There’s several actions already in place to campaign for Raja Petra Kamaruddin’s freedom and the abolishment of the ISA. You may join one or all of them!

1. The ABOLISH ISA MOVEMENT’s weekly candle light vigil:

2. Malaysia Civil Rights Actions: A call for a synchronized action to help RPK.

3. Yellow ribbon campaign – ribbons to be distributed in Holy Spirit Cathedral this weekend. “Hoping that people will tie it on their car ariels and motorbikes. Let us make a statement on what the rakyat feel about the ISA. Please pass this message around so that more people can do the ribbons for distribution” (from the organiser).

4. Candle light vigil (Venue : Dataran Merdeka , Kuala Lumpur, Date : Saturday, 27th September 2008, Time: 7.00pm) – contact person: Sambulingam Wisvalingam, National Hindraf Coordination team).

And if you think this is NOT enough, look inside, sample letter for you to send to the relevant I (could be individuals or idiots!).

A freelance web developer is working on a website to allow anybody to log in and send a protest letter, where the number of senders (to the intended destination or email addresses) can be collated by the site with statistic (will furnish the URL once it is done).

Isn’t that fabulous?

5. Sample letter to be fax/posted/faxed/email to the YDP Agung, PM, DPM, Home Minister, etc. (by SUARAM/Abolish ISA Movement):

Re: Release Mr. Raja Petra Kamaruddin and All Other ISA Detainees Immediately!

We are writing to you to register our strongest condemnation and protest against the use of the Internal Security Act (ISA) on Raja Petra Kamaruddin an editor of popular news portal Malaysia Today. Under the ISA, a person can be detained without trial indefinitely. It violates important and fundamental rights such as the right to be presumed innocent before proven guilty, the right to an open and fair trial and the right to legal counsel.

We strongly condemn and protest against your action of arbitrarily signing the two-year detention orders for Raja Petra and all other ISA detainees currently in detention. The government must respect the right to trial and abolish the ISA and all forms of detention without trial; charge all detainees in an open court. Failing to do so, the detainees must be released immediately and unconditionally.

‘Preventive detention’ in Malaysia disregards human rights and violate the safeguards enshrined in the Federal Constitution and international human rights law. The continued use of the ISA only goes to show that despite being a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Malaysian government pays scant respect to human rights.

All forms of detention without trial must be abolished!

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely yours,

6. Haris Ibrahim @ People’s Parliament is suggesting a HARTAL. Seems like a GREAT idea!

I will add as more information trickle in. And if you see my earlier post (10 things to do for RPK et all now), there’s lots of ideas, but what you have do now, people, is get it going (do one or all of the suggested actions, whichever you feel passionate about) going, don’t wait for anyone, do it yourselves, we have no generals, only soldiers here!

And we’ll FIGHT till the end.

    i think the silent muslims really need to be more vokal and speak up.

    Read this from the online version of The Star…

    Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin was detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) because his articles ridiculed Islam, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.
    “The police recommended his detention and after going through the papers, the Government was satisfied there were strong grounds for him to be further detained for two years.

    “His articles could arouse anger among Muslims,” Syed Hamid said, adding that he signed the detention order on Monday after he was satisfied with the reasons to detain Raja Petra.

    si botak shit hamid has rediculed and humiliated islam. he has made the people; not only malaysians but the foreigners as well to misunderstood islam as radical and intoleable. as a result, people would have a misperception to see muslims as almost rigid and violate.

    if the muslims are really respect and love their religion, i beg all the gentle and silent muslims to come out and make a strong protest against shit hamid of abusing islam. this is a serious matter.

    and where the heck is that PKR MP who lead the protest in front of the bar council when we needed him the most right now!!!

    only muslims and malays can fail the ‘draconian’ UMNO!!!

    How about boycotting the Petrol Stations that are owned by UMNO’s cronies?????????
    I have heard that there are thousands of them all over malaysia!!!!
    Anyone got any details on this?????

  7. Batu Ferringhi says:

    Susan, I will be at the candle light vigil this Friday at 9.30pm at the Dewan Seri Pinang. I have made arrangement to buy 50 Anti-ISA badges from SUARAM Penang Chapter and distribute them FOC to anyone I meet and this will be done weekly. This is the least I can do!

  8. BobbyNZ says:

    Doesnt it make you wonder how people can so easily be fooled by a phoney maverick????

  9. Batu Ferringhi says:

    Devan, one way of telling if the petrol kiosks belong to those UMNOputras is by :

    i. go to the really old, husband-wife operated kiosks because these were set up long time ago,

    ii. avoid the ‘green colored’ ones because 9 out of 10 are alleged to be owned by these cronies.

  10. Drachen says:

    To BobbyNZ,

    I’d rather be fooled by RPK than join a cynic like you.

    To everybody else,

    I’ve just added Free RPK to the signature of all my emails.

    Can anyone verify whether the comment of indianputra (to the MT republished ‘The Edge’ interview with tunku aziz ibrahim) to the effect that ” it is confirmed that rpk will be released before hari raya” has any foundation or is it just malicious psych-ops by bn to raise false hope among citizens ?

  12. lucia says:

    er… don’t think the friday weekly candle light vigil is organised by aliran but it is organised by GMI peanng – gerakan mansuhkan ISA (abolish ISA movement). i had posted it up last week and i believe anil netto (also in aliran) had also posted it up and mentioned it being organised by GMI. well… perhaps a number of aliran members are in GMI (i know a number of suaram members are in GMI), hence people thought organise by aliran or suaram. anyway, sorry, this is just being picky… doesn’t really matter who is the organiser eh.

    i have been wearing the anti ISA badge (the big red one, not the small black one) all along. got it from a colleague who got it from dr jeyekumar. for the first time today, a stranger approached me when he saw me wearing the badge and asked me where he can get the badge! this is a positive sign indeed – people now care about the call for abolishing ISA. so long i wore it out on the streets/dept. stores, people only stare at me, nobody asked me anything.

    i’ll be attending this friday’s candle-lgiht vigil too. might be there early to help GMI sell or distribute items.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said Wednesday (24 Sept) Pakatan Rakyat will send a letter to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin on the transfer of power from Barisan Nasional to the opposition pact, and the request to convene a special parliament session.

