ISA: Landmark case..Malek Husin gets RM 2.5 million

Salam to all,

(Interesting read at Jeff Ooi's: Islamic state? More beer please!)

By now, most of us would have known that Malek Husin of ex-PAS, Ex-UMNO and KeAdilan member who was detained under ISA in 1998 had won his case in the High Court. And he had become and instant millionaire when the court awarded him RM 2,5 million in damages. Alhamdulillah.

Yes ,Malek got a huge sum for the unlawful detention by using the draconian ISA act. But to me its not the amount awarded that matters. The important thing is Malek won the case. It never happened before.

Hopefully, the ISA will be a thing of the past( I say hopefully).
Will Malek's win open the floodgate of more ligitation procedures against the Police and Government and Home Ministry? If that does happen, the Jabatan Peguam Negara will have their hands full.

Congratulation to Malek.Congratulation to Hakim Hishamudin Mohd Yunus for the brave decision you made.
Its time to say goodbye to ISA.

(UPDATE: Saudara Afrar alkerohi have this to say about the judgement)

A first and hopefully, not the last.

Salam Doc,

Allah Akbar!

Irrespective of any appeals to a different judge, this is already a landmark! Imagine, some -kutus saying that ISA is allowed in Islam.

Mat Salo said...

About time bro'.. I just loved it when the judge said a widely known FACT -- that the repugnant ISA is (AB)USED for POLITICAL purposes only. Jauh depa menyimpang dari zaman tangkap komineh. Syabas dan tahniah to Malaysian judiciary. For a while banyak orang nak give-up dah..

Dah ada Melaka ke Doc? Turun KL hari Selasa nak?

Tiba-tiba saya teringat PRU dah nak menjelma.

Elviza:

Not only he is wise. He is brave too.

Fauziah:

Yes you got that right. But I'm sure the gomen /AG's office will brainstorm about this matter. They might have an opened floodgate right in their faces ,bcoz of this case.

tokasid said...

Shah cakapaje:

This case is a boost for justice and freedom fighters. But I'm sure, the Police force, Home Ministry and AG's office will come up with ways to avoid ligitations in ISA cases.

Those kutus are really jahil. Fullstop!

Bro Matsalo:

the ISA made us fed-up and angry.This judgement gave us hope to continue fighting.

Sorry bro, next week tak dapat. My locum gave birth so I have to cover for her!

tokasid said...

Afrar:

Aku rasa mereka akan rayu. Itu adalah sebahagian dari prosesnya. Tetapi keputusan asal ini telah memihak kepada kumpulan yg seringdi zalimi oleh kerajaan.

tokasid said...

Pak zabs:

Ya, Pemilu sudah hampir. Walaupun keputusan tersebut menyakitkan hati PDRM dan kerajaan BN, namun BN masih boleh menggunakan keputusan ini untuk membuktikan BN tidak mengganggu-gugat keputusan mahkamah.

Pak zabs sekarang udah jadi ahli kelab D40 matsalo.tahniah.

Kata Tak Nak said...

I salute the judge though I got the feeling that we have not heard the last of this case yet.

Salam Mamat...

kerajaan (org BN) main reverse psycho kat rakyat...dengan keputusan ini ianya akan mengambarkan...
1.keterbukaan kerajaan
2.ketelusan kerajaan
3.kebebasan kehakiman
4,ketidakcampuran imam hadhari keatas mahkamah.

Lepas ni ada pegawai polis yang akan dikenakan tindakan tatatertib atau kena surcharge...ini cuma window dressing..

Sebenarnya kita selalu kena psycho kerajaan ..esp bila kita selalu depend dgn suratkabar perdana dan berita TV kita.(kita kena manipulate oleh media ).

Syukur. Kemenangan buat marhaen yang bencikan penindasan dan undang-undang rimba.

Kalau dikaji-kaji PDRM itu di bawah kementerian yang 'itu'. Siapa menterinya agaknya. Ha ha ha.

tokasid said...

Che'gu:

Yes, tabik spring for him. He appears brave and fair.
And I totally agree with you. This is the begining of a long battle for Malek Husin.
But the judgement did give some sense of relief to many of us, even though some( me included) still think it might be a part of the on going sandiwara.

tokasid said...

Mamat:

Yes, that was my other interpretation of what the judgement can cause. BN will definitely use it to enhance their image of non-intrusion with the judiciary.But rest assure, they will find ways to cover these loopholes for future use. The gomen just cannot afford to abolish the ISA.

When the gomen machinery go into full gear to use this subject, the ppl will be make to forget about other ISA victims(past and present)that had suffered or suffering( which includes their families). The gomen will finally be made as a very fair gomen.

tokasid said...

Wak pinter:

Ya wak. Satu kemenangan dari segi moral kepada mangsa2 ISA dan pejuang2 anti-ISA.

Tetapi seperti yang kawan2 lain komenkan, ini tidak akan berakhir di sini saja. Rayuan demi rayuan akan gomen lakukan.

Dan seperti kata saudara Afrar: RM2.5 juta itu adalah wang rakyat sebenarnya.
Gomen gunakan akta yg zalim untuk zalimi rakyat dan bila di dapati gomen salah, duit rakyat yang gomen gunakan untuk bayar denda hukuman.
