Teresa now being released

At 12.56 pm, at lunch in Ipoh, my mobile phone rang. I saw the caller was “Teresa” and wondered who was using her phone.

But it was her on the line and wondered how she wangled the use of her phone while in detention.

But no, she did no such improper thing. She told me that she was being released.

Bravo. The irresistible pressures against her unjust and undemocratic detention had succeeded.

While in celebratory and jubilant mood, we must also be mindful that the recent spate of ISA arrests demonstrate that this iniquitous law must go.

Sin Chew reporter Tan Hoon Cheng’s 18-hour ISA detention and Teresa’s 6-day detention are testimony.

Now, only RPK is still in detention from the recent spate of ISA arrests. He should be released immediately too.

The Hindraf Five and all other ISA detainees should also be given back their personal liberties and released from Kamunting Detention Centre.

Leaving Ipoh now for Teresa’s media conference at DAP PJ Hqrs at 3.30 pm.

    Teresa I support You!!!

  2. #2 by Joetan on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:27 pm

    Syabas ! But the abuse of ISA by the government still have to be condemned. The anger of the RAKYAT towards the government for abusing ISA on innocent people subside.

  3. #3 by Jamesy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:28 pm

    Release all ISA detainees now!

    Abolish ISA now!


  4. #4 by Joetan on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:29 pm

    Typo error. The anger of the RAKYAT towards the government for abusing ISA on innocent people has still not subside.

  5. #5 by N. Kiru on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:30 pm

    Well Kit Siang, for all what you have done since her detention and for your tremendous display of genuine support for Theresa, I salute you.
    With the rest of the Malaysians and most notably Zaid, who deplore what happen to Theresa, let us not forget the paramount need to repeal this obnoxious piece of legislation.

  6. #6 by twistedmind on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:30 pm

    If it is true, then PDRM and Syed Hamid has a BIG HUGE APOLOGY to make to ALL MALAYSIANS and in particular, St. Teresa!

    Also, when is the Indonesian ex-Chief Minister, Khir Toyo going in under ISA? Will his counterparts in Utusan Malaysia join him?

    Why talk about the RACE RELATIONS ACT, if nobody is willing to ACT!?

  7. #7 by yhsiew on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:32 pm

    I suggest Teresa Kok claim compensation for her unlawful detention from the government.

  8. #8 by Godfather on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:35 pm

    Folks, you all got it wrong. It was all for Teresa’s protection. The government, with its efficient investigative organs, have neutralised all those who sought to harm Teresa, and now she can be freed to live in peace.

    Give some credit to the BN administration. They managed to neutralise Teresa’s enemies in 6 days.

  9. #9 by budak on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:38 pm

    satu lagi projek yang dimenangi oleh RAKYAT Malaysia… :-)

    since Teresa & Tan cells are empty now, it’s good to enroll Toyol & Ahmad Said as govt. need to fully utilize these cells… :-)

    BTW, when are we (RAKYAT) expect DSAI to announce Kerajaan Pakatan RAKYAT…

    Thank you to all Malaysian for your effort to bring Teresa out from the UMNO-BN hell cell…

    I wish to see RPK & Hindraf-5 to be out too… :-)

  10. #10 by melurian on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:38 pm

    guess that aab and the botak really flip flop after all. why can’t they be stern to their actions …..

  11. #11 by pakmang on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:38 pm

    Bravo, I support Teresa to take up legal actions to sue and claim from respective parties for being caused to her unlawful detention by the government.

  12. #12 by vchi on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:39 pm

    Bravo! Now for the others!

  13. #13 by Joetan on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:40 pm

    RACE RELATIONS ACT is only for the rakyat who oppose the government and also for the opposition parties leaders. UMNOputras are above the law and they also enjoyed impunity in this UMNO ruled country. Ahmad Ismail is a fine example.

  14. #14 by bentoh on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:45 pm

    YB Kit,

    Drive carefully… ;)

  15. #15 by pulau_sibu on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:45 pm

    What a joke of ISA. The regime could not sustain the pressure from the public and international community.

  16. #16 by oknyua on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:46 pm

    More to the point: The Deputy IGP and Home Minister who ordered her arrest – arrest them instead.

  17. #17 by AhPek on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:46 pm

    Terrific, that’s great news but we’ve also to get RPK and Hindraf out as well.

  18. #18 by collin1202 on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:46 pm

    As Singaporean, I feel the injustice inflicted on her under the guise of ISA and I now take comfort that she is finally released. Cheers.

  19. #19 by Thinking Two on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:51 pm

    Welcome back Teresa Kok!!!!

    This will make you much more stronger!!!!

    The whole rakyat is with you.

  20. #20 by wahai kawan on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:52 pm

    Wah! It finally paid off after all that has been done. Congratulation to you and the rest of the team. May this be the first of all cause worth fighting for…..

    Our mental is a celebration. Not easy as we all are incarcerated in our own way of thinking the existing rule of the jungle

    Ini malam sudah boleh celebrate minum 2 Or Kau. Guinness stout is good for you.

    God bless

  21. #21 by melurian on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:52 pm

    the deputy igp and botak should resign for the error they have commited. how could they be flipflop like this, waste time, money and effort (and petrol money too fetching them). in japan they’d have commited sepukku …

    resign! resign! resign!

  22. #22 by kanthanboy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:53 pm

    Teresa, you are a true Malaysian daughter. We love you. Continue to fight for the release of all ISA detainees. Fight to abolsih ISA.

  23. #23 by CSKUEH on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:53 pm

    At long last, thanks God, freedom for Teresa. What a relief!

  24. #24 by yhsiew on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:55 pm

    Yippee! Yippee! Teresa Kok is back with us again!

    I am too happy to believe it. Look forward to see her speak in parliament.

  25. #25 by homeblogger on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:55 pm

    Teresa… when I read about how you had to stay in an 8′ by 8′ cell, I shuddered. I can’t imagine how I would take being forcefully separated from my family. I would die thinking of my kids missing me and not being able to see me.

    My heart is filled with joy for you.

    The ISA must be stopped.

  26. #26 by melurian on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:56 pm

    tdm is much better, when he said “off to isa”, that means you really off to kamunting, no flip flop decision like this. that aab is so unfit. the whole cabinet must be out – the country now is in serious time (oil price naik, rice naik, lehman tutup) we don need flip flop ministers who can’t even hold firm to their decision. today they made this decision, tomorrow they rescind it, this is very very terrible…..

  27. #27 by lofuji on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:56 pm

    YB Kit Siang,
    This in indeed fantaaaaaaaaaaaaaaastic news. Teresa,you are one hell of a lady!So the efforts by all concerned were not in vain.Dont stop there.We should now concentrate on the release of RPK,the icon of Msian bloggers.Let the BN gomen know that the peace loving people of Bolehland shall not be cowed by repressive laws.
    Btw, the empty cells should now be reserved for botox toyol and botak syed.They had it coming.

  28. #28 by just a moment on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:56 pm

    yes yes yes!! helleluiah! Thank God

    Teresa Kok released from ISA detention !!!
    Good news indeed. Teresa, you’ve beat the ‘devil’
    Welcome back.

  29. #29 by oknyua on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 1:56 pm

    Teresa, do not withdraw your case against Utusan and Mr Broom.

  30. #30 by Godfather on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:00 pm

    Releasing RPK would be more difficult. RPK has many more enemies compared to Teresa, so the investigations into who is threatening RPK’s safety will have to go on much much longer.

    My bisnes partner Kasim Amat is trying very hard to help into the police investigations on those who are known to be RPK’s enemies. That’s why he has no time to write to us.

  31. #31 by just a moment on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:01 pm

    Now, just wait and see what’s going to happen to her case with her accuser. God Would not be mock!! Justice.

    Dear YB Lim and YB Teresa

    Wonderful news!

    YB Teresa: keep up the good work (as an MP, ADUN etc)!


    Phua Kai Lit

  34. #34 by strupper2003 on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:05 pm

    Yb Lim,

    While glad Theresa Kok is released from ISA, we must not forget why she was arrested in the first place – the lies perpetuate by Khir Toyo(L) and Utusan.

    MB Kok,
    Go ahead and sue Khir Toyo(L) and Utusan for every ill-gotten ringgit they have.

  35. #35 by Ken G on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:06 pm

    Hurray for Teresa’s release! All the pressure has worked.

    What has the regime achieved from the ISA detention of Tan and Teresa? Domestic and international condemnation. Anger and disgust of the rakyat. A Minister has resigned. Their allies MCA and Gerakan have been weakened, if not castrated. Political instability, investors flight and stock market down.

    What have they gained? A big fat zero!

    Lost a lot. Gained nothing. Is this how they run the govt?

