The speech that wasn't delivered
Friday, 06 August 2010 21:05
P Ramakrishnan was supposed to deliver this address at an anti-ISA vigil in
Penang on 1 August 2010, but before he could speak, four activists were
arrested and police dispersed the crowd.
That's Rama (centre) at an impromptu protest outside the Jelutong Police
Station, where the four arrested were taken to.
50 years of ISA - Enough is enough!
This is our 53rd year of independence. But for 50 years, that independence has
been marred and rendered meaningless by the continued existence of the ISA. It
has been used and abused to silence critics and put away dissidents. It is an
instrument that threatens our freedom and our civil liberties. It creates a
climate of fear.
That is why the indomitable D R Seenivasagam called the ISA “a vicious and
repulsive document, a document which is repulsive to all those who believe in
He found it “difficult to believe any citizen of this country could have
drafted this Bill if he has the interests of his fellow citizens at heart”.
He was right there. The ISA did not serve the interests of the citizens; it only
served the interests of those in power.
Under the guise of national security, the ISA has been turned into a political
tool to serve the ruling elite to remain in power. Any time and every time the
Barisan Nasional was in a fix, it resorted to the ISA to safeguard and entrench
Some 10,000 innocent people have fallen prey to this obnoxious legislation.
Without any justification, they have been detained unfairly and unjustly.
Not a single one of them has been charged or convicted in a court of law. They
were not brought to court simply because the government had no specific and
legitimate charges against them, and their flimsy reasons for detaining them
would not have stood up in a court of law.
That is why the court’s jurisdiction to review or challenge their detention
has been ousted. The Minister’s decision cannot be challenged in any court of
The Minister’s decision is final. End of the matter. That is wrong.
And the Minister has that absolute undemocratic right to extend a detainee’s
detention every two years indefinitely. That is wrong.
The detainee can periodically appear before the Advisory Board to state his or
her case. Very often it is a waste of time. The Advisory Board that hears a
detainee’s representation can only make recommendations to the Home Minister
which he usually brushes aside. That is wrong.
Friends: It is a mockery to have a law that does not provide for your defence in
a court of law in keeping with natural justice.
It is a mockery to the rule of law when a detained person has no legal access to
It is a mockery to our democratic system when a person can be held in solitary
confinement for up to 60 days without family visitation rights whatsoever.
It is a mockery to us as human beings that this terrible law has been allowed to
be around for half a century.
Friend, don’t waste your time asking for the repeal of the ISA. It won’t
happen. It is the armour that protects the BN. The BN will never throw away
this protective shield. The BN will not repeal the ISA. Let’s accept that as a
The only way to remove the ISA is to remove the BN from power. The moment you
remove the BN, the ISA will disappear. As long as the BN exists, the ISA will
We should target the BN and channel our energies for the defeat of the BN.
When the BN becomes the Opposition in Malaysia, that day will spell the end of
Our slogan should be “Remove the BN” – not "Repeal the ISA".

Azizah nafi tohmahan jahat Ezam
KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Ogos: Presiden Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail dengan tegas menafikan tohmahan jahat Ezam Mohd Nor.
“Pada pagi 10 Ogos 2010, di perkarangan mahkamah, pemberita Berita Harian menyatakan beliau diarahkan menanyakan soalan mengenai tuduhan Ezam Mohd Nor mendakwa kononnya saya telah menelefon beliau mengarahkan supaya menghalang lelaki mendekati Saudara Anwar.
Sehubungan itu, beliau dengan tegas menafikan tohmahan jahat Ezam yang sengaja mereka cerita setelah bersama Umno dan tidak sebelumnya.
“Saya tidak pernah menelefon beliau mengaitkan Saudara Anwar seperti tohmahan tersebut. Saya kesal kerana nafsu politik beliau tidak ada batas; sehingga sanggup memfitnah saya selaku isteri dan ibu. Ternyata untuk kekal relevan sebagai alat pimpinan Umno, kerja beliau hanya mencerca kami,” ujarnya dalam kenyataan kepada Harakahdaily.
Menurutnya, beliau telah enggan melayan sebarang kenyataan Ezam yang dibuat hasil menerima upah pimpinan Umno.
Walaubagaimanapun kerana tuduhan tersebut berulang dan mengaitkan nama beliau secara peribadi, beliau mengingatkan Ezam supaya menghentikan kerja fitnah yang jelas fasiq.
“Sekira beliau mengulangi fitnah tersebut, saya akan mengambil tindakan undang-undang terhadap beliau dan merujuk beliau ke mahkamah dan Mahkamah Syariah,” ujarnya.
