I say it again, Perak is a siege on Democracy

The case in Perak is a siege on Democracy and Rule of Law in Malaysia.
What more with HRH Sultan Azlan Shah in the thick of it all.

For the posterity's sake, I will have to repeat what Malik Imtiaz has written so eloquently on his blog, Perak, A Constitutional Crisis

the Perak Constitution does not empower His Highness to dismiss the Mentri Besar. The manner in which the Mentri Besar is to be removed from office is as provided for under Article 16(6), through a refusal to dissolve the Assembly at the request of the Mentri Besar when the Mentri Besar has ceased to command the confidence of the majority of the Assembly.

Word on the street was that some money, and I mean some REAL money changed hands.
An amount that's even too obscene to even mention.
One day, one day this will see the light of day.
