Another political casualty in Malaysia
It is a sad day that we have another case where the ones who expose corruption are punished and the corrupt are still free and flourishing (Tan Sri’s and Datuk Sri’s). News on MP Rafizi Ramli and a bank clerk sentenced for 30 months jail: https://www.nst.com.my/news/crime-courts/2018/02/332922/rafizi-ramli-jailed-30-months-breaching-bafia-nsttv
We lost another good lawmaker in the next General Election as MP Rafizi Ramli is not able to stand for the election when he is in jail.
We would like to plead to those Malaysians who qualify to vote for the next GE14 (going to happen the next few months) to either go home to vote or to cast your vote via postal voting.
See below a sample of postal ballot released by Sinchew Daily:
