Dear Y. Bhg Dato' Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Re: Appeal for the immediate release of ISA detainee Mat Sah Satray I am writing to urge you to immediately release Mat Sah bin Mohammad Satray who has been detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) since 17 April 2002. Mat Sah is being currently held at the Kamunting Detention Centre in the state of Perak. He and several other ISA detainees have been accused of being members of Jemaah Islamiyyah (JI) and of participating in subversive activities against the government. Mat Sah and his detainees have repeatedly denied these allegations and no evidence has been produced to substantiate the allegations. All of Mat Sah’s legal appeals have been rejected. His renewed two-year detention under the ISA came to an end in June 2008; however, he continues to be incarcerated. According to reports, he has been informed that his release is unlikely. Hence, he can be held without charge indefinitely without ever being given his day in court. Mat Sah and all the other ISA detainees must be given recourse to a fair trial in conformity with international standards of due process and access to full legal representation and family members. If no evidence is found against a detainee, he/she should be released without delay, as holding them indefinitely merely on the basis of suspicion is a blatant violation of due process. I am also quite concerned about the fact that the ISA detainees have been physically abused and harassed in the past and are being forced to live in small cells and under strict regimes. Mat Sah is being held in solitary confinement with no windows, fan or lights. I ask that you ensure that Mat Sah and the rest of the ISA detainees are treated according to the international human rights standards. Human rights organizations and NGOs should be given immediate and full access to the Kamunting Detention Centre. Most importantly, I strongly urge you to abolish the ISA under which many such innocent people have been held in the past and are still being currently detained without charge, or legal representation, merely on the basis of suspicion. I look forward to hearing from you soon on this matter. Yours sincerely, [ Your Signature ] -------------------------------------------- [ Your Name ] p.s. : 1) YB Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop Timbalan Menteri Dalam Negeri 2) Datuk Mahmood bin Adam Ketua Setiausaha Kementerian Dalam Negeri +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Ada berani?
