GMI-Misi Melobby di peringkat Antarabangsa

Alhamdulillah...akhirnya berjaya juga misi ke Geneva yang sudah bertahun juga kami inginkan akan tercapai. Ini bukan kali pertama GMI menghantar wakil dari isteri tahanan ISA ke sidang UNNRC, tapi ini adalah kali ke 2. Kali pertama dalam tahun 2002, GMI telah menghantar Puan Bahirah isteri kepada Ezam Mohd Noor yang ketika itu juga merengkok di KEMTA di bawah ISA...beliau juga menggunakan sebaiknya masa 2 minit yang diberikan untuk menyampaikan fakta mengenai ISA.

Kali ini Alhamdulillah...walau kos perbelanjaan untuk ke sana menjadi satu penghalang besar untuk kami menghantar wakil, namun kami berserah kepada Allah agar GMI dimurahkan rezeki...dengan berkat sokongan dari pelbagai pihak usaha ini berjaya juga. Alhamdulillah....

Puan Norlaila baru sahaja selesai menyampaikan ucapan 2 minitnya di sana sebentar tadi sekitar jam 4.30pm waktu Malaysia...selepas itu mereka harus menggunakan semua ruang yang ada di sana untuk bertemu seramai mungkin perwakilan dari luar negara untuk melobby akan isu kezaliman ISA..ini kerana...Malaysia melalui naiknya Najib sebagai PM telah menggunakan isu mereka yang telah membebaskan seramai 26 orang tahanan ISA yang terkini dan janji mereka untuk review ISA..untuk di lihat sebagai sedang melakukan sesuatu yang positif.
pertemuan dengan wakil dari Kementerian Luar...Asiah turut serta dalam pertemuan tersebut.

Mereka berlepas ke Geneva pada hari Selasa 9hb Jun jam 9pm. Sebelum ke sana, saya bersama Asiah telah membantu Puan Norlaila menyediakan beberapa persiapan termasuk berjumpa dengan agensi kerajaan yang berkaitan.

Akhirnya didoakan semoga mereka selamat pulang ke tanah air...moga semua tahanan ISA dibebaskan segera.

Sisipan Ucapan 2 Minit Puan Norlaila di UNHRC

My name is Norlaila Othman. I am a Malaysian. I speak on behalf of my husband, Mat Sah Bin Mohd Satray, who has been detained by the Malaysian government under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for more than 7 years. Under the ISA, the government can detain persons without even the most basic of due process rights. The ISA is extremely broadly worded and allows for indefinite detention without trial. He was detained in April 2002 and is now occupying a cell at Kamunting Detention Camp, deprived of his liberty. He has never been charged and has not had the possibility of a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal.

Under the ISA the Malaysian judiciary has been systematically excluded from playing any meaningful role in ensuring that those detained are treated in accordance with international human rights norms. There is no effective judicial review. Habeas corpus is only available on narrow and technical grounds. Judges cannot review grounds of detention, and are not shown the purported evidence against detainees.

The ISA allows for review of detentions by an executive-appointed Advisory Board. The Advisory Board has no power to free detainees. It can only make non-binding recommendations to the government. Appearances before the Advisory Board are a farce because the authorities never disclose evidence or documents to the detainee.

My husband was first accused of being the member of one terrorist organization, then later another. However during the 7 plus years he has already spent in detention, no evidence has been produced to substantiate the accusation. Instead he is required to attend counseling programmes and encouraged to admit the allegations against him. The authorities have yet to prove he actually engaged in any illegal activity. Persons arrested at the same time as him have long been released. He has been told the only reason he is still detained is due to my activism.

The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has stated that the detention of my husband is arbitrary and contravenes Articles 9 and 10 of the UDHR. I strongly urge the Human Rights Council to visit Kamunting Detention Camp and meet my husband personally. I call on the Malaysian government to facilitate this visit.

I hope the visit will lead to the release of my husband and others who are enduring the same experience. In my case, the most affected victim is my only son, Suhaib, aged sixteen. The ISA separated Suhaib from his father since the age of 9. For 7 years he has been waiting everyday for his father’s release. It is very sorrowful to see him grow up with this uncertainty for such a long time, and being deprived of the love, care and guidance from his father. Not one person should be held in detention without trial as it violates basic human rights. I am appearing here today not just for the sake of my husband but also for all who continue to be detained without trial under the ISA and their family members.

I call on the Malaysian government to accept and implement the recommendations of the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention requesting the Malaysian government to take necessary steps to remedy my husband’s situation to conform with provisions and principles enshrined in the UDHR.
