Thankfully, 'sinner' BN has repented a bit by ....

Alas, the BN government has repented a bit more ....and will now release another 13, who have been wrongly detained without trial under the ISA.

REPENT totally, and release all of the hundreds (maybe thousands), who are still being wrongly detained under laws that allow for Detention Without Trial.

Some may foolishly be wanting to thank the Home Minister and the BN Government for releasing 13 more ISA Detainees - but, one should never thank the wrong-doer who has done wrong in the first place. If anyone has to be thanked, it is God for finally these 'sinners' have repented - and are liberating the victims of their wrongdoing...

To arrest and keep detained a person without trial is a SIN. Every persons should always have the right to know the charges levied against him, should have the right to be able to defend himself/herself, and should certainly have the right to a fair and open trial before a truly independent judge...Detaining persons on the whims and fancies of a Minister and the government, without even according the detainee the right to challenge the 'alleged' reasons for his/her detention is certainly wrong.

The government will release another 13 Internal Security Act detainees, including three of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders.

He did not give the reasons for the release of the 13 but added that they "no longer needed to be held".

Of the 13 to be released, six are Malaysians, two Indonesians and the remaining five are Filipinos.

They are Zulkepli Marzuki, Jeknal Adil, Azmi Pindatun, P Uthayakumar, M Manoharan, T Vasanthakumar, Zainun Rasyhid, Aboud Ghafar Ismail, Sufian Salih, Hasim Talib, Abdul Jamal Azahari Yusof Mohd Salam and Husin Alih.

He said Malaysia was discussing deportation plans of the foreigners with their embassies. - Malaysiakini, 8/5/2009,

BN has not rescinded nor repented. It is a strategic move by UMNO and BN. Firstly The New PM has to show that he is people oriented to cover many angles. One more Bye Election in Selangor will be one too much for BN to lose. Secondly to cover the most undemocratic and uncouth way the Perak unseating of Speaker. To prop up the name of PM who is having a very low rating at the moment. The Trio have nobody to thank as the arrest and detention is wrong morally.

Hello..don't be fogged up by latest move. Try explaining to Sivakumar why he was dragged out and I will buy the effort of repenting.

Should throw this Uthaya back to Kamunting as he is still being a racist.

Happy Wesak Day!
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
