"Code of ethics for bloggers mooted
Andrew Ong Nov 23, 08 6:47pm
Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar has suggested that a code of ethics be drawn up for bloggers in the country in order to safeguard the nation from racial or religious conflict."
Again...the people,the nation, the country security..... are being used as the main reasons for him to say in a mild tone that" bloggers are also threatening the national security" .It was proven because he already put a blogger- RPK, two months under ISA.
"Speaking at the Bloggers Buff 2008 in PWTC yesterday, Syed Hamid said the code was necessary as some blogs contained libelous and sensitive racial and religious materials. “The Internet is bringing people into the world of written reporting who have had no training; have no one to learn from; no sense of responsibility; and no sense of their place in the reporting ecosystem. “A code of ethics will serve as a guide."
What???? Bloggers need to have code of ethics?Why he said like this? Is it because the mainstream newspapers "sudah tidak laku" that in the end the people had to turn to internet @alternative media to get true stories?
Ho ho ho.....lets throw these questions to our Home Minister....
1- who, on the first place, has no ethic in the world of reporting?
2-who, has no sense of responsiblity in their writing?
3-who has no sense of their place in the reporting ecosystem?
4-who's report contained libelous and sensitive religious ?
5-who are being racist?
"However, he said that he was not suggesting new laws adding that “this country has enough laws”. "
I couldnt believe Hamid Albar dares to mention this phrase because everyone in the country knows , with the ISA, he makes himself God!!!!
My husband is detained under ISA since 18 April 2002 untill now? Why didnt he used other laws to arrest him?Why dont his Ministry charge him to court producing together with the evidence?
