BN 'detrimental to peace and security'

ULU KANOWIT (Thursday, October 16, 2008): Sarawak Headhunter today declared the Barisan Nasional (BN) an illegal organisation. In a statement to Cyber Jungle News today, Sarawak Headhunter said that the facts and evidence showed that the government was, and is, being used by the BN in a manner detrimental to public order and national security.

Labelled a threat to national security, the BN has been banned by Sarawak Headhunter, Home Minister of the pro-tem government of the Republic of Sarawak (ROS).

Sarawak Headhunter yesterday issued a statement declaring BN, which has been advocating racial and racist agendas since its inception, an illegal organisation. The declaration, he said, was a result of monitoring and investigations by the ROS going back to the formation of BN.

"As a result of the investigations, the Home Ministry, as per its authority under sections 35 and 55 of the People's Government Reform Act 2008, has declared BN unlawful and detrimental to peace, public order, political, economic and social security and the moral values of Malaysia," he said in the statement.

"I feel that if we don't rein in their activities, they will continue to jeopardise security and public order, and our country's sovereignty, as well as upset the harmony among races."

Sarawak Headhunter said the decision to ban the movement was not made based on only one or two misdemeanours committed by BN, but covered the entire gamut of activities the group had been involved since its organisation.

"These included subversion of the economic policies of the government, thereby causing losses of hundreds of billions of ringgit, economic injustice and instability, subversion of the judiciary, large-scale electoral fraud, including but not limited to vote-buying and ballot-box tampering, gerrymandering and general abuse and manipulation of electoral, legislative and administrative process, corruption, favouritism, nepotism, cronyism, abuse of power and position, misuse of government machinery, abuse of the law, waste, mismanagement, misallocation or wrongful allocation of resources, racial and racist agendas and policies, exclusion and marginalization of entire communities, discrimination, improper control and manipulation of the mass media, registration of illegal immigrants as citizens, coercion, pressure, force, threat and intimidation of the public through illegal police action, terrorism and gangsterism, conflicts of interest, breaches of trust and much more."

"They exploited all manner of racial issues to remain in power and which caused an uprising by the people and created hatred between them and all races."

He added that BN had tried all ways and means, illegal, dirty and underhanded, to support their attempts to get the people to bow to their demands, actions which have tarnished the country's image.

"Considering all the facts and evidence we have, I am satisfied that BN was and is being used in a manner detrimental to public order and national security and the well-being of the nation."

"We advise the public not to involve themselves in any way with the activities of this unlawful organization."
