'Syed Hamid must resign'
The release of well-known blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin was today welcomed by politicians and civil rights activists, who called it a triumph for the rule of law.
They now want the government to release all remaining detainees being held under the draconian Internal Security Act at the Kamunting detention camp in Perak.
Many are also calling for the resignation of Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar for abuse of power.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
