Court to hear Raja Petra’s application next Friday - Star

KUALA LUMPUR: Sept 19, 2008

The High Court here fixed next Friday to hear the habeas corpus application by Raja Petra Raja Kamaruddin who is seeking his release from detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

The case will be heard before Justice Datuk Mohamed Apandi Ali.

His counsel, Ashok Kandiah, when contacted said he met Raja Petra at Bukit Aman and the Malaysia Today editor had affirmed his affidavit which would be filed at the High Court crminal registry today (Friday) to facilitate his application.

Raja Petra filed a notice of motion through Messrs Mathews Hun Kandiah on Tuesday citing the grounds that his detention was unlawful and contravened the Federal Constitution.

He was arrested at his home in Sg Buloh last Friday, followed by Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng and Seputeh member of parliament Teresa Kok.

Tan was freed last Saturday after being detained for 18 hours while Kok was released on Friday. -- Bernama

We must keeps on pressuring this bn gov. to release RPK , Hindraf 5 and all ISA detainees.
Most of the detainees do not know that they are being detained for what reason.
The recent detention highlighted clear cut abuse.

Highlight this issue at all international meetings and forums .
The ISA is not part of our constitution , not part of Islam , not part of any religion found in Malaysia , not part of our cultural , we are not at war time .