    Anwar, who is Permatang Pauh member of parliament and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor, also reiterated his claim that he had sufficient majority to form the new government.

    “The letter to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is about a peaceful transfer of power and a special parliament session to table a no-confidence motion against the prime minister.

    “We are still demanding that the prime minister respect the people’s rights to choose us,” he told reporters after attending the proceeding related to his sodomy case at the Sessions Court in Jalan Duta here Wednesday.

    Anwar was accompanied by wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is PKR president and their daughter Nurul Izzah, who is Lembah Pantai MP.

    On his letter asking the prime minister to convene the special parliament session, Anwar said Abdullah did not give any response except for a statement he made through the media that he had rejected it.

    Anwar also refused to reveal the names of the MPs whom he claimed to be crossing over to Pakatan Rakyat.

    “I have the majority. The deadline (to form the new government) is no longer an issue,” he said.

    On my part I have boycotted Bernama (TV, Newspaper, Radio Station), Petronas, the Star, TV3 for months now. From today, I will wear the yellow ribbon on body, tie it to my car and drive with headlights on, and make sure a candle is lit 24 hours in my house…and I will continue until they release RPK and all the ISA detainees….May you rot in hell SHIT BOTAK AL BLUR!

    B. Ferringhi,

    Thanks Lucia, will change it to GMI.

    Why cares? Nice idea 🙂

  17. BobbyNZ says:

    I do not rejoice RPK is in prison but I rejoice there is less one malicious slanderer to cause trouble in the country I love very much!

  18. Joe Rakyat says:

    Susan, with all due respect, I think that Malaysians should focus their energy and efforts on a single activity to show support for RPK and the rest of the other ISA detainees, and also to call for the abolishment of the ISA. Too many activities just waters down the focus and impact of the message. Social activists and NGO leaders need to come together and start a single coordinated campaign for this purpose. A good start would be a single coordinated letter-writing campaign to protest RPK’s detention. JR

  19. matt says:

    Hey you sheep banger at least RPK did it with his head held high unlike yours which is still trapped between the sheeps legs.

  20. ISA Supporter says:

    I concur with BobbyNZ lah. How can the govt not do anything about RPK? Then many others will follow and habis lah our country!. Let bygone be bygone lah. Anwar was imprisoned for corruption in 1998 so what’s all the talk about other leaders being corrupt?

  21. Chan says:

    Badawi must be sent to prison for corruption – together with khairy, najib and rosmah.

  22. PAS says:

    So ironic. You all really make this anti-ISA looks so hypocrite. Yes go on fight for only RPK, fight for all important people being captured, just don’t care about unimportant captives, like my PAS friends, so many years in Kamunting…

    Go on, you all are just make it so individualistic. I’m sad… make another joint, make many small joints to fight ISA. Go on… I doubt you will succeed. Sorry to say that.

    Susan, you are such a hypocrite, your fight for ISA is only for RPK. You don’t care about other captives. Yes you have that 60+ captives mentioned in your article, but I doubt you are that sincere.

    Good bye.

  23. machitam says:

    In Kuala Lumpur, former de facto Law Minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said he felt sorry for Raja Petra, adding that Malaysia “needs more people like him”.

    “Instead of detaining him, we should encourage more people to speak out. If he has done wrong, then charge him,” he said.

    there must be a reason, not a thousand reason of why BN detaining RPK under ISA. They have thousand reason(but lack evidences) to charge RPK in court.

    I am most certain that the reason is because RPK has evidences to implicate najis and bodohwi.

    We call upon all the Rakyats of Malaysia to sign a Petition to be sent to the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to release RPK from his detention under ISA because there is a hidden agenda of a conspiracy of using his detention to silence him so that he could not further release more evidences against the real C4 murderers of Altantuya because all the accused persons were all fall guys of the real murderers because they all did not have a real & logical motive to commit the murder of the Mongolian Lady.


    It is very easy to generate Police Reports against DSAI by using Penang Mamak Umno’s 25 Members headed by Wan Abidin Zain, who claimed to be non-partisan, using their uneasiness that most Penangites will now be boycotting Nasi Kandar one more round???

    It is very Sad that the legacy of Malaysian Independence is reduced by this Moronic Flip Flop Coward into great disrepute and a laughing stock of the whole world and knowing very well that the UMNO Government has technically collapsed and they have no locus standi to govern but yet he has decided to shamelessly still cling on to power via dubious means like hiding himself via using of the ISA and we cannot imagine that the Malaysia Moronic Flip Flop Coward has now stoop so low and using the Police Deputy IGP as his willing tools especially the Deputy IGP’s clearly taking side as the Police must be neutral and should be not politiking for him.

    The Coward Moronic Flip Flop Chicken dare not meet DSAI face to face to settle matters but chose hiding under the use of ISA and that is what you have as a disgraceful cowardice leader for UMNO.

    After 51 years MALAYSIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE but backwards because of the Oppression from the UMNO goons’ divide and rule fear tactics the Rakyats have matured & you must see all this coming because All The Rakyats of Malaysia are all fed-up & can no longer with-stand the hypocrisies, bullshits, lies and deceits of these UMNO Clowns now in Power ok???

