Phil Robertson of Human Right Watch, your silence is deafening

Thank you YB Datuk Anifah Aman for providing all the necessary helps to the family of the detained  Malaysian couple in Sweden.

Thank you YB Datuk Anifah Aman for providing all the necessary helps to the family of the detained Malaysian couple in Sweden.

The detention without trial of a Malaysian couple by Swedish authorities for allegedly hitting their son’s hand for not performing his prayers has received the attention of our Foreign Minister YB Datuk Anifah Aman, who has since been doing his best to assist the family of the detained couple and secure their early release.  Yours truly has been informed that the relatives of the detained couple are very grateful to YB Datuk Anifah Aman for his relentless efforts in providing all assistance to the family of the detained couple. The Malaysian couple has already been detained without trial for more than a month.  Please read HERE & HERE.

So far there are only two NGOs have protested over the said detention without trial of the Malaysian couple.  Ikatan Rakyat Insan Muslim Malaysia (IRIMM) and the Malaysia Muslim Chamber of Economic and Social Affairs (DESMMA) have sent a protest memorandum to the Embassy of Sweden here over the detention without trial of the Malaysian couple, HERE.

Mr Phil Robertson, the deputy director of New York based Human Right Watch. Your silence is most deafening!

The silence from the so-called “Champions of Human Rights” in Malaysia and Mr Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director for New York-based Human Rights Watch, on the detention without trial of the said Malaysian couple in Sweden is most DEAFENING. They were very quick to condemn our government for any slight allegation of violation of human right or draconian law that provides power for detention without trial.  When there was similar allegations against the developed countries like Sweden, USA and others, they will opt for WILLFUL BLINDNESS.  Why the double standard?

May be the so-called “Champions of Human Rights” in Malaysia and the said Mr Phil Robertson are oblivious of the news of the Malaysian couple being detained without trial in Sweden.  In the premises, Ms June Wong, the editor-in-chief of the Star Newspapers should use her connection to inform them of the said detention without trial of the Malaysian couple.

Perhaps after they have been kept fully informed of said detention without trial of the Malaysian couple in Sweden, they would no doubt organise a big demonstration or protest in front of the Swedish Embassy.  When that happens, the Star could publish the news to highlight the protest against violation of human rights in Sweden.  The publication of such news will also put Ms June Wong in a better light and strengthen the claim that she is the most impartial editor-in-chief in Malaysia.

  1. Aiyo YB! This Mat Salleh is pro opposition. He is looking after the agenda of the west. Of course, he is suffering from “willful blindness” when Sweden is involved. June Wong pun sama2 lah! Satu gang

  2. What we want is an independent NGOs that taking up issue without fear or favour. We don’t need puppets or lackeys of the West. If an organization received funding from the USA or foreign countries, we must be cautious and slow to accept what they say or publish. These human rights NGOs are only interested in watching our own country and pretend to be ignorance of human right violations in the West. Stupid!

  3. It is possible that the Swedish child protection laws which authorises ‘snatching’ of children from erring parents and that parents be continuously detained without reasonable due process, like bail or provisions to be visited by their children, is possibly worse than the Malaysian Internal Security Act. And the ISA is already scrapped! Under the ISA, only identified individuals are detained but not their family members. The Swedish laws detained the mother for a common religiously obligatory smacking (a little rap on the arm) which the Swedish found extremely revolting to the point of arrest. Unwittingly, the husband, who was away at work, was also detained for no reason other than being the father who could ‘influence’ the child to change his testimony. Yes, as Malaysians we will always obey and defer to foreign laws and customs but having stated that, Swedish child protection laws are cruel.

  4. These so-called champion of human rights exist to protect the foreign powers. They are quick to criticise our government but turn a blind eye when it involves the foreign power. They are con artists and hypocrites.

    Phil Robertson is just another hypocrite. Makna gaji to attack developing countries like Malaysia.

  5. After June Wong’s appetite has been exposed in YB’s blog, Star has improved tremendously. At least we are now able to read a little bit more about adverse news concerning Pakatan leaders. June Wong’s mask has been torn. Padan muka, the poster girl of Vincent Lee.
