Interpol Refuse Malaysian Police Request

Image credit:

If you have read my August 07, 2015 post, you will know about the ill-advised supplication by Malaysian police to Interpol to issue an international ‘Red Notice’ alert for the arrest of Clare Rewcastle-Brown, Editor of Sarawak Report. Malaysia’s request was reviewed on August 09 and Interpol turned down the said application.
Not just that but the global police organization published their refusal – a letter dated August 27, 2015 to the London-based NGO Fair Trials International was made public. Interpol do not usually comment on specific cases or individuals.
But in this case – and in the light of the significant press interest in this case – they made an exception. This says a lot about our foolishness. It also tells the world that Malaysian police are trying to victimize Rewcastle-Brown merely to save PM Najib Razak’s hide. Pitiful and pathetic! [Note: I was referring to both Najib and the Malaysian Police].
On Wednesday, I was in KL’s Jalan Imbi to attend the ITC Bintang Toastmsters meeting, where I was a speech evaluator. 

A decent meeting overall.