  36. #36 by lakshy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:07 pm


    ISA must go, but maybe not just yet. Let the rakyat put a few of the bn guys behind bars under ISA for a few years so that we will have members from both sides in favour of abolishing such laws.

    Otherwise, it could be abused again.

    The detention of RPK and Hindraf5 as well as many others are a travesty of justice. Who is going to pay for this?

  37. #37 by lovepeace on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:08 pm

    happy for her. may god bless you teresa…….let your service for rakyat will be just like mother theresa………

  38. #38 by ALLAN THAM on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:10 pm

    Thank God for that but this should never happen in the first place.

    Now one more to go. May all of us pray Raja Petra will be release immediately.

    Please remember that at far at the law is still there we have lot of work to done. We all should work together to get this law abolish once and for all. We are all peace loving and I believe all human being are peace loving and we should respect each other and love each other no matter what is the differences in opinion are.

  39. #39 by newchief on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:12 pm

    why make more enemies uncle lim????? i think u bark and bite the wrong tree this time by demanding an apolgy from mca!!! from what i understand, mca did raise for release unlike lpd or pbs of sabah or the non-component of sarawak!!!

    i think lim should have say ‘BIG THANK YOU’ to all who had voiced for their release. as you know, in umno meeting, nobody especially from the non-component parties ARE ALLOWED to speak/voice/comment especially under the tyrant’s rule. so i don’t blame mca at all!!! on the contrary, i find it amusing and with delight that mca ,gerakan and zaid ibrahim did lent their voice to especially kok the opposition party!!

    thus i think dap shouldn’t be ‘tai ko’ for the chinese or any races but be modest and kind especially if want to woo the trust and help from the opponents. know thy enemies weakness and favors to win the battle!!! understand???

  40. #40 by ktteokt on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:12 pm

    Let justice prevail!

  41. #41 by oknyua on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:13 pm

    In the good book, (Esther), the accuser was hanged. He was hanged upon the pillar and with the ropes he prepared for the righteous. May this be true to the evils of this land. Remember the words of her priest.

    And the accusers of RPK will also meet with the same fate. When a gov’t turns against its own people, it marks the end of the gov’t.

  42. #42 by lakshy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:14 pm

    YB Teresa should so the pants off Toyol and make sure he becomes a bankrupt and cannot re-enter politics.

  43. #43 by penang308 on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:14 pm

    Welcome home Teresa!

    May you be Well and Happy.

  44. #44 by Emily Pratt on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:15 pm

    Dear YB Kit,

    Please ensure that “Botak Clown” Hamid is sued till his pants drop, RM 100Million for illegal detention and male fide arrest.

  45. #45 by lakshy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:15 pm

    …should sue….

  46. #46 by Emily Pratt on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:15 pm

    Welcome Back Theresa, you were missed.

  47. #47 by Ken G on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:16 pm

    Getting RPK’s release will be more difficult than Teresa. The reason is not that he has more enemies but he has less public sympathy. He’s a man for a start (women victims always gets more sympathy). But essentially, he went and twist the Lion’s tail knowing what he was doing. He was warned but twisted it some more. In contrast, Teresa did nothing to invite harsh measure.

    I’m not saying RPK deserves it. Nobody deserves ISA no matter what he has done. But we should not delude ourselves that we live in a real democracy where peaceful dissent is tolerated. If we are brave enough to do it, we should be brave enough to take the consequences.

    I knew that Teresa would be released soon as the political cost of holding her is just too high. As for RPK we should keep on the pressure. As I see it, the earliest hope for his release may be the expiration of the 60 days detention period, and that is only a hope.

  48. #48 by chinymin on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:17 pm

    YB LKS,
    “Bravo. The irresistible pressures for her unjust and undemocratic detention had succeeded”

    Bravo! YB, you are a Hero again here that in your vehement and persistent calling and propaganda for her wrongful and unjust arrest have resulted in her early release. This is another one fine example of your dynamic leadership for our Malaysian Democracy and Freedom.
    Three cheers to all,
    and Good blessed.

  49. #49 by taiking on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:18 pm

    Released after 6 days!!! That means 5 days, 23 hours and 59 minutes too late. They should not have wasted more than a minute to dismiss the need to arrest and detain teresa. It was that obvious.

    Now that she is again back in contact with fresh air and I say: “Have some rest and decent home food. Welcome back. You know who is behind you all these while.”

  50. #50 by sheriff singh on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:20 pm

    Thank you Syed Hamid and BN government for “protecting” her for one week.

    Now that she’s free, is her safety “at risk”?

    Now go after Toyo, Utusan and that no-gooder MCA fellow, give it to them kow-kow.

    Welcome out, Teresa. God bless.

  51. #51 by Emily Pratt on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:22 pm

    Theresa’s harbeus corpus hearing is to be held on 23-Sep-2008 (next tuesday) and they release her before that.

    They know they have no legal grounds to hold her and the court would have have ruled in Theresa’s favour anyway.

    In order for the Home Minister not to look too stupid, they better release her.

    However, no matter what the Botak Clown Minister do or say, he will infamously look stupid in the eyes on Malaysian Public for perpetuity.

  52. #52 by BNgetOUT on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:23 pm

    Badawi & Syed Hamid,

    Not good enough! Release RPK, Hindraf 5 and ALL ISA detainees now!

    Suara rakyat, suara keramat

  53. #53 by michael13 on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:28 pm

    When we act, God manifest. Teresa, the whole world is proud of you. You have the courage to do the right things. Shame on those who did unjustice on you.

    No less appreciation goes to PR as well.

  56. #56 by yhsiew on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:31 pm

    I really admire Teresa Kok’s courage. Hours before she was arrested, she was informed by people that the police would detain her under ISA. Yet, she did not go into hiding and said she had nothing to fear since she had done no wrong.

  57. #57 by alancheah on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:31 pm

    I am so happy now. God Bless Teresa Kok and this country!

    What a feeling after a week of gloom !

    Welcome home Teresa, welcome home.

    Now we have to get RPK and the rest out asap !!!!


  60. #60 by gofortruth on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:39 pm

    Hallelujah! Glory be to God our rock & our fortress!
    All the more we NOW demand immediate release of all the other detainees & abolish this STUPID ISA, if they have done any wrong then just take them to court.

    My heart aches to see our Malay friends like YM Raja Petra and our Indian Hindraf friends still suffering unjustly under a barbaric BN government.

    If these Hindraf leaders have any link with terrosit groups as WRONGFULLY accused by Syed Hamid, do you think it can still be so calm & peaceful for Malaysia for almost a year after their leaders’ ISA arrest?????????? Syed Hamid, please use some common sense, you don’t need super police intelligence & observation.

    MCA & Gerakan, you have proven again & again that you are nothing but a group of opportunists going after your own personal wealth rather than the welfare of the rakyat. Big shame on you!

    For now its BRAVO to YB Teresa KOK!!! Praise God!

  61. #61 by boleh-an on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:40 pm

    Godfather Says “Give some credit to the BN administration. They managed to neutralise Teresa’s enemies in 6 days.”

    Oh then Teresa should thank the government, maybe she should also expect to receive a bill for protection services and room & board charges.

    AAB had to wait for the UMNO MT meeting to be over before he even dared to agree to doing the right thing. AAB has no political courage at all, and he might as well leave before 9 October 2008 when UMNO Divisional meetings begin.

    It was reported that at the UMNO MT meeting yesterday five MT members, including Muhyiddin and Rafidah Aziz urged AAB to reconsider himself, meaning that he should step down early, before 2010; some suggested before 9 October 2008. It was only after Najib intervened to say that he would have detailed discussion with AAB that the urging process stopped. It is most amusing that the direct beneficiary is Najib who, once taking over the position, would be the new emperor. Why did others show their exceptional keen interest to have Najib ascend the throne, and offended AAB for no direct benefit in return? It is not as though Najib would appoint Rafidah to the Cabinet, since she too has stated her own transition plan, and might have to follow the out-going presidents lead for an earlier exit.

    Muhyiddin certainly hoped that Najib might reward him with the position of deputy, if the latter was willing to forgo the transfer of the position of the deputy to within his family. Muhyiddin is betting that he would be the deputy come December, either to Ku Li, or to Najib. He is more certain of the position if Ku Li ascends the throne, rather than Najib who had an obligation that charity begins within the extended family. That could be the reason why Muhyiddin had arranged for TDM to apply for entry into UMNO.

