Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI) expresses its protest and disappointment over the latest arrest of Abdul Haris bin Syuhadi, 63, allegedly for terrorism activities. The police arrested him on 5 June 2011 at around 8.00pm at his house in Klang. GMI received the news from his family members.

 
On 21 May 1987, 22 young social workers, lawyers, businessmen, theatre practitioners and other professionals were detained without trial under Singapore’s internal security law and accused of “being members of a dangerous Marxist conspiracy bent on subverting the PAP ruled government by force, and replacing it with a Marxist state.” A second wave of arrests took place on 20 June the same year.

It is exactly one year since the Hindraf Five have been detained under spurious charges of having links with the Tamil Tigers of Sri Langka. The Barisan Nasional Government has had one whole year to substantiate this allegation and lay to rest their case in this sordid affair. But, to date, no evidence has been produced to convince doubting citizens that the government had not lied about this allegation.

The Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI)/Abolish ISA Movement (AIM) finds Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak’s statements that the “ISA has protected country from terrorism” (NST, 2 December 2008) and that “the main reason why there have been no serious acts of terrorism in this country is because we have in place the ISA” baseless and unconvincing.
