The good folks at Kajian Politik untuk Perubahan Malaysia have gone through the Prevention of Terrorism Act bill and are struck by how closely Pota resembles the ISA.

Here are their observations:

KPRU mendapati, POTA memaparkan beberapa ciri-ciri yang dikongsi bersama sebelum Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) dmansuhkan seperti berikut:

Update (3.40pm): The Prevention of Terrorism bill was tabled today in Parliament. The bill, which allows for detention without trial similar to the ISA, will go for a second reading this week. “They’re going to steamroll the bill through,” says one MP in Parliament.

The arrests come ahead of a planned protest rally outside Sogo at 4.00pm today, which also happens to be the day of the Big Wedding.

Activist Hisham Rais was bundled into a silver Honda by unknown men at Dataran Merdeka and taken away on the eve of a mass protest rally which also happens to be the day of the Big Wedding. He is now at the Dang Wangi Police Station.

According to Fahmi Fadzil, Hisham said he was in a taxi, which was being trailed by a car and some motorbikes.

This was the scene when he was taken away:
