New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth Receive email alerts MalaysiaAsia – Pacific RSF_en News MalaysiaAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders today condemned brutality by riot police who broke up a peaceful demonstration in Kuala Lumpur on 8 November. Some 22 people were arrested during the day, including two journalists and a blogger.Demonstrators were singing the national anthem at the rally, held by the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih) and supporters of famed blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RKP), when anti-riot police charged the crowd without warning.They arrested around 20 people and took them to a police station in Petaling Jaya, in the suburbs of the capital. Among those arrested were opposition Members of Parliament and one of the lawyers for the blogger RKP, who was released on 6 November after 54 days in custody without trial.Syukri Mahamad, a cameraman for news website Malaysiakini, and a blogger known under his pseudonym “Fisherman’s wharf”, were also arrested. Those arrested were well treated and released without charge early the next morning. The police confiscated Syukri Mahamad’s camera and refused to return it on the grounds that it was needed for their investigation into the “illegal demonstrations.” “We call on the government to open an investigation into the arbitrary and violent arrests of peaceful demonstrators, aggravated by the fact that the police chief gave the media a false version of the events,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Journalists and bloggers should be able to cover demonstrations without suffering police threats and violence”, it added.On the same day, Rusnizam Mahat, journalist on the weekly Suara Keadilan, was arrested after a press conference held by the Selangor police chief, Khalid Abu Bakar, within the Petaling Jaya station at which he asked why arrests were made during peaceful demonstrations and the singing of the national anthem.Even though videos show the opposite (video showing that police charged during the singing of the Malaysian anthem “Negaraku”), Khalid Abu Bakar denied that he had failed to warn demonstrators before giving the order for them to be violently dispersed.At the end of the press conference, an officer and the police chief told Rusnizam Mahat to go to the interview room and asked him to make a statement. “Another officer asked me why I had gone to the demonstration and to the police station. After half an hour, I had to sign a statement and they released me”, he told Reporters Without Borders.Rusnizam Mahat said he had personally witnessed police brutality. “I saw a police officer harassing one of my journalist colleagues while he was taking embarrassing photos exposing police violence,” he said.

But the judicial authorities returned to their bad old ways as soon as the spotlights were turned off.”In its decision today, the Casablanca appeal court upheld Hurmatallah’s prison sentence but reduced it by a month, from eights months to seven, and reduced Al Watan Al An editor Abderrahim Ariri’s suspended prison sentence from six months to five. It also reduced their fines to 1,000 dirhams (89 euros). The original sentences were passed by a Casablanca criminal court on 15 August.Their lawyers said they expected that Hurmatallah would remain free pending the outcome of their petition to the court of final appeal. Arrested on 17 July, Hurmatallah spent a total of 56 days in detention, most of it in Oukacha prison.__________________________11.09 – Journalist freed pending outcome of appeal against 8-month jail termReporters Without Borders hails today’s decision by the Casablanca appeal court to grant a request for the provisional release of Al Watan Al An reporter Mostapha Hurmatallah pending the outcome of his appeal against an eight-month prison sentence for publishing a leaked internal security memo.“We are pleased that a judge finally agreed to put an end to this journalist’s imprisonment, which was unacceptable,” the organisation said. “We now hope that Hurmatallah will be acquitted on appeal. This would be the only honourable outcome to a case that has done great harm to press freedom in Morocco and has traumatised its journalists.”Four lawyers spoke in Hurmatallah’s defence during today’s first hearing in his appeal case. They said Hurmatallah and his editor, Abderrahim Ariri, could not be accused of “receiving and concealing” state documents as they had already published them. They also disputed the charge of “violating state security”on the grounds that the two journalists had only wanted to inform the Moroccan public about issues involving its security. “The press hides nothing and reveals everything,” one of the lawyers told the court.The judge consented to their request for Hurmatallah’s provisional release after they argued that the journalist, who is married and has one child, needed to be with his family during “the sacred month of Ramadan.” Previous requests for his release had been turned down.Hurmatallah had been detained since 17 July, the date on which he and his editor were arrested over a series of stories in the 14 July issue headlined, “The secret reports behind Morocco’s state of alert.” A Casablanca court convicted them on 15 August of “receiving documents obtained by criminal means” under article 571 of the criminal code. Ariri, who had been released on 24 July, received a six-month suspended sentence but Hurmatallah was ordered to serve a sentence of eight months in prison.The appeal court is expected to issue its decision on 18 September.For more information:15.08.2007: Journalist gets eight months in prison for story based on leaked security memo April 28, 2021 Find out more to go further Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance News April 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img
