I looked out for Bernama or the other Mainstream media to report this, as surely such a significant statement by Badawi would have been published.
Nothing appeared, so its rather confusing right now whether Dollah did offer an apology.

This entry of Clare Street is actually to make it clear that ACCORDING to Indonesian media, Pak Lah did offer the apology. If Pak Lah has NOT, then he should deny it through the Malaysian media such as Bernama.

its more than apologies. burning question at the back of my mind where's the rule of law and the discipline or lack of it in the police force. not a whisper from the powers that be about this.just imagine you are the poor soul at the receiving end.
