In the speech you gave today, you described the younger generation as Malaysia’s hope and future. RPK is a model of the free speech this generation should enjoy. The way the federal court in Putrajaya is conducting RPK’s case is travesty of justice. The court’s impartiality is jeopardised by the fact that Augustine Paul, one of the three judges on the panel handling the case, issued a ruling against RPK in 2001 as a “threat to internal security.” RPK had posted comments online that lambasted the judge for his role in Anwar Ibrahim’s corruption trial – comments that were widely circulated on the Internet. The decision by judges Nik Hashim Nik Ab Rahman and Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin to reject a request by RPK’s lawyers to recuse Judge Paul seems to be unconstitutional. Paul chose not to remain in court to hear the application for his recusal, leaving the other two judges. However, the law requires that such an application by heard by three federal judges. Since the start of this case, the police and government officials have acted outside the law as established by the constitution. RPK was jailed under the only section of the ISA that allows the authorities to imprison a person without giving their reasons. And the charges brought against him violated some of his basic rights, including individual freedom (article 5.1), freedom of expression (article 10.1) and freedom of religion (article 11). Malaysia has ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, so such violations of freedom cannot continue. This situation threatens the rule of law in Malaysia and offers an extremely negative image of your country internationally. In the current context, it seems clear that this is a political manoeuvre to silence RPK and put pressure on Malaysia’s civil society leaders. We believe that it is your role, as your country’s monarch, to defend your people and ensure respect for their basic rights, while remaining completely neutral and independent of any political party, as required by the constitution. This is why we are seeking your help and why we ask you to ensure the withdrawal of the appeal against RPK’s release and to prevent any other attempt to detain him under the ISA. These proceedings are a challenge which Malaysia should take care to meet. A new hearing has been set for 23 February. We urge you, Your Majesty, to do everything in your power to prevent any further judicial errors. We trust you will give our request your careful consideration. Respectfully.”————— – Two court cases test online free expressionCall for charges to be dropped against blogger “RPK” and Hindu rights activist Uthayakumar – Leading blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin finally released – Authorities accused of bad faith as Habeas corpus hearing held for detained blogger February 17, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Your Majesty, do everything in your power to prevent any judicial error”last_img read more

first_imgJohannesburg, Monday 09 April 2018 – Following her passing at age 81 in a Johannesburg hospital on Easter Sunday, Brand South Africa highlights the important role that heroine of freedom, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, played in helping South Africa transition peacefully from apartheid to a stable democracy in 1994. Madikizela-Mandela’s courage to speak her truth and dedicate her life towards fulfilling a vision of an equitable, prosperous, better future for South Africa is what made her a truly powerful icon of freedom. A true patriot, Madikizela-Mandela faced untold hardships during the apartheid years, yet she confronted each with an inner strength and fortitude. It is her courage and bravery as well as fearless commitment to fulfilling the dream of economic and political freedom which will remain her ultimate legacy. “Her spirit, her passion…her courage, her wilfulness: I felt all of these things the moment I saw her,” said former South African President Nelson Mandela of the woman he would later marry.Her dedication to the resistance movement meant she had to push many of her personal goals aside. The first black professional social worker in South Africa, Madikizela-Mandela had been married to Mandela for just a few years, when he was sentenced to life in prison in 1962. Like many black women of her generation, she was forced to become a single mother to her two small daughters and was thrust into the limelight as a ‘political widow’. “We were hardly a year together when history deprived me of you,” she wrote in a letter to Mandela while he was in prison in 1970, published in her autobiography 491 Days, Prisoner Number 1323/69. Madikizela-Mandela took up the challenge of continuing to resist the racism and sexism that defined her generation with a maturity beyond her years.  It was thanks largely to her, that international attention remained focused on the story of Nelson Mandela and the fight against Apartheid while he served out his prison sentence. “Your formidable shadow which eclipsed me left me naked and exposed to the bitter world of a young ‘political widow’. I knew this was a crown of thorns for me but I also knew I said, ‘I Do’ for better or worse. In marrying you I was marrying the struggle of my people,” she wrote to Mandela in 1977, in a letter also published in her autobiography. It was when she was arrested by the apartheid police and taken away from her two daughters, then aged just nine and ten years old, that she was forced to bear the true weight of personal sacrifice for her people. She spent 491 days in detention, much of this in solitary confinement under unimaginably brutal conditions.  Two trials later, she was finally released. “She refused to be bowed by the imprisonment of her husband, the perpetual harassment of her family by security forces, detentions, bannings and banishment. Her courageous defiance was deeply inspirational to me, and to generations of activists,” noted Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate after her passing. Former deputy chief justice Dikgang Moseneke, once part of the legal team who defended Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, said she had an “incredible ability to be able to take on injustice and soak up pain in a way that is not immediately describable.” Madikizela-Mandela traded what could have been a simple life of motherhood and marriage for an active political life.  