It takes less than 3 seconds to sign an ISA detention order which condemns a person to indefinite detention without trial.

But it will take 3 weeks, according to Government prosecutors to prepare their case in court.

High Court judge Zainal Azman put off the hearing after the prosecution team, led by senior deputy public prosecutors Kamaludin Md Said and Abdul Wahab Mohd, said that they needed more time to prepare for the hearing.

“We will need at least three weeks to file in the 40 affidavits and prepare our case,” said Kamaludin. (Malaysiakini, 26 Dec 2007)

Yes, it takes this long. Despite what the Inspector-General of Police, Musa “Turn-Over” Hassan deems as irrefutable proof of the Hindraf-5′s terrorist links, apart from his litany of the five men’s alleged threat to national security.

Three whole weeks. Irrefutable proof. Wow.

Hearings will only commence Jan 24, 2008.

And don’t be surprise….three weeks maybe extended further.
All people opposition the government are enemies of Malaysia….not to UMNO…but the country.
That’s the advancement of our lives for 50 years under UMNO.
Live with it…or make a change.
But I like what RPK of Malaysia -Today blog…talked about voters…..that 5 million vote will for UMNO and BN..3 million will votes for oppositions…but…4 million talk alot against the government…..and do not vote…and 3 million have not register as voters.
And he concluded….those 7 millions are the ones talking most against the government….but are infact supporting UMNO by not voting nor signed up as voters.
I like his logic.

Elizabeth,

Happy New Year, keep at it.

Our “turned-over” 1/2 past 6 – cops are of not good use. If you happen to be in Penang near the Petani Road police headquarter, try stand at the back of the building and count how many Astro Satellite Dish they have, this are cops suppose to be out enforcing the law and protect the people, but they are watching Astro channel.

.

As bad as the govt. wanting to vilify the isa detainees, the truth is that they have no case in the court of justice if there was one.

All these are done for convenient sake – protecting their greed for power which means monies to fill up their pockets.

Commonly,

people are detained only when there are substantial and verifiable proves that might indict them.

In umno,

people are detained without valid proves but with “MANUFACTURED EVIDENCE” to make them look as if they are the champion of the national interest.

that is the greatest travesty of justice. but well what is gree compare to justice though – to them nothing at all.

woodyooi… it would also be interesting to find out who is paying for the subscription fees for those atros. You’ll be surprised.

5. libraa2 - December 27, 2007

A Habeas Corpus application is against wrongful detention and as I understand the courts had ruled (many years ago) that such applications be heard speedily and with urgency.
But those were the days when we had judges who dispensed justice.

6. tupingera - December 27, 2007

After 3 weeks of thorough investigation, all they need as ‘irrefutable proof’ will be 5 stained mattresses.

MALAYSIA BOLEHHHHH !!!!!!!

7. BATAKMAN - December 27, 2007

I agree that the disposal of Habeas Corpus application should be heard speedily but you must understand that the DPPS and JUDGES are human being like you. Need time to prepare(read) write, type etc not to mention eating sleeping driving watching TV etc. Do you expect them to work 25hrs a day? Common use your brain and not simply accused UMNO,DPPS, JUDGES, POLICE and so on. Without this presence CORRUPTED government, you your self cannot read/write in english

8. monsterball - December 27, 2007

This is of National interest and first time after so long…ISA is applied.
Yes…we expect them to work overtime sincerely….as 5 are being unlawfully detained….and that should not take more than day,
It is the usual procedures….what else can to cook out with…sodomizing others??
No..the 3 weeks delay…is actually to give time more for Malaysians to ‘cool’ down….as they know..there is no case at all..and all will be freed with a small fine….or looking for a Judge to play the tune for UMNO…like before???

9. yh - December 28, 2007

more excuses for inept and inefficient prosecutors and judges? may be they should spend less time on conjuring frivolous charges, then this case can be heard speedily.
never seen a more demonic prosecution office. charging 31 hindraf members for something as frivolous as attempted murder and denying them bail. after suffering 14 days in jail, the same fuking AG office came out with the reason for dropping the attempted murder charge which everybody knows from day one..that it is impossible to pinpoint the fella who is responsible!
in a first world country, the AG would have gone into hiding with such kind of demonic behaviour. well, this country remains one with third world standard.
any more excuses? by the way, time for AG to quit his office and go into politics (of course joining UMNO) full time.

Benazir Bhutto assassinated…just returned three months ago to Pakistan.
First father..then brother..now her.
May God bless her soul and keep her.

Arrest first, then look for the legal grounds.

I believe the correct word for this is Persecution, not prosecution.