    TDM had never said that he had changed his mind in conditioning his reentry to AAB’s removal as President. In showing his preference to TDM, Muhyiddin implies that AAB should go. The urging that AAB leave soon has to be timed so that TDM is seen not to retract his statement, so that he can hold his head high as in-coming Chairman of a presidential council for UMNO. That might allow Ku Li a chance of getting enough nomination to stand. However if Anwar was able to show that he had the support of the majority of the House, and that AAB made a slip in dissolving the parliament, then the next general election would be held before December party election. Under the circumstance, would a outgoing president or the sitting deputy president get to decide the next BN election? It is unlikely, so it would be a collective leadership under Chairman TDM. If TDM wins, now that ISA machinery is running smooth with the recent practices, he can be the next PM. He will then appoint his successor. Who do you think he will be Najib, Ku Li, Khairy, Muhyiddin or Mukriz Mahathir?

    When that comes through AAB will have to weep in silence. He would regret for making the greatest mistake in life, forever.

    Anwar has not caused AAB his position as PM. They are the members of his own party starting with all the heroes competing to be saviour of the race and religion, and who wantonly showed that they wanted to bully the other communities, just to act sombong. There are others who even before the March election has created the foundation for UMNO to defect from UMNO, urging them to vote for the persons, rather than the party they were able to call for AAB’s removal. The UMNO policy at government malfeasance would have the same outcome no matter who sits as head of the party.

    Anwar has not contemptuously asked AAB you to leave the position, like the members of MT. He sent AAB a letter asking for his agreement to meet. Anwar now follows up asking for him to convene parliament. In open meeting AAB might not have the choice to resign so that the government could change hand smoothly. So, while AAB still has time, until the UMNO Divisional meeting bringing him news that he was not nominated as president, he can still demonstrate that he is a gentleman doing the honorable act as a statesman to leave the position when he ought to step down. He should meet Anwar.

  68. #68 by gofortruth on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:49 pm

    Malaysians of Malay origin PAS & PKR even UMNO Zaid Ibrahim have come forth and fought hard for the release of a Malaysian of Chinese origin Teresa Kok.

    Now we the Malaysians of Chinese origin should do no less to give the loudest support to break the teeth of ISA and press for the freedom of all other ISA detainees.

    Together we can do it!

  69. #69 by Elwin Heng on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:49 pm

    Great! Excellent!
    Glad to have MP Teresa Kok back!

    – will anyone be the next target, selected to be innocent?
    – when will the latest act be approve, Religion Relationship Act?
    – why must so plenty of complicate and ‘unwelcome’ acts in M’sia? isn’t it benefit to rakyat, or just politic interest (needs)?

    Stability, warmest, harmony, I want that!

    Warmest regards.

  70. #70 by wanderer on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:51 pm

    Now Teresa is released. The matter should no end here. The false accusers, should be brought to book and sue the daylight out of them.
    YB. get DAP to lead the charge, no decent human being should be put to this sort of suffering. HM Hamid, should be put on notice that he cannot fool with human’s sufferings just for political motives. War criminals can be put on trial, so can political criminals.

  71. #71 by oknyua on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:53 pm

    “Looks like ISA is an UMNO toy to throw and catch as it likes. Makes the government and the police real stupid.” Mr Smith

    A glimpse of that from Zaid Ibrahim’s reason for stepping down and he named the strongest resistent for change. And Zaid said the word “biggot,” maybe directed at her. Remove ISA, UMNO will tumble.

  72. #72 by Anti-Monarchy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:53 pm

    This only proves that the ‘rakyat’ still have the power. It also proves that no matter how dominant the ruling government is, it is still answerable to the the ‘rakyat’!

    We just passed the first hurdle, slowly but surely. The same ISA should be used to get Syed Hamid and Khir Toyo to face the music.

    Syed Hamid is a trained lawyer (having his own law practice) but what a disgrace he is to the legal profession.

    We have just won the battle, the war is yet to be won.

    Slowly but surely!

  73. #73 by concerned_citizen on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:53 pm

    Hi YB Teresa Kok, after the press conference, go home and get some good rest and good food. The country is at stake now and we the rakyat need you and all RighFul MPs to save her.

  74. #74 by Thinking Two on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:54 pm

    Simply detained Sing Chew’s reporter for reporting the TRUTH.
    Simply relied on unreliable sources for detaining innosence people.

    Keep saying “don’t listen to rumours” but looks who is acted on rumours.

    With the 8×8 cell being vacant, who should be the NEXT!!!!

  75. #75 by comingto50 on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 2:55 pm

    Teresa, take some good rest and nourish yourself well.
    After that, get the lawyers and start suing them for mega-million RM. It’s rightfully yours. Forgiving does not mean no compensations.

    Salam Sejahtera,

    Tahniah atas pembebasan YB Teresa Kok. Bagaimana dengan perjuangan membebaskan RPK dan juga tahanan lain yang merengkok hampir enam tahun. Jikalau mereka dibebaskan maka DAP akan terus menjdi Hero Malaysia bukan hanya untuk Bangsa Cina tetapi untuk Bangsa Malaysia khususnya Bangsa Melayu yang fobia dengan DAP. Teruskan perjuangan membebaskan tahanan yang dikatakan menyokong Jemaah Islamiah dan sebagainya. Jika mereka bersalah bicarakan di mahkamah. Jangan pula nanti DAP kata mereka ini extremis tak perlu dibebaskan. Tetapkan perjuangan, jangan habiskan disini sebaik sahaja YB teresa dibebaskan.

    Uncle Lim,

    I applaud you, RPK and Teresa for the cause of democracy and justice in our country. Many said that yes BN/UMNO is incompetent and corrupt but is DSAI the answer to problems we face in our beloved country?

    DSAI can promise many things now in exchange for the support of the rakyat and premiership. Most will say, “Aiya what other choice we have?? It is our only hope lerrr!”.

    I say, no worries! DSAI will be surrounded by intelligent, honest and hardworking ppl like LKS, Teresa Kok, Tony Pua etc. to run the country in a proper, fair and legal way upholding the rakyat’s interest.

    My support is on you Uncle Lim and Co.!!! Do the Malaysian chinese proud and prove that we are a race that tolerates no nonsense, hardworking, honest and fair to all other races!!!

    It is clear now the ISA arrests were deliberately made by a ‘powerful body’ within UMNO to make Abdullah look stupid, unpopular and disliked by the people.
    That’s how they cornered him at the Supreme Council meeting to bring forward his retirement.

But i am not; i am completely sober and awake. A female non muslim becomes the Prime Minister of a muslim majority country – this is what colour/gender blind is all about.

    What?? More talking between badawi and najib? What for? Switch things around again? Perhaps they could try a merger like so: Badawi finance min 1, najib finance min 2; and, najib defence min 1, badawi defence min 2; and badawi pm 1, and najib pm 2.

    Since both of them are decendants of pendatangs-penumpangs, they can very well share-share. Its all same-same. No win no lose.

    With the Race Relations Act having been given the nod, it will serve as a more appropriate tool to deal security issues.

    RPK should not be released because his interment was due to the disparaging of religion. Even now, under an article entitled “Spitting in the wind”, RPK has again displayed sheer ignorance of the faith he claims to profess. Approx 70% of the info he attempted to give to the readers was wholly incorrect and without basis. I believe calling RPK a “deviant or a blasphemous Muslim of the worst kind” (as was done by syed) rises from the fact that he is very unlearned and ignorant about Islam and therefore he makes statements that are construed to be blasphemous but perhaps without intent for them to be so.

    RPK is an example of an individual who seeks infamy through wrong means. He may hold deviant beliefs and espouse blasphemy, but he is not of the worst kind because he has no real grasp of Islamic history or indeed Islamic creed and principles of jurisprudence. Therefore his excuse of ignorance should hold water. We should note that his statements may be hasty and ill-advised but this excuse pardons him from being a blasphemous Muslim of the “worst kind”.

He is a Minister of Law but does not understand the Law. UMNO does not need him if he is so afraid of using ISA. One must understand that ISA is by no mean a crime by itself and the key is how you use it. The government has used it at the appropriate time to remove threats and prevent further social disability.”

  113. #113 by Jeffrey on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 4:22 pm

    The ISA is a draconian instrument that curtails and violates all fundamantal rights. Necessarily its use – if such legislation were not repealed – should be sparing and only under the most convincing circumstances of credible proof that the persons detained are justifiably detained.

    The ISA detentions of Reporter Tan Hoon Cheng and MP Theresa Kok show an almost cavalier attitude on the part of those who invoke ISA to the need for credible proof.

    Theresa was detained for 6 days, reporter Tan, after detention of 16 hours, in each case, police explained that there was no reason to detain the further. Was there a reason to detain them in the first place? Upon release Tan told reporters ‘I still don’t know why I was detained under ISA,’ raising questions whether the police knew so or merely just took the line to arrest first at the first complaint by certain groups and investigate later rather than investigate first, and if there were credible evidence and reasonble suspicion of threat, arrest thereafter.

