On The Beat
- Go to
And justice for all
The law serves without fear or favour, and this should not be contradicted.
A painful lesson
THE harsh jail sentence imposed on Sam Ke Ting over a devastating fatal accident nearly five years ago, has generated national debate. In the 3.20am incident on Feb 18, 2017, eight teenagers on modified bicycles (basikal lajak) were killed.
Ahead of the curve
Granted, this is all new turf, but Malaysia could do better in prettying itself up for tourists.
Status quo solution
STILL reeling from the controversy surrounding MySejahtera data protection for contact tracing mobile applications, there have even been calls to discard the system now. Of course, that’s easier said than done.
War front impact
There are circumstances beyond our control at play, but we aren’t helping our cause either.
Pining for a panacea
Although caught in a cycle of rinse and repeat with minimum results, Malaysia still needs to find a way out.
Time for GE15
IF there’s one thing that Malaysia needs to do soon, now that the Johor state election is over, it’s to call for the general election – once the Memorandum of Understanding between the Government and Opposition expires in July.
The woes of war
Geopolitical interests have caused untold suffering in many countries. So, shouldn’t peace get a chance then?
Sex, sleaze and scams
It’s the kind of tale that’s begging for Hollywood’s treatment, even though we’re the losers in the story.
Compass of compassion
Religion shouldn’t be a factor in custody battles for children between couples.
Litmus test beckons
The old routine can no longer be rolled out for a new audience, certainly not in the social media age.
An old controversy gets a new lease on life, mirroring the sign of the times
IT’S ironic that a controversial statement by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, largely forgotten or more precisely, generally unknown to most Malaysians, would get resurrected.
