Kugan's case : Stop manipulation and get the "killers" now !!

Kugan : Stop Manipulation Get to Root Issue

Malaysiakini: Syed Hamid, want to offer your office?…”Kapar MP S Manickavasagam who was also present, responded to Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar’s statement questioning why the Kugan case was politicised.“The minister asked why we used the PKR headquarters to hold the press conference. Well, if Syed Hamid can offer his office to us, we are willing to use it to meet the press. Kugan’s family cannot afford to book a hotel ballroom, so we offered our party office.”

The Key issue here is MURDER of car Theft Accused A . Kugan while under Police Custody. He has no prior criminal record and he had cooperated with police investigation which lead to some cars recovered. So, why he was murdered and POLICE knows the culprits whom caused his life.

Instead of arresting or remanding them, POLICE with support of Home Minister still let them mingling around public.
Why, planning to KILL few more?
The Police and Home Minister trying all their level best to manipulate MURDER committed by some unscrupulous Police personnel whom may not necessarily low ranking.
Looking at the involvement of a Cabinet Minister , IGP and a State Police chief in trying to protect their own act I can strongly feel possible conspiracy involve in Kugan’s Murder.

Why until today Police never arrest the Warehouse Owner whom stored stolen cars?

What’s the link between them and Police?

Instead to finding the root cause, look what they had done for far :

1) Asking why held press conference at PKR HQ. Public wanted to come to Parliament to submit memo , their arrest. We go to police station to report, they arrest. Even if we group together, they call it illegal gathering . It’s merely act of Home Minister try to divert public attention.

2) Incomplete Government Hospital autospy report , never touch death body below waist. Hospital administation claim pathologist afraid family will barge into when conducting authsopy.
What’s a silly excuse?
So they think, the family member all terrorist or what?
Or, he afraid of giving false report to police? The Police already at Mortuary before autospy commence, so what made his to worry?

3) When death occurred, the police gave us lies and tried to cover up by telling us that he died while he was drinking water. And when the (first) post-mortem report came out, they said he died of water in his lungs.

4) The police came out with weak excuses and what I call a diversion tactic by saying that we barged into the (Serdang Hospital) mortuary. This was an act to divert the public’s focus from the murder.

5) They tried their very best to prevent us from getting a second post-mortem report. The IGP (Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan) today in the news said that he can’t wait to read the report, but they used all the obstacles to prevents us from getting a second post-mortem.

6) Up to this day, no one was arrested or remanded for the murder.So what’s next …. argue the finding of Second Post Mortem?Check on the First Autospy report page 4 the ,conclusion.

The Doctor can’t identify the true cause ” SEMBAP PARU-PARU” or Bloated Lungs.The same report also conclude Kugan’s died due to “Pulmonary Oedema” , which Wikipedia says due to direct damage to the tissue or a result of inadequate functioning of the heart or circulatory system.

So, why the doctor made a hanging report. Though I’m not medical doctors, this questions easily arise in our mind when we involve into the issue.When it come to their Cronies all kind of excuses Given, when it involves opposition they search for faults or reasons to charge them.

Let’s Wait for Attorney General’s professional reaction.

TheStar : Federal Court throws out Uthayakumar’s appeal on technicality

Published: Tuesday March 10, 2009 MYT 2:30:00 PM

PUTRAJAYA: Hindraf leader P. Uthayakumar’s appeal on his second habeas corpus application to secure his release from detention under the Internal Security Act was thrown out by the Federal Court here on Tuesday on technical grounds.

Justices Datuk Nik Hashim Nik Ab. Rahman, Datuk S.Augustine Paul and
Datuk Hashim Yusoff unanimously dismissed his appeal after he failed to fulfil the requirement under Section 95 of the Rules of the Federal Court to file a petition of appeal within the stipulated 10 days after receiving the record of appeal from the court. They also rejected his application for extension of time to file the petition of appeal.
Uthayakumar, 47, a diabetic, appealed against the High Court’s decision disallowing his second habeas corpus bid for freedom on grounds of medical negligence.
On Sept 17 last year, High Court judge Suraya Othman held that Uthayakumar’s claim that he was denied proper medication, treatment and proper diet by the Taiping Hospital and officials of the Kamunting detention camp was not true and without merit.
Outside the court, one of Uthayakumar’s lawyers, N.Surendran, said he would consider filing a fresh a habeas corpus application following Tuesday’s decision.
Uthayakumar and four other Hindraf leaders lawyer R.Kengadharan, 42, M. Manoharan, 48, V. Ganabatirau, 36, and Hindraf coordinator K. Vasantha Kumar, 36 filed their first application on Dec 26 last year after they were arrested. Their application was subsequently dismissed by the High Court and the Federal Court.

In Tuesday’s proceedings, senior federal counsel Datuk Abdul Wahab Mohamad notified the court of the absence of the petition of appeal.
He said that Section 95 requiring the petition of appeal to be filed should be strictly followed but Uthayakumar’s counsel S.Y.Chew argued that habeas corpus cases, which go directly to the Federal Court bypassing the Court of Appeal, were exempted from that procedure.
There was a lacuna in that section of the Rules of the Federal Court, she said, adding that that section only applied to criminal cases coming from the Court of Appeal to the Federal Court.