    This is one of Datuk Zaid’s complaint of how authorities misuse the ISA by putting cart before the horse and using it as an instrument for investigation!

    Is this misconceived way of invoking the draconian ISA due to police operating outside oversight of the Home Minister or the Home Minister does not understand how ISA is supposed to work or both ?

    One thing is certain is that the ISA is not intended, as Home Minister alleged, to extend protection to the detainees from attacks of those rightly coming under the fit and proper category of within contemplation of the ISA but who nevertheless not detained in travesty of justice.

  120. #120 by Jeffrey on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 4:47 pm

    Both detainees – Tan Hoon Cheng and MP Theresa Kok- say (after release) they still don’t know why they were arrested under the ISA in the first place.

    Who makes this kind of decision of arbitrary arrest under ISA?

    Whoever, he is no respecter of citizen’s civil liberties or human rights and certianly has no understanding of the philosophy and application of preventive detention laws like the ISA.

    Judging from the criticisms by Barian National’s own MPs and Ministers of the ISA dragnet, it was not even a decision of the government as a whole.

    So who is the Cowboy making such decision? Such abuses will recur if we don’t find out who is the Cowboy directly accountable for making such arbitrary decisions.

  129. #129 by clear conscience mirror on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 5:18 pm

    Looking at the 3 questions Teresa was questioned about by the police intelligence unit is disgusting to confirm the motive behind her ISA. It is either “politically motivated” for the police to act or it goes to tell the entire world that there is lacking professionalism in the way the intelligence is being carried out. All such questions could have been asked if the police bothers to call Teresa to the police station; but instead resorting to the ISA to detain just to ask these 3 questions is laughing stock of our police professionalism.

    It also shows the entire world that there is selective application of the ISA on different people in the Malaysian society. The perpetrators got scott-free while the innocent innocently jailed and confined. Where is the justice? Let PRU 13 be the deciding time to wipe out the oppressing forces.

    Teresa, God is with you. We had committed you to God in our prayers and He has worked it out today for your release. God is supreme (not others) in this land and only those who believe in Him shall have salvation.

    In our religious faith, we always believe that no one can judge another. Only God can do so. Who is to judge you are a threat to Malaysia? Nobody except God. That’s why God worked it out to ensure you are saved, you are blessed (because the ISA detention gave you a lot publicity and support for moving towards a just society in Malaysia) and empowered to carry out what God wanted all of us to do. God bless you and Malaysia.

    Let’s not forget to press on for RPK, the Hindraf 5, and the unrepresented ISA detainees still languishing in Kamunting. They deserve our help as well. RPK, for one, the unsung hero deserves critical attention by all parties to demand his immediate release coming from all walks of life; whether from the Pakatan Rakyat or any sane Malaysian from both the political divide. His struggle is for the people of Malaysia, thus it has to be by the people of Malaysia to help to free him. God will also be with him and He will have a way to work it out for RPK.

    Malaysians of any faith must always remember there is judgment day that we will face; for the things that we do here on this earthly world. The wrath each and every one of us faces depends on what “good deeds” were being carried out by us. Beware and be fearful. No even those in power or those who created power unto themselves are exempted from this. So AAB, Syed Hamid, the police and all the others in UMNO………what’s your take?

    Just like Anwar’s sodomy case, when the medical report by Dr Mohd Osman came out in RPK web site saying that he has not found any sign at all of sodomy, the police did not thank him for exposing the truth, on the contrary, the Doctor was harassed and RPK was put in the self-invent ISA.

    Kok’s release came after Washington Thursday expressed “grave concern” over Malaysia’s use of the ISA as a possible way to stifle dissent.

    “The United States firmly believes that national security laws, such as the ISA, must not be used to curtail or inhibit the exercise of universal democratic liberties or the peaceful expression of political views,” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

    “The detention of opposition leaders under the ISA would be viewed by the United States and the international community as a fundamental infringement of democratic rights and values,” he added. – YAHOO ASIA NEWS

    YB LKS,

    Arresting YB Teresa Kok was a joke. You read newspaper and ISA people. Well based on the explanation by the police and the home minister , that’s how the rakyat going to look at it. Sheer revenge!
    As for RPK , he did not write anything wrong. He just spoke the truth like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Lucky they are not Malaysians! The new bred of people are watching and listening.
    BN government SPENDS billions to create RACE UNITY via NS Camps.
    Later on they do the reverse in Biro Tata Negara. Is not the “btn officer” in charge dangerous to the Malaysian Society. Do we ISA
    him or promote him like the Banting culturally moron teacher who happens to be a DISGRACE to the noble teaching profession.

    Today generation ponders deeply, unless you are honest and sincere and concise, you cannot lead them.

    Wishing RPK for a good health. The brains need his writings to stay awake. The PM may find RPK a great help to be alert!

    If ISA is really for the intention of detaining those who said things which is a threat to public order and National security, Ahmad Ismail should be the first person to be detained under ISA for his racial provocative statements that Chinese are pendatang.

    He has appeared 3 times in our News headlines. Again and again mentioning the same words in a very-very arrogant style and he was not even detained in ISA or police station for a single day and in fact he was not punished at all.

    Although he said he was referring to Chinese’s rights before independence, but this is still a very-very sensitive issue which he was aired thrice in the headlines. This is enough to creat recial disharmony and fightings.

    If ISA is not used on him, don’t used it on anyone else.
    I did not even hear what Teresa has said to deserve ISA where as I have heard and seen Ahmad’s statement three times in the headlines of all the News channel.

    Very clear evidence of dictatorial UMNO.

    Now that Teresa is free, is time to move on to save RPK. Remember, he is the main guy you must save because it was his courage and integrity that fights injustice and revealing evidence of those bad people that start to make the rise of the Malaysians in nation building. Please do not forget him and focus effort in saving him and the hindraf guys. They are all innocent and wrongly imprisoned by bad people for the wrong reason. As for Teresa welcome back to the world of the people. We the Malaysians welcome you to be back. Next stop RPK, and this time, make it even bigger.

    Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had defended the arrests, saying they were used only when there was a threat to security and public order and that the three arrests had been made by the police, not on instructions from the government. – YAHOO ASIA NEWS

    I wonder how many people would believe that:

    “……the three arrests had been made by the police, not on instructions from the government.”

    Hallelujah!! Wonderful news for the weekend. The joy of her freedom can only be tempered by the fact that there are still others who are held without trial unjustly and under dubious reasons or flimsy excuses. I agree with many in the blog that now we should focus on helping RPK be free. I am reminded of the civil rights song in the U.S. “We Shall Overcome.” It looks light the Rakyat given the paradigm shift of what they can do is starting to overcome today.

    Does anyone have any data on how many are detained under the ISA currently? What is the longest time of incarceration for those still under ISA detention today?

    The Question here.? …Pity Raja Petra is still dying under ISA detention and he is hoping the change of new government promised by Anwar will release him . His biggest bet is on his freedom, he bets on Anwar to topple Pak Lah to step down and surrender the govenment to Pakatan Rakyat at anytime. RPK is counting on his last straw and his time to win the race or otherwise he will perish under ISA unlawful detention without human rights. Will he dies under ISA detention ? Malaysians are worried especially the Bloggers will go berserk and go to streets to protest again.

    First of all, we thank God that you have been released and have not been physically harmed. Secondly we continue to pray for the release of all those who have been unlawfully detained under ISA especially RPK and Hindraf leaders. Thirdly, shame on the police force and judiciary for their blatant failure to uphold the integrity of the law, justice, and peace by acting as mere puppets and slaves of corrupted UMNO polticians. You are the pariah and cowards of Malaysian society for failing to protect the interest of the rakyat, and acting in the selfish interest of certain individuals in the “government”. You can run away from your wrongdoings now, but you can’t run away from God’s justice! Let the international community know of your misdeeds and hopefully the EU and US will impose diplomatic sanctions on UMNO politicians.

    We all must still keep on fighting.Our next battle must be the release of RPK, HINDRAF LEADERS and everyone else detained under ISA.
    The war is only won, when the ISA is apolished.
    By the way when will the police call up KHIR TOYOL and the reporter of UTUSAN for their statement to be taken.

  173. #173 by Godfather on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 7:04 pm

    Stop asking the government or the police to probe Utusan, Ahmad Ismail or Tempe. It just won’t happen.

    Get every ISA detainee to sue Syed Botak and the government for abuse of process plus dereliction of duty. The courts are probably more inclined now to act as check and balance against abuses of authority.

  174. #174 by taiking on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 7:05 pm

    If the recent isa arrests can be treated as a snap shot of current events then habis umno.

    1) Tan of sinchew – wrongfully arrested and detained – no sensible reasons for arrest.

    2) Teresa of dap – wrongfully arrested and detained – wrong reasons for arrest.