    We urge all BN Components MPs with a conscience to do the necessary to make possible a New Malaysia for all Rakyats of Malaysia so that all our children and their children & their children’s children’s future will be safe and secured in the Country we all love and not be intimidated by those UMNO Clowns now in power with their oppressive & fear tactics and in the verge of making Malaysia a Police State if left unchecked otherwise. Save RPK as he is the midst of a conspiracy of the real murderers of Altantuya to silence him for good, instead of being C4ed he could be poisoned and worse off if he is on hunger strike by himself. The Acting IGP is defending the Police position after being made the tools of UMNO’s fear tactics & so he is now making lame excuses for being the Stringed Puppet to be easily manipulated by the Puppeteer, power that be. The Deputy IGP must be held personally responsible for the safety of RPK who has been heard to be tortured otherwise he must be made to eat his own medicine come the New Dawn of Malaysia.

    Moronic PeeM and Botak Home Minister last minutes’ attempts to cling on power by using the fear tactics of using the ISA at their whims and fancies selectively against dissent & tried to deny their own actions as they now have no balls to face the wrath of the all the Rakyats of Malaysia. ONE DAY THE MORONIC BOTAK AND FLIP FLOP AND C4 MUST BE MADE TO TASTE THEIR OWN MEDICINE OK?

    All Rakyats of Malaysia will see to that these Clowns will be thrown out soon come the New Dawn of Malaysia & that all Rakyats of Malaysia will welcome the New Malaysia on Malaysia Day 916, 2008 for a Malaysia for All Malaysians.

    Justice MUST BE DONE for Altantuya and for all those detained under ISA without the trial nor the rights of appeal. Light-up a Candle in the Lantern of the Mid-Autumn Festival for them all to usher in the NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA COME 916, 2008

  34. ktteokt says:

    Maintaining and still using the ISA is against civil liberty as the ISA was originally formulated to act against COMMUNISTS. And it was the BN government who announced years ago that the COMMUNISTS in Malaysia has put down their weapons and returned to society! So why is the ISA still being maintained and now being ABUSED on innocent citizens?

  35. Kenny Gan says:

    If the only thing that Badawi did for Malaysia is to abolish the ISA, he would be well remembered by Malaysians. As of now, he has no achievement to his name. We already have Bapa Kemerdekaan, Bapa Pembangunan, Bapa Perpaduan and Bapa Permodenan for each successive PM. What will Pak Lah be known as? Bapa Mertua Khairy?

    Malek: Pengalaman ngeri sebagai tahanan ISA

    Abdul Malek Hussin, bekas tahanan ISA (Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri), tidak akan dapat melupakan buat selama-lamanya peristiwa buruk yang telah berlaku ke atas dirinya sembilan tahun yang lalu. Abdul Malek, 51, telah menang dalam samannya terhadap kerajaan kerana menangkap dan menyeksanya pada tahun 1998.

    Mahkamah juga menganugerahkan gantirugi RM2.5 juta kepadanya. Beliau memfailkan saman tersebut pada Mac 1999, terhadap anggota cawangan khas, Borhan Daud; Ketua Polis ketika itu, Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor dan kerajaan Malaysia. Abdul Malek yang juga pengerusi badan pemantau Pilihanraya Bebas dan Adil Malaysia (Mafrel) ditahan di bawah ISA sembilan tahun yang lalu.

    Beliau menceritakan kepada Malaysiakini setiap saat pahit yang dilaluinya sewatku menjadi tahanan ISA.

    Berikut adalah petikan temubual beliau

    Sudah sembilan tahun berlalu, bolehkah anda menceritakan apa yang berlaku, apakah yang telah mereka lakukan terhadap anda, dan perasaan anda ketika itu?

    Apabila (bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) dipecat oleh kerajaan kerana dituduh terbabit dalam aktiviti tidak bermoral, maka ramai rakyat yang tidak puashati dengan ketidakadilan (penangkapan Anwiar), dan sebagai seorang rakyat, saya menyokong pejuangan untuk menegakkan keadilan untuk Anwar.

    Saya adalah antara mereka yang tidak senang dengan cara kerajaan pimpinan Dr Mahathir mengguna dan menyalahgunakan kuasa ketika itu, untuk memecat Anwar dan saya mengambil keputusan untuk menunjukkan sokongan (kepada Anwar).
    Saya terbabit dalam gerakan reformasi sejak hari pertamanya lagi pada 4 September 1998.

    Selepas penangkapan Anwar, saya telah mengambil inisiatif untuk menganjurkan satu perhimpunan besar-besaran untuk menuntut pembebasan Anwar dan peletakan jawatan Dr Mahathir dan Ketua Polis Negara ketika itu, Abdul Rahim Noor.

    Saya kemudiannya mengetuai perhimpunan di Masjid Negara pada 25 September, lima hari selepas Anwar ditangkap. Saya ditangkap di rumah saya di Ampang pada kira-kira jam 10-11 malam.

    Saya pulang (ke rumah) dengan menaiki kereta yang dipandu oleh seorang rakan. Dia menurunkan saya kira-kira 200 meter dari rumah saya dan polis menangkap saya ketika saya berada di pintu pagar.

    Saya digari dan dipaksa membuka pintu pagar rumah saya oleh pasukan polis yang diketuai oleh ASP Borhan Daud. Mula-mula dia memaksa saya membuka (pintu rumah) dan tentunya saya bertanya, “Mengapa saya digari?” dan dia berkata, saya ditahan di bawah ISA.

    Saya kemudiannya bertanya, “Mengapa anda perlu menggari tangan saya?” dan saya bertanya kepadanya “Apakah sebab saya ditahan”, (dan dia berkata) “ISA” dan dia menjawab seperti robot, semuanya adalah (di bawah) ISA. Dia kemudiannya berkata, dia mahu menggeledah rumah saya, dan saya bertanya mana warannya.

