Why are We Such Hypocrites?

It all depends on whose rights we are talking about.

We can roundly condemn the USA for jailing Malaysian terror suspects nd yet we also have people detained here for many years under the infamous ISA without any judicial process.

All it takes is an order signed by the Interior Minister and then you can disappear into the Malaysian equivalent of the Gulag Archipelago.

Nowadays the minister’s decision cannot be challenged in the courts and thus we have created our own Malaysian demi-gods.

Looking at the manner in which the UK authorities treated the bomb suspects we can learn that good policing and forensics experts can provide evidence to charge criminals in a court of law within a specific number of days.

The UK had their experience during the Northern Ireland civil war that saw many incidents of terrorism, bombing and slaying and there was even a case where terror suspects were jailed for many years though they were innocent. However justice prevailed and eventually they were exonerated.

Many people are asking for a review of the sacking of the top Malaysian judges and even though “what’s done cannot be undone” we can restore the good name of the judges who gave their all defending the nation.

If we bother to study history we can learn much about the evil that men do.
