Suaram doubts Zamihan's 'deradicalisation expertise'
Human rights watchdog Suaram has questioned the competence of preacher Zamihan Mat Zin's role in "rehabilitating" suspected terrorists.
In a statement today, Suaram executive director Sevan Doraisamy said his organisation had received complaints from inmates over Zamihan's conduct.
"The programme which is run by Zamihan...involved a once-a-month lecture. Zamihan, who is supposed to 'rehabilitate' (suspects) behaved like a police officer who solicits confessions," said Sevan in a statement today.
He also claimed that there is no transparency in the so-called rehabilitation programme, as the authorities prevent embassy personnel, researchers and civil society from having access to suspected terrorists...