    Malah, saya bertanya waran untuk menangkap saya di bawah ISA. Dia berkata, ianya tidak perlu dan saya bertanya kepadanya mengapa, dan dia berkata, ISA, dan dia berkata, saya sepatutnya tahu. Dia mahu menggeledah rumah saya dan saya bertanya di mana warannya, dan sekali lagi, dia berkata, ianya tidak perlu dan saya bertanya kepadanya mengapa dan dia berkata ISA.

    Saya memanggil anak-anak saya dan keluarga saya membuka pintu dan anggota polis masuk dengan memakai kasut, terus ke tingkat bawah dan tingkat atas rumah saya. Mereka kemudiannya masuk ke bilik mentelaah saya, serta menggeledah dan memeriksa semua dokumen saya.

    Mereka kemudian masuk ke bilik tidur saya di mana isteri dan anak-anak saya sedang tidur. Isteri saya terkejut dan bertanya kepada saya apa yang berlaku dan saya menunjukkan kepadanya (tangan yang bergari) dan apabila dia bertanya mengapa, saya menjawab “ISA”.

    Kemudian, mereka merampas beberapa dokumen dan mereka juga merakamkan dokumen-dokumen tersebut. Selepas 40 minit berada di dalam rumah saya, mereka mengarah saya mengikut mereka. Mereka kemudiannya bertanya di mana kereta saya. Borhan memaksa saya menunjukkan kepadanya di mana kereta saya dan saya berkata, saya dihantar pulang oleh seorang rakan dan saya turun kira-kira 200 meter (dari rumah).

    Saya menunjukkan kepada Borhan tempat saya turun dari kereta. Rakan saya sudah beredar dari situ. (Borhan) naik marah dengan jawapan saya sehingga dia bertindak menampar saya di situ juga dan sakitnya dapat dirasai hingga ke hari ini. Saya rasa saya telah kehilangan lebih 40-50 peratus deria pendengaran di telinga kiri saya.

    Apabila mahkamah diberitahu mengenai perkara itu, Borhan menafikannya. Selepas itu, dia memaksa saya masuk ke dalam kereta, bukan kereta polis, ia kereta biasa. Saya diarah memakai (kacamata) tertentu bervisi kelabu, tetapi kemudiannya saya menyedari bingkai di sini (sebelah kiri) telah patah dan saya memberitahu mereka yang ianya telah patah dan mereka mengarahkan saya (menanggalkan) kacamata saya dan salah seorang pegawai (membuka) baju-t hitam yang dipakainya dan menyerkupnya menutup kepala saya.

    Anda bayangkanlah bau baju t-shirt itu yang agaknya telah dipakainya sejak pagi hingga tengah malam. Ia amat busuk dan mereka memaksa saya masuk ke dalam kereta. Saya melutut dan diarah supaya tidak melihat ke mana-mana kerana mereka tidak mahu saya tahu ke mana mereka membawa saya. Kemudiannya mereka membawa saya pergi dari situ dan kira-kira beberapa minit kemudiannya, kereta tersebut berhenti. Saya tidak tahu di mana.

    Mereka kemudiannya membawa saya naik anak tangga sebuah bangunan yang kemudiannya saya mendapat tahu (Ibupejabat Kontinjen Polis Kuala Lumpur). Mereka membawa saya ke sebuah bilik dan saya diarah menandatangani (sekeping) kertas yang disediakan oleh Borhan yang menyatakan bahawa saya ditahan di bawah ISA, jadi Borhan adalah pegawai yang melakukan tangkapan. Selepas itu mereka mengarahkan saya menanggalkan pakaian – menanggalkan baju dan seluar saya.

    Saya ingat ok kerana saya tahu tahanan ISA akan diberi pakaian tahanan khas (iaitu) berwarna biru. Jadi saya ingat saya akan diberi pakaian tersebut. (Selepas) saya menanggalkan kesemua pakaian, tiba-tiba seorang pegawai menggari tangan saya dari belakang dengan kuat sekali, dan di situ terdapat enam hingga lapan orang pegawai di depan saya dalam sebuah bilik kecil di tingkat satu.

    Saya digari dan mereka menutup mata saya dengan dua (keping) kain hitam dan saya bingung sepenuhnya. Saya tidak tahu siapakah mereka, jadi saya mengagak mereka semua adalah pegawai yang melakukan tangkapan yang diketuai oleh Borhan.

    Kemudian Borhan menendang dan menumbuk saya dan saya boleh dengar suaranya betul-betul di depan saya kerana dia yang menangkap saya dan saya boleh kenal suaranya. Seorang pegawai akan mengambil satu objek keras dan memukul kaki kanan saya, seorang pegawai lagi akan memukul kaki kiri saya dan mereka kemudiannya menumbuk muka saya.

    Saya kemudiannya kena ‘flying kick’, ‘side kick’ dan mereka kemudiannya memaksa saya berdiri. Sejurus kemudian saya terjatuh dan tidak sedarkan diri untuk pertama kali dan mereka menuangkan air dan memaksa saya berdiri lagi dan saya jatuh pengsan sekali lagi – semuanya sebanyak lima kali. Dan saya juga mengira dengan jari saya berapa kali saya dipukul […] semuanya 63 kali.

    Selepas itu saya tidak tahan lagi dan tidak sedarkan diri. Itulah yang dapat saya ingat ketika masih sedar… Salah satu pukulan itu amat kuat sekali dan tiba-tiba kain yang menutup mata saya terjatuh dan betul-betul di depan saya adalah (Abdul) Rahim Noor yang memakai sarung (tinju) berwarna merah. Dia memakai (baju) batik Indonesia, berseluar hitam dan kasut berkilat warna perang.

