Former ISA detainees support ISA 7!

Three former ISA detainees, Tian Chua, Mohd. Ezam Mohd Noor and Hishamuddin Rais, who presented in the court to support the ISA 7. All of the accused were freed this morning.

More update from Malaysiakini about the responses from different students and leaders. One of the seven accused Helman said,

We were surprised as we did not expect all of us to be freed. Now that we have been punished for four years long before we were found guilty, this will strengthen the argument to abolish the Universities and University Colleges Act (UUCA). I urge the Higher Education Ministry to reinstate us in our respective varsities without conditions.”Posted by Hello
