On 8th March 2008, Malaysians made history at the ballot box.

Tonight, during the extended sitting of the 12th session of the Selangor State Assembly, we witnessed history in the making.

For the first time since 1960 (the year in which the Internal Security Act (ISA) was passed), a motion against the ISA and for the release of state assemblyman Manoharan (Kota Alam Shah) and other political detainees was moved in a Malaysian legislature, debated and passed!

Those who contributed to the debate were Lau Weng San (Bkt Tunku), Dr. Nasir Hashim (Kota Damansara), Saari Sungib (Ulu Klang), Gan Pei Nee (Rawang), Hannah Yeoh (Subang Jaya), Nik Nazmi (Seri Setia) and Amir Sari (Batu Caves). Those who witnessed the debates included Aliza, wife of Saari Sungib and Manoharan’s wife too. (Suaram – where were you on this momentous night??)

A step for Pakatan Rakyat, a giant leap for human rights in Malaysia.

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.