    3) Kickdefella – wrongfully arrested and detained – very very dubious reasons – flying national flag upside down? Is that a threat to national security?

    4) RPK – wrongfully arrested and detained – even if he had been naugthy with his postings no need to use isa which is meant for terrorist and communists or where national security is an issue. Anyone here felt threatened by his postings? Or you fellas enjoying them (not necessarily believing in them)?

    I say umno is panicking like crazy. No umno is shaken and threatened.

    ISA umno. I mean umno protection dont they? So isa them. My authority for saying this: Kerajaan Malaysia vs Tan [2008] ISA 1.

  175. #175 by ahoo on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 7:08 pm

    YB Kit,

    Congratulations ! God is good all the time. With each obstacle slowly being removed, the path to Putrajaya is much nearer by the days. Please get all DAP members to continue the stand against ISA without wavering. There are many more in Kamunting that needs to be release irrespective of race, religion or creed. If the govt has sufficient evidence, then bring them to court and face the laws. How can they be denied justice by being mere suspects or worse still ‘fix-up’ by evil people with wicked minds.

    God forbids that anyone should be charged under ISA. I personally would not even think it applicable to even my worst enemies. Let those who have committed wrongs be subject to the due process of the law. Let the good sense and sanity returns to Parliament and may we see an end of this draconian act that have had serve its purpose during the era of communism. Engage the Malay brothers who shared a common interest in politics such as PAS, PK and even NGOs to ensure that the govt heed the calls of the peoples of Malaysia that we do not need this act anymore.

    We are peace loving Malaysians and cares for the goodness of each other and not like those portray by some racists and corrupted politicians that uses the maxim of divide to rule. God saves this beloved nation from those imbecile politicians that care only for their position and personal wealths.

    Your struggle to date may have been slow but nonetheless I believe that there are many people that are greatly impacted by your unwavering stand and surely the lights at the end of the long tunnel will be bright.

  176. #176 by Godfather on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 7:09 pm

    Sheih Kickdefella is charged under the Sedition Act, not the ISA. The argument against the charge is the same – flying the flag upside down cannot be considered seditious.

    The intellectual bankruptcy of Malaysia will be a reality soon if the false accusers and real perpetrators of racial and religious provocations are not brought to court with the same vigour as they incorrectly put Teresa Kok and countless others in jail without trial.

    I agree with Teresa that the ISA should not be used. One wrong cannot be corrected by another wrong. That is vengeance but the rakyat is only asking for fair justice, be it in principle or enforcement.

  179. #179 by ENDANGERED HORNBILL on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 7:29 pm

    Thanks to the shocker from Zaid and the vehement protests by so many freedom-loving, God-fearing, sensible and fine citizens of Malaysia, Teresa is now free.

    It also proves to be a damning indictment of the BN government and the police force. The BN government and Police must be held accountable. How is a harmless lady and MP like Teresa ever be a national security threat!

    Somebody has to get his head checked. At least Syed Hamid and IGP must get theirs checked.

  181. #181 by ktteokt on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 7:38 pm

    The ISA has indeed outlived its shelf life. It was the BN who announced that the communists in Malaysia have been eliminated and so what is the use of keeping this act which was meant to be used against the communists? Unless of course if BN considers all those working against it as “communists”! But that would again be a SLAP on the face of AAB who heads the BN if there are still “communists” in Malaysia despite BN’s declaration of having eliminated them!

    Teresa Kok’s Release Decided Entirely By Police, Says Syed Hamid

    PUTRAJAYA, Sept 19 (Bernama) — Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said the release of the Seputeh Member of Parliament, Teresa Kok, from detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA) was decided entirely by the police without referring to him or requiring his approval.

    So it is confirmed :

    1. The Police is in charge, is king in this country. Not the Minister or Cabinet.

    2. The Minister and government does not know what the heck is going on. Are they in control? Is our security assured?

    3. Botak does not want to make any more stupid statements.

    The Reporter is free. The MP is free.

    Only the King (Raja) is in jail, together with many others.

    Free ISA petition. Please read it again.


    Does it make sense to seek the release of all 65 detainees while at the same time condoning or rather supporting the use of ISA on “armed terrorists and those out to topple the government by force” – the very charges faced by the Hindraf 5 and those supposedly linked to the JI movement.
    As long as the ISA is in the statues it will be open to abuse. The government can classify anyone a “terrorist” if it wants to, as conveniently as Anwar is made a sodomite and as conveniently as the Hindraf 5 are linked to the Tamil Tigers and as conveniently as Teresa Kok is made national threat.

    Also remember the grounds for ISA detention is NOT open to review by the courts as the Ministers Order is final. This is a draconian law and it must be repealed.
    So, do you still support the ISA?

    First things first. Welcome back, Teresa … and well done. If it is any consolation, Malaysia enjoys the dubious distinction of being the only country where the crooks are free and the good people are arrested and detained without trial under the draconian Internal Security Act.


    I do not think Kit is trying to make enemies. He is just merely telling all Malaysians what kind of representatives the MCA has sent to the Cabinet.

    At the right forum, they keep their tails between their legs. In public, they make it seem as if they are the champions.

    As I have said, the present four and some of the previous MCA Cabinet Ministers are nothing but self-servers. They serve only themselves. Just beware of such people.

    Even top Umno leaders do not respect these people. They dare not speak truth to power.

    Won’t be bad idea to put khir under ISA. The SIL of PM & S of former PM can have a straight fight for youth post. That of course depend on whether khir involvement in the fight favours SIL or S.

    Syed Hamid said that the release of Teresa Kok was decided entirely by Police. Syed Hamid had three versions on who decided entirely to detain Teresa under ISA. He should now have the final version. If the whole affair of detaining Teresa, and releasing her were entirely decided by Police, an episode that had brought shame to the country, the Minister Syed Hamid should demand a report on how the fiasco was initiated in the police, and who was responsible.

    The press statement of YB Teresa indicates that the Police had failed to perform their basic duty to verify whether the allegations based on newspaper writings were facts. From the questions asked of Teresa Kok, even if the accusations were true, Teresa Kok could not be charged for endangering national security. In detaining Teresa, the police had only created tension in the society in demonstrating that Police no longer act within the rule of its role.

    It is ironical that the ministry which is charged of maintaining national security against violence should be the one which created the impression of national insecurity to the citizens and investors abroad. Japanese officials would have resigned. We don’t expect our people to be sensitive to their image. But they should apologize for the fiasco.

    I rejoice with you all over Miss Teresa’s release. Raja Petra, Hindraf and others should also be released immediately. So, P.M. is making his way to the exit door in a non shameful manner by changing posts with D.P.M. Others should also have honourable discharges before the law finds them out.

    Finally, someone see the light or couldn’t stand the heat. Also, how dare the UTusan columnist push for lie detector…. Shouldn’t the burden be on them to prove that their article is true. Khir Toyo is one of the blogger that give bloggers around the world bad name… Lies or fitnah or just bad rumors he need to be investigated for malicious lies.

    Utusan Melayu reporter and Khir Toyol you guys need to submit to the court or else tertract the article. Malaysian Law is about innocent till proven guilty not guilty until proven innocent. So, please get ready to pay up your $30 Million….. to the poor people of Malaysia.

    What kind of warpped logic the UTUSAN has…
    Now every utusan reporter must take lie-detector test to prove what the write is true…
    Every utusan editor, columnist etc… must take lie-detector test to show that the NEWSPAPER reports are true…

    Syed Botak is such a lousy liar. When Teresa was taken away, he said it was for her own protection. Subsequently he said he had nothing to do with it. Now that Teresa is released, he said he had nothing to do with it either, and that the Police has powers under a specific section of the ISA to release suspects as they deem fit.

    C’mon, Syed Botak, are you telling us that the Police are so well versed in the law that they don’t check with the AG’s Chambers or the Home Ministry on such matters ? The Police are so well versed in the law that they can decide who they want to “protect” and who they want to “let go” ?

    They asked Sin Chew Daily,The Sun and Suara Keadilan to show cause and explain why their publication permits should not be revoked.Many are wondering why they singled out the three popular papers.After all these three papers in the eyes of their readers vigorously uphold,reveal and support truth.That exactly is what journalism is all about.By right Utusan long known for its infamous unfair,biased and race tainted reporting should have been banned and stopped publishing.Anyway the public is not blind and they know who is behind the whole sickening scenario.

    Am so very happy that the Barang Naik gomen finally admitted that they are absolutely wicked & wrong to detain smart & intelligent people who disagree with them. But our beloved RPK who is the smartest & most intelligent of all is still being incarcerated unjustly. This is a gross injustice not only to fellow Malaysians but to GOD the Almighty. For that retribution will definitely follow the dastardly culprits.