FLASH MOB AGAINST SPIN-DOCTORING

http://www.malaysia-today.net/2008/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=54&Itemid=36

written by KopiO, December 18, 2007 18:47:57

Here’s an idea on how to protest agains the spin-doctoring in Malaysian mainstream print media, which my friend and I came across it in a blog.

http://fast0811.blogspot.com/

Here’s the translation and gist of the article:

FLASH MOB AGAINST SPIN-DOCTORING
Time: Main Concourse, Suria KLCC
Date: 1 Jan 2008 (Public Holiday)
Time: 3pm

To do:
1. Go to Suria KLCC Main Concourse on 1 Jan 2008 at 3pm.

2. Bring a copy of local newspaper; it can be The Star, NST, Metro, Malay Mail, Utusan Melayu, Berita Harian, Sin Chew Jit Poh, Nanyang Siang Pow, or any Tamil dailies.

3. At 3.30pm sharp, crumple the newspapers and throw them inside the rubbish bins.

4. Disperse IMMEDIATELY

NOTE:
DO NOT LITTER. If the rubbish bins are full, stack your newspapers on top of the pile. If you can’t do that, find other rubbish bins at 1st Floor or other floors. The ultimate goal is to dumb the newspapers collectively as the sign of protest!!
——-
Imagine this: FRUs guarding the rubbish bins, uniformed and plain clothes policemen arresting people for dumbing newspapers into the rubbish bins!

13. b4madhathir - December 28, 2007

Well, before Madhathir took over the helm of Malaysia, the Malaysian people were rich, the government were rich and the governments servants were rich.

But since Madhathir took over the country, the Malaysians and the government servants were poor, only the Umno/BN politicians and their cronies were super rich.

Where was the ‘keadilan’ considering the Malaysian people were the boss of the country?

Now this Bodowi continues this unjust process inherited from the Madhathir regime.!

It’s time to reverse this unjust process and put all those blatant corrupt Umno/Bn thugs behind bars to prevent this unjust plundering of the Malaysian people’s wealth and thus saving Malaysia from total destruction.

Boot the Umno/Bn thugs to save Malaysia from ruining by all these outlaws from the BN aka Binatang Nasional who will not hesitate resorting to jungle law to cling nefariously onto their political power.

14. malaysiaboy - December 28, 2007

The people of Malaysia should give their undivide support to Himdraf since they are fighting against injustice by the Umno regime.

“In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak for me.”– The statement was written by the Rev. Martin Niemoeller, a German Lutheran pastor who was arrested by the Gestapo in 1938. He was sent to the concentration camp at Dachau, where he remained until he was freed by the Allied forces in 1945.

everywhere i go, i accidentally kick Monsterball…

Malaysiaboy

What injustice are you referring to? Is giving ministerial position and parliamentary seats to Indians injustice? I am not talking about money, this is about giving power to the minorities. This is unheard of anywhere else. Maybe you meant ISA. Try and ask the leadership of MCA, MIC Gerakan on the act. The act won’t pass without the 2/3 majority and this majority includes the other races. It is the LAW and if you don’t like the law vote someone else to change it.

Maybe the Indians should reject the seat allocation by the BN and also the ministerial positions and contest the election on its own. We’ll see how many seats that can be won.

17. malaysiaboy - January 1, 2008

Dear 2-face,

Malaysia is a developing country with all the corrupted politicians manning the government departments.

Well! If the British let the Indians manned the administration of the land, the Indians could also import foreign Indians into this land and with Indian majority in the land, they can phase out other races.

The salient point is Umno/BN are just a bunch of evils ruining the nation. Malaysia is heading in the direction of self destruction with people like you with corrupt and insane mind.

There is only injustice in a country with crooked-mentality like you.

FYI, you are are liability to the nation. You are nothing but a parasite eating into the resources of the land.

Malaysia is ‘gostanning’ with people like you, and just too bad with too many people like you in this nation.

You should be thoroughly cleansed, especially inside your stupid filthy brain.

You need a 100% catharsis.

Praise the Allah and happy New Year 2008 to all, including the corrupt and congenital plunderers of the land.

Tata and cheers!

Hello! malaysiaboy, a happpy New year 2008 to you and all in Elizabeth’s Blogweb.

Malaysia is on the verge of collapsing due to the insatiable greed by all these Umnoputras and allies.

Just looking at the situation in Pakaistan, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, we are proud to profess we are now in these ‘elite group’.

The Umno and it’s allies aka Umno-Myanmar junta are nothing but a bunch of warlords running the country.

These Umno warlords are only interested in land, women and power and that’s why we see today are all these Umno warlords fighting against each other for their illegal wealth without bothering to look after the peace, prosperity and safety of the rakyat.

To solve this problem, just boot all these illegal warlords out from their snake and rat nests come this GE.

The time is up for all these greedy warlords to pack and get bust off!
