RPK to be released!

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.

STEEST has this:

    Time for the PJ vigil has been changed to 9.30 pm, I believe. Check with Haris’ blog on Sunday to make sure. And no doubt RPK will be there! 🙂
    Thanks for the heads-up. Will check.

    Michelle, none of the events will be cancelled. Our fight for the release of all ISA detainees will continue in earnest and our Abolish ISA movement will also move forward with renewed vigor.

    I will be going with Bernard “Zorro” Khoo and other friends to the Ipoh vigil on Sunday,November 9 which is being organised by DAP-PR. Big Sam Harris will be at the event in Petaling Jaya.

    I was at the Shah Alam High Court early and when the judge decided that the Minister of Home Affairs’ detention order was unconstitutional, we were all jubilant and most of us were moved to tears. It was a great day, which was followed by the decision by the Kuala Lumpur session judge that Anwar’s so-called sodomy case would not be transferred to the High Court. Overall, it was a day to remember in Malaysia. Could it be the Obama Effect? —Din Merican
    Glad to know that everything is still on. We cannot afford to stop now. Thanks so much for the effort on the ground.

    He was delivered to us at the Shah Alam High Court at about 3.20pm. Physically he is not what I saw of him 3 days before he was taken in. But I am assured that his spirit remains unbroken.
    Good to know he’s fine and spirited. Cheers.

    Now he better prove all his allegations on Antaltuya’s case and whatever his claim about the government…we don’t want people to just write without any proof
