malaysiakini Article on the Ending of LAW Reforms

It looks like the Malaysian Cabinet has been affected by termites and in danger of collapse; according to this malaysiakini article on the resignation of the Law Minister Law Minister Zaid 'tenders resignation' .

Zaid was brought into the Cabinet soon after the March elections disaster but he quickly initiated some moves towards judicial reforms. An eminent lawyer, he is against the use of the ISA.

According to the malaysiakini article, Zaid
"felt "very sad that people like Teresa, whom I know personally, can be seen as a threat."

"I can't see how a journalist doing her duty, or even Raja Petra, can be seen as a national threat. If their statements upset certain people, let the police investigate," he said."

So it looks as if the so-called law reforms will not happen under this BN government. After all, no one remembers about the IPCMC now.
We should wish him well as he still has his integrity unlike some in the present Cabinet.
