Teresa to be under ISA detention for another 28 days (starting from yesterday)

Reported in The StarOnline:

Teresa’s father Kok Kim Tong, 74, said a police officer told him that his daughter would be detained for 28 days beginning Sunday, Sept 14.

Something doesn’t feel quite right here.

Why 28 days?

The ISA is a preventive law. It is supposed to be used against people who pose a threat to national security. Teresa Kok is most definitely NOT a threat. But let’s assume, for a case study, that she is.

How in the world would the police know that they will be able to let her go after 28 days? Why did they set a deadline for 28 days?

Do they know that they will be able to get whatever “relevant information” from Teresa within the 28 days, about the azan incident? Which, incidentally, has nothing to do with her. For details, read Aisehman HERE.

If they detain people under the ISA because they “pose a threat to national security”, how in the world would they know that after 28 days, Teresa would no longer be a “threat”?

What do they know that we don’t?

Perhaps a crystal ball hidden somewhere?
Or a hidden hand?
A face hidden under a cloak telling them what to do?

The government, or the police, have got to come clean with us. They cannot simply say, “Okay, we’re going to be keeping Teresa with us for 28 days”, and not tell us what she’s in there for. Nor can they just give us a deadline like that, without explaining how they got about to “picking the date”.

This goes on to show how completely out of context her arrest was.

My foregone conclusion which has been made even stronger now, is that Teresa’s arrest was in no way related to “national security”.

    28 days’ time is approximately when the next full moon will be…

    And what has that got to do with Teresa being incarcerated for that much longer?

    As much as a tea leaf knows about the history of the East India Company (to quote from Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy).

    In other words, it sounds as arbitrary as arbitrary can get. It makes no sense whatsoever, especially when it’s become clear that she is innocent.

    Threat? Why not go nab the ones who caused this damned fiasco in the first place…

    Nab the ones who caused this damned fiasco? No…..then that would be missing the whole point! After all, if they have a reason, they wouldn’t need to use the ISA, now would they?

    The fundamental principle of a true democracy is justice for all, where an accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty in the court of law, it’s in accordance with UN universal declaration of human rights treaty, where Malaysia is a signatory, every suspect is entitled to due process and legal council provided under the law. Action taken against the above detainees has contravened the basic human right and make a mockery to democracy n Malaysia’s position internationally.

    Just one night stay in that cell is already making Kok looks pale n having diarrhea after eaten the provided food, does every one already forgot how they tried to kill Anwar by poisoning his food while in police custody, you think Kok can last for another 28 days in there,let alone 2 years illegal detention, it is barbaric to treat a people representative in this way, hope other MP can do something quick before it is too late. Same scenario for RPK too, that’s why he usually go on hunger strike while in detention.

    Mich,

    I did the write-up on Teresa’s innocence and how she was framed. It comes in three parts. Please have a look at it. Thanks.

    Thanks for the headsup. Will go over in a bit.

    Majority of ISA detainees in Malaysia are innocent people who not really pose any threat to national security, but only to umno -BN grab of political power,
    most of those charges are trumped up lie and can never stand in an open court trial.

  8. jeff says:

    Seputeh Umno Youth division lodged a police report today against Teresa Kok, claiming she had insulted the Royal Malaysian Police and the egg, which is an essential food of the underprivileged.

    He said Kok complained what she was served was “fit only for dogs”.

    “By saying this, she had insulted the police and the poor. Eggs are an important food for low-income earners and the poor. As an elected representative of the people she should not have said that,”

    LOL!!!
