Hindraf Media Statement(18/3/13)

Re P.M. Najib’s grab & give back zero political games with Indian poor for GE 13.

Prime Minister Najib Razak makes the “grand announcement” to some 50,000 Indians gathering at Meru,Klang that now SPM students can take Tamil language and literature for a total of 12 SPM subjects. (NST 18/3/13 at page 3,headlines Thina Kural 18/3/13 and other Tamil Dailies).This was in any event allowed until it was disallowed by the Education Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in 2012.

Similarly the Indian Studies Department at University Malaya was closed down in2012 and then reopened after Indians go a la begging to the UMNO government.Another case of “now you see it and now you don’t”

Similarly Hindu temples right of existence and co-existence is guaranteed by Article 11 of the Federal Constitution like any of the tens of thousands of Masjids and Suraus. And Najib makes yet another grand announcement that “Since the last election in 2008, we havent’t demolished any (hindu)temple. Wow!Bravo ! (NST 18/3/13 at page 3).

And then Najib goes on to make another “grand announcement” that “Najib noted a huge achievement by the Federal government where it had resolved close to 7,000 cases of stateless Indians in the country”.WOW! (NST 18/3/13 at page 3) But by virtue of Article 14 of the Federal Constitution(Citizenship by operation of law) none of the estimated 450,000 second,third and fourth Malaysian born Indian poor must have been rendered stateless in the first place.

These are the classic tip of the iceberg cases of the UMNO Prime Minister Najib Razak’s grab and give back zero sum political game games maneuver with the Indian poor with the hope of getting free Indian votes in the impending 13th General Elections. Not anymore after the 25th November 2007 Hindraf Rally.

This level of racial politics does not happen in any other part of the world, rendering 1 Malay-sia as the world’s most racist regime.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Media Statement 26/9/2012

Uthaya to opt for jail even if fined for Sedition.

With the close of the Prosecution case yesterday (25/9/12) at Hindraf de facto leader P. Uthayakumar’s Sedition letter dated 15/11/07 to ex British Prime Minister Gordon trial, up to a three years jail sentence or a fine of up to RM 5,000.00 looms like the sword of damocles over his head.

If convicted even with a mere fine, Uthaya would be disqualified from contesting in the imminent 13th General Elections which we believe is UMNOs’ game plan. As a matter of principle and as he maintains that he had pointed out the truth in the said letter, Uthayakumar would be left with no alternative but to opt to serve the jail sentence even if only a fine is imposed. Be that as it may he is prepared for the worst three (3) years jail sentence.

The prosecution case ended abrubtly when on 24/9/12, Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court Judge Ahmad Zamzani bin Mohd Zain made an order restricting any further Cross examination to 3 hours of DCP Dato Acryl Sani bin Abdullah Sani (51) then Deputy Federal CID Chief (Intellegence and Operations) (cum joint Operations Director of Ops Padam Hindraf) and now Sarawak Chief Police Officer. On a similar note Investigating Officer ASP Redzaime’s Cross Examination was also restricted to a mere one hour and forty- five minutes. The Court had dismissed P. Uthayakumar’s application that this would deprieve him of his right to defend himself especially when he has scores more of Memorandums and documents to Cross Examination on spanning over the 16 years time period of his struggle for the Indian poor which has a direct bearing on the charge.

An appeal on this Sessions Court Order has today been filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court (Criminal Registry) by P. Uthayakumar’s Solicitors M/s M. Manoharan & Co.

The last Prosecution witness was ex Malaysiakini.com reporter Soon Li Tsin (36) who had on 25/9/12 testified on her interview of P. Uthayakumar dated 5/12/07 at the Malaysiakini studio titled “P. Uthayakumar: I am not racist”. “In an interview with Malaysiakini two days ago, he spoke at great length about his self-proclaimed vendetta against Umno, his Kelantanese heritage and his interpretation of ‘ethnic cleansing’ of Indian Malaysians”. Under Examination in chief Soon Li Tsin testified that she was instructed by her editor to do an (exclusive) interview with Hindraf leader P. Uthayakumar in the aftermath of the 25th November 2007 (watershed) Hindraf Rally which he had led. Under Cross Examination Soon Li Tsin testified that Uthaya had spoken the truth (on the Indian poor problems in Malaysia) as opposed to lies. Under cross examination she does not agree that Uthaya is a racist.

