Contempt?

Contempt. I know no more than what bro Jeff Ooi has just put up in his blog here. My lawyer is trying to get the papers from the NSTP's lawyers.
I'll try not to think of it. Not today, at least. I want to think of Nurin and what her parents are going through. Please don't leave any comment for this posting. I'll write more when we get more information.
Let's all pray for Nurin, instead.

What the hell is NST trying to do. Instead of doing its level best to improve its circulation and be more transparent in its promotions of staff, it is doing the opposite, trying to deflect from the real situation by pursuing trivial matters. Hishamuddin Aun, be real, man, if you dont know how to do your job, let Rocky do it. You know Rocky is 1000 times better than you. You were up there by default.

Bro, from their sister paper's website also:

Keputusan prosiding NSTP 19 Oktober

KUALA LUMPUR: Mahkamah Tinggi menetapkan 19 Oktober ini bagi keputusan permohonan The New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd (NSTP) dan tiga pegawai kanannya untuk kebenaran meneruskan prosiding menghina mahkamah terhadap penulis laman blog, Ahirudin Attan kerana masih menyiarkan enam artikel di laman blognya yang didakwa mempunyai unsur fitnah.

Hakim Datuk Mohd Hishamuddin Mohd Yunus menetapkan tarikh itu selepas mendengar hujah peguam Rishwant Singh yang mewakili NSTP.

Dalam permohonan sebelah pihak itu, Rishwant berkata, artikel terbaru itu adalah satu pelanggaran aku janji Ahirudin untuk tidak menyiarkan mana-mana artikel yang boleh menyebabkan subjudis terhadap kes saman mereka.

Pada 29 Januari lalu, NSTP dan Ahirudin bersetuju untuk tidak menyiarkan sebarang artikel atau komen berhubung pertelingkahan antara mereka yang boleh dianggap subjudis.

Notis saman pemula yang difailkan NSTP menyatakan Ahirudin menyiarkan enam artikel baru antara 18 Mei dan 8 Julai lalu yang bersifat subjudis.

Artikel itu bertajuk: ‘Wrong info on Kalimullah’, ‘Syed Ahmad Idid on corruption’, ‘Samy does a Brendan Pereira', ‘Kalimullah admit it was incorrect’, ‘Hisham’s K&M’ and ‘Datuk Seri who'.

Pada 4 Januari lalu, NSTP; Timbalan Pengerusinya, Datuk Seri Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan; Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif, Datuk Syed Faisal Albar dan bekas Pengarang Kumpulan New Straits Times (NST), Brendan John a/l John Pereira memfailkan saman terhadap Ahirudin.

Mereka menamakan Ahiruddin, 46, sebagai defendan kerana didakwa memfitnah mereka dalam 48 artikel yang disiarkan dalam laman blognya.

Ini adalah kes pertama penulis laman blog di internet diambil tindakan saman oleh sebuah syarikat penerbitan akhbar di negara ini.

If we all show our displeasure over the way they are behaving and stop buying their newspaper for a week...or maybe a month

Bro,

You request for no comments on this NSTP thingy and yet, left the door open.

So you think we gonna keep quiet huh?

The way it is put to the court, NSTP is insinuating that you're the owner and in complete control of WWU. What evidence have they submitted to substantiate this? Having a link from your blog to WWU is at best tenuous to pursue. A reader may leave a comment with such a link on your blog, hence, does this constitute complicity?

And where's the professionalism in the law fraternity nowadays if an 'ambush' strategy is par for the course.

I guess big bucks and big names gets you priority, even in our courts.

Still walking with you, bro.

Lies hook up what say you
In the corridor of power
The leading players go
Getting hands dirty
Smiling all the way
Of glitters of fame of money

The inner circle parades
Planning the elite members
The tracks cover in slimy road
The fallout on the innocents
Never know what hit them

The law of ethics
The law of God
All washed out to the drain
Lies hook up what say you
On the way out
The fallout dished them good

When the road is divided
When the money trails treat unfairly
Lies hook up what say you
The players in the hook
Know their fate when it is due

Rocky contempt according to the Oxford Dictionary means: Feeling that something is vile or mean!
If that is the case, yes the Prime Minister, also the Home Minister, should be held in contempt for his inability to provide security to the public, he should be held in contempt over many things that he has not been able to deliver as PM!Q By his inaction lives have been lost unnecessarily! The IGP should be held in contempt for instead of catching killers in our midst he is more keen to punish his fellow officers who are getting new wife!
Rocky if you are in contempt then the rest of the decision makers are also in contempt for their failure to be good leaders! In fact the whole system in the country vis-a-vis safety of the people is in contempt!
Don't worry about small threat! Lets pray more for the captive of the killers of Nurin, we have stopped crying by the way!
