A judge today quashed the Home Minister’s order ruling Bersih 2.0 an unlawful organisation. .
The conduct of the respondent (government) after declaring Bersih illegal is not consistent with one that thinks Bersih is a threat to national security, said the Judge.
The judge said the Home Minister’s decision was irrational because after saying Bersih is a threat, the Home Minister and his officials then met Bersih officials, thus giving Bersih recognition. It was a decision that no reasonable decision-maker could have made.
Well, there you go! Bersih is not an unlawful organisation and all the nonsense about it being illegal has been exposed for what it is.
But of course, we wait for round 2: see if the government appeals.
