SAMY VELLU DEMANDS RELEASE OF HINDRAF 5 FROM ISA IMMEDIATELY


In a surprise of event, it was reported today that Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu will be meeting Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to immediately release the HINDRAF 5 from ISA detention held at Kamunting.


It must be a great sense of relief for the families of these detainees and self exile, P Wathyamoorthy, that they can be united with their families.

Although this call may have come too late for the political survival of Datuk Seri Samy Vellu, admitting his greatest failure for not standing together with his community in their struggle for not being discriminated and raising the issue of the plights of Indians.

It is hope that the BN government will release these innocent political detainees within the next few days.

Let's wait and see whether Datuk Seri Samy Vellu has any more political power to demand the release since MIC is an equal partner and 'big brother' of the Barisan Nasional.
