There might be some in Kuching as news wind through the grapevine !

It was a very solemn vigil. Truly solemn filled with pain and sadness in everyone's faces.

A senior citizen I met from Jelapang expressed much sadness, said it's real heart-rending that an innocent young man to have fallen victim at the hands of MACC Officers who are no better than Altantuya's gruesome murders!

Jong said...

oops! Sorry should read:

"....sadness in everyone's

"...I still term it 'murder' cos he died DIRECTLY as a result from their 'gestapo questioning methods' till his body kicked the bucket suddenly. These 'experts' probably didnt know how far the torture could go before it was too much. MACC should remember they are not the police and the public has the right to know what methods are used when they call in someone for questioning. Otherwise, if and when Macc calls the next person for 'friendly questioning', be prepared - put all one's things in orderr first. You may came out

Thanks Jong for the slides but I hated to see the #@!$ fact of the guy with the wide grin.
What's there to be happy about in this occasion? ..."

Kind of odd, Anon. He does look unsynch. But you might have to credit him for being there hopefully not just because his feet moved him there. Let's hope he synchs back even if dozens of popping flash bulbs overwhelm him. ;))

Jong said...

Hahaha, typically Angela, is that you?
Cool down guys, that grinning guy in yellow? That was Perak ADUN Thomas Su(made famous by the Kedah fiasco dap agst PAS!). Thomas was glad to see me there. Notice he wasn't in black because he just rushed over from an earlier appointment. I was clickling away, camera in one hand and handphone the other while talking to Anil Netto. Thought that was a nice shot of Thomas, no? :D

Salak said...

Itu orang, ahh? He escaped slaughter from the abattoir? Better than chewing raw Buah Pala! ;))

Jong said...

A nation mourns sad ending of a dignified young man who stood his ground against MACC abusers and refused to be used to implicate/fabricate evidences against his bosses.

My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. Hope time will help heal and ease the pain.
