Teresa Hits The Ground Running

Modelling "Free Teresa, Abolish ISA!" Limited Edition T-Shirts ;-)

She didn't waste too much time on pleasantries. Neither did she spend any time moping about her 7 days under solitary confinement. She went straight on the offensive - challenging the Government to provide a satisfactory explanation for her detention, taking actions to sue Dr Mohd Khir Toyo and Utusan Malaysia for criminal defamation and against the Federal Government for unlawful detention. Already, she's booked for 3 engagements this evening, and it's only going to get even more (thanks to Barisan Nasional).

Utusan Malaysia had the cheek to ask if Teresa Kok will be willing to take the lie detector test. They have forgotten that the onus of proof lies not with the victim but with the accuser, and in this case, it should be ask if Zaini Hussain of Utusan Malaysia and Dr Mohd Khir Toyo are the ones willing to take the lie detector test to prove their claims! (In fact I won't be surprised if the malicious Utusan Malaysia headlines tomorrow says "Teresa Enggan Mengambil Ujian Kesan Pembohongan".)

In the mean time, we celebrate Teresa's release from ISA detention. But the fight will go on to abolish ISA, and ensure that all other detainees including Raja Petra, Hindraf 5 will get released immediately.

There will be an anti-ISA forum on Tuesday (23/9) evening 8pm @ KL Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall. Speakers include Lim Guan Eng, Teresa Kok, Khalid Samad (PAS), Nurul Izzah Anwar (PKR), Ambiga Sreenevasan (Bar Council), Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh (GMI) and A Sivanesan. More details soon.

Dear Tony,

How is it that the onus of proof lies with the accuser?

In Anwar's sodomy case, Saiful the accuser do not need to give any proof?

Very confused....

Tony,

I'm skeptical about the motive of the arrests and releases without any logical reasons.
I think PR should keep their cards close to their chest. Whatever card you are playing, play it only when you are ready and hit HARD.
It may be the case of creating problems to solve ...


I hope PR can go all out in achieving what they set out to do. Don't let others take credit for getting rid of this barbaric act.

Hi Tony,

I believe that the whole detention issue is a mistake by Syed hamid as the minister in charge. anyway, posted it in my blog - aikmal.blogspot.com on the ISa and Teresa Kok's issue. Take care

congrat teresa, she finally 'graduate' from ISA University. She should sue UTUSAN for defamation and for a full page apology so that all UTUSAN readers especially the BN readers know what nonsense BN is feeding them throughout the years.

public apology from Khir TOYOL is not good enough... make him wear No-ISA badge in every public appearance.

THE NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA HAS COME & THE FIRST THING IS TO ALLOW APPEALS & THEN RELEASE ALL ISA DETAINEES, ABOLISH ISA, OSA, SEDITION OR WHATEVER ACTS THAT COULD BE EXPLOITED AND MADE PREJUDICIAL AND OPPRESSIVE TO THE VOICE OF DISSENT FROM ALL THE RAKYATS.

It is very easy to generate Police Reports against DSAI by using Penang Mamak Umno’s 25 Members headed by Wan Abidin Zain, who claimed to be non-partisan, using their uneasiness that most Penangites will now be boycotting Nasi Kandar one more round???

It is very Sad that the legacy of Malaysian Independence is reduced by this Moronic Flip Flop Coward into great disrepute and a laughing stock of the whole world and knowing very well that the UMNO Government has technically collapsed and but he has decided to shamelessly still cling on to power via dubious means like hiding himself via using of the ISA and we cannot imagine that the Malaysia Moronic Flip Flop Coward has now stoop so low and using the Police Deputy IGP as his willing tools especially the Deputy IGP’s clearly taking side as the Police must be neutral and should be not politiking for him.

The Coward Moronic Flip Flop Chicken dare not meet DSAI face to face to settle matters but chose hiding under the use of ISA and that is what you have as a disgraceful cowardice leader for UMNO.

