This morning we received a phone call from Puan Suharni binti Othman of SPR that the entire SPR elections officers would be in Sarawak and that they would not be able to send their Tuan Haji Abdul Halim bin Ab Rahman or any other Elections Officer to the HRP HQ Kursus Pilihanraya (elections course) on 10/4/11 as per the SPRs’ earlier letter of confirmation dated 28/3/2011. (see below).
P. Uthayakumar asked why so and not even one out of the hundreds of Election Officers and especially with the tens of millions of Ringgit Malaysia annual budget for SPR vis a vis Democracy.
Puan Suharni repeated that all the officers would be in Sarawak she said that she would confer with the SPR Secretary Datuk Kamaruddin Mohamed Baria and revert to us. P. Uthayakumar replied that the HRP motto was “Rights not Mercy” and would therefore not beg and would leave it to SPR.
We were not surprised when at about 5.00p.m this evening we received the SPR letter (see below) that none of their officers would come to the HRP HQ Kursus Pilihanraya. This is not the first time something like this is happening.
Some months ago the National registration Department similarly backtracked from attending the Identity Card & Birth Certificate registration programme at the HRP Penang HQ on UMNOs’ similar instructions, after reading the news of the same at this our HRP website.
And it is this very same Kamaruddin Baria, who was the then Secretary of the so called ‘independent” Malaysian Human Rights Commission of Malay-sia (Suhakam) which refused to hold an Inquiry into the UMNO state sponsored Kampong Medan racial attacks targeted against the Indian poor from 8/3/01 to 21/3/01 where five Indian poor were murdered and 100 over others were caused grievous bodily injuries.
Thereafter we had refused to recognize or deal with Suhakam ever again right up to this date.
And today history repeats itself under this very same racist UMNO regime’s “independent” SPR.
Rights not Mercy.
