Malaysia arrests opposition figures to thwart protest

Posted: 28 Mar 2015 07:23 AM PDT

28 March 2015

Malaysian police arrested three leading opposition politicians in a bid to thwart a protest march on Saturday demanding the release of jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, his party said.

The protest went ahead anyway, however, with several hundred people taking to the streets of the capital Kuala Lumpur to denounce the government of Prime Minister Najib Razak.

The arrests are the latest in an growing tally of sedition charges levelled at government opponents amid anger over Anwar’s jailing last month on a sodomy charge.

“This is an abuse of the sedition law, and an abuse of everything. The government is acting maliciously,” said Tian Chua, a member of parliament and vice president of Anwar’s People’s Justice Party, shortly before he was arrested on Saturday.

Police had banned the rally and said participants faced arrest.

Demonstrators staged a short march through the city towards its convention centre, where participants had vowed to disrupt wedding celebrations for Najib’s daughter.

Scores of police blocked them from the area, and they later dispersed. There were no arrests or violent incidents reported.

Washington has been among the international critics of Anwar’s conviction and the crackdown on dissent, saying both raised rule-of-law concerns.

Anwar denies the charge that he sodomised a former male aide in 2008, saying it was fabricated by Malaysia’s long-ruling government to halt a run of opposition electoral gains.

Najib promised in 2011 to end the authoritarian tactics of his ruling United Malays National Organisation (UMNO).

But after that failed to win back ebbing voter support in 2013 polls, his government has launched a tightening clampdown in which dozens of opponents were hauled up on sedition or other charges over the past year.

Anwar’s daughter Nurul Izzah, a member of parliament and one of those charged recently with sedition, warned Friday that Malaysia was sliding toward becoming a “police state”.

Najib last week defended his policies, saying dissent cannot be allowed to jeopardise stability.

But Amnesty International last Monday noted “troubling signs of an escalating crackdown” on civil liberties.

“The space for dissent and debate in Malaysia is rapidly shrinking, under the guise of punishing ‘sedition’ or maintaining public order,” it said in a statement.

Besides Tian Chua, police on Saturday also arrested Mohamad Sabu, deputy president of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS).

Rafizi Ramli, a vice president of Anwar’s party, was arrested on Friday.

A police official confirmed Rafizi’s arrest but declined comment on the others.

It was not clear what the men, who were still in custody later Saturday, would be charged with.

Democracy behind bars: 11 opposition leaders facing jail or death

Posted: 28 Mar 2015 07:14 AM PDT

With global democracy declining for the ninth year in a row, we look at some of the opposition leaders around the world who have been charged with sodomy, bribery and arson, and who now face prison and even death sentences.

Leopoldo López, awaiting verdict, charged with inciting violence and arson

"Our arguments – and those of hundreds more Venezuelans suffering the same injustice – are clear and forceful: political disqualification violates laws."

Founder of the opposition Popular Will party, Leopoldo López was arrested on 18 February 2014 after calling for citizens to protest the government of President Nicolas Maduro, whose leadership has seen Venezuela pushed into the top 10 countries in the world for corruption and homicide. Charges of murder and terrorism were later downgraded to arson, damage and inciting violence, for which he is still on trial.

Andargachew Tsige, death row, convicted of attempting to overthrow the government

Accused of attempting to overthrow the government, Ethiopian opposition leader Andargachew Tsige was sentenced to death in absentia in 2007. His party, Ginbot 7, seeks to end the country's dictatorship and is Ethiopia's largest exiled opposition movement. After Ginbot 7 was declared a terrorist organisation in the 1970s, Tsige fled and sought asylum in the UK.

While travelling to Eritrea in June 2014, Tsige disappeared during a stopover at Sana'a airport and was subsequently extradited to Ethiopia, where he remains on death row. Amnesty International has closely documented Tsige's case, and online petitions call for his release.

Mohamed Nasheed, 13 years, convicted of terrorism

"Maldivians have the right to be ruled, not through coercion, down the barrel of a gun, but peacefully, by popular consent, via the ballot box."

As president of the Maldives, Nasheed sought to arrest the chief judge of the criminal court for corruption in January 2012, but was forced to resign from office in what was effectively a coup. Now leader of the opposition Maldivian Democratic party, he was arrested on terrorism charges and jailed for 13 years earlier this month.

