My New Year wish - leave 'Allah' alone
COMMENT Time flies and we are already at the doorstep of 2013. But time has stood still for three long years since Dec 31, 2009 at the gates of justice. It was on that New Year's Eve that the judiciary gave a flicker of hope for fundamental liberties when a landmark judgment ruled in favour of the Herald , the Catholic weekly.
But the attorney-general fought back and appealed against the decision. The Court of Appeal has not set a hearing date nor is it likely to do so with any urgency. Justice obtained in one of His Majesty's courts is denied by another one higher up through undue judicial delays.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
