印尼新民选总统佐科上任不到两个星期,就传来了印尼警方逮捕沙爹小贩博客的消息,据说,这个落选总统候选人普拉博沃的支持者,掌握了一些修改相片的技术,真的是移花接木,把佐科的人头嵌接在一些猥亵的黄色图片上就发布在自己的脸书上招摇。因此被指控犯有诽谤罪,传播淫秽物品,违反了2008年的色情法,可能面临12年的徒刑。

当时看到这则新闻,不知怎的,突然就很关心佐科是怎样面对这项诽谤的案子。民间有谓:“新官上任三把火”,何况是亿人之上的一国之主。因此,今天在早报《东南亚新闻》里头看到了这个标题:《网上假造佐科色情照被捕 肇祸青年获佐科原谅》,就恨不得先睹为快。

据说慈禧太后曾经说过一句名言,那就是:“宁赠友邦,不予家奴”。13亿中国人能够在网上免费阅读新加坡的报章,而我作为新加坡人,近在咫尺,却只能望联合早报网兴叹 — 难道说,就如慈禧这个祸国殃民的领导人一样,我国的政府,也是一样的把人民当“奴才”吗?

早报既然看不得,那也算了。出奇的是,喜欢转载早报新闻的OMY也看不到这则讯息,我报、msn也讳莫如深。无可奈何之下,只好尝试浏览印尼的报章,最后总算在《Jakarta Post》的报道中读到《Jokowi forgives online troll》这则新闻。

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has forgiven Muhammad Arsyad, a satay vendor who was detained by the police for allegedly defaming him online.

Jokowi said he forgave Arsyad during a meeting with the satay vendor’s parents, Mursidah and Syafrudin, at the State Palace on Saturday.

“I forgive him 100 percent. I forgave him through his parents,” Jokowi told reporters. First Lady Iriana was also present during the 30-minute meeting.

Jokowi added he had asked the police to release Arsyad from detention. “Regarding the legal process, I will check on it again later. But most importantly, I already asked [for the detention to be postponed],” he said.

Jokowi also called on the public to learn from Arsyad’s case and promote decency and respect for others online.

“I ask Arsyad to be careful in his actions,” Jokowi said.

Speaking after the meeting, Mursidah said that Jokowi was not offended by what his son had done. “I was only told to take care of my son,” she said.

In the presence of members of the media, Syafruddin kissed Jokowi’s right hand, a sign of deference in the local culture.

Mursidah also said after the meeting that the First Lady had given her cash in a sealed envelope.

Arsyad was arrested at his parents’ home in Kramat Jati, in East Jakarta, on Oct. 24, based on a report filed in July by Henry Yosodiningrat, an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) lawmaker and a member of the party’s legal team, when Jokowi, then the governor of Jakarta, was engaged in a campaign battle with Gerindra Party chairman Prabowo Subianto.

Arsyad was charged with defamation and spreading pornographic material, a violation of the 2008 Pornography Law, and could face 12 years in prison.

The team reported a Facebook account registered under the name of Arsyad Assegaf that had posted a series of doctored pornographic images with the faces of Jokowi and Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri.

Many have come to Arsyad’s defense, saying that his prosecution would not bode well for freedom of speech under Jokowi’s administration.

Among those who have taken a stand against the arrest is Gerindra politician and deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Fadli Zon.

Fadli accompanied Mursidah to the National Police headquarters on Friday in an effort to bail out Arsyad.

“This is a petty crime. This is criminalization of the wong cilik [common people],” Fadli said, prior to meeting with police investigators handling the case.

The National Police, meanwhile, will announce their decision regarding Arsyad’s release from detention on Monday.

“The police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate [Bareskrim] will make a decision regarding the request for release from detention on Monday,” National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Ronny F. Sompie said.

中国人有句话说,“见贤思齐”,新加坡人不是中国人,当然不必费神思量。就算是李显龙,虽然知道“高处不胜寒”,却不晓得被压在山脚底下,就算是孙悟空也是苦不堪言。因此,就有了鄞义林愿意为诽谤罪认错并赔偿名誉损失5千元被认作侮辱的荒诞奇谈。

我是这么想的,印尼警方逮捕了沙爹小贩博客,做科虽然100%原谅了他。然而,他终究逃不过传播淫秽物品,违反色情法的制裁。李显龙或许会感觉奇怪,佐科这般轻易的放过了沙爹博客,第一夫人竟然还慈祥的给博客的母亲递钱。与此相反,我国的警方完全找不到理由逮捕鄞义林,就算是公积金当局和淡马锡控股,对于鄞义林在博客公布的资料,也不做可否。吊诡的是,竟然是总理以民事诽谤的理由把他告上了法庭。对鄞义林的赔偿不屑一顾不说,竟然还让他失去了工作。

俗语说:“不怕不识货,只怕货比货”。在佐科与李显龙之间,我们看到了两种人格。一种是春风带来的温暖,一种是严寒带来的肃杀。
