Unspun thinks that the Indonesia-Malaysia spat is getting very shrill and both sides need to sit down without their professional politicians involved and sort things out.
What’s intriguing is this morning’s story in The Jakarta Globe quoting National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Iskandar Hasan explaining why three protesters belonging to a group calling themselves Bendera, which threw faces faeces during a protest at the Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta, could not be prosecuted.
If he is right then there is no legal provision whatsoever to charge anyone who throws shit on another person. Unspun’d say that this is great ammunition for protesters who may want to vent their frustrations out at the Police themselves for, say, failure to clean house?
