The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission announced that it has arrested over 500 persons which involved corruption of RM6.2mil, meaning each case average about RM1 200.00. At a glance the cases must be quite small-may be include the Rm30.00 paid to small time traffic police around road corners. What happen to the big fishes? Are they beyond the capacity of the MACC?

UMNO has geared up to register voters-especially among its own party members. Only parties which are still sleeping don’t bother about this campaign to get more support. Whoever they may be who register new voters there will be more voters enfranchised as a result of the race to register more voters. Well done every one!

The vote buying complaint in Hulu Selangor by candidate Zaid Ibrahim has been thrown out by the court. So the case against Sibu’s vote buying will face similar fate-if ever there was a challenge. So Malaysia will become a country which openly allow vote buying -by (ab)using public fund at that! This judgement will make Malaysia a laughing stock among the world’s electoral democracies.! So confident about the vote buying antics the BN continue its vote buying campaign in Sibu-with the act being recorded in You-tube for all to see. May be the court of voters’ opinions will be the last sanction against such corrupt practice!

In the judge’s decision he said that the judgment did not mean that there was no vote buying in the Hulu Selangor bu-election-only that there are 2 defects in the prtition: 1. No bribed persons were named and prove that they had changed their vote due to the bribery; 2. the complete statement by the alleged bribe giver. The conditions set by the judge seems unreasonable as 1. the bribed parties can be named later in the trial; and attempted bribe is also a crime under the Anti-corruption Act; 2. There is no need to have an entire statement as the rest of the statement may be totally irrelevant to the bribery.
