Anyone linked to a syndicate smuggling stolen cars overseas can be held under the Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance, the Federal Court ruled today.A man was detained under ISA for alleged involvement in smuggling stolen cars for export.
Federal Court judge Datuk Gopal Sri Ram said, this was because they posed a threat to public order.
In his 12-page judgment, he said the smuggling activities of syndicates was an obvious potential to disrupt public tranquility as they had the effect of providing thieves and would-be thieves a ready market for the disposal of stolen cars.
He challenged the decision, but his case was dismissed. The Federal Court ruled that anyone linked to a syndicate smuggling stolen cars overseas can be held under the Emergency (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) Ordinance because they posed a threat to public order.
Malaysia's favourite judge ruled that
“Because no car may be safe from being either robbed or stolen, and its recovery made impossible by reason of the appellant’s (Darma Suria’s) assistance in their disposal.
“There is no doubt also, that the activity engaged by the appellant had the potential to disrupt the even tempo of the life of the community. The even tempo of life of the community is disrupted when there is serious risk of loss of property through theft,”
Maybe we should put all "3rd person"s in a marriage under ISA. When infidelity happens in a marriage, it wrecks the whole family. There is serious risk that the mariage fails, the family is broken, the children become problematic and lead a life of crime.
Maybe we should put all alleged rapists under ISA too. When rape happens, it disrupts the even tempo of the life of the community. Never mind if the wrong guy was taken in.
Maybe we should ISA all those fellas involved in money politics. The activity engaged by those fellas disrupt the even tempo of the life of the community. Poor-poor UMNO was led into such disarray because of money politics.
Maybe we should ISA the whole PKFZ gang too. What they did, which leads to the loss of billions and billions of the rakyat's money means no money may be safe from being either robbed or stolen and its recovery made impossible.
dunno about you, Lulu thinks theres something not right about this Federal Court judgement, but who is Lulu to disagree with the esteemed learned judges?
