Despite two recent judicial decisions which seemingly indicated an independent judiciary, Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim does not believe that the judiciary is truly independent yet.

He said that recent developments had shown that there were “some judges” who had made decisions based on facts, the law and their conscience.

“It is still not something that can give confidence, (especially) without wide-ranging reforms (taking place),” said the PKR de facto leader.

“Anwar Ibrahim can be a good prime minister”

This statement did not come from an opposition supporter or an Anwar sycophant – it came from a senior citizen, a respected former senior civil servant, a non-politician and a man who loves and cares for his country.

It carries more credibility when the man who said it knows Anwar personally and had worked with the Opposition Leader previously.

Ramon Navaratnam, president of Transparency International Malaysia, tells why he thinks Anwar is a good candidate on Mkini tv’s ‘Uncensored’ talk show yesterday.

“Anwar is able, talented and charismatic and possesses the necessary training and experience to take up the post.

Semalam apabila dunia meraikan kemenangan Barack Obama sebagai presiden baru Amerika Syarikat, rakyat Malaysia juga memperolehi sesuatu untuk mereka rayakan.

Peristiwa itu adalah kemenangan institusi Parlimen apabila pindaan belanjawan bernilai RM7 bilion ditolak. Belum pernah seorang timbalan perdana menteri dan juga menteri kewangan menerima tamparan sebegitu hebat dalam sejarah politik dan parlimen Malaysia.

Malangnya rakyat Malaysia tidak merayakannya kerana majoriti tidak tahu apa yang sebenarnya telah berlaku kerana kegagalan media melaporkan sejarah yang dicipta oleh institusi ulung demokrasi kita.

—KENYATAAN MEDIA UNTUK EDARAN SEGERA–-
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA; 7 NOVEMBER 2008

Rakyat Malaysia hari ini meraikan kemenangan dengan bebasnya Raja Petra dari tahanan ISA. Keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Shah Alam yang tidak berpihak kepada Kementerian Dalam Negeri telah menunjukkan betapa Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri sudah usang dan tidak layak lagi digunapakai.

Saya memuji mahkamah kerana berani untuk menjadi benteng pelindung kepada rakyat bila berhadapan dengan kerakusan penguasa. Komitmen hakim tersebut untuk memastikan keadilan terlaksana membolehkan Raja Petra mengecapi kembali kebebasan yang sememangnya menjadi hak rakyat Malaysia.

Keputusan ini membuktikan kerajaan sekarang tidak layak untuk memerintah. Kerana keangkuhan, kerajaan sekarang tidak menghiraukan hasrat rakyat yang mahukan demokrasi, kebebasan dan menjunjung tinggi kedaulatan undang-undang.

Kepimpinan BN terutamanya para menteri kabinet sepatutnya menginsafi kesalahan mereka kerana menyokong penggunaan ISA dan terus menerus bertindak zalim ke atas Raja Petra, individu-individu yang masih ditahan tanpa dibicara dan para keluarga mereka.

Ahli parlimen yang bertindak mendiamkan diri terhadap saranan Pakatan Rakyat yang mahukan wacana serta perdebatan serius bagi menghapuskan ISA, wajar mempertimbangkan semula pendapat mereka. Keputusan mahkamah hari ini membuka peluang buat semua ahli parlimen untuk maju ke hadapan bagi menghapuskan undang-undang kuku besi ini.

Ramai yang masih ditahan oleh undang-undang kuku besi ini, termasuklah ahli-ahli Hindraf dan individu-individu tertentu yang ditahan kerana dituduh terlibat dengan Jemaah Islamiyah. Mereka semua berhak untuk dibicarakan dengan adil. Saya mengulangi gesaan agar semua tahanan ini dibebaskan dan sebarang tuduhan mestilah dibuktikan di mahkamah.

The release of well-known blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin was today welcomed by politicians and civil rights activists, who called it a triumph for the rule of law.

They now want the government to release all remaining detainees being held under the draconian Internal Security Act at the Kamunting detention camp in Perak.

Many are also calling for the resignation of Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar for abuse of power.

DAP’s Bukit Bendera Member of Parliament Liew Chin Tong congratulated Shah Alam High Court Judge Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad for his courage in releasing the controversial blogger.

He, however, hoped Raja Petra would not suffer the same fate as DAP chairman Karpal Singh, who upon his release from ISA in 1988, was re-arrested just hours later.

“It would amount to contempt of court and I hope that the authorities will not misuse their power,” he told Malaysiakini today.

In freeing the popular blogger, Judge Syed Ahmad ruled that Raja Petra’s detention was illegal and unconstitutional because the home minister had not followed proper procedures in issuing the detention order.

Raja Petra was arrested on Sept 12 by police and was sent to the Kamunting detention camp on Sept 23.

United Hindu Religious Council deputy president AK Suppiah said the court decision showed that the government was palpably wrong to depict independent journalism and freedom of expression on civil rights and abuse of power as threats to national security.

He called on Syed Hamid to resign immediately for ordering the wrongful detention of Raja Petra, a sentiment shared by Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) national co-ordinator RS Thanenthiran.
