Rais wants bloggers monitored, proposes watchdog council

PUTRAJAYA, FRI:Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim today called for the creation of an internal council or mechanism to monitor bloggers.He said that in terms of law, the Sedition Act was sufficient but he was worried about enforcement which was not up to the mark and having such a council would help in enforcement.He said that the arms of the law might not be long enough to reach bloggers outside the country but if the blogger was in the country, something could be done and it was all a question of will.He told reporters this when asked to comment on a blog posting calling on the people to display their unhappiness with what is going on in the government by flying the national flag upside down.He said that rather than resorting to such an act, it would be better for them to express their dissatisfaction through the proper channels like writing articles and to speak out on whom they disliked, what was wrong and what was inappropriate.“Rather than bashing the flag, it’s better for them to take it out on the person concerned or the leaders that they don’t like,” he added.~ (


Those this mean our freedom of speech is 'almost' dead. Every blogger in Malaysia are going to be being monitored, watched & being download to a individual special file so UTK (unit tindakan khas) can march to blogger workplace,college & home & haul them to court or thrown into Kamunting jail under ISA. It'z blogging is going to be extinct soon. Unbelieveable.

lol. i laugh at the face of danger.. LOL. (joking oni ha.) lmao

is the gov really seriously considering to blanket a surveillance on bloggers nationwide? id like to see them do that. =/

how to control cyberspace? ayo. it takes two hands to clap la; they think bloggers so dam free, simply simply like to bombard the gov nia..

but if the gov buck up, runs the country effeciently, it leaves no room for bloggers to bantai them, then blogger will be forces to blog about pretty nice things about rainbows and butterflies..

but until the gov buck up, bloggers will always be there, like it or not.

even this news about blanketing bloggers are being bloged about ady, what more whn it is actually implemented?!

Malaysia Boleh. haha.
