In Camera

One would have hoped for better things to come from Chua Soi Lek's confession and apology, but no, its more of the same shenanigans from all and sundry.

Ng Yen Yen would like us to throw away any copies of Chua's sex DVD while Opposition taikoh Lim Kit Siang has castigated deputy prime minister Najib Abdul Razak for asking political leaders to behave and not embarrass the ruling coalition.

Well, at least only Chua's political career was killed outright from this episode, not some Mongolian model. Talk about blowing up an issue.

Enough said.

Interestingly, what happened to Chua Soi Lek, and even D.P. Vijandren or recently the case of the correct! correct! correct! senior lawyer is an interesting twist to the Latin term in camera.

Yes, something that happens in chambers and away from the prying eyes of those not concerned with the matter.

Sorry! That happened but in the modern context of a camera, everyone else gets a peek of it.

What is more interesting is that Chua himself does not feel remorse for what he did, after all if one does get a chance to view the said DVD, one would notice that a laptop is featured prominently suggesting that the couple were watching themselves coupling.

And unknown to them, others were capturing the coupling too.

The crux of the matter is, like in the case of the senior lawyer and even the former deputy speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, that this is an invasion of privacy and the perpetrators caught and brought to justice.

The police would do well to forget regaining the videos of either Chua, Vijandren or even the senior lawyer in the market. Is that as important as ensuring that what happens in camera remains private and not in any camera for public viewing?

We in the Siber Party of Malaysia (M) don't think so. Their indiscretions and lack of remorse show them for what they are but more importantly, privacy has to be maintained and respected. That is our basic right!

Let's not have The Big Brother in the system to keep watch over us or tell us the name of our Supreme Maker!