    I would be in real fear at this moment if I am one of those who signed the petition !!!

    This is because if I am in that position, I would be in the dark now. The simple collective local petition as a peaceful request to lower down volume ( if I am not mistaken ), to the very understanding mosque committee had cast them into limbo now.

    What is their position now ? are they subjected to Sedition Act for insensitivities toward religion ? or are the petition legal rights of Malaysian citizen ?

    “THAT’S MY MOM!”, exclaimed Teresa when receiving the flowers from her mother, at the front gate of the police station, celebrating her moment of release in the presence of her father. Both daughter and mother hugged each other while the reporters busy taking their photographs. What a heart-touching reunion scene, after losing 7 days of freedom under the ISA captivity.

    This has demonstrated a major flaw in the ISA. Next, all parties should focus on freeing RPK, Hindraf 5 and other detainees under the ISA. There is no clear protocol in using the act. Accountability is zero. A judiciary reform is therfore vital.

    Who should be held responsible for the detention fiasco? Answer is no one. Imagine the following scenario:

    Hypothesis arises where a weak ISA case is to be built. PM passing the ball to home minister. Home minister says leave it freely to IGP or acting IGP. IGP says since this is ISA, it is not required to consult attorney general and push it to the investigating officer. The investivating officer with the unique intelligence gathering capability, reports back to superior and recommends to make an arrest. There goes the start of an operation. PM says he does not interfere, home minister says he leave it to head of police while attorney general is not involved. Head of police leaves it to the investigating officer and no one will eventually be held responsible. The police has too much power with the ISA.

    1. From the ministry governance point of view: As the police reports to the home minister, has the home minister received and checked the report from the police before the arrest? To date, what we have been hearing is that he leaves it freely to the police to investigate.
    2. From the law enforcement point of view: Has the head of police verified the evidence before substantiating the charges against the detainee?

    I am not saying the whole police force is corrupted. The police has been doing a great job fighting crimes. Their records have been outstanding. Nevertheless, the arrests made under the recent high-profile case, the force has demonstrated the unprofessional and substandard manner, in the way it has handled the situation which is the opposite of “BERSIH, CEKAP dan AMANAH”.

    To uphold the dignity of this slogan and the force, the head on top owes the public a kind explanation.

    The parliament should later have a debate on this issue to protect our liberty stated in the constitution. To get to the bottom, may we know:

    1. How many detainees currently being held under ISA, without having the chance for fair trial?
    2. The longest duration the current detainee is being held. How long?
    3. Has there be medical attention provided when required?
    4. How often their family members get to pay them visit a year?

    They have been denied the rights to be reunited with family and love ones. With absolute power, abuse is imminent. So is absolute freedom I admit, disorder can prevail.

    Once again we hear BN-Law being exclaimed. Utusan Malaysia reporter now asked YAB Teresa to sit for ‘lie detector’. BN-Law is always ‘guilty until proven innocent’. The person who should be in the lie-detector should be the reporter Zaini & Datuk Botox. Where’s the prove? Even the Police don’t have it & they acted so quickly on it…whilst the police reports against Utusan reporter & Datuk Botox has been thrown into the rubbish bin. Where’s the integrity & pride of the police? Now is the time for PDRM to redeem themselves & serve the Rakyat – not BN. PDRM is only the IGP & his gang that is stuffed with BN-$$$. I am sure there are really good cops out there who truly want to uphold justice & serve-protect rakyat, not intimidate rakyat like BN. Unfortunately, the good cops (those that speak out) will be the ones that will never get promotions, transfered to god forsaken places, etc.

    I support YAB Teresa to sue Utusan, Zaini & Datuk Botox. Now, they have to provide prove of their own allegations & prove their innocence. It is the principle of the matter. Since BN supports ISA, these are the people who should be locked up since they are so glad to incite racial & religious sentiments. Put them in the same cell as the terrorist that they claimed were terrorist. They should be ashamed of themselves. Apology not accepted now.

    However, YAB Teresa should thank the police for her ‘early release’ so that the law suit can be pursued earlier. Sue the Home Minister as well…then maybe he can be locked up in ISA for his own safety.

    I’m really happy that YB Teresa Kok is released, but let us not forget the others, e.g. HINDRAF & Raja Petra who are still in detention.

    Now, I just wonder when will PR take over this government?? Uncle Lim, if it is so hard to get these UMNO goons to meet Anwar, can’t we just get those so-called MPs who have “signed up” to defect to PR to resign from their capacity as an MP and call for a snap election? I can guarantee you BN will lose, and LOSE BIG this time round. Unless of course, these UMNO monkeys / orang utans cheat again.

    Btw, why the hell is that sleepy ol’ PM refuse to meet Anwar?? Why so scared? If he is really CONFIDENT that NONE of the BN MPs have agreed to defect to PR, then he should bravely meet Anwar and see the list. The PM should agree to convene an emergency meeting in Parliament and see if Anwar can prove the list of 31 defected MPs. I mean, if Anwar is indeed bluffing and he can’t produce the list to the PM, then the PM & BN would immediately gain credibility coz Anwar’s lying and he doesn’t have the 31 MPs indeed. So, for a fact that the sleepy ol’ PM refuse to meet Anwar & convene an emergency Parliament meeting, so looks like he is afraid that Anwar DO HAVE the 31 MPs indeed!! No?

    If you read about how Teresa was given 2 hard-boiled eggs, rice and cucumber for the 2 main meals, you can’t help but imagine that someone is getting rich from the catering contract at Bukit Aman.

  235. #235 by pjboy on Friday, 19 September 2008 - 10:53 pm

    Bet you the 2 eggs + cucumber = RM 50. PDRM have to pay this to the caterer (maybe it is also Skychef ? the same catering company to MAS…). Maybe business is bad so they need more ISA detainees. 60 odd detainees is only 2 x RM 50 x 60 = 600 a day bill. Total approx RM 18,000/mth.

The perpetrators? police don’t need to take action. Now can just swear on the koran to declare one’s innocence and don’t need lawyers or judges for sentences!

    For the past week, i am sure that all Malaysian began to realise the true identity of ISA. The recent fast released of reporter Tan and YB Terresa were due to the unanimous voice of the rakyat, a voice so loud that even had caught the international attention, and had shaken within BN itself. How about those innocent lives whom are still in the ISA detention. Many had been hauled up in the 6′ by 8′ detention cell for many many years. They had been torn down & silenced. Their daily life are 4 huge walls surrounding them. Even our prisoner in the civil jail got 6 meals daily, time to interact and had their leisure time. We should continue to voice up & stand firm to secure their safe release so that they could be trial by the law and secure their freedom.Malaysian are civilized people. ISA MUST be ABOLISH.

    YAB LKS was quick & sharp to question the Utusan reporter when challenging YAB Teresa to go on lie-detector by saying “For what???”. Where do they get these reporters in the first place? The police already interrogated YAB Teresa for the same questions & answered. The police did not show any evidence whatsoever.

    Let’s hope Utusan will react the same when they get the law suit…then they have to look back at what they published & reported over a week ago.

    ISA is used by neanderthals, not homosapiens.

    ISA = Inhumane Security Act.

    My theory is all these ISA thingy now is to scare DSAI. Why dig up old issues? Also, for the wrong reasons. Those people who are to be investigated are let off. BN has lost every step against DSAI (American Agent, Sodomy, Anti-Malay, Anti-Chinese, Anti-Indian, Oil Debate, P44 By-Election, etc). So, DSAI is the only threat to BN’s thread of power/greed. There’s no other way left for BN but ISA. Guess BN will have to lock up every Rakyat into ISA just to intimidate 1 man. That will be lots of eggs & cucumber required from the caterer. Caterer will be very happy, got more ‘customers’.

    BN knows that if ISA is used on DSAI, it will be B-end. In the contrary, the growth of support for DSAI will be even more stronger than before. For this reason, ‘smaller’ rivals to BN were victims of the ISA.

    ISA is against Islamic teachings…but supported by BN-UMNO as it is a useful tool against political rivals, even within BN. Ever wonder who always holds the post of Home Minister? UMNO lah. So, who holds the power of ISA…UMNO lah, not the cabaret, not the BN as a whole. MCA/MIC/etc are Sleeping Beauties, even longer than Pak Liar. So, what is Islam Hadhari? Threathening the rakyat & political rivals with ISA? I can’t wait to see the big whip from heaven on to those who claim to be holier than the holy.

    If cabaret still looking east to Japan, then Home Minister must do the honorary thing now. Resign or ‘political hara kiri’. This will save further humiliation to our country. At least now when Datuk Zaid is seen in the public, he can hold his head high with respect from the rakyat.

