Khairuddin Abu Hassan's Re-Arrest

Sacked UMNO member Khairuddin Abu Hassan (right), who had lodged multiple reports with foreign authorities to investigate debt-ridden government-owned investor 1MDB, was re-arrested on Wednesday under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act as he was leaving a courtroom at the Jalan Duta court complex after being released from remand.
[Note: He was first arrested last Friday under Section 124C of the Penal Code which deals with activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy].
His re-arrest is now under Sections 124K and 124L of the Penal Code, which deal with sabotage and attempting to sabotage the state respectively.
This is a clear abuse of the law. SOSMA was to deal with terrorism and violence against the state. Why is it being used against a person who is lodging reports on a financial scandal?
It involves PM Najib Razak, that’s why! I guess a desperate Najib in a desperate situation has no option but to employ desperate measures.
On Wednesday, Celtic continued their defense of the Scottish League Cup by comfortably seeing off the doughty challenge of Raith Rovers. The former bossed the game and opened the scoring through Kris Commons in the thirty-second minute and then the second goal came from Stefan Johansen on the counter attack in the eighty-seventh minute.
Liverpool, on the other hand, scraped into the fourth round of the League Cup by beating League Two side Carlisle 3-2 on penalties at Anfield. The Reds had gone in front in the twenty-third minute when Danny Ings headed in Adam Lallana's cross from close range, but Derek Asamoah equalized with a low shot in the thirty-fourth minute.
I had a good laugh and so, I am sharing this with you too!
