"Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said he was shocked at the cruel and inhumane treatment of ah long (loan sharks) on people who failed to pay up their debts.
"He wants the authorities to take action under the law against such merciless loan sharks.
“I also hope that Malaysians are aware of the risk involved and learn a lesson from the reported inhumane acts committed by ah long, that they should never borrow money from ah long,” he said after announcing the official projection of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate, here, today.
In that vein I am certain he too shares the same care and concern over the murder of Shaariibuugiin Altantuyaa by two of the Police DiRaja Malaysia's special branch and ensure that our nation's policemen never carry out inhumane acts on another human being. In case, the Prime Minister forgot the facts of the case, Altantuyaa was treated cruelly and inhumanely when she was shot twice at the side of her left head before being exploded by C4.
We sincerely hope the Prime Minister will advise the Home Ministry to ensure that in future, the Police DiRaja Malaysia's efforts, time and expenses are used to investigate, apprehend and prosecute to conviction offenders like the ah longs instead of going around murdering foreigners or even members of the rakyat like the Altantuyaa case.
Actually Prime Minister, there is nothing shocking about this kind of stories if you lived with the rakyat instead of your palace away from all of us and surround yourself with only the rich and powerful. When you live in the gutter, there's not much to be shocked about except perhaps to be utterly disgusted by the excesses of the Malaysian political and financial elite. But I am certain that will not shock you at all.
