The recent amendments in the Evidence Act which basically deem bloggers and victims of hacked facebook account owners as person who posted all comments in their space until proven otherwise is the best proof of Najib’s “the best democracy in the world claim” pudding.

Cyber bullies and stalkers often get away because of lack of evidence
PETALING JAYA: “It wasn't me.” That's the most common response from people when a hate or threatening message is traced to their Facebook or Twitter or any other Internet account.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission says it is almost legally impossible to take action if all that a person has to do is to deny any responsibility.
“Think of the victims. People who have been slandered or whose lives have been threatened,” commission chairman Datuk Mohamed Sharil Mohamed Tarmizi said, adding that many a time cyber bullies and stalkers who often use “the cloak of anonymity” have got away because of lack of evidence.
