Arrest Hindraf chairman if he is a threat to national security: Tian ChuaJune 26th, 2008 - 2:56 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur , June 26 (ANI): Malaysian Government should arrest Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) chairman P. Waythamoorthy if he is a threat to national security.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) information head Tian Chua has said that the Home Ministry should make its stand on the matter clear, and announce whether Waythamoorthy should be allowed to walk freely or be arrested.
If he is a threat to national security, then arrest him. Send a request to the British Government to repatriate him. If he is on the wanted list, then we should restrict his international activities, he said.
Waythamoorthy has been residing in London since December after five of his colleagues were detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for organising a protest rally in November.
Chua said he had submitted a question to the Dewan Rakyat asking if the Home Ministry would arrest Waythamoorthy, and if yes, under which Act.
However, the question was rejected under Standing Orders 23(1)(h) as it was considered hypothetical.
Chua continued to ask for the ISA to be repealed, citing Sri Lankan businessman Buhary Seyed Abu Tahirs release as the most recent example. (ANI)
