Amnesty International Slams New India Anti-terror Law Adopted in Wake of Mumbai Attacks

Amnesty International on Friday slammed India’s new anti-terror legislation to beef up police powers in the wake of the Mumbai attacks, saying it violates international human rights treaties.

The London-based human rights group called on India’s president not to approve the legislation, which would double the number of days police can detain terror suspects before filing charges, from 90 days to 180, as well as boost their powers to conduct searches.

Dear FM Rais, what are you going to say: “If any one throw slippers at one of the ASEAN leaders”

Dear FM Rais, what are you going to say:

“If any one throw slippers at one of the ASEAN leaders”

This arrogant and Foreign Minister (ex-culture minister) had addressed the Ambassador of Turkey, even on TV,  with the word encik and deliberately avoid using HE or His Excellency during DSSAI saga. FMS should not be rude to avoid protocol.

And when he became a minister, he supported ISA, which was the thesis of his PhD. He was dishonest academic or has no academic integrity  when his anti-ISA thesis was just an academic exercise!

When others, US Algore used Reformarsi or ex Ausi PM used recalcitrant on them they are very sensitive.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 20 — Foreign Minister Datuk Rais Yatim has praised the Iraqi journalist who tossed his shoes at US President George W. Bush, saying it was the “best show of retaliation” for the US invasion of Iraq.

Rais praised “the shoe-throwing act by that remarkable reporter who gave President Bush his final farewell last week.”

“That shoe-throwing episode, in my view, is truly the best weapon of mass destruction to the leader who coined the phrase ‘axis of evil’ to denote Iran, Iraq and North Korea,” he said in a speech last night at a dinner to commemorate the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations.

ABOUT 1,300 illegal foreigners have died during detention in the past six years, Malaysia Nanban quoted Malaysian Human Rights (Suhakam) commissioner Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam as saying.

He said many of them died in immigration detention centres, prisons and police lockups because they were denied medical treatment at the right time.

He proposed that a doctor and a medical assistant be appointed in each detention camp and prison which should have the necessary facilities to transfer sick prisoners to hospitals during an emergency.

   Mugabe says ‘Zimbabwe is mine’, won’t be toppled 

The Malaysian Insider

 

HARARE, Dec 20 — President Robert Mugabe declared yesterday that “Zimbabwe is mine,” saying only Zimbabweans can remove him from power and that no African nation is brave enough to wrest it from him.

The ever-defiant Mugabe — in power for nearly three decades — hit back after the top US envoy to Africa called for the “person who has ruined the country” to step down.

“I will never, never sell my country. I will never, never, never surrender,” Mugabe told members of his ZANU-PF party. “Zimbabwe is mine, I am a Zimbabwean, Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans. Zimbabwe never for the British. Britain for the British.”

Mugabe says Africa lacks courage to oust him,

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has said African nations lack the courage to use military force to oust his government, the state-run Herald newspaper reported on Friday.

The comment, made during a high-level meeting of Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party on Thursday, came amid growing international pressure on the Zimbabwean leader, whose critics say his policies have wrecked the economy.

Botswana’s foreign minister and Kenya’s prime minister are among those in Africa who have called for an end to his 28-year rule.

Welcome to the world of Malaysian celebrities.
