Getting a collectible banknote free in the mail is always a good thing, right? Hell no, not if
it's a Hell note. Here's an article from Malaysia responding to a politician's receipt of a "Hell
note" - pseudo banknotes used in China and elsewhere as gifts for the dead to use in the world
The unscrupulous actions of certain quarters who have threatened MCA Vice-President Dato' Sri Dr
Ng Yen Yen by sending a 'hell note' to her office must be severely condemned as they have started
a bad precedence for the community through their irresponsible actions.
Although it is not clear why the threat was made and it is unsure if the perpetrator was being
manipulated, intimidation is still illegal, and as such, I call on these people to put an end to
such offensive actions.
Sending 'hell notes' could be deemed as a psychological harassment and violence of the lowest
degree which is intolerable.
Such threat is an act of violence which may cause mental distress to the receiver, and will leave
a black mark on our country's political culture.
