malaysiakini - Now Raja Petra Detained for 2 Years Under the Unjust ISA Laws

"The law is an ass"(Oliver Twist)

Just read the section under which Raja Petra has been jailed for 2 years without recourse and anyone should realise that this ISA law is not only draconian, but unjust.
It simply puts too much powers in the hands of the Home Minister as according to this malaysiakini article Raja Petra to be sent to Kamunting.

One could liken the ISA laws like giving a 12-year old kid with the launch buttons of a ballistic missile. Just look at the collateral damage in recent weeks regarding Teresa Kok and the Sin Chew reporter and yet the words "When will they ever learn?" come to mind.

Raja Petra has already been charged and the cases are pending. This ISA detention is unjust. Clearly the ISA laws must be properly revised to include a definite judicial review unless we are to become a police state in disguise.
