Malaysian Government arresting more and more bloggers!

Malaysiakini reports: HERE

and The Star on-line HERE

The police have arrested another blogger, ‘Sheih Kickdefella’- Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz, in Kota Baru this afternoon.

His blog url is:

His wife said he was arrested under the Sedition Act 1948.

He is said to have suggested flying the Malaysian national flag upside, (this is an informal international distress signal.)

Another blogger, Abdul Rashid Abu Bakar - ‘Penarik Beca’ was arrested a while ago, and then released (see his blog), also under the Sedition Act 1948.

An earlier report that he had been arressted again, now appers to be untrue.

Are they starting a campaign to pick up bloggers one by one?

Malaysia seems to degenerating into a more oppressive, and more undemocratic place, than it already is; where will this end?

A new federal government may be an excellent solution.

Credula vitam spes fovet et melius cras fore semper dicit

Credulous hope supports our life, and always says that tomorrow will be better