    Saya masih ingat dan saya menceritakannya secara terperinci di mahkamah. Dan kerana (kain penutup mata) terjatuh, saya terkejut dan dia juga terkejut kerana saya dapat mengenalinya dan dia terus beredar, begitu juga dengan semua pegawai lain yang turut beredar dari situ kerana tidak mahu mereka dikenali.

    Kemudian mereka pusing saya menghala ke dinding dan sekali lagi menutup mata dan saya terus dibelasah hingga tidak sedarkan diri. Apabila saya sedar semula, waktunya masih belum jam 4 pagi. Mereka mengarah saya pergi ke bilik lain yang hawa dingin dibuka dengan kuat. Saya masih bertelanjang dan badan saya sakit akibat dipukul. Penghawa dingin itu terletak di tengah-tengah bilik dan setiap beberapa minit mereka mencurah air sejuk ke kepala saya.

    Dalam keadaan anda telah diseksa dan cedera, dicurahkan pula dengan air sejuk dan saya menggeletar kesejukan. Mereka bertanya sama ada saya sejuk dan saya menjawab iya dan mereka akan mencurah lebih banyak lagi air sehingga kira-kira jam 4.30 pagi. Mereka kemudian berhenti dan tidak lagi bertanya sebarang soalan.

    Semasa diseksa mereka, Borhan bertanya kepada saya sama ada saya dahaga dan saya menjawab “tentulah dahaga”. Kemudian secara tiba-tiba seseorang memegang saya dari belakang dan seorang lagi menggunakan jarinya untuk membuka mulut saya seluas-luasnya. Mereka kemudiannya menuang cecair yang rasanya hanyir dan kotor, ke dalam mulut saya. Ia adalah air kencing dan mereka memberitahu saya ia adalah air kencing. Air kencing mereka, bukan air kencing saya. Mereka bergilir-gilir kencing dan secara paksa menuang kira-kira dua tin air kencing mereka.

    Bila mereka bertanya sama ada saya lapar atau tidak, saya jawab “Tentulah saya lapar”. Borhan meminta pegawainya menyediakan tahi anjing untuk saya. Ia dekat dengan mulut saya, saya dapat menghidu baunya.

    Dan dia mengugut saya yang dia akan menggunakan penyuntik yang mengandungi virus HIV dan menyuntiknya ke badan saya kerana saya telah berkata kepadanya “Lebih baik awak bunuh saya. Apa gunanya? Apa yang awak cuba buktikan? Apa yang awak buat di sini? Mengapa awak begitu kejam,” saya bertanya kepada mereka (Dia berkata) “Oh awak mahu mati, oh jadi kita akan bunuh awak secara perlahan-lahan, kita akan masukkan virus HIV ke badan awak”. Tentulah mereka tidak melakukannya.

    Dan kemudiannya selepas kira-kira jam 5 pagi, mereka berhenti membelasah saya. Saya rasa mereka juga keletihan dan pulang ke rumah. Pada 26 September, pada waktu tengahari, saya dibawa ke Bukit Aman dan dimasukkan ke tempat kurungan dan hanya dapat melihat matahari pada hari ke-28 penahanan saya.

    Maka, jika anda bertanyakan perasaan saya mengenainya, (ia) sangat kejam dan tidak berperi kemanusiaan. (Polis) bukan manusia. Saya rasa binatang ada rasa belas kasihan. Malah anjing pun kenal tuannya dan tidak menggigit orang lain. Mereka lebih terusk daripada anjing.

    Jika orang kata mereka adalah anjing kerajaan, saya rasa pada m masa itu, mereka lebih teruk daripada anjing.

    Bagaimanakah anda dilayan di sana (di Bukit Aman)?

    Saya tidak dibenarkan menghubungi sesiapa.

    Beberapa hari kemudiannya sebelum hari ke-28 (dalam tahanan) , mereka bertanya sama ada saya mahu berjumpa dengan keluarga saya. Sudah tentulah, sebelum berjumpa dengan keluarga, mereka akan mengatur satu sesi khas supaya saya tidak menceritakan apa-apa tentang apa yang terjadi pada diri saya, supaya tidak membayangkan yang saya telah diseksa dan supaya menunjukkan kepada keluarga saya yang semuanya ok dan supaya meyakinkan keluarga saya supaya (tidak memfailkan) permohonan habeas corpus atau saya tidak akan dibebaskan.

    Dan saya memberitahu pegawai penyiasat saya di Bukit Aman bahawa saya telah diseksa di IPK dan saya mahu membuat laporan polis terhadap Borhan, mereka berkata, “Tidak, kamu tidak perlu berbuat demikian – kami telah mengambil tindakan terhadap Borhan”. Sedangkan ianya tidak benar.

    Saya tidak diberi peluang untuk membuat laporan, tidak diberi peluang untuk bertemu peguam saya, tidak dapat hubungi keluarga dan saya hanya diberi rawatan perubatan beberapa hari kemudiannya di Bukit Aman. Saya memberitahu doktor dan beliau memeriksa saya dan ia disahkan dalam laporan perubatan mengenai lebam-lebam di kaki kiri, kaki kanan, di bahagian perut dan terdapat kecederaan.

    Saya mengadu kepada Dr Vasantha Ponniah mengenai apa yang berlaku terhadap diri saya dan beliau telah memberi keterangan di mahkamah mengenai keadaan saya berdasarkan kepada kecederaan pada diri saya.

    Metodologi cawangan khas ialah memberi layanan paling keras pada hari pertama sebagai satu ingatan kepada tahanan bahawa mereka akan berdepan dengan keadaan yang lebih teruk lagi sekiranya gagal memberi kerjasama. Ia lebih berbentuk psikologi.

