What does it say when a group riots and attacks an elected Member of Parliament in the compound of the august house, gets a remand to be kept for four days and the police frees them all only after one night?
What does it say when police say that they are investigating the group of people, one who is a son of an MP, for rioting, but allow them to walk free without being charged?
What does it say when the august house is defamed and authorities are saying they will do something about – Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan said that he will – and yet they do not seem to be doing anything?
What does it say when the minister in charge of the security of Parliament says that he will check who sponsored the group into the Parliament compound and yet, days after, there is no mention of who the sponsor is?
What does it say when there has yet to be a public apology by the authorities in charge of the Parliament security to MP Khalid Samad for being attacked in a place which was supposed to have top notch security?
It says much and yet, it says nothing good at all about the way authorities work in this country.
Malaysiakini reported that police have freed eleven individuals detained in connection with the commotion at the Parliament compound last Thursday.
The article reported that according to Oriental Daily, a police official confirmed that the 11 were released on Saturday after spending at night in police custody.
All eleven individuals, comprising eight males and three females, had surrendered to the police on Friday morning. Police managed to obtain a four-day remand order.
On Thursday, a group tried to harass Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad within the Parliament compound.
They claimed to be supporters of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry deputy minister Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.
The supporters were angry at Khalid for using the term “sial” to describe Tajuddin during the height of the “Kok row” in the Dewan Rakyat.
Among the eleven under investigation by the police was Tajuddin’s son Faisal.
According to the police, the 11 individuals are being investigated under Section 147 of the Penal Code for rioting, reported Malaysiakini.
