HISHAMMUDDIN - 1O PEOPLE ARRESTED UNDER ISA FOR TERRORISM


Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein today revealed that 10 people have been recently arrested under the Internal Security Act for alleged terrorist-links.

The matter surfaced after a prominent human rights lawyer and the Abolish ISA Movement (GMI) pressure group alleged at up to 50 individuals were nabbed since last week during an apparent counter-terrorism blitz.

Lawyer Edmund Bon claimed that 50 were detained last Thursday and taken to Bukit Aman federal police headquarters. Bon claimed that 38 were released the following morning, while the rest are still under detention.

He said he has spoken to some of those who have been released and is trying to gain access to remaining detainees.

Initially, Home Ministry chief-secretary Mahmood Adam denied Bon’s allegation.

Surely they can use some other legislation other than the ISA ?
