Throw Section 134 at your own boss, SC told

Conflict of Interest. The SC's use of Section 134 of the Securities Commission Act 1993 to cow practising journalists has now brought focus on the SC itself, in particular its chairman Zarinah Anwar.

Investigative corporate blogger A Voice, who helped expose skeletons and dig out dirt in Sime Darby, IJN, and Labu airport in recent times, has this time trained his sight on the alleged involvement of Zarinah's husband in various companies. The level of involvement itself should have disqualified Zarinah from the top chief regulator position, A Voice argues in Will SC's interrogating goons dare harm "Mrs" Zarinah?

Explosive stuff. I hope you'd understand if I can't allow comments. If you wish to respond to A Voice's posting, you will have to go there.  H e r e, let me provide you the link again so that you can leave comments there if you wish.
The SC must come out and defend itself against these allegations. More importantly, it must resist any temptation, if any, to try and silence the bloggers with its Section 134.
