From Wall Street Journal

Malaysia celebrated a victory for free speech Friday when a court overturned the arrest of a prominent blogger, saying the government had overstepped its authority under the country’s Internal Security Act. If it stands, the ruling could set a precedent that limits such detentions in future.

Raja Petra Kamarudin is the editor of Malaysia Today, a popular news Web site, and a vocal critic of the current government. He went to jail in September for writing articles that the government said insulted Islam and incited religious hatred. He was arrested under the ISA, a colonial-era law that allows for indefinite detention without trial.

By Shannon Teoh

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 10 — Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has predicted a dictatorial regime under Prime Minister-designate Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“If he comes into the picture, everything will be clamped down,” he said to reporters in Parliament when told that the Finance Minister plans to roll out the RM7 billion stimulus package which Najib announced in Dewan Rakyat last Tuesday.

“It has not been approved by Parliament. It has not even been tabled,” the Permatang Pauh MP said of the stimulus plan.

“The public is not even aware this is a problem as conveniently most mainstream newspapers have covered this up just to protect him.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim today blasted the Finance Ministry for its silence on the 2007 Auditor-General’s Report on the multi-billion bailout involving government linked company (GLC), Perwaja Steel Sdn Bhd.

Anwar said the report – which revealed that the government is still paying the bailout grant to Perwaja totaling RM3.9 billion up to last year since 1998 – has yet to be explained or discussed in Parliament.

“The ministry has payed Perwaja billions of ringgit from the Employees Provident Fund in grants without approval of the Parliament and it has yet to be tabled for debate until today,” he told a press conference later.

“I have raised this so many times. The content of the report raised serious concerns over government handling of the matter but the media have consistently played down the issue,” he said.

Untuk melakukan Perubahan ataupun Nahdah, mahu tidak mahu Kegemilangan Ilmu; atau apa yang disebut oleh Franz Rosenthal sebagai Knowledge Triumphant perlulah kita hayati dan pasakkan sedalam-dalamnya sebagai salah satu dari ciri utama perjuangan kita untuk menuntut Perubahan. Kita wajar menyedari bahawa semua tamadun besar tidak terkecuali Tamadun Islam semuanya didasari oleh ilmu. Oleh itu penting bagi kita mengimbangkan peningkatan dalam pergerakan dan aktivisme politik dengan peningkatan pergerakan intelektual dan peranannya dalam masyarakat.

Petang tadi saya memberi ucaptama di majlis peluncuran dan bedah buku 4 karya Dr. Syed Husin Ali. Tahniah saya ucapkan kepada SIRD(Strategic Information and Research Development Center) kerana berjaya menganjurkan majlis peluncuran dan bedah buku tersebut. Empat tokoh dijemput untuk membicarakan karya-karya Dr Syed Husin. Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim membicarakan buku Orang Melayu: Masalah dan Masa Depannya; Dr Lim Teck Ghee, Pengarah Centre for Policy Initiatives membicarakan Ethnic Relations in Malaysia: Harmony & Conflict; dan Pak Said Zahari, tokoh wartawan tersohor yang ditahan selama 17 tahun membicarakan buku Dua Wajah: Tahanan Tanpa Bicara.

Karya Dr Syed Husin mencerminkan pemikiran beliau; yang meluahkan pergolakan dan permasalahan serta saranan-saranan bagi menyelesaikan kemelut yang melanda negara ini. Benarlah kata Dr Lim Teck Ghee; beliau sememangnya seorang intelektual sejati. Beliau merupakan guru juga rakan semenjak dari zaman universiti, yang konsisten dan istiqamah melawan ketidakadilan. Semangat beliau menyuntik inspirasi bukan sahaja kepada saya bahkan kepada semua yang menentang kezaliman dan pendokong Perubahan.

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.

Oleh Khalid Jaafar

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.
