Habeas Corpus: Raja Petra should walk free..


This is going to be a brief one just to keep all of you updated.
Attended this morning hearing. Usual supporters were there though limited. Hearing was conducted in RPK absence. Haris, Zorro, Boom with Rodi, Angela and RPK's family were present. Can't remember all the names but they all have been around ever since RPK's sedition trial started. Hardcore supporters, I should say.
Defence counsel Malik Imtiaz took the limelight after all the initial introduction of observers (local and foreign) and amendments made to the enclosure. Malik Imtiaz made his submission arguing from the Federal Constitution Article 149 perspective challenging the manner of which RPK was detained under Section 8 of the draconian ISA. I should say that he was very eloquent and convincing. He had the presiding judge nodding his head in agreement many times. That's my take from body language point of view. Otherwise, it was a very educational experience for those of us who have been ignorant towards our Federal Constitution. Didn't stay long as I was depending on my driver.
Well, after listening to Malik Imtiaz's submission for an hour without the prosecution submission, RPK should be allowed to walk free to defend his outstanding sedition and defamation suit. That's IF, there is law and order left in this country. Yeah, Big IF..
Don't take me too seriously here. This is just The Whisperer's one and a half cent take.

Thanks for the update. I know that MIS will try with every ounce of his sweat to get RPK out. We have to continue to be hopeful, for a fair judge!

Means a lot to me to read your updates on RPK since it's impossible for me to be physically present except once in a while. So reassuring to see that RPK has some really faithful and loving friends, apart from his Wonder Woman wife Marina, of course, and some perfectly robust kids. It's utterly wicked to see the ISA being used to clobber truth-tellers. If people like RPK and Sheih were simply spouting gibberish, Najib & Co would shrug them off as lunatics. The very act of trying to silence fearless critics already confirms the veracity of their accusations!
