Almost a year
Posted on July 7th, 2012 by Lilian • Filed under: Life and rants
I was just going through my old Facebook statuses and realised that my Mac has been taken away for a year now. I have so far made two trips to the police station for questioning.
I have engaged a lawyer to pursue the matter for me. In total, three lawyers have helped me. In a way, I am lucky because they are just a call away.
The last contact I had was in June when the Investigating Officer SMS-ed me that he had completed the investigation papers and had handed them to Putrajaya AG’s Office.
He asked for my Streamyx bill. Which I duly gave. I really have nothing to hide.
Friends told me by now, all my phones and lines would probably be tapped. Which again, I have nothing to fear because I have nothing to hide.
With the election getting close, people are getting more ferocious. So many people that I do not know seem to think that it is ok to hit me personally with all sort of nonsense. More will join in to comment like I have no feelings whatsoever. Several said I probably deserved it, of my Mac being taken away.
The Mac costs only RM3,899. It is no big deal. I can buy a new one anytime I like or need it.
It is the principle. Why would they even take and keep it for so long? Is it that hard to make a decision? Do they want to charge me for ‘inciting Christians’ like the stupid accusation that stupid Tony Yew did? Or are they going to admit that there is really nothing at all?
People like us will always have little avenue to seek justice. People like me will just have to wait.
I could be waiting in fear. Or I could tell them, Go ahead, drag your feet. When I am tired, I will ask another lawyer to write to you.
None of us deserved to be treated like this. So, some of us have to tell them, We will not tolerate this nonsense. We have to speak up, put our feet down and make a change.
“Do not be afraid” – That’s what Jesus told His disciples.
“If you are with Me, who can be against Me?” – The comforting assurance that so long as I keep Jesus in my life, no storm is ever too big for me.
In this one year, my faith has grown even stronger. I am still the ‘stubborn, steadfast Christian’ believing in the Word of God and trusting that all these nonsense from unknown people are just part and parcel of my Christian life. Matthew Chapter 10 says a lot here :
16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
