.

They have been ordered to disperse by the police.

The police have reportedly blocked several roads in the area, including Jalan Hang Tuah, so a massive traffic can be expected in and around Kuala Lumpur.

The people will doubtless be very very angry, as the unnecessary police action in arresting Anwar, in such a heavy handed and dramatic way, using ten police cars to block his vehicle, and the participation of the UTK, [the police Special Action Unit 'commandos' dressed in black complete with balaclavas.]

The next thing we may see, could be the army out on the streets reinforcing the police, whose numbers are more than adequate to undertake their duties, then Malaysia will have degenerated into an oppressive 'banana republic' third world state.

The next hours and days will perhaps be a turning point, a watershed, for Malaysia.

The federal government had better tread very carefully, as the BN / UNMO ice is thin, and many of the citizens of Malaysia are ready to break it!

Democracy, human rights, freedom, and the rule of law must be maintained.

Rule by law, tyranny, intimidation, oppression and dictatorial action are not an acceptable solution.

People power will be the winner, come what may!

People should not be afraid of their governments.
Governments should be afraid of their people.
