    Don't look for free shirts, lah. The proceeds go to the bloggers and detainees fund, if I am not mistaken. Treat it as a bit of charity.

    Judge ill. Case postponed to 10th - 12th Nov, 08

    Looks like my prediction that the case will be thrown out today did not turn out. The charge is defective. Now the prosecution have one more month to rework their charges.

    Time for Anwar to do his job.

    RPK Sedition trial : Judge ill, case postponed
    October 13, 2008

    Judge Rozina Ayob, who had mentioned last week that she was in fact unwell, was taken ill this morning, resulting in RPK’s trial being postponed.

    For Whom The Bell Tolls

    It tolls for thee.

    For Whom The Bell Tolls
    (By BOB TEOH/ MySinchew) 2008-10-13 14:09

    This morning I arrived at the Petaling Jaya Sessions Court for the RPK
    sedition trial. However, the case was postponed to 11 and 12 November. This
    is my second time there. I was not there to cover his case as a journalist
    but to show my support for RPK, his wife Marina and his family and to stand
    alongside all those who believe in the cause of justice.

    I do not know RPK or Marina personally until some months ago when I met them
    together with three other Christian bloggers for an extended lunch. But this
    much I know about them. They are both truly bold and courageous. RPK cannot
    be half the man he is without the rock solid support that Marina is to him.
    RPK, of course, is blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin.

    There were not many people there 30, maybe 40, maybe 60. The size of the
    crowd did not matter one bit as it was the quality of it that was important.
    All there were true-blue supporters, bloggers, lawyers, activists,
    politicians, home makers, NGO leaders and the like. It was not a crowd but a
    fraternity.

    An editor friend of mine called out to me the moment he spotted me. He was
    also there the last time I was at the court. He had brought along his two
    grown children and introduced them to me.

    "You're in familiar company," I told them, and he smiled, proud to be the
    father inducting his charges to the cause of justice, truth and freedom.

    Others were milling around either selling or buying :I-Am-With- RPK ISA
    tee-shirts. The last time, I saw a foreigner with his little baby buying a
    T-shirt too.

    "I am doing my bit for human rights in Malaysia," he told me.

    It took a little while for RPK to be driven out in a heavily-tinted van. He
    could see us, but all we saw was black-plated windows. I peered into one and
    I saw RPK seated handcuffed in both hands like a dog. What injustice! He has
    already been slapped with criminal defamation charges and presently
    defending himself in a sedition trial for an article allegedly written by
    him about the murder of a Mongolian which implicated many people in high
    places.

    Not happy with that, the Home Ministry has thrown him into the slammer for
    two years (subject to extensions) under the Internal Security Act without
    trial. Now he steps in the boxing ring fighting for his life with both hands
    tied at his back. You call this justice? Bah!

    Why was I there? I am reminded of the book "For Whom The Bell Tolls"written
    Ernest Hemingway in 1941 from his experiences in covering the Spanish Civil
    War as a journalist. Ironically, his book was banned in the U.S. then when
    it was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

    The title was actually taken from a line by the 17th century Welsh
    poet-priest John Donne' s "Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions,
    MeditationXVII" published in 1623:

    "All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one
    chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language;
    and every chapter must be so translated...As therefore the bell that rings
    to a sermon, calls not upon the preacher only, but upon the congregation to
    come: so this bell calls us all: but how much more me, who am brought so
    near the door by this sickness....No man is an island, entire of
    itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind;
    and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for
    thee."

    Despite his great education and poetic talents he lived in poverty for
    several years, relying heavily on wealthy friends. In 1615 he became an
    Anglican priest and, in 1621, was appointed the Dean of St Paul's Cathedral
    in London.

    RPK is no poet nor priest. But when they try to silence him, the peal of
    freedom, of truth, and of justice, begins to fade quickly into the dungeon
    of our collective darkness.

    "Therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."

    My prayer and my hope is with and for RPK and Marina and their family. May
    this be your prayer too.

    10 to 13 more to testify

    Looks like it will dovetail nicely with the UMNO Dec elections. Wonder whether this is a coincidence.

    Ha! Ha! Ha! In UMNOland, nothing is a coincidence. It is part of a series of clumsy moves by the UMNO rats to backstab each other.

    RPK Sedition Trial: 10 to 13 more to testify
    Posted by St Low
    Monday, 13 October 2008 20:46

    The prosecution will be calling 10 to 13 more witnesses to testify when the sedition trial of blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin resumes in November, the sessions court here was told today.

    The trial was to have continued today but was postponed to Nov 10 - 13 because sessions judge Rozina Ayob is on medical leave.

    DPP Ishak Mohd Yusoff told judge Balqis Aini Mohd Ali, who presided over the hearing, the prosecution would continue with the questioning of Supt Gan Tack Guan, who had been called to testify last week.