After 51 years MALAYSIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE but backwards because of the Oppression from the UMNO goons’ divide and rule fear tactics the Rakyats have matured & you must see all this coming because All The Rakyats of Malaysia are all fed-up & can no longer with-stand the hypocrisies, bullshits, lies and deceits of these UMNO Clowns now in Power ok???

We urge all BN Components MPs with a conscience to do the necessary to make possible a New Malaysia for all Rakyats of Malaysia so that all our children and their children & their children’s children’s future will be safe and secured in the Country we all love and not be intimidated by those UMNO Clowns now in power with their oppressive & fear tactics and in the verge of making Malaysia a Police State if left unchecked otherwise. Save RPK as he is the midst of a conspiracy of the real murderers of Altantuya to silence him for good, instead of being C4ed he could be poisoned and worse off if he is on hunger strike by himself. The Acting IGP is defending the Police position after being made the tools of UMNO’s fear tactics & so he is now making lame excuses for being the Stringed Puppet to be easily manipulated by the Puppeteer, power that be. The Deputy IGP must be held personally responsible for the safety of RPK who has been heard to be tortured otherwise he must be made to eat his own medicine come the New Dawn of Malaysia.

Moronic PeeM and Botak Home Minister last minutes’ attempts to cling on power by using the fear tactics of using the ISA at their whims and fancies selectively against dissent & tried to deny their own actions as they now have no balls to face the wrath of the all the Rakyats of Malaysia. ONE DAY THE MORONIC BOTAK AND FLIP FLOP AND C4 MUST BE MADE TO TASTE THEIR OWN MEDICINE OK?

All Rakyats of Malaysia will see to that these Clowns will be thrown out soon come the New Dawn of Malaysia & that all Rakyats of Malaysia will welcome the New Malaysia on Malaysia Day 916, 2008 for a Malaysia for All Malaysians.

Justice MUST BE DONE for Altantuya and for all those detained under ISA without the trial nor the rights of appeal. Light-up a Candle in the Lantern of the Mid-Autumn Festival for them all to usher in the NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA COME 916, 2008

When the govt is bankrupt of ideas, that is what happened.The govt of the blind leading the blinds.

Ms Theresa Kok's incarcerations under the ISA is a rallying point for the change in the political system in Malaysia. It showed the excesses of this HP6 govt.

The home minister earlier said that journalist Tan Hoon Cheng was detained under ISA and was released 24 hours later because the police had reason to believe that her life was in danger. Of course, many of us couldn't believe that since that is not the true purpose of ISA.
Then he recently said that Teresa was released not because the police couldn't build up a case against her, but because they were satisfied that she did not pose a threat to national security.
Are we supposed to believe this too?
How can it be justified to conclude that Teresa is a threat to national security based on just hear-say & allegations by a Malay language newspaper and an obviously disgruntled ex-menteri besar (who probably is seeking for more support in his bid for his party's youth leadership)?
Can't help but notice the way the deputy PM & the home minister had said that the detention & release of Tan Hoon Cheng & Teresa were solely the decision of the police.
Our elected MPs should seriously look into the methods & procedures practised by our police to determine whether our citizens are really being considered innocent in the eyes of the law until proven guilty when being subjected to allegations of wrong-doing.
The same Malay language newspaper is also being sued for defamation by good ol' Karpal. Looks like they were not only trying to trap Teresa.
By the way, one would wonder how the police are progressing on the police report Karpal made regarding a death threat letter & a bullet which were sent to him?
Also, what about the police report made against a Penang UMNO member for allegedly saying that Tan Hoon Cheng would the first to be shot should unrest breaks out?
Are the police actually doing anything?
One also wonders about the outcome of the police investigation on Ahmad Ismail, but probably since the home minister had said (in response to a reporter's question on why Ahmad didn't get ISA detention) that Ahmad had already been 'sentenced' to a 3 year suspension by his party's supreme council, most likely the police must be in agreement with that minister.
