As long as the Bail Act exists you will have detention without trial. At least where the presumption of bail is reversed or the threat of absconding exists in any matter. The pretentious conscience of the people like Netto do no understand that there will always be a case for detention without trial. No need to call it the ISA. Call it by any other name and you will have detention without trial.

How about expanding ALIRAN’s influence in KL by holding a similar forum in KL? Best regards
