VOXPOP 'DSP Jude Pereira should be investigated for any breach of his duty. The authorities must investigate whether there had been tampering with the evidence.'
Court releases written judgment on Sodomy II
Ferdtan: Now the judge had confirmed it - the integrity of the DNA samples had been compromised.
He further added that it is not disputed that a senior police officer, DSP Jude Blacious Pereira, is the person who cut the plastic bag for unnecessary relabelling.
Shouldn't he be punished for the blatant dereliction of duties as he was not supposed to do that?
As a top police officer, he should know it is unacceptable to do what he did - by handling the most crucial samples/evidence not in accordance with the procedure.
The perception is that he has bad/malicious intent. If the IGP (inspector-general of police) wants us to trust the integrity of the police force once more, he needs to take punitive action against his officers.
Nothing less than an expulsion would satisfy and convince the rakyat that the police force is serious in changing for the better.
Wira: In a nutshell, the court finally agreed, after many months of filth and lies in the BN mass media, what we the rakyat already knew - the seminal DNA was planted.
Lim Chong Leong: Here is a situation where the DNA evidence was too good, being in pristine condition even after three days of non-defecation, rendering it suspicious.
It can only mean one thing - that it was planted. This can only call for a full inquiry on the attorney-general and the conduct of the police in the investigation, the false complaint and prosecution.
Monkey Wrench: Sodomy I and II were box office stuff. I think Malaysians will not subscribe to yet another episode. So Sodomy III will fail at the box office because the nation is truly weary - in mind, body and soul.
AnonymousA: Any court would have thrown the case out a long time ago but this is a court under direction, and I think the international pressure was too much given that this was Sodomy, Part II.
How to convict when there was no evidence and holes everywhere. Actually, I want to say to complainant Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, try acting as you are young and good looking. You can earn heaps the right way.
DSP Jude Pereira should be investigated for any breach of his duty. The authorities must investigate whether there had been tampering with the evidence.
DAP claims premeditated plot to smear Guan Eng's wife
Anonymous #16150249: The state assembly should discuss the running of the state and state affairs, it is not a gossip session.
We don't talk/discuss private issues of our colleagues in our work meetings, do we? If you do, then I question your professionalism in executing your work.
Anonymous #19098644: Only the decadent and corrupted MCA and Umno would use such a desperate and low-life approach to slander a woman.
Duyong state assemblyperson Gan Tian Loo, like his boss, the despicable Chua Soi Lek, continues to disgrace the Chinese community.
First they falsely attack Penang CM Lim Guan Eng's son for molesting his classmate which was proven to be a lie, now they attack his wife.
Mushiro: There is no end and limit in the running down of Guan Eng by Umno and MCA. Last year, his son was accused of molesting an American girl he had never seen or met.
No one is saying that Guan Eng is an angel - but he is really good, competent and honest in doing his job.
Penang has definitely progressed for the better in the last four years. If there were any questions on this alleged relationship, then ask Lim directly and in the Penang state assembly.
Why ask his wife in the Malacca assembly. Just imagine if MCA questions Rosmah Mansor about Altantuya Shaariibuu - they will get their marbles crushed.
Don't Play-Play: Gan Tian Loo has a responsibility to ask the questions because it involves an elected Malacca representative accused in the blogosphere of attacking a young woman who works in her husband's office in Penang. Is that wrong?
Loyal Malaysian: Gan is one of those lowly species of politicians willing to do anything to get into the good books of his political masters.
A challenge has been issued. If Gan has any integrity, he will show the rakyat he has the facts to substantiate his allegations.
Abasir: MCA, like its sponsor and patron Umno, is desperate. So desperate that it will do anything to stay in the game.
Its leadership, known for unsavoury behaviour, both in and out of the public sphere, will resort to underhanded tactics to smear, tarnish and blacken the names of any honourable political opponent.
Expect more of the same, maybe worse.
