Thirteen ISA Detainees Will Be Released, Announced Najib
KUALA LUMPUR April 3 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Friday announced that the government has decided to remove with immediate effect the temporary ban on two news publication, and release 13 Internal Security Act detainees.
[This is a good guesture for the newly appointed PM to show to Malaysian that you mean business to unite the poeple. Let see how sincere and how far will you go from here]

MIC Happy With Release Of Hindraf Leaders
KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 (Bernama) -- In welcoming the release of two Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders Friday, the MIC has appealed to the government to release the remaining three (Hindraf) leaders held under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

Party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said, while the Indian community was happy with the release, freeing the rest would ensure the trust and support of the Malaysian Indian community.
[Samy, are you trying to say the reverse? Are you advising the voter to vote for BN before the rest of the Hindraf leaders are released? Coming to today situation, BN does not have much option but to DO and ASK for support. You think the voters are like the good old day who belief in PROMISES? No Sir! Oops I mean NO Samy!]

MIC information chief Datuk M. Saravanan called on those released to work with the government in overcoming problems faced by the community.

As there were three more leaders still in detention, he said the party hoped that they would also be released.

"This will also show that the new government under the helm of the prime minister cares for all races.

"Those released must also realise that it is better to work with the government to further their cause, rather than use unlawful ways to get what they want," said Saravanan, who is also federal territories deputy minister.
[Saravanan simply confirmed that only if the community vote BN, only then the rest will be released. Am I right Saravanan? What is the point of doing this if the BN is not sincere on uniting the people? I dont think the community and people of Malaysia are prostitutes. Even a prostitute will ask to be paid first before agreeing on the action]

Meanwhile, Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon welcomed Najib's announcement that the government would undertake a comprehensive review of the ISA which allows for detention without trial.

He suggested a parliamentary select committee be set up to go through proposals of the review, adding that this had been Gerakan's stand.
[Dear Tsu Koon, it about time Gerakan Demands rather than suggest! Oops may be you are not in position to even ask or suggest since you might need a Back Door Entry into the cabinet]

Anwar Welcomes Release Of ISA Detainees
SUNGAI PETANI, April 3 (Bernama) -- Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Friday welcomed the decision by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak to free 13 people detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

"We welcome the move but at same time, want the ISA to be abolished ," he said when speaking at a dinner gathering in Taman Ria here.
[Do you really have something substantial up your sleeve? Why not just release it? May be you also have something held by Najib? If you have nothing to worry about, why not release whatever before the sixth PM took office?]

Release Of ISA Detainees Shows Najib A Brave Leader - Hishammuddin
SUNGAI PETANI, April 3 (Bernama) -- The action by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in releasing 13 Internal Security Act (ISA) detainees shows he is a brave leader, said Umno vice president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

"This is important for the people to understand, we give room for them to express their views as long it does not affect the nation's stability.

"It (the release of the detainees) augurs well for the nation and shows a courageous leadership that intends to bring about change," he told reporters after meeting Barisan Nasional campaigners for the Bukit Selambau by-election in Ambangan Heights here Friday night.

Meanwhile, Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek said the decision by Najib to free the 13 ISA detainees showed a style of leadership that was more open.

He said Najib's willingness to also conduct a review of the ISA was proof that the Prime Minister was not worried about any political challenges.

"Usually when a person comes into power, he will ensure his powers are strengthened but Najib is not like that," he told reporters after giving a ceramah in Taman Peruda here.

The 13 ordered to be released with immediate effect were two leaders of the Hindu Rights Action Force, seven members of Darul Islam, three foreigners and a member of Jemaah Islamiah.

Polling for the Bukit Selambau by-election is on April 7.

[The cousin sure has intimate understanding of the PM. my opinion is BN simply has no chance in winning all the 3 by-elections. BN simply has to pull all the Good Will to gain some simpathy vote]
