A plea for dialogue and free speech posted by Azril Mohd Amin at Malaysiakini

There are many more news at with regards to the ISA arrest. Just like to share with all readers on the understanding of the arrest made under ISA.

The arrest on the three personalities under ISA are no different from the arrest of all seizable offences under the Penal Code as far as further investigation is concern.

The arrest under ISA the provision allows the temporary detention for the purpose of further investigation up to 60 days whilst under Penal Code the detention derived from Criminal Procedure Code with a maximum of 14 days.

The prerogative which law to use lies with the authority concern but at the end of the day once the legal right to detain expires the arrestees must be released otherwise risking the act of habeas corpus and litigation can be filed against the authoroty. In fact the interested party or parties can already initiate their litigations as of now. This is what I defined as rights and freedom within the ambits of law.

So, for the sake of love, peace and harmony act wisely and intelligently. Again I urged the Malaysian knows your rights and the people you support and their hidden agendas, never allow yourself be misled due to your ignorance.

For Malaysia!!!!
