PRESS STATEMENT – Release of Raja Petra Kamarudin

8 11 2008

breaking-news1Replik Duplik Justicie (malaysia) – Menyusul atas dibebaskannya Blogger terkenal Malaysia, Raja Petra Kamaruddin, dari segala tuduhan atas dirinya yang dianggap dapat mengancam keamanan negara lewat tulisan-tulisannya yang kontroversial, Admin situs “Malaysia Today” kemudian langsung melakukan “PRESS RILIS” melalui postingannya tertanggal 08 November 2008 pada pukul 13.41 WIB.

Inti dari isi Press Rilis nya tersebut adalah ucapan terima kasih kepada pengadilan yang telah memutuskan perkaranya dengan adil, dan mengecam pemerintah malaysia saat ini, yang bersikap arogan terhadap masyarakatnya sendiri dan takut untuk dikritik oleh masyarakatnya sendiri. Kemudian dalam press rilisnya tersebut, dia (raja Petra) mengajak seluruh blogger malaysia ataupun para penulis malaysia untuk tidak takut menulis dalam menyampaikan dan mengemukakan pendapatnya sesuai dengan hati nurani dan demi kebaikan bangsa Malaysia.

berikut isi Press Rilis Raja Petra Kamaruddin :

The release of Raja Petra Kamarudin from ISA detention is a victory for the people of Malaysia. In its ruling against the Home Ministry, the High Court of Shah Alam has exposed yet another crack in the steadily eroding wall of justification surrounding the ISA.

I commend the courts which have come to the rescue, as they must do, when citizens are rendered helpless before arbitrary authority and its inclination to the abuse of power. It is through the judge’s commitment to justice that Raja Petra will once again experience the freedom that is the birthright of all Malaysians.

This episode underscores the fact that the government of the day is unfit to lead. By the sheer arrogance of its perceived grip on power, it has failed to recognise and respond to the Malaysian people’s desire for democracy, freedom and adherence to the rule of law.

Those BN leaders and particularly cabinet members who expressed staunch support of the ISA should feel remorse
over the hardship that has been foisted upon Raja Petra, his family and the many others still detained without hopes of trial.

To those members of Parliament who have been silent in response to Pakatan Rakyat’s efforts to initiate a debate on abolishing the ISA, I urge you to reconsider your position. The Court’s decision today offers a new opportunity to work together to rid Malaysia of this unjust law once and for all.

Many others still languish in prison under the draconian ISA, including members of Hindraf and individuals allegedly involved with radical groups such as Jemaa Islamiyah. They all deserve the right of judicial review.
I reiterate my call for their immediate release and that any credible charges against them should be made in a court of law.

Dengan adanya kasus Blogger yang masuk “bui” perkara tulisannya dimedia massa khususnya internet setidaknya menjadi sebuah pembelajaran bagi kita para Blogger Indonesia untuk tetap semangat menyuarakan hati nurani lewat tulisan, tentunya masih mempertimbangkan nilai-nilai kebudayaan dan kesopanan dalam setiap penulisan opini, berita atau apapun itu jenisnya.

Demikian,