At this juncture, Justice Paul questioned Chew on the failure to file the petition, saying: “You people do everything and finally throw everything to the Federal Court”.
He said he had never seen a single habeas corpus case without a petition being filed. The quorum then ruled that Section 95 applies to Uthayakumar’s case and ordered Chew to submit on the issue of extension of time to file the document.
Chew contended that the court should grant extension of time for her to file the document because the matter was an important one, affecting the liberty of a person under the Federal Constitution.

She asked the court to exercise compassion and leniency to grant her time to file, saying that Uthayakumar was suffering from lack of proper treatment and lack of diabetic diet in detention. - Bernama

Letter from Waytha from hospital bed..still thinks about Malaysian Indian's justice

The article below was dictated by P.Waytha Moorthy from his bedside at a hospital in London to his wife on March 5, 2009.

After 6 days in the critical coronary care unit I was taken to the ccu ward yesterday evening under anaesthesia. I didn’t even realise where my new bed was. However the next morning when I was woken up about 8am for breakfast by hospital staff, I suddenly realised there were brightness all over. It was only then did I realised that it was the morning sun shining into the ward and I suddenly became excited at the thought of seeing the Sun “again”.

I slowly got out of my bed and dragged myself towards the window. It was a painful walk (my groin area was painful as a result of the procedure) BUT IT WAS WORTH THE AGONY. I SAW THE SUNLIGHT AFTER 6 DAYS. I felt thrilled and missed the outside world but within minutes my conscious thoughts swinged to our Lawyers who are unlawfully incarcerated at Kamunting and their lost of freedom.

A new strength and vigor enthralled me for I am now more than ever keen to get better and get out of this place to continue my work for them and the marginalized Indian community.

My thoughts then went to the 6 Human Beings who were brutally shot dead by our own Royal Malaysian Police Force in Kulim recently. How inhumane has our Police Force become? Many questions crosses my mind especially having read on the witness account that the Police had instructed the neighbour who returned home to get into his house and not come out until instructed.
The account of the neighbour clearly shows that the Police had premeditated intention to kill all the Kulim 6 inside the house but thank god they spared the life of the 4 women.

Who the 4 are and what they have to say remains a mystery and believe me it would be kept away from the public forever. By now I believe the Police would have obtained their “under duress confession” that they are “aware” of the involvement of the Kulim 6 in “armed” robberies.

My memory goes back to the incident many years ago when the Al – Maunah gang stormed into an army camp and robbed them of firearms and grenades and eventually they landed in Bukit Jenalik. Imagine after days of siege of the hill all the culprits were apprehended alive. When that was possible, why not for the Kulim 6?

What prevented the Police from calling for back up and apprehending them alive? I for one do not believe that the Kulim 6 were armed and I sincerely believe the two firearms were planted in the premises. But of course the Police say that they had to shoot in self-defence but why the needs to shoot 6 when only 2 were “allegedly armed”.

Apparently they were involved in the smelting of gold that were obtained by unlawful means. What was the amount that was recovered at the scene and where is the complainant?

By the time our very “Learned” Attorney General instructs an inquest into the case many years would have passed by and the Police would have had all the opportunity to cover their asses’ by then. I say this from my own personal experience of handling many cases involving death in police custody and the unofficial shoot to kill policy.

Believe me during the said inquest the magistrate who would conduct the inquest would collude with the Police. Believe me that the DPP’s appearing at the inquest purportedly representing the Public interest would end up representing the interest of the Police and in one occasion the DPP who was present even openly said that she was representing the Police when she should have been acting in the interest of the Public.

I have even staged a walkout from an inquest in a particular case when an STPM student was shot dead for being “suspected criminal who is an expert in firearms” because it was blatantly clear that the Magistrate was colluding with the Police and Attorney General’s chambers to hide crucial evidence.

Upon my appeal to the High Court for revision of the magistrate’s refusal to follow proper proceedings, The Learned High Court judge, after almost more than 6 months instead of hearing the matter (which is a public interest matter), turned down my application for revision by merely writing a “2 line” reply.

As a result the family had lost confidence that the truth would ever come out of the inquest and had instructed me to withdraw from representing her family. I had no choice but to walk out and the “public inquiry” was happily concluded within the fraternity of the police, Attorney General’s Chambers and the Magistrate.

I know the truth on the brutal murder of the Kulim 6 would never come out and the whole system would conspire to cover the Police who are “RAJA DI MALAYSIA”. I realise the above words are seditious and are not going to help me return to Malaysia but what choice do I have. This is the truth and I have to speak the truth.

With a heavy heart I said my Surya Namaskaram prayers and slowly walked back to my 7x3 bed.

When will ever the truth and justice be upheld in the Malaysian system in the interest of the public???

Can someone please pass my condolences to the families of the Kulim 6 who were killed by the police? I am unsure when this note would reach you guys but I am ever more determined to fully commit myself for the cause of TRUTH and JUSTICE IN