    Dan sudah tentulah di Bukit Aman, ia telahpun diinstitusi dari segi bagaimana mereka mengendalikan tahanan. Saya dimasukkan ke dalam bilik kurungan seorang diri, tiada cahaya matahari, saya tidak tahu sama ada ianya pagi, saya tidak tahu langsung.

    Pada hari ke-28, ketika dikunjungi keluarga semasa saya dibawa dari Bukit Aman ke IPM, saya begitu menghargai cahaya matahari, ianya amat indah sekali. Cukup indah.

    Bagaimanakan anda disoalsiasat?

    Saya disoalsiasat selama 17 hari di tingkat tiga bangunan tersebut. Mereka bertanya soalan dari pagi, tengahari, petang, sehingga malam, dan kadang-kadang hingga lewat malam. Pada satu ketika apabila mereka tidak puas hati dengan apa yang berlaku di luar di mana orang ramai masih berkumpul di Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (dan) di Kampung Baru, mereka tidak senang lalu, memanggil saya lewat malam untuk disoalsiasat hingga awal pagi.

    Sewaktu disoalsiasat oleh pegawai Bukit Aman, soalan-soalan yang mereka tanya setiap hari, soalan mengenai gerakan reformasi, mengenai Anwar Ibrahim, hubungannya dengan orang ini dan orang itu.

    Kemudian Nurul Izzah menemui (Presiden Filipina ketika itu, Joseph) Estrada di Filipina dan (bekas Setiausaha Negara Amerika) Madeline Albright. Saya berada di dalam dan semua itu berlaku di luar sana, dan mereka bertanya mengenai Gerak yang ditubuhkan, dan mengenai pembaharuan politik, mengenai PAS, mengenai sama ada ISA patut dimansuhkan atau tidak.

    Saya rasa tidak perlu anda menangkap saya di bawah ISA untuk bertanya soalan-soalan tersebut. Mereka menafikan saya peralatan yang ada sekiranya mereka dapati saya tidak bekerjasama sepenuhnya. (Mereka akan) mengambil balik tilam atau bantal.

    Selepas dikunjungi keluarga, mereka bagi tahu saya yang saya hanya akan ditahan selama sebulan dan mereka akan membebaskan saya. (Mereka kata) jika saya tidak diberi perakuan untuk dibebaskan, maka mereka akan melanjutkan tahanan dan ianya berterusan sehingga hari ke-57.

    Ada juga hari-hari di mana mereka tidak berbuat apa-apa. Mereka akan menghantar makanan dan pada masa itu, saya mendapat makanan, ia seperti nasi bungkus bersama ikan yang berulat. Itu bermakna, ianya dilakukan dengan sengaja. Maksud saya kami adalah tahanan dan makanan ini sepatutnya disediakan oleh kerajaan dan ini bermakna negara menyediakan makanan busuk kepada saya.

    Apa yang berlaku selepas anda dibebaskan?

    Saya dibebaskan pada 21 November dan tertakluk kepada pengawasan cawangan khas yang memantau aktiviti-aktiviti saya.

    Saya perlu melaporkan kepada mereka dan malah mereka mengugut bahawa saya boleh ditangkap semula, saya mesti bekerjasama dengan mereka dan psikologinya ialah mereka mempunyai kuasa untuk menangkap saya semula. Jadi, wujud rasa takut yang saya akan ditangkap semula. Saya mengambil masa yang lama untuk mengembalikan kekuatan dan keberanian untuk membuat laporan polis dan saya membuat keputusan tersebut pada bulan Mac (1999).

    Apa yang mempengaruhi saya adalah apabila kerajaan mengambil keputusan untuk menubuhkan Suruhanjaya Diraja (untuk menyiasat kes mata lebam Anwar) apabila kita membaca mengenai testimoni oleh Dr Vasantha Ponniah. Kemudian saya teringat, “Baiklah, itulah wanita yang merawat saya”. Jadi, saya ingat adalah sedikit bantuan.

    Saya ingat dengan penubuhan Suruhanjaya Diraja itu, akan wujud ruang untuk membuat aduan. Sejak dari itu, semasa saya disoalbalas di mahkamah, mereka bertanya kepada saya mengapa saya mengambil masa yang begitu lama.
    Ini bukanlah satu kemalangan jalanraya. Ini adalah sesuatu di mana anda telah diseksa. Anda perlu untuk membina semula keberanian.

    Adakah anda takut? Adakah anda pernah berasa seperti telah putus asa?

    Saya cuba supaya tidak kelihatan takut walaupun (sebenarnya) saya amat takut sekali.

    Saya rasa (anggota) cawangan khas berada di mana-mana sahaja. (Saya rasa) terancam tetapi untuk pulih semula, anda perlu berjumpa dengan orang, anda perlu bercakap dengan orang. Lama kelamaan, saya mula menceritakan kepada orang apa yang berlaku ketika dalam tahanan.

    Mereka amat terkejut. Kemudian rakan-rakan telah meyakinkan saya untuk bercakap mengenainya dan pada bulan Februari saya menceritakan pengalaman tersebut dalam satu majlis anjuran Gerak (Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia untuk Keadilan) oleh (bekas Presiden PAS) Datuk Fadzil Noor di Dewan Perhimpunan Cina Kuala Lumpur-Selangor pada Februari 1999.

    Saya memperolehi semula keberanian saya. Dan anda perlu faham bahawa anda boleh dituduh membuat laporan palsu. Saya terpaksa menyediakan laporan polis yang panjang dan begitu terperinci serta satu afidavit untuk memfail saman sivil.

    Bagaimanapun perasaan keluarga anda mengenai semua itu?

    Mereka sudah biasa yang apa saya lakukan. Mereka menyokong aktiviti-aktiviti saya. Malah, isteri dan anak-anak saya sudah tahu mengenai keazaman saya untuk melaporkan aktiviti-aktiviti demi hak rakyat, aktiviti politik dan aktiviti sosial.

