Jeyakumar speaks about his detention


Dr Jeyakumar, along with his father, speaks about what drives him, his experience in detention and the ludicrous allegations levelled against him and his party.

Incidentally, today, 1 August, is exactly 51 years since the ISA came into force on the peninsula in 1960.

It is time to redouble our efforts to work for the total repeal of all detention without charge/trial laws.

Putrajaya: PM Najib has set up a new ministry names “Lu tolong Gua, gua tolong lu”. MIC Chief Palanivel will be the Minister in charge of this ministry….

semuanya OK kot

Expose kleptocracy, and the state terrorism that shields it. Everything else is a distraction.

One of my wishes is to put the Home Minister and IGP aside from many others in detention when the opposition is in control.

So just come out and cast your vote to have … deceitful … Umno led officials kick out of their gravy trains and their ivory towers. Just look around you how many of these men from Umno are living in luxury and driving around in imported cars lwhile the people who… Read more »

I wonder how they’ll like the taste of their own medicine.


So refreshing to see such decency, humility, dedication, clarity, integrity and sheer BERSIH-ness of soul in Malaysian politics!


It is not rocket science to understand what the government is up to. They are a corrupt group of people who will do anything to bang down any opposition. They need to protect their corrupt livestyles. More Malaysians should get out of their cocoon and support for a more just and equitable society.


MCA says the DAP Penang government is unfair to the non-Malay contractors. This implies that MCA is saying that the government is more than fair to the Malay contractors. UMNO, on the other hand, says the DAP Penang government is unfair to the Malay contractors. This implies that UMNO is saying that the government is more than fair to the non-Malay contractors. Put the two together and UMNO-MCA, and therefore BN, is saying that the DAP Penang government is more than fair to both Malay and non-Malay contractors. So, well done, DAP, you have through your transparent system been more… Read more »

Dear Mr. Anil, I found this comment in Malaysian Insider which I wish to share with your readers. To ensure the fall of BN, we must first knock out the likes of MCA/MIC/GERAKAN/LSP/PBA/SUPP dan other parti parti politik nyamuk.· 1 hour ago All Malaysians, we must work together to wipeout MCA on next GE.

A comment that needs to be addressed by Gherks. Must be relevant.


Encik Sobri

Why focus on the nyamuk when the bigger culprit is in Umno?

Can you come up with a list of those Umno MPs that deserve to be wiped out?

STOP your racist comment here.


Bravo to you, Dr Kumar. Also to all your colleagues who were detained together with you. My full support to you. Malaysia must now abolish the ISA and EO. Detained without trail is definitely not humane.
