    Exclamation Peasants struggles in BN's stronghold Johore

    Johor activist arrested under ISA Oct 17, 08 11:56am A 26-year-old activist has been arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA) tonight following a report she made accusing the police of abuse of power in yesterday’s controversial eviction of a squatter colony in Johor.

    Cheng Lee Whee, a self-employed programmer who is a volunteer for human rights group Suaram, lodged the police report at the Permas Jaya police station in Johor Bharu at about 3pm yesterday.

    The report was made in response to the forced eviction of squatters in Kampung Baru Plentong Tengah - a predominantly Malay village akin to Kuala Lumpur’s Kampung Baru - and the arrest of 27 individuals for attempting to stop the demolition of the settlement.

    Cheng was summoned by inspector Azman Mustafa to the state police headquarters in Seri Alam at around 8pm so that her statement could be taken relating to her police report.

    Four of her friends accompanied her to the police station, among them were Suaram Johor Bahru coordinator Nyam Kee Han, Parti Socialis Malaysia central committee member Choo Shinn Chei and Suaram volunteer See Siew Min. The three were arrested yesterday at the forced eviction.

    At around 10.45pm, after Cheng had her statement recorded by the police, she was informed by Criminal Investigation Department chief DSP Mohd Nor Rasid that she had been arrested under section 28 of the ISA for "spreading false information".

    Section 28 of the ISA involves the dissemination of false reports.
    According to the section, "Any person who, by word of mouth or in writing or in any newspaper, periodical, book, circular or other printed publication or by any other means spreads false reports or makes false statements likely to cause public alarm, shall be guilty of an offence."

    According to lawyers, section 28 does not empower the police to detain a suspect without trial. The suspect must be brought to court within 24 hours either to be charged or be further remanded to facilitate police investigation.

    ‘Police chief confirmed ISA arrest’
    Cheng was later escorted to the Pasir Gudang police station where she is expected to be remanded tomorrow for further investigation.

    DAP state assemblymen for Skudai, Dr Boo Cheng Hau, told Malaysiakini that he had spoken to Johor police chief Mokhtar Shariff as well as Seri Alam OCPD Supt Roslan Zainuddin by phone and both officers confirmed that Cheng had been held under ISA.

    He called on the police to either charge Cheng or free her as soon as possible.

    Attempts by Malaysiakini to contact Mokhtar and Roslan were unsuccessful.
    Last year, the ISA was invoked in Johor against five individuals for allegedly spreading rumours through SMSes about racial clashes.

    Remand order rejected, activist to be freed soon
    Rahmah Ghazali | Oct 18, 08 11:04am

    Suaram activist Cheng Lee Wee who was
    MCPX
    detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) last night, will be released on police bail soon.

    Nyam Kee Han, who is Suaram’s Johor co-ordinator, when contacted today said he was informed by Cheng’s lawyer that a magistrate this morning rejected a police remand for her to be detained for four more days.

    The lawyer, said Nyam, argued on the grounds that 26-year-old Cheng has co-operated fully with the police since her detention.

    suaram johor isa 181008 cheng lee wheeHe further added that the self-employed programmer is currently in the process of settling the police bail with her lawyer at the Johor Jaya police station, accompanied by supporters and Suaram members.

    When contacted, Johor police chief Mokhtar Shariff stressed that Cheng was issued a remand order early this morning and had the right to hire a lawyer for her defence.

    Cheng was detained under Section 28 of the ISA for ‘dissemination of false reports’ following a police report she made accusing the police of abuse of power in Thursday’s controversial eviction of a squatter colony in Johor.

    According to lawyers, section 28 does not empower the police to detain a suspect without trial. The suspect must be brought to court within 24 hours, either to be charged or be further remanded to facilitate police investigations.

    According to the section, "Any person who, by word of mouth or in writing or in any newspaper, periodical, book, circular or other printed publication or by any other means spreads false reports or makes false statements likely to cause public alarm, shall be guilty of an offence."

    'Wrong perception of ISA'

    Unlike other sections under the ISA that allow detention without trial, Mohktar stressed that Section 28 allows Cheng to face a due process of law. He added that Cheng had every right to to explain herself.

    "People may have a wrong perception that the whole Act allows detention without trial, but Section 28 is the total opposite," he said when contacted today.

    "We will issue a press release as soon as possible so people do not get the wrong impression of this section," said Mokhtar.

    Suaram activist Cheng Lee Whee who was MCPX
    detained
    under the Internal Security Act (ISA) last night, has been released after spending 19 hours in a police lockup.


    She was released at 6.04pm from the Johor Jaya police station. She was also ordered to report to court on Nov 1.


    Nyam Kee Han, who is Suaram’s Johor coordinator, when contacted today said police went to Cheng's house at 2pm and took away her computer and thumb-drive as evidence.


    The eight-man police team was at Cheng's house for about an hour. A group of eight Suaram supporters followed the police there, in a show of support for Cheng.


    Nyam said that he was informed by Cheng’s lawyer that a magistrate this morning rejected a police remand for her to be detained for four more days.


    The lawyer, said Nyam, argued on the grounds that 26-year-old Cheng has co-operated fully with the police since her detention.


    Fight for justice continues
    When contacted by Malaysiakini today, Cheng said, "I did nothing wrong," adding that she will continue fighting for justice.


    Cheng believes she was arrested over a complaint she posted on a police website.
    When contacted, Johor police chief Mokhtar Shariff stressed that Cheng was issued a remand order early this morning and had the right to hire a lawyer for her defence.


    Cheng was detained under Section 28 of the ISA for ‘dissemination of false reports’ following a police report she made accusing the police of abuse of power in Thursday’s controversial demolition of a squatter colony in Johor.
