Six Men Secretly Detained Under ISA By The Government?

A rights group says Malaysia has imprisoned six more men under a strict security law that allows for indefinite detention without trial.

Abolish ISA Movement chairman Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh says the group's lawyers discovered on a recent visit to the detention center that the six men were arrested in July under the law.

Syed Ibrahim could not say why they were held. He says he is "quite shocked and annoyed" at the new detentions.

Home Ministry officials could not immediately be reached Friday to confirm the group's claim.

The government says the law, known as the Internal Security Act, is necessary for national security. The government says 68 people, including 33 foreigners, are currently held under the act. (AP)

***** So who are the six people who have been secretly incarcerated under the draconian ISA? Any idea?

i found this pretty scary u know. Does gov have to do with this or they are totally out of question. I think those people who are detain without trail are some sort of people that might leave a big effect on our country economy or maybe really terrorist. Maybe they got a big secret of gov but gov dun wanna let it loose so they send them inside. There are no news, no details and not even a trial. Do we reli need to believe the gov?

Hey. If it is true that these people have been retained secretly, then we may have no choice but ask for international help. This should not happen in a democratic country.

ISA is totally needed in M'sia. There are so many threats in M'sia that the Guv MUST use this beautiful Act to protect its people. ISA must be imposed on those people that uses C4 to blow up others, responsible to have C4 used by others, using racist remarks during PP by-elec, racial slurs against innocent school children.... Long Live ISA!

Are we going backwards to the middle ages? A dictator by any other name is still a dictator.
