Willful Blindness of New York based Human Right Watch

No Speak, No Hear & No See!

No Speak, No See & No Hear!

The silence is more and more deafening. The cat seems to have got the tongues of Malaysia’s “Champions of Human Rights”. We know who they are. They also know who they are.

If it was an issue to wring political mileage for their political masters, they would jump in without a second thought.

They will get their knickers in a twist, rave and rant about how bad the government or the judiciary is.

A classic example was the hoo-ha raised by them when sex bloggers Alvin and Vivian were sent straight to the lock-up without bail.

When it comes to the Malaysian couple in Sweden, who have obviously been denied their basic human rights and kept away from their four children, they have got nothing much to say.

The detention without trial of the Malaysian couple by the Swedish authority has received widespread coverage in Malaysia and Europe but the responses from the so-called Malaysia’s “Champions of Human Rights” and Mr Phil Robertson of New York based Human Right Watch have been very disappointing to say the least.

It would appear that there was a deliberate attempt by the so-called Malaysia’s “Champion of Human Rights” and Mr Phil Robertson of New York based Human Right Watch to remain ignorant about the glaring facts of the Malaysian couple that have been detained without trial for fear of having to make their respective political stand that will, no doubt, embarrasses Sweden on the issue of detention without trial.

Why the double standard / political inconsistency?  Surely the any form of detention without trial of Malaysians in other parts of the world especially in the so-called civilise society in the developed countries must also be under their WATCHful eyes too.

From this glaring case of detention without trial in Sweden, it is evident that if there is no political mileage for their political masters, then its not ‘human right” for these incorrigible hypocrites.

By the way, of late Ms June Wong, the editor-in-chief of the Star, has surprisingly undergone a change of heart. The stories in the Star appear to be a bit more balance now.  It is hoped that it was not an attempt to avoid ending up being the shortest serving editor-in-chief in the history of Malaysian journalism.

    Right! Wee,

    When Saudi journalist Hamza Kashgari is detained by Malaysia enroute to New Zealand and then deported by Malaysia back to “certain death” in Saudi Arabia for allegedly insulting the Prophet Mohammad, Lawyers fo Liberty makes a big issue about it against the Malaysian government.

    Since he was released from Saudi detention in late 2013, they have so far said nothing about Hamza since May 2012. Are they not delighted that Hamza is still alive and back with his family?

    In March, 2009, then Bar Council Ambiga Sreenevasan received the Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage 2009 award from then U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clintopn in conjunction with International Women’s Day, for her “advocacy of women’s and human rights.”

    When Anwar Ibrahim is hit in the face by a tear gas cannister during Bersih 2, these “human rights” types made a big issue of it but when US veteran Marine Lance Corporal Scott Olsen is hit in the head by a tear gas cannister fired by oplice during an Occupy Oakland protest, these “human rights” types are silent.

    They were also silent about the arrests of hundreds of Occupy protestors in the U.S.

    Hillary Clinton was and still is a U.S. imperialist warmonger who gloated at the assassination of Muammar Ghadafi but these “human rights” types remain silent.

      You are right. Phil Robertson and his organization is just a tool to the American to destabilize the developing countries. The Malaysian human right monkeys are just the “budak suruhan” for them. They are very selective in their cause.
