FOR ALL THE SADNESS AND GRIEF that has visited us these past few weeks, especially in the holy month of Ramadhan, we finally have some things to smile about, to make us believe there is hope after all...
For the tireless efforts of Nurin Jazlin's uncle, Jasni Abdul Jalil in his blog, and not forgetting too the roles played by Malaysian uber bloggers like Nuraina Samad, Ahiruddin Atan, Farina, Tembam and others who finally brought Nurin Alert into reality. You can read the Star's report here.
On the local judicial front, my hats off to the Malaysian judiciary after awarding Ex-ISA detainee Abdul Malek Hussin RM2.5mil in a landmark decision. Kudo's to High Court Judge Hishamudin Mohd Yunos for not only dispensing justice but doing the right thing. Read all about it here.
PAC Chairman Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad is still hard at it over the PKFZ RM4.7bil fiasco. This issue was first brought into the limelight by Captain (Rtd) Yusof Ahmad in his blog, The Ancient Mariner. Hopefully the dishonest politicians who squander taxpayers money will eventually be brought to book.
By way things are playing out, there is still hope . . . and my message to the perps who violated our beloved daughter Nurin . . . your days are numbered too!