    The official letter from the EPCB (European Parliamentary Caucus on Burma) dated 18-Sept-08 must have played a crucial role in pressuring Home Minister to do something. The letter was specially to him. It goes to show BN is still a ‘reactive’ gov, not ‘pro-active’.

    The letter should be posted in all P-R websites. No hope for STAR, NST, etc MSM to print it. Hopeless newspapers. It should not be called newspapers, should be BN newsletters.

    Why should Teresa take a lie detector test? I’m surprised he didn’t ask her to swear by the bible since rule of law means nothing in this country nowadays thanks to our PM showing us the way. Who is the guilty party here? The mosque has denied it and now she has to take a lie detector test cos Utusan thinks that is the best way to prove her innocent. Lets not forget that the police has released her. Utusan seems to have better intelligence and investigation skills then the police. Utusan more often than not is the culprit that stirs racial discord and does it without fear of punishment cos they are protected by UMNO and the police closes one eye to Utusan. There just seems to be double standard in terms of law enfocement when there is involvment of UMNO and its ‘partners’. Take a hike Utusan.

    HOORAY YB TERESA KOK. My heart is filled with joy and relief knowing that you’re finally released!

    I can’t technically say “Congratulations” to Teresa because she shoudn’t have been detained at the first place.

    However, Teresa’s release must be credited to a Divine’s intervention, loving parents, faithful colleagues and leaders of DAP, PAS and PKR. Not forgetting her resilient and courage.

    The public outcry against the detention of Teresa Kok under ISA does not end with her release, the public now will further demand for the release of Raja Petra and the other ISA detainees. Then, the rakyat expect nothing less than the ISA to be repealed or abolished within the shortest time frame! If the current government is unwilling to do so, the rakyat will then anticipate for a new government which is willing to repeal this draconian and abusive law.

    Nevertheless, the Government and the Inspector General of Police must publicly APOLOGIZE & COMPENSATE Sin Chew Reporter Tan and YB Teresa Kok to further ease public’s outcry.

    The police’s statment for YB Teresa Kok’s release is just as absurd as the reason was given to Sin Chew Reporter Tan’s detention under the ISA. I thought in common law of justice that police is to investigate (or interrogate at max. 24 hours for investigation) and achieve a considerable authentic evidence before detaining someone pending for trail. However, in Teresa’s case, everything seems to be OUT OF LAW AND ORDER.

    As for the Utusan Reporter who questioned if Teresa is willing to take the lie detector test to prove her innocence has only earned himself/herself a two “tight slaps” from the Rakyat.

    The arrest of reporter Tan, Teresa and RPK under ISA are the most blatant cases of human rights abuse by the police and corrupt politicians. Where are all the commissioners of Suhakam? Can’t lift a finger or say a word because no report of human right abuse? If that is how Suhakam works then if a house next door to a Fire Station is on fire will all the firemen just sit and enjoy looking at the burning house just because no one has reported the fire?

    Shame on you! Suhakam Commissioners.

First move of swapping the power is to let the new Finance Minister, Najib, to deliver the good news such as petrol price going down around $2.10. This welcome news will lift up the people confidence and therefore gain more people support. Then Pak Lah will step down, another move which people are waiting for. Another move to save UMNO from deep abyss.

    Someone memang kurang ajar by asking Teresa to take the lie detector test. Why don’t they ask UTUSAN MALAYSIA OR THAT TOYO to take the test? Memang berat sebelah and childish. Oh, don’t forget that Ahmad Ismail. Shouldn’t he take the test too? Sue them for damages. Teach them a lesson!

    Dear YB Kok,

    thanks to you, we pin another feather on our cap of freedom and liberation. It is very much a victory march of solidarity for us too when you emerge from the ashes of ISA.


    It is perhaps prudent to call on a specialist to inoculate against the deep slumber sickness which might be accidentally contracted due CLOSE PROXIMITY WITH THE NUMBER 1 CARRIER IN OUR BELOVED NATION.

    A LOT of happenings lately esp with rampant self initiated ISA detention by the Royal Simon Force without the “thinning above’s” knowledge. Does this surmount to insubordination or blatant disrespect to the Syed fella and the office he bear? OR does it means that the Syed fella has no real jurisdiction or even control over the protector of people, the Royal Simon Force?

    Thank GOD that our ‘Saint’ Teresa has been released from the double-egdes sword law ISA. ISA is used to guard against elements which posed danger or instability to the country(C). Now, Teresa(A) was targerted by the police as one of the element . The police(B) detented her under ISA. Now, after the interrogation , the police found out that she is no longer the element who caused the problem. Now, the country should back to normal before her detention. But the actual situation is not the case. The rakyat and all those who released by the detention now started to demand for justification(C) . In another words,. our represent situation is worst than before the arrest . Isn’t it the element who started the arrest of thses elements under ISA are responsible to arrested under ISA because they(B) have caused the unrest and danger to the country ? Unless, there is justification that after all those who were arrested by the ISA the country’s situation is back to peaceful and stable situation that the authorithy who started the arrest should arrest themself now, because the sword has the ‘double-edge’.

  276. #276 by Jeffrey on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 7:08 am

    Even as we rejoice in YB Theresa Kok’s release, we must not forget the dangers lurking that got her arrested in the first place. These dangers are still lurking and ever present. I wish to say something about them.

    No one doubts that Malaysia is replete with more than our share of repressive preventive detention laws inimical to civil liberties, eg the ISA, the Public Order (Preservation) and Prevention of Crime Acts, Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance and Emergency (Essential Powers) Ordinance etc.

    Repressive laws per se don’t represent a problem if they are properly applied. Society is protected from terrorists, jihadists and bombers and triad societies by judicious application of such repressive laws.

    So what is the real threat to civil liberties, rule of law and democracy in Malaysia?

    It is this trend – a compound and mix of these several elements:

    1. An overly sensitive attitude of people or groups of people who get easily offended by others remarks or actions alleged to be sensitive in terms of race, religion with the scope expanding to cover other tyhings as well. I call them the ‘egg shell’ cases because their feelings are as fragile as “egg shell” easily angered and overly sensitive.

    2. Their modus operandi : coalesce as a group and lodge police reports. They seldom file a civil suit to seek redress to their injured feelings. Why ? Because they have to prove their case before court of law which they know they cannot succeed because basically they either have no justification in law/cause of action or the evidence to prove it, and if they lose the case they not only have to bear the cost of engaging their lawyers but also pay costs to the other side for an unsuccessful action. Now lodging police report incurs no cost but is beneficial in terms of ingratiating themselves with certain political groups or persons when such report lodged advances the latter’s political agenda.

    3. The problem of 1 & 2 above is Ok and manageable provided the investigating and police authorities do their work properly, which requires of course (i) they’re familiar with the law (ii) investigate the facts thoroughly and if unsure of how the lawapplies to the facts investigated consult at least capable officers of the AG’s chambers and (iii) arrest only after investigations are completed, and the facts suit the offence. Now we have a real problem if they use the repressive laws to arrest first on the first complaint and do the investigation later using the extensive time afforded by these repressive laws to remand the person complained against to investigate the facts. This is bad because if the person is innocent as as Theresa Kok’s and Reporter Tan Hoon Cheng’s case have shown (where they are freed within a shortwhile after investigation) their civil liberties would have already have been violated. They have gone to jail for nothing, and have been released subsequently without knowing what they have done wrong!

    4. The problem of 3 is compounded by lack of accountability and oversight on relevant Minister of Home Affairs’s part when he said he did not give the Ok for either arrest or release of the detainees.

    The above 4 phenomenae interacting in combination is a clear and present compound of threat to our civil liberties and development of democracy.

    Problem 3 may be addressed by IPCMC and 4 perhaps by change of Minister. I am worried about the trend stated in 1 and 2 above, about which I have got more to say.

  277. #277 by Jeffrey on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 7:22 am

    Continuing from my preceding posting, Malaysiakini’s Athi Veeranggan | Sep 19, 08 7:32pm have reported , “a Penang group comprising 15 people calling itself ‘Concern Citizens’ lodged a police report against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for creating “instability, disharmony and disorder” over his Sept 16 plan to seize power. Group spokesperson Wan Abidin Zain claimed that Anwar’s relentless pursuit to take Putrajaya from BN’s grasp was “undemocratic, immoral and irresponsible”. The group, comprising about 15 people, rapped Anwar of being selfish and inconsiderate by embarking to grab power last Tuesday, causing Malaysians to press the panic button fearing that the country was about to descent into unrest and uncertainty.
    The group claimed that some parents did not even send their children to school and many went on a buying spree to stock up essential household goods. “Anwar creating a near chaotic situation and panic among Malaysians. He posed a threat against the country’s economy and shook the confidence of foreign investors. “He triggered a political crisis and stalemate on Sept 16,” said Wan Abidin, calling on the police to investigate Anwar for sedition and causing public disorder.”

