Free the Hindraf Five: Unfounded allegation of terror links

It is exactly one year since the Hindraf Five have been detained under spurious charges of having links with the Tamil Tigers of Sri Langka. The Barisan Nasional Government has had one whole year to substantiate this allegation and lay to rest their case in this sordid affair. But, to date, no evidence has been produced to convince doubting citizens that the government had not lied about this allegation.

In the absence of any proof, the government’s claim remains merely an allegation. That being the case, there is no justification  whatsoever for holding them under the ISA. Their continued detention would be cruel, unjust and unwarranted.

Aliran calls upon the BN government to free the Hindraf Five immediately as atonement for perpetuating a cruel and unjust act. Aliran also calls upon the government to immediately release all the other ISA detainees and close down the Kamunting Detention Centre, which has become a national shame.
