Malaysiakini: Protesters want MACC probed, 7 arrested



The police this morning dispersed about 300 protesters who gathered outside the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Selangor office in Shah Alam demanding that MACC be investigated for the death of an opposition politician's aide.

As they shouted 'Siasat, siasat, siasat' (investigate, investigate, investigate), top Pakatan Rakyat leaders submitted a protest memorandum to MACC.

At least seven protesters were arrested in the melee. They included Kapar parliamentarian S Manikavasagam and Selangor exco Dr Xavier Jayakumar.

It is sickening to watch this. Clear proof of police brutality in action. There is a better and more civilised way to handle crowd. One does not need to use excessive force to handle or arrest someone who had just lost a friend and obviously in mourn.

The whole World is watching this.

Totally feeling unsafe and feeling like run away. I don't know how to describe it, all i can feel is that, there'll surely a better place than being here.

It seems as though the CIMARRON (Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc) has been around forever! But in truth, it wasn’t until the turn-of-the-century in 2000 that CIMARRON STRIP DVD players had gained a presence in half of the homes in the US.In recent years, the CIMARRON STRIP DVD COLLECTION has definitely earned its place as the archive media standard to which we entrust our most precious recorded memories.
