Malaysia Power Struggle:
Abdullah: No house session, no more ISA arrests

Malaysian government has no intention of detaining more people under the Internal Security Act (ISA), including Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, local daily The Edge quoted Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi as saying Friday.

“I don’t have any plan of invoking the ISA against anyone. And I did not say anything of invoking the ISA against anyone. If some people feel that they will be detained, maybe they feel guilty,” he said in a press conference after the two-hour party supreme council meeting yesterday.

Abdullah was responding to a question on whether Anwar would be detained under the ISA.

On Wednesday, the premier had described Anwar as a threat to the economy and national security for repeatedly saying that he had the numbers to form the next federal government.

Abdullah’s statement had sparked widespread speculation that the former deputy premier would be held under the ISA, which allows for detention without trial.

Abdullah said he would not call for an emergency session of Parliament as requested by Anwar.

“I don’t see the need because Parliament will sit again after Ramadan,” he said.Parliament will reconvene on October 13.
