  • Karpal was my inspiration to study law
  • Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud | Today 8:23AM
  • It was 2.30am on a Thursday and I was sitting at the dining table in the kitchen. I have been staring at my laptop for almost 12 hours, tapping into the keyboard, writing another story.

  • Ode on the death of Karpal Singh, MP...
  • Clive S Kessler | Apr 17, 2014 1:19PM
  • The Malaysian state may now,
    If it so chooses,
    Be proud of the fact
    [And rejoice forever in the ensuing glory]
    That its last official act towards this great man
    Was to find him guilty
    Of upholding the principle -
    The uncontroversial and incontrovertible principle -
    That the rule of law is the rule of law
    And that constitutional supremacy means exactly that;

  • A good soul you are, Karpal
  • Azly Rahman | Apr 17, 2014 12:53PM
  • speak no ill
    of one who hath just passed on
    to a better place
    for we must think of what good he/she hath done
    in a life of a constant struggle to be human,
    all too human

  • Tribute to the people’s Tiger
  • K Temoc | Apr 17, 2014 11:37AM
  • I saw the Khalsa Warrior saddled up on his white steed
    With steely eyes, a lion’s heart and strong moral kirpa
    And ready to offer for the downtrodden his good deed
    Even if that requires him to ride bravely into Nirvana

  • Amend constitution to resolve jurisdiction conflict
  • Choo Wei Sern (Eric) | Apr 16, 2014 4:43PM
  • The issue of conflict of jurisdiction between the civil courts and the syariah courts has been standing unresolved for many years. The recent case of S Deepa whose child was allegedly abducted by her Muslim convert ex-husband is not the only controversy that revolves around this issue, but yet another case that adds on to the long list of the likes of M Indira Gandhi, S Shamala and R Subashini.

  • Yes, the House IS a suitable place for babies
  • Teo Nie Ching | Apr 16, 2014 2:00PM
  • I brought my babies to Parliament not because I need a creche for my kids there. I have a very capable babysitter. The wives of Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari, and Bukit Mertajam MP Steven Sim, are housewives. So if you ask me, do we really need a creche in Parliament? The answer would be “NO”.

  • Salary cuts for Selangor exco and reps a gimmick
  • Ng Chok Sin | Apr 15, 2014 6:00PM
  • The salary increment and salary cut to be given as a donation to a charity fund by the Selangor exco is nothing but a political gimmick. This is just like a sales tactic used by supermarkets which first mark up prices before giving discounts; the state government, too, is using the donation as an excuse to cover up their dramatic pay hike.

  • Audit Report 2013 details a sorry saga
  • Pushpan Murugiah & Cynthia Gabriel | Apr 15, 2014 4:30PM
  • The burst of concerns to the contents of the 1st series of the Auditor-General’s Report 2013, was not unexpected. It was yet another horrifying round, a sorry saga of mismanagement and unbridled wastage of public funds, of apathy, and more seriously of outright corruption, of Malaysia’s administration.

  • Kudos to JB High Court for contempt of court ruling
  • Transparency International-Malaysia | Apr 15, 2014 4:00PM
  • Transparency International-Malaysia (TI-M) lauds Johor Baru High Court Judicial Commissioner, M Gunalan, for ruling on Thursday April 10 that power utility company Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) and a land surveyor have been found guilty of contempt of court for deliberately suppressing material evidence with the manifest intention of interfering and obstructing the due administration of justice in a squatter land case during a 2011 trial.

  • Next-of-kin must be wary of MH370 scam ring
  • Tay Puay Chuan | Apr 15, 2014 12:46PM
  • Family members of the passengers and crew on board the missing Flight MH370 must be extra-cautious and not fall into the trap of scam syndicates.

  • Fitnah by Old Testament standards is punishable
  • Stranger in the Night | Apr 15, 2014 12:18PM
  • It makes me wonder if the Muslims in this country have become fanatical about almost every and any thing under the sun, with the latest allegation made by the Islamist group Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma) recently accusing a Seremban church of seeking to proselytise to non-Christians by using Bahasa Malaysia for an Easter pageant.

  • A house divided will not stand
  • David Anthony | Apr 11, 2014 1:00PM
  • Custody of a six-year-old child is violently disputed between both parents. This is a tragic trauma that is going to leave a lifelong scar on the psyche of the child. This child will grow up either as a fighter of the system or a total misfit in society. The latter is more likely because society has allowed this dual system to put down its roots and fester within the social fabric of our country that flies the flag of 1Malaysia.

  • Yet another ‘hickory dickory dock’ reality
  • JD Lovrenciear | Apr 11, 2014 12:30PM
  • If you criticised or doubted or even took the trouble to ask enquiring questions about how Malaysia is handling the MH370 crisis, you are immediately warned not to tarnish the government. You are advised to stand united for the nation in these trying endless weeks following the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines 777 aircraft.

  • An earthly beginning
  • Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud | Apr 10, 2014 8:10PM
  • The Bakau programme organised by the NGO Jaring and Impian Malaysia took place in Pontian, Johor, last Saturday. I managed to drag my anti-social younger brother to join in the fun, planting mangrove seedlings in the muddy mangrove site.

  • Gov't must enforce Deepa’s rights, amend laws
  • Yu Ren Chung, WAO | Apr 10, 2014 5:33PM
  • Two days ago, we were elated by the news that S Deepa, a client of Women’s Aid Organisation, was awarded custody of her two children, now aged six and nine, by the High Court.

    Justice was served - or so we thought. Just one day later, things took a turn for the worse.

  • Coroner's Court won't break ‘blue wall of silence’
  • Eric Paulsen | Apr 10, 2014 12:33PM
  • Lawyers for Liberty is surprised at Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nancy Shukri’s sudden announcement of the commencement of the permanent Coroner's Court on April 15, 2014 to replace the present inquest system (New Straits Times, April 3, 2014, ‘Nancy: Coroner's Court starts April 15').