    Now please note this fits in very well – hand and glove – with what the Prime Minister had said on last Wednesday that Anwar was a threat to the country’s economy and security.

    So even if the PM said ISA won’t be used, will other repressive laws be used by the police to arrest DSAI first and investigate later?

    If this is done DSAI can forget about his cross over scheme even when Parliament resumes session on 13th October.

    An arrest of DSAI will throw a wet blanket on whosever intending to cross over to PR under his leadership.

  280. #280 by Godfather on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 7:32 am


    What is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander. There have been police reports filed against Ahmad Ismail, Tempe Toyol, Utusan, etc for fanning racist sentiments. If Anwar is arrested under the ISA “for the purposes of investigation” or “for his own safety”, then why are the UMNOputras not given the same treatment ? I don’t think we should be worried of charges under the Sedition Act because these would be heard in a court of law, and it would be incumbent of these clowns to prove why Anwar’s antics “harmed” the government and the people.

    I am certain Anwar would love to have his day in court if he is charged with sedition.

  281. #281 by undergrad2 on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 7:33 am

    Legislation which is used to suppress political opposition and stifle the growth of informed public opinion like the Printing Presses & Publications Act must be reprealed.

    The ISA in its present form must be abolished. It should make way for an anti-terrorism law with all the necessary legal safeguards like judicial review and more. It should be renewable by a two-third votes of members of Parliament every two years unless repealed.

  282. #282 by chiakchua on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 7:43 am

    Thanks God for Teresa’s victorious release! The biggest credit must go to Zaid; his resignation sent the strongest signal to all the racist UMNOputras and cronies that they made a big blunder arresting Teresa. We salute you Zaid, you are the TRUE MALAYSIAN that the Kamal was looking for!

    Now we shall continue to press for the release of RPK and Hindraf 5! They should get Ahmad Ismail in to replace them; what a double standard, what Ahmad Ismail did is more threatening to the peace and harmony of the country, he stirs the beehive directly but could get off the hook with UMNO patronage. UMNO is the real RACIST King!

  283. #283 by Jeffrey on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 7:48 am

    You will note RPK was detained under ISA because reports were lodged by certain Islamic groups against him for insulting religion. Theresa was arrested because PPIM and Pewaris lodged reports against her.

    Even as far back as 2003 Umno Youth today lodged a police report against malaysiakini over a letter which was published on the website on Jan 9 allegedly questioning Malay special rights, instill hatred towards the government in non-Malay Malaysians etc.

    This unhealthy trend of lodging police reports to settle scores is not confined to UMNO youth or groups sympathetic to BN but also the Opposition including DAP. Everyone filed a report against Ahmad Ismail’s racist remarks reported by Sin Chew – not just MCA, Gerakan but the DAP as well. So tit for tat Utusan would report and police reports by relevant interest group would lodge reports against Theresa Kok or reporter Tan.

    What kind of society have we become? Supposing now for a political motive I want to fix someone well and good. It is sory easy to generate Police Reports against target by using certain groups, they declare they are hurt by what has been said or done, and presto a few days later, he is arrested (for investigations)!

    How do we solve this problem of the intrument of police report and police action being constantly used to settle scores including political scores and mediate conflicts including political conflicts?

    Everyone wants to be a cry baby : my race or my religion is offended by what you say. Now the Penang group’s report against DSAI is even more abstract and contentious – he’s “creating a near chaotic situation and panic among Malaysians. He posed a threat against the country’s economy and shook the confidence of foreign investors. He triggered a political crisis and stalemate on Sept 16.”

    If everyone likes to be a cry baby and is helped by police to assuage his hurt feelings or other grievances, then every one else too is not going to be safe per the 4 conditions I set out in my earlier posting Today at 07: 08.03 above.

  284. #284 by Jeffrey on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 8:01 am

    //I don’t think we should be worried of charges under the Sedition Act// – Godfather which implicitly assumes (1) that although complaining group talks about “sedition”, authorities won’t invoke ISA even if language of complaint fits language/parameters of ISA and (2) PM won’t aboutfaceturn on what he said about not using ISA. Do these assumptions hold? He said he won’t use ISA on Anwar for political objectives but if what he did (say make false claims) fit the language of ISA as complained by this group, are you still sure the ISA won’t be invoked?

    I agree about the suace for goose/gander bit since even DAP lodged reports against Ahmad Ismail. The danger is this then when everyone becomes a “cry baby” using police reports and action (instead of civil suits) as a means to sek redress and assuage fragile hurt feelings, then nobody else would be safe when the police have proven themselves gungho…

    The ISA should only be used to arrest terrorists or trouble-makers who go on shooting sprees in the street and plant bombs in buildings, buses and trains, i.e. people who pose a PHYSICAL threat to the nation.

    The ISA / Sedition Act must not be used against politicians and civilians who criticize the government. After all the government can choose to listen or ignore their criticisms. A progressive government is one who is willing to listen and study the views (be they positive or negative) of its citizens. The government is only justified to use ISA against these people if their criticisms are accompanied by PHYSICAL destructive acts e.g. burning down of government buildings, assembly halls and buses.

  291. #291 by mincetoiletpaper on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 9:47 am

    Ahmad Ismail, Khir Toyol, Zaini Hassan & Satim should be in ISA instead. They are the ones who are making threats to the nation security and cause of instability. Could we petition up to request ISA to hold them up?. The names above are all UMNO’s guys, why there is no ISA on them? It so clearly see that UMNO=ISA=UMNO. This is so undemocratic.

    The BN Mps say the request for change from the Pakatan Rakyat were undemocratic. My question back to them, why the ‘change’ being prop up if the BN, especially UMNO has not been practicing democratically.

    when Teresa was detained, rakyats from all walks of life, people of different race and religions, politician from different parties, NGO, social groups, etc, voiced condemnation of her detention. even law minister resigned in protest. even heads of 2 mosque see fit to come out to deny the allegations against her; they are protecting her.

    when she was freed, all congratulated her, and are very happy for her.

    does the above scenario look like she’s a threat to Malaysians ?? does she look like a threat to national security ??

    Malaysians need to be protected from the wanton use of the ISA. Abolish ISA!

  293. #293 by human1 on Saturday, 20 September 2008 - 9:49 am

    That’s it. It is all up to the police. Police will decide:

    “You are a THREAT, so we use ISA for detention without trial.”
    “No, you are not at THREAT level yet, so we use something else e.g. sedition act”

    It is truly unconvicing. There is no guarantee in making mistaken arrests, but as we see, the precedence has been set long before.

    The home minister and cabinet throw the ball standing aside to be an oberver, while watching the police to freely exercise the licence to “detain” individual deemed a THREAT; selective justification from the mix of facts, truth, make-believe sources, twisted information filling the atmosphere.

    This is madness. We cannot simply silence blogger by putting them into detention cell, because of their criticism to the government and their views in the current political development.

    Kok was released yesterday after a week’s detention, and Abdullah seemed to back off his implied threat. But Anwar’s team is acutely aware that only five arrests of MPs could change a no-confidence vote, if and when it happens.

    “When a party has been in power for more than half a century, to imagine losing their grip on power is going to be horrendous, unthinkable and they may resort to this measure,” Anwar said.

    ISA arrest of YB Teresa Kok for inquiry

    A Commission of Inquiry is needed to review all aspects of the arrest of YB Terasa Kok just before midnight on Friday. The Public Complaint Bureau intends to examine some of the areas of harsh treatment like the lack of food during her seven days based on her media statement on her release. What she gone through several hours in the wee hours of Friday until she arrived at a destination in a Police Station at 4.30 a.m., as reported is subject to sort of unofficial ‘torturous’ moments. Was she arrested for her ‘protection’ like the Sin Chew’s reporter? Personally, I had a strange and disturbing experience with a taxi driver in Johor Baru where I paid RM40 for two hours of familarisation round trip about noon time there but the driver was chanting in unknown irritating language throughout the trip in 1996. Why should two police vehicles with a few professional Policemen move around Kuala Lumpur without traffic jam for about 4 hours at public money carrying Terasa? Was she accompanied by a Police woman?

    Also the Muslim Consumers Association of Malaysia (PPIM) and the Islamic NGOs, Heritage Associations, Malay Cultural Organisations and Related Bodies Cooperation Network (Pewaris) Sunday lodged police reports against Selangor state executive councillor Teresa Kok over her alleged act to prohibit the “azan” call to prayer at mosques and surau in Kota Damansara, Sri Serdang and Puchong Jaya.

    Would the Police charge those who had lodged such questionable Police Reports for false police reports as the facts of the case have been distorted.
