S.O.S to the Sultan of Perak

Any person who loves this silver state, democracy and the rule of law, must surely be appalled by events that are fast unfolding before our very eyes.

What Perakians want is simply the right to vote in the govt. of their choice. Is this too much to ask? Is this a crime?

Events appear to be rapidly getting out of control. The cat and mouse constitutional game is gambling away the peace and stability of this calm state. Court actions, police actions, partisan govt. officers, threats and other inducements are being used to stifle the voice of the people.

The latest action of sealing off the State Assembly building and actions against the Speaker is raising the temperature.

The only hope is for the Sultan to intervene and get both sides to agree to let the rakyat decide.

Is this asking too much of DYMM Sultan Perak?