Instead, she became fondly known as the “Mother of the Nation”, serving as a mentor and mother to many of South Africa’s young activists, including Fikile Mbalula, current chair of the ANC’s subcommittee on elections and Malusi Gigaba, now Minister of Home Affairs, both of whom who lived with Madikizela-Mandela as young members of the party’s Youth League. “Mam’ Winnie lost her innocence because of a struggle she actually didn’t choose, the struggle entrusted upon her by the husband she chose and the people she identified with – the vulnerable people who were discriminated because of apartheid,” said Sello Hatang, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in tribute to her. Actress Terry Pheto who played Madikizela-Mandela in the BET drama Madiba, said she grew up looking up to Winnie, because her mother did as well.  “I was very aware of her journey, her struggles and her fights. Because of that, it was important for me to see this role as I’ve always seen her; an important and necessary figure in our time,” Pheto said in an interview in 2017 with HuffPost. Although separated for 27 years while Mandela was in prison, the couple communicated through a series of emotion-filled hand-written letters. In one, also published in 491 Days she wrote: “As you say, our goal is [a] free Africa, my love I have never had any doubts about that.”  It was this vision that inspired the couple to dedicate their lives to fulfilling their dream of a free South Africa. Madikizela-Mandela came to represent the hopes and dreams of millions of oppressed South Africans. “Let us draw inspiration from the struggles that she fought and the dream of a better society to which she dedicated her life,” said South African President Cyril Ramaphosa in tribute to Madikizela-Mandela. As South Africa mourns the loss of a brave, courageous leader. We also celebrate her sacrifices and achievements over a lifetime of dedicated service to and making the dream of a free and prosperous South Africa a reality. Brand South Africa’s CEO Dr Kingsley Makhubela, who lived with Madikizela-Mandela after her husband Nelson Mandela’s release from prison expressed his sadness saying “It is truly with great sadness to have lost the Mother of the Nation. We are forever grateful for the role she played in securing our freedom. We indeed need to celebrate her legacy.”Hamba Kahle Mama. Please contact Tsabeng Nthite on +27 76 371 6810 if you would like to interview any of the following people about Winnie Madikizela-Mandela: Brand SA CEO, Dr Kingsley MakhubelaFikile Mbalula, Chair of the ANC’s subcommittee on electionsMalusi Gigaba, Minister of Home AffairsSello Hatang, CEO of Nelson Mandela FoundationDikgang Moseneke, Former Deputy Chief Justice, Terry Pheto, Actress who played Winnie Madikizela-Mandelalast_img read more

first_img8 July 2013The Proteas’ 2013/14 home schedule, released by Cricket South Africa on Monday, includes highly anticipated test series against India and Australia, backed up by seven one-day and five T20 international matches.The Proteas, ranked number one in the world test ranking, will play three tests against both countries. India occupies second place in the ICC test rankings, while Australia is in fourth.The Indians last toured South Africa in 2006/07 and convincingly won the first test by 123 runs in Johannesburg, after dismissing the Proteas for only 84 in their first innings. South Africa, though, fought back to win the second test by 174 runs and clinched a 2-1 series win with a five-wicket victory in the third and deciding test.Philander’s debutAustralia last visit to South Africa was in the 2011/12 season, when they played only two tests. The Proteas scored a resounding eight-wicket victory in the first test, despite making only 96 in their first innings, after debutant Vernon Philander knocked over 5 for 15 in the Australians’ second innings of just 47 all out.Australia, however, shared the series’ spoils after a tense two-wicket win at The Wanderers in the second test.There will be seven one-day internationals played against India, which recently won the ICC Champions Trophy, and is ranked number one in the 50-overs format. South Africa is ranked fourth.Five T20 internationals are on the cards for the sixth-ranked Proteas, two of them against the world number three Indians and three against Australia, who are ranked one place below South Africa.Indian tourIndia’s tour kicks off on 18 November with a match against a South African Invitation XI in Potchefstoom. It runs through until the third test match, which will be played in Johannesburg from 15 to 19 January.Australia’s tour starts shortly after that on 5 February in the same manner as India’s tour, with a game against a South African Invitation XI at Senwes Park. It ends on 14 March with a T20 international at Centurion.Commenting on the schedule, CSA Acting CEO Naasei Appiah said on the CSA website: “It promises to be a wonderful summer of hotly contested international cricket.“India are the current undisputed champions of 50 overs cricket and it was not that long ago that they briefly held the number one ranking in test cricket as well.Sachin Tendulkar“The Indian players have always been very popular in South Africa and their maestro, Sachin Tendulkar, has currently played a world record 198 test matches. It would be wonderful for his 200th test match to be in front of a packed New Year’s crowd at Sahara Park Newlands.“The last time he played a test match there, his battle with Dale Steyn thrilled a global audience.”Looking at the series against Australia, Appiah said: “Any series between Australia and South Africa in any sporting code always promises a spectacle of note and a contest worthy of some of sport’s most famous moments. Australia will be battle-hardened after successive home and away Ashes series against England.“The three KFC T20 International matches at the end of the tour will provide perfect preparation for both sides for next year’s ICC World Twenty20.”Details of the ticket sales have not yet been announced.TOUR SCHEDULESIndia Tour 18 Nov: T20: India v SA Invitation XI, Potchefstroom21 Nov: 1st T20 International, Johannesburg (Day/Night)24 Nov: 2nd T20 International, Cape Town (Day)27 Nov: 1st ODI, Durban (Day/Night)30 Nov: 2nd ODI, Port Elizabeth (Day)3 Dec: 3rd ODI, East London (Day/Night)6 Dec: 4th ODI, Centurion (Day/Night)8 Dec: 5th ODI, Johannesburg (Day)12 Dec: 6th ODI, Bloemfontein (Day/Night)15 Dec: 7th ODI, Cape Town (Day)18-19 Dec: India v SA Invitation XI, Paarl22-23 Dec: India v SA Invitation XI, Pietermaritzburg26-30 Dec: 1st test, Durban2-6 Jan: 2nd test, Cape Town15-19 Jan: 3rd test, Johannesburg Australia Tour 5-8 Feb: Australia v SA Invitation XI, Potchefstroom12-16 Feb: 1st test, Centurion20-24 Feb: 2nd test match, Port Elizabeth1-5 Mar: 3rd test match, Cape Town9 Mar: 1st T20 International, Port Elizabeth (Day)12 Mar: 2nd T20 International, Durban (Day/Night)14 Mar: 3rd KFC T20 International, Centurion (Day/Night)last_img read more