Earlier (on 25/9/12) Investigating Officer ASP Redzaime Abdul Hamid (32) testified that Uthaya was never arrested, investigated or (even) a Section 112 CPC Statement recorded from him (as is the usual procedure) but was straight arrested and prosecuted for Sedition on the same day on 11/12/07. (Note: Two days later on 13/12/07 Uthayakumar was arrested and detained without trial under the ISA for 1 ½ years). Under Cross Examination ASP Redzaime also testified that he did not investigate all the nine (9) allegations Uthayakumar had been prosecuted for as per the Charge Sheet. When suggested that this because the charge was politically motivated, ASP Redzaime denied the same.

Proceedings have been adjourned to 23/10/12 for no case to answer submissions and the reply by Deputy Public Prosecutor Noorin Badaruddin.

With the above we regret that the government is not keeping up to the spirit of the repeal of the Sedition Act as hereinbelow cited.

Thank you,

Yours faithfully,

Note: Govt to Repeal Sedition Act 1948

The Malaysian Prime Minister had on 11/7/2012 announced the repeal of the obsolete colonial era Sedition Act 1948 and which is to be replaced by The National Harmony Act. (The New Straits Times headlines 12/7/2012). Under the proposed National Harmony Act the de facto Federal Law Minister was reported to have said “ The National Harmony Act which will replace the Sedition Act 1948, allows criticism of government and leaders in the effort to guarantee freedom of speech as enshrined in the country’s constitution said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamad Nazri Abdul Aziz”.“He said under the Sedition Act, this was not permitted”.“The Sedition Act has a provision of not allowing the raising of anger against the government, but now we have discarded it”.“Criticisms levelled at the government and leaders are legitimate as freedom of speech is guaranteed under the Constitution”.“We should face the criticisms by the people as this will serve as a check and balance for the government to realize its weaknesses".(New Sunday Times 15/7/12 at page 16)

Media Statement 18/9/2012

P. Uthaya’s Sedition trial: Lawyer Manjeet Singh Dhillon replied to DPPs’ Prolix Cross Examination by Accused.

In reply to Deputy Public Prosecutor Noorin Badaruddin’s sumissions that P. Uthayakumar’s Cross Examination is Prolix (lengthy), Senior lawyer Manjeet Singh Dhillon today appeared for P. Uthayakumar before K.L Sessions Court Judge Ahmad Zamzani bin Mohd Zain.

Among the salient points raised by Manjeet is P. Uthayakumar’s constitutional right to a complete trial to defend himself. In a Cross Examination, Manjeet submitted three rights of the accused:-

1. Right to present the defence case on relevant issues.

2. Right to challenge all the Prosecution case

3. Right to test credibility of Prosecution Witnesses.

Manjeet submitted that the Accused has a right to say the truth about the nine (9) different issues (concerning the Malaysian Indian poor) as contained in his alleged letter to the then British Prime Minister The Rt Hon Gordon Brown M.P dated 15/11/07. The truth is a defence in the Sedition Act that is open and available to the Accused in his Cross Examination.

Manjeet also pointed out the procedural irregularity which had vitiated this trial in that the trial commenced on 13/1/2010 where P. Uthayakumar was charged on 11/12/07 for Sedition committed between 15/11/07 to 8/12/07 at Menara Mutiara Bangsar, K.L. However on 4/6/12, some two years later in the middle of the trial the Prosecution had amended the charge and had moved the happening of the facts from K.L to Seremban, a different town and state. So what happens to the accused right to an Alibi Notice by virtue of Section 402 of the Criminal Procedure Code to enable inspection and which has to be served 10 days before the trial. “Was it procedurally correct may well Render or vitiate the trial” said Manjeet.

In reply to the DPPs’ argument on Uthayakumar’s Prolix Submissions, Manjeet replied that Uthayakumar is trying to establish evidence and urged the Court to allow him to completely exhaust all his defence by virtue of Sections 5 to 16 of the Evidence Act. And never through arbitrarily stopping Uthayakumar’s Cross Examination.

The Judge held that he had inherent powers to give any directions deemed fit. The Judge held that he does not deny the Accused right to Cross Examine but it must be confined to relevant facts of the case and wants the case not to be dragged but completed by December 2012!

The continued hearing is fixed from 24th to 26th September 2012.
