RPK to be released!Posted: November 7, 2008
I’ve been so busy with studies these days that I’m not so glued on the computer and websites anymore. So I was really really surprised when William aka OldFart called me up to give me the good news. (*Thank you William!)
RPK is to be freed today!
The court ruled that the Minister of Home Affairs acted outside of his jurisdiction, and RPK is to be released at 4pm today. I imagine that there would be quite a crowd welcoming him back on this side of the Kamunting walls.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that no surprises come springing our way from now till 4pm later.
Having said that, and being immensely happy that RPK is to be free, let’s not forget that our fight must continue. There were already some anti-ISA vigils organised prior to RPK’s court decision, so I’m hoping that they continue regardless. There are still 65 detainees in there who are worth our fight.
