Videos, assembly sitting, and censorship

Perak DAP secretary Nga Kor Ming reportedly told the police not to practise double standards when enforcing the law on the video recording pertaining to the May 7 state assembly sitting.

He was commenting on BN Menteri Besar Zambry Abd Kadir’s announcement on Monday that BN would be making video copies of the assembly incident to counter Pakatan’s allegations.

Nga told the police to swiftly seize BN’s audiovisual equipment when they screen the assembly incident to the public in the same way the police took away the video clip of the assembly meeting that was shown by DAP in Sitiwan recently.

In this age of the Internet, transparency, accountability and good governance, one should argue instead for free flow of information so that what is freely shown by the BN should also be liberally screened by the Pakatan coalition, among other stakeholders in the society.

    When we want to watch a recorded video
    Let it not be like riding in a rodeo
    With jumps and humps all over the tape
    Trying to cover up scenes that can’t escape
