It seems that most of Sarawak Lawyers are afraid to show their colours says a political source to audie61. There are all in the profession as a means of making a living and thus do not want to offend or does not want to be seen to represent any political divide.
Apparently this protests ,‘Judicial Independence and Condemn Arson’ smses was circulated widely. However the turnout of Lawyers was not even 1% of the total smses that was sent out. A lot of effort was put in..Hmmm
audie61 met Chong Chieng Jen who was on his rounds meeting the constituents and selling the “Rocket-DAP newsletter” on Saturday and he was very upbeat and enthusiastic about the Monday protests. The turnout must have been a very bad letdown especially when there was so much expectations from the legal fraternity. A source said this to us this morning,”Apparently the remote control did not work as planned. The control switch only managed to get PKR Sarawak Information chief See Chee How and 2 other lady lawyers and two male lawyers from PKR as seen from the pictures in the main stream media.” Isn’t this disappointing..???’ Strange,where are the other DAP lawyers..??
The internet blog Hornbill Unleashed has a full report of this event but the question remains and asked by many,”Whatever happened to all Sarawak Lawyers..?” Too busy making money….if you know what I mean was a remark from one of the coffee shop clienteles in which audie61 and crew had breakfast this morning.
A political watcher said the organisers needs to go back to their drawing boards and retrace where their planning and event management let them down. Is this a clear message to them from the Sarawak legal fraternity..??
TRUTH BE TOLD:- Sarawak lawyers have their own mindset and only if their rice bowls are shaken/overturned they will not/want not to participate in rallies or protests.