    You used words like “malacious slanderer” and “country that I love very much ” as if you are knowledgeable on both counts!

    Firstly, may I ask if you are in fact a Malaysian citizen residing in Malaysia? If you can respond to this question honestly, then, I shall comment on this point once you responded. If not, then, please make sure you are well informed of the existing situation in Malaysia before penning any more comments.

    Regarding the “malacious slanderer” comment of yours, on what basis did you conclude that what was written by RPK was not true or accurate?? Do you know what being detained under the ISA means? Do you know why he was detained under ISA and not under any of the other more appropriate laws available for the offence as charged?

    If your answer is no, then, please refrain from using terms such as malacious slanderer on RPK!

    I would go one step further and tell you that that term (malacious slanderer) is more suited to people like you. Until and unless you know all the facts of the matter of the case, to identify a person a malacious slanderer is pure stupidity.

    In my case, attaching the same term to you is not being stupid because you have already conclusively proven yourself to be one by the very act of malaciously slandering a person who you have not conclusively proven that what he had done or said so far, is, in fact malacious or slanderous.

    The reason why ISA was used is to ensure that RPK is not given a chance to prove what he had written is correct and substantiated. All RPK wants is an opportunity to reveal the evidences he has but was denied the opportunity.

    ISA is and will never be necessary in dealing with its citizens. It is only useful to those who wants to silence and deprive a person of their rights to justice or those who do not want the truth to be revealed. We have sufficient laws to deal with all eventualities relating to its citizens!

    Anybody who is jailed under the Draconian act of ISA, with freedom striped off, will definitely have no appetite to eat even the most delicious food served.

    If the 2.4 Million Dollar man who was caught pants down in Australia is put inside the prison under ISA and the same kind of food being served to him, it will also become “cat food” to him.

    So, to those racists and evil power brokers out there, do not think you flurs are smart ass by talking about “food” in prison.

    One day, all of you flurs will also be put into the prison for all the evil deeds and treason you have done. The Rakyat will never forget and the Al-Mighty will show you who is the GREATEST.

    Watch out, you flurs will be punished one day and all your ill gotten wealth will be taken away by the Al-Mighty and be returned to the Rakyat.

    So, better TAUBAT before it is too late.

    I will respond. I had months of blogging on RPK’s “Malaysia Today” and my professional comments were deleted contrary to his claims of “No Holds Barred”. I soon learnt from my professional friends of the same treatment. His political agenda became obvious. His “malicious slanders” with no substantiation were meant to cause contentions amongst the Rakyat.

    And yes, I do love my country Malaysia very much. Thanks to that TRAITOR who abetted with the CROOKS to destroy our economy in 1997/8, I was forced to seek “economic asylum” in NZ and dont worry, I am enjoying a very comfortable lifestyle here because I work hard and I work smart. I urge you all to rebuilt the Malaysian economy with all your time and resources instead of wasting them on these 2 good for nothing characters who are bringing irrepute to the country and worsening the economic climate in Malaysia that is already affected by the “Credit Crunch”.

    And that 10cent fuel reduction??? Shit, my petrol consumption is about RM350.00 per month nowadays. Sharir Samad has admitted not long that the rebate of RM625.00 to vehicle entitling up to 2000cc is a farce. Imagine, a Toyoya Camry (1800cc) valued at RM150K, the owner also entitle to a similar rebate as of a Kancil owner? Not to mention how many luxury car they have?

    Good job Scottie. That altered pictures is best to describe RPK now. 🙂

    We are trying to move the country forward. He is doing absolutely nothing but throwing obstacles in our path. Has he been holding a grudge against AI for more than 10 years? Why is he so happy with the status quo? I can only conclude that his relatives here must all be holding cushy positions in MCA and living off the fat of the land.

    By the way, NZ has plenty of problems he should look into. Or is he just squatting there?

    You forget, insensitive, H/P 6, bureaucratic, unimaginative, unresponsive, arrogant, inept and lazy. That’s the norm.

    One example is that a certain malay lad couldn’t be exempted from NS because he has to work to help support his family. Another is the strictly no exemption for Jane Lim after losing a brother, her other sibling, in the manner linked to the NS and reported in the Star. Her father was right to refuse let her go, come what may. Throw the father in under ISA, too? 16 deaths in the fake NS not enough?

Don’t let the infidels have such a happy Raya while some are in detention.

  57. Menyalak-er says:

    Both the ISA and NS should be ‘mansuhkan’ wits. Both put fear into man! Liberty is the freedom of conscience, the freedom from slavery, misguided and despotic rulers. There will never be true ‘unity’ if this form of fedalism-racism-fascism exists.
    If one were to go to any ‘wet-market’ and rub shoulders with the common folk, the sentiment on the ground is quite different. The scenario is that there is deep disappointment with PR and they don’t care much about RPK. Some are even starting to blame DSAI for our economic woes… Its no good to sit in our ‘ivory towers and scream ‘blue murder’ when the man-on-the-street are worrying about filling their stomachs. Its time for PR to review its strategy.

  58. wits0 says:

    “Its time for PR to review its strategy.” – Menyalak-er.

    I should think so, too. Why tie itself to a set time frame so assertively and risked being unable to fulfil it accordingly in the first instance? We want change but not necessarily over-hypes that precedes them. Hollow over-hyping is the BN way. Why inadvertently and unwittingly imitate that sort of hot air? While thinking people may understand some, the common man in the street is unlikely to be similarly so disposed.

