Free Terasa, Abolish ISA!

From http://blog.limkitsiang.com/2008/09/14/free-teresa-abolish-isa/

Please forward to all Malaysians:

The Barisan Nasional Government has on the 12 September detained Member of Parliament for Seputeh, state assemblywoman for Kinrara as well the senior state executive councillor for Selangor, Sdri Teresa Kok without trial under the draconian Internal Security Act (ISA).

She has been accused of stirring up racial sentiments by instigating residents to petition against mosques in Kinrara and Kota Damansara to lower the volume of their speakers. Teresa has denied these allegations and both mosques have come out to deny these accusations. There is hence absolutely no basis for this arrest. She has already threatened to sue Dr Mohd Khir Toyo, the former Selangor Menteri Besar and Utusan Malaysia for making and publishing these unfounded allegations.

The arrest of Sdri Teresa Kok,Raja Petra Kamaruddin, the Hindraf 5 as well as others is hence arbitrary, high-handed and a mockery of democracy. By labelling Teresa and others as threats to national security without any shred of evidence is a travesty of justice and a gross violation of human rights.

The petitioners hence resolves that the BN government should not use draconian powers under the ISA to cling on to power and demands the immediate and unconditional release of Teresa, Raja Petra, the Hindraf 5 and other detainees. In addition, we the petitioners demand the immediate repeal of the ISA to prevent abuses that oppresses the fundamental liberties of each and every Malaysian.

As loyal and upright Malaysians, sign the petition today!

Racist Got Away with Holiday, Reporter Got Caught under ISA

Sin Chew Daily journalist Tan Hoon Cheng, who reported Ahmad Ismail's "Chinese are Squatters" speech, has been arrested today under the Internal Security Act at 8.30pm at her home in Bukit Mertajam. She is ISA Arrest No.2, after the arrest of Raja Petra (also a Subang Jayan) around 1pm this afternoon.

Miss Tan was merely reporting what she witnessed and heard during the by-election campaign. Ahmad DID SAY what he SAID. No "hidden meaning", no other "background history", no "added salt". She was just REPORTING THE TRUTH!

Dear Government, what did Tan do wrong? Why is she being detained under ISA for telling the truth to the public? The REAL wrong-doer Ahmad Ismail got away with just 3 years suspension of "club membership" after all his RACIST + PROVOCATIVE + NATIONAL-PEACE-THREATENING statements and actions. Why such obvious Double Standard? He is the ONE should be detained under ISA (if ISA is to be used)!

The UMNO-controlled Government is frightening the Reporters so that nobody will report anything WRONG done / said by UMNOputra. This is a pre-emptive measure since there will lots of such statements coming out in the coming UMNO General Meeting. There are many more "Ahmad Ismail" in UMNO will be singing the same song to earn their political support from the UMNOputra for personal gain!

You all must support your fellow worker Tan Hoon Cheng! If you give in again (like most mainstream media do for ages), Malaysian journalists will no longer earn any respect from the Rakyat. Furthermore, you are doing the right thing to report the TRUTH and not fear of the threat. Otherwise, Rakyat will not KNOW what is actually happening!

All Malaysians must support Sin Chew Daily and Tan Hoon Cheng for their courage to report the TRUTH to the Rakyat. We cannot let such TRUTHFUL & NEUTRAL Press goes down again (like happened in 80's). Otherwise, we will continue as we were before March-8th : we only know what Government (Barisan Nasional) wants us to know, unless you are internet-savvy (which 75% Malaysian population are not).

We urge all Subang Jayans & all Malaysians to support Sin Chew with any constructive method you can. If you are not sure what to do, you can at least do the following:

Starting from today, buy Sin Chew Daily everyday even if you can't read Chinese!

This is the easiest way to demonstrate support from Rakyat to a truthful and just Press. You can at least do this until Tan is released. Otherwise, just STOP buying those BN papers (if you have not stop yet). STOP even buying other papers if they do not speak up for Miss Tan.


Latest Update : Tan Hoon Cheng has been released Sep 13 afternoon. She is now safely in her house in Bukit Mertajam. (MalaysiaKini 04:19pm 13-Sep)

Keshminder, Why Are You in Subang Jaya Zone?

We don't understand why PKR Councillor Keshminder Singh is a Councillor for Subang Jaya / MPSJ.

According to Hannah's explanation in her blog, MPSJ has informed Hannah that Keshminder Singh and another PKR councillor insisted to be in the Subang Jaya zone. As a result of this, Datuk Dr. N. Subramaniam who represents the USJ Residents’ Association has now been assigned to a zone in Seri Kembangan.

Datuk Dr. N. Subramaniam is a Subang Jayan, Resident's leader, and a rightful Subang Jayans' representative! Why is Keshminder Singh who is from 86, Jalan SS 23/21, Taman SEA, Petaling Jaya has the right to "insist" to be in the Subang Jaya zone? If he wants to be part of Subang Jaya, please move to Subang Jaya first and be an elected leader before ask for anything!

Keshminder, Subang Jaya's representative is RESERVED for Subang Jayans only!

MPSJ Board Meeting : What's the Big Deal about Reserved Seats?

In MPSJ Full Board Meeting on 28 August, PKR Councillor Keshminder Singh protested our ADUN Y.B. Hannah Yeoh for seated at the reserved place for councillors. It was reported in major English papers e.g. The Star and also in Hannah's blog.

It's a Reserved Place, so WHAT?
First of all, we are very disappointed for Keshminder childish and immatured over-reacting behaviour. Would matured professional such as Hannah Yeoh would have seated at a known Reserved Place if she was not permitted at the first place? Keshminder should first check the fact first : she has seeked for permission before she occupied place!

He should be spending more effort in checking for abuse of people's fund (i.e. misuse Subang Jayans' money without permission) instead of protesting over "seating on Reserved Place"! Didn't he have more important thing to do?

Hannah Yeoh : our People's Representative!
Secondly, Hannah knew that she was there only as an observer. In particularly, she was being a responsibled People's Representative for attending this meeting on our behalf. Would you want ALL SUBANG JAYANS to flood the place to check out what you guys are talking in the meeting instead of having ONE Hannah Yeoh who is our Representative to be there, Keshminder?

Hannah knew what's right and wrong to do therefore she didn't even utter a word during her presence in the board meetings. We don't understand why Keshminder raised issue about elected representatives were not allowed to interfere with the running of the local governments. That's the problem when the local governments are not ELECTED! Heh, Keshminder, you are responsible to us : Subang Jayans, not MPSJ or yourself!

Councillors : Should Be Elected, Too!
Lastly, again and again, we urged the Government of Selangor to speed up the realization of Election of Local Government. This will ensure local governments are put in the hands of the People's choice of Management and they are answerable directly to the People! Councillors, especially, should be elected too for we don't want immatured and childish bureaucrats like Keshminder and Tan Jo Hann to be in MPSJ Board wasting our precious resources and limited RESERVED SEATS!
