A notice is put up in Radio Free Sarawak web site to say that the Radio will stop its comments till a decision about its future is made. That means that for the moment the Radio is muted as far as its comments and interviews are concerned. It is not known why that is the case and there is no benefits to speculate either. The listerners should just be patient while what ever caused the muting of the radio is resolved.The shutting of the radio’s commentaries will be felt as a sad lose by the many on-line listeners for sure. Meanwhile the Sarawak politicians who had been criticised by the radio must feel a sign of deep relief if they don’t believe in the freedom of speech in the first place. (For those who believe they must defend the rights of their critics to speak out!)
The following is the latest content preceeding the shutting up of the radio:
Radio Free Sarawak will be playing music and suspending comment until decisions about our future are completed. Keep listening and tuning in for now and we will bring you the news when we have it.
Today we cover the events of last night’s arrest and interrogation of SADIA Secretary General Nicholas Mujah. We also interview two other SADIA representatives who were arrested and threatened with charges of sedition for possessing CD’s with Radio Free Sarawak content. All were freed without charges, so we find out just what happened! We also speak to Willie Kayan and RPK.
Breaking news on Radio Free Sarawak as we reach crunch-time for Sarawak’s opposition parties. As PKR leaders meet this evening in KL to confirm who is to lead them into the imminent state elections, we reveal that a faction has raised a petition to oust Baru Bian. Is the surprise move against the most popular oppostion leader for 30 years a sign that rivals have started to see the potential for real power? Will internal bickering destroy that chance at the brink of an election? We have exclusive interviews with the alleged ‘PKR plotters’ and with the key players heading for the meeting in 2 hours time.
Also, Taib has hit back against Radio Free Sarawak by arresting high-profile NGOs for possessing CDs of the programme! Human rights lawyer Abun Sui and SADIA Secretary General Nicholas Mujah were interrogated after separate raids last night and threatened with charges of sedition! We interview blogger RPK about the misuse of Malaysia’s outdated sedition laws as we await the outcome of their case.
