What a surprise!
Atleast our Mainstream media is doing something relevant like this…
But this event would be better if organised buy NGO’s…You know why, Media Prima is owned buy UMNO…
Furthermore, whoever watching it, would know how the questions is from the panels… I feel like watching a s**t program… You know, only one side arguments contain fact and logicness… Another side is bulls##ting…
Next time i hope, this kind of debates will be hosted by free bodies or NGO…
And if can, next candidate would be Mr. Samy…
Syed Hamid Albar today revealed that Hindu Rights Action Force chairman P Waythamoorthy had been issued an arrest warrant under the Internal Security Act (ISA), which allows detention without trial.
“There was an ISA warrant against him and they (Home Ministry) wanted to revoke his passport. But when I became the minister, I said I do not want the passport to be cancelled,” he said in the bid to clarify the status of the Hindraf leader who is currently in self-imposed exile in London.
However Syed Hamid, who is former foreign minister, did not say whether the arrest warrant is still valid.
Meanwhile, Syed Hamid said the government has no plans to review the ISA and other preventive laws as they are “still relevant”.
“They are needed to prevent any activities that could threaten national security,” he said in response to a written question from Karpal Singh (DAP-Bukit Gelugor).
PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim could be arrested when he goes to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters tomorrow to have his statement recorded on the sodomy allegation against him.
This was revealed in a letter from investigating officer DSP Jude Pereira which Sankara Nair (Anwars, Lawyer) received at about 1pm.
The lawyer added that based on his conversation with Pereira, “Anwar is a suspect and may be arrested tomorrow.” [See full letter below]
PKR has warned that its supporters would hold mass demonstrations if Anwar is taken into custody.
“It is surprising that they have resorted to such actions. If they arrest Anwar, we will have no choice but to take to the streets,” said party information chief Tian Chua.
Massive demonstrations erupted after Anwar’s arrest on sodomy and corruption charges a decade ago, in a reformasi movement that continues to reverberate in Malaysian politics to this day.
