Police state. Amnesty International Malaysia has issued a statement on the arrest and treatment of Nathaniel Tan by the police. It is concerned, especially, with the cops' "Arrest first, Investigate Later" attitude in this case. AI has urged the Malaysian Government to a Royal Commission's recommendation on this point.You won't find the press statement in any of the mainstream newspapers that represent the press in this country. Go to BlackinKorea's blog for it [Arrest and detention of blogger undermined fundamental rights]."We believe that the police clearly abused the due process of investigation by arbitrarily arresting a person without due reason. The attitude of “arrest first and investigate later” which was highlighted by the Royal Police Commission affects a person’s freedom and rights without a just cause. Furthermore the maximum period remand application made by the police is a strong indicator that the police failed to conduct thorough investigations before the arrest."
The abuse of the due process by the police is one of the issues that bloggers are going to discuss tonight at this forum on police state in the webworld.

By the way, this whole scam is a waste of the police resources. Wouldnt it be better if these resources are utilised to combat the rising crimes in the country.
