PUTRAJAYA, May 26 (Bernama) --

Once again, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar has refuted allegations by lawyer P. Waytha Moorthy that the government had revoked his international passport.

The Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) chairman had claimed that his travel document was cancelled."The Ministry of Home Affairs has been informed by the Immigration Department of Malaysia that the Malaysian international passport issued to Waytha Moorthy s/o Ponnusamy is still active in our passport and travel document system.

"In other words, the Malaysian government has never made any cancellation to the mentioned travel document," Syed Hamid said in a statement here today.

Last week, Waytha Moorthy and Amnesty International claimed that the Hindraf chairman was victimised by the Malaysian Government and that his international passport had been revoked.Waytha Moorthy, who has been living in London since he fled the country last December, has sought asylum in Britain, Amnesty's Washington-based Asia-Pacific advocacy director T. Kumar announced last week.The activist, Kumar claimed in news reports, had planned to visit Washington for talks with leaders of the US Congress and Amnesty and other rights groups, but was unable to do so because his passport was revoked.

Kumar said Waytha Moorthy only became aware of his passport's revocation when he returned to London from Geneva after talks recently with the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.Syed Hamid said: "Waytha Moorthy is now believed to be overseas and is still free to travel internationally.

Another prove of lie, earlier this is the same Minister whom said that Mr Waytha's passport is been expired and that is why the system revoke it. Now he claim everything is ok and Mr Waytha can travel freely !!!

What is he talking? How can Mr Waytha travel when the passport is been held by British Immigration under the system revoke.

Home Minister should explain to British Immigration to release the passport and not telling the passport is active in system, We know how the Mongolian details were erased from database of our Immigration, she was able to come to Malaysia and holding the return ticket but her name was not in Immigration !!

All funny thing and alteration are possible in this Bolehland.

Dear HomeMinister, we are seeking you to ask your counterpart there on what make them to hold the passport. The truth will reveal soon.