  59. zztop says:

    This idiotic baldie toad is a real disgrace and shame to the country. Just to quote one blogger on RPK arrest:-
    “Just as like father, the son also happens to lie to the public with an excuse that is laughable – to protect national interests. But the person who is sent to prison does not carry any guns, merely words that are weapons that terrifies the guilt. The guilty parties are hiding behind what is called religion. It is the holier than thou thing that saved their asses terribly. The Muslim NGOs who have been making noises should have invited Pete to come out and dispute the facts and claims of the Quran. After all, he has been providing Muslim history and the intepretation of the Quran that left many people, even those who claimed to be holier than thou in utter shock.”

    A clear cut example that our Baldie, shit talk toad himself have use religion to save his arse. Hope the peace loving muslim community can come out and protest against this pea brain baldie toad. We cannot have this type of idiot running the country. Our country credibility has been questionable because of stupid actions by these idiots. The matter is serious.
    Meanwhile we have to rally more support to at least put some sense into these numbskull bums running the country.
    Long live RPK!!

    hola guys, menyalak-er and wits0 and friend

    it’s alarming to hear that the rakyat are dissapointed of PR and worst of all to blame DSAI for the economic woes. i can understand that 916 is the expectation. but in a journey, there are always obstacles, which can slow you down. sometimes you can be “derailed”. the ultimate is to reach your destination.

    all this ISA things, sumpah and even oil prices, economics downturn are “excuses” in the tussle. if the ordinary rakyat can be duped….it’s understandable.

    but for us to fall prey to this……on the second thought……

    Many ‘tak sabar lagi’ and because of the economic turbulence which the karat msm blame DSAI, they are confused…
    To maintain the momentum, i think PR must come up with many more ceramahs, not necessarily politico’s but ngo’s etc a’la ‘election’ campaigns.
    The ‘demam’ must continue… Problem is with polis permits, but they must learn to get around it with proper strategy.
    Get the message though not only on blogs.

    Report lodged against Teresa Kok for insulting egg

    KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 24, 2008) : The Seputeh Umno Youth division lodged a police report today against Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, claiming she had insulted the Royal Malaysian Police and the egg, which is an essential food of the underprivileged.

    The division’s deputy head Alawi Dahalin and several other members lodged the report at the Brickfields police station.

    Alawi said he had heard Kok complain about the food she was given while detained under the ISA, at a press conference at the DAP headquarters in Petaling Jaya, shown on the night news on TV on Sept 20, a day after she was released from custody.

    He said Kok had said the food she was served was “fit only for dogs”.

    “By saying this, she had insulted the police and the poor. Eggs are an important food for low-income earners and the poor. As an elected representative of the people she should not have said that,” he said.

    And the expected kneejerk arrogance:

    Mind your own business, Malaysian minister tells colleague
    September 25th, 2008 – 12:45 pm ICT by IANS –

    Kuala Lumpur, Sep 25 (IANS) A Malaysian Indian minister’s resolve to probe the quality of food served to those detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) has earned a reprimand from his senior, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar.Slamming Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department T. Murugiah for implying that those in police custody were not properly fed, Albar said: “Murugiah had better look after his own ministry.”

    “It is not his job … he is the deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Department and if there is anything for him to gripe about, he should bring it to the attention of the prime minister,” Albar said when asked about a memorandum that Murugiah said he would submit to the ministry.

    “I don’t answer to him,” said Albar, adding that the food served to detainees met international standards, The New Straits Times said Thursday.

    The government has detained about 80 people under the stringent ISA. These include five ethnic Indians of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) who staged a protest rally last November.

    They are serving two-year jail terms for seeking to highlight the perceived discrimination of Malaysia’s 2.6 million ethnic Indians, a bulk of them Hindus.

    Murugiah had said he would investigate the matter following ethnic Chinese lawmaker Teresa Kok’s allegations that she was given food that was “little better than dog food” during her recent seven-day detention under the ISA.

    Murugiah, whose portfolio includes the Public Complaints Bureau, said the RM4.50 ($2) allocation provided by the police must be revised to suit the current cost of living.

    Murugiah said he would check the police station where Kok was held and also restaurants from where the food was purchased before submitting his report to the prime minister and home minister.

    He had earlier said: “We want transparency. I’m quite serious about this and I don’t want this to be swept under the carpet.”

    “Detainees must be treated as human beings,” Murugiah added.

    On his scope of power, he had said: “We don’t need to get permission from any ministry. We can just walk in, do the investigation and take immediate action.”

    Can we just say, WTF!?

  63. machitam says:

    and believe me, a lot of them(>60%) believed that Anwar got the figure…..and when you think straight, why not go for it? on the other and, it is not that straight forward when you are dealing with constitution and the unwilling opponent who are full of “machism” behind the veneer…

    come on – prove me wrong and put it up with the other appeals and campaigns that you have here


    M2day by the way has put the “politically incorrect” appeal on its front page for some days now, contrary to what you claim of RPK’s views on it!

  74. Mankok says:

    the latest known number of ISA detainees is 64. Out of these, seven, including Raja Petra, have been detained for less than a year, five for one year, and 19 for two years. More alarmingly, 12 have been detained for three years, five for more than four years, and 11 for more than five years. And incredible as it may sound, five have been held without trial for eight years!

  75. BadEgg says:

    Wahhh.. so nice. Yellow ribbon, candle, T-shirt, emails, badges and etc. If I am to set up a cancer foundation, yes this will at least get peoples’ attention. But I don’t think the target audience, UmmmDope will care much. They are like monkeys (Shut eyes, shut mouth, shut ear ). At least to get their attention, like RPK and the Hindraf, we need to annoy them. If you prefer peace why don’t we throw water balloons at the cronies (at least no one injure) in front of their HQ but NOT to the extreme until we fall at the same level at them (i.e. use mineral water bottle as molotov cocktail…….HAHAHAHA!)

    Good business though. I might as well set up an anti-ISA and Free RPK merchandise for a month and earn millions. ha.