The MDP launched a national civil disobedience campaign to free Nasheed on 15 March, calling for citizens to take to the street in peaceful protest. His trial was deemed deeply flawed by Amnesty International.

Musallam al-Barrak, two years, convicted for criticising the Kuwaiti ruler

"You can jail my body but not my ideas and will."

Musallam al-Barrak, leader of the Popular Action Movement opposition, is accused of insulting Kuwaiti ruler Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah during a speech while he was an MP in October 2012. His speech protested that changes in law would allow the al-Sabah family to manipulate election outcomes.

Authorities have cracked down on their opposition since mass protests in 2012, and numerous former MPs and tweeters have since been jailed for criticising the emir. Al-Barrak was sentenced to two years in prison in February. Amnesty International has been calling for his release.

Anwar Ibrahim, five years, convicted of sodomy

"[Imprisonment] is a small price to pay in my struggle for freedom and justice for all Malaysians."

On 10 February 2015, Malaysia's highest court upheld a five-year prison sentence for opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on a sodomy charge. The action came after a former campaign worker filed a sexual assault claim against him. Anal sex is illegal in Malaysia. Ibrahim was previously acquitted of the crime in 2012, but the ruling was overturned days before he was set to contest an election in March 2014. Critics describe his arrest as a government attempt to block the opposition's ascendancy.

There are Facebook and Twitter campaigns for his release, and political coalition Pakatan Rakyat launched a petition to pardon Ibrahim on 16 March.

Democratic Republic of the Congo
Jean-Bertrand Ewanga, one year, convicted of contempt of court

The arrest of Jean-Bertrand Ewanga, secretary of the opposition Union for the Congolese Nation party, came in August 2014 after he participated in a rally opposing the extension of presidential terms in the DRC. He was placed under house arrest on charges of inciting hatred, tribalism and contempt of the supreme magistrature, then sentenced to one year in prison on 11 September 2014.

The Free Fair DRC campaign group has been active in raising awareness, and Ewanga's case was discussed in British parliament during October 2014, where it garnered 28 signatures from across party lines.

Ibrahim Lipumba, awaiting verdict, charged with holding rallies without a permit

"The people of Zanzibar have been robbed of their choice. We will not accept it."

Professor Ibrahim Lipumba, chairman of the Civic United Front party, was arrested on 28 January 2015 and for holding political rallies without a permit ahead of the October 2015 Tanzanian elections. New charges of conspiracy, unlawful assembly and rioting were issued on 25 February. With Lipumba currently out on bail, the case has been adjourned until April 13.

Victoire Ingabire, 15 years, convicted of threatening state security

"Remanding me in captivity or silencing my voice can only postpone the revolution, it cannot stop the movement."

Unified Democratic Forces party leader Victoire Ingabire returned to Rwanda in January 2010, after living in exile for 16 years in the Netherlands, to stand in that year's elections. She was arrested in April 2010 and barred from running for office.

She was charged with "threatening state security" and "belittling Rwanda's 1994 genocide" after questioning why the country's official memorial excluded Hutus (some moderate Hutus were slaughtered by Hutu extremists alongside Tutsis). She boycotted the trial, which she described as politically motivated, and refused to appear in court. Courts upheld the conviction and increased her jail term from eight to 15 years, reviving previously dropped charges of encouraging revolt, after an appeal in December 2013. Her supporters call for international mobilisation against her imprisonment.

Farouk Abu Issa, awaiting verdict, charged with undermining the constitutional system

Farouk Abu Issa was arrested on 6 December 2014 after signing a political declaration in Sudan that brought together opposition and rebel forces in a joint call for democratic change. He faces charges of (pdf) "complicity to execute a criminal agreement", "undermining the constitutional system" and "opposing public authority by violence or criminal force".

Abu Issa's health has deteriorated since his arrest. Amnesty International and Canadian organisation Lawyers' Rights Watch have spearheaded calls for the 82-year-old's release.

Mario Masuku, awaiting verdict, charged with terrorism and sedition

"The king will try to silence the opposition, to try and tighten the knot around us, but we will continue to make things very difficult."

Mario Masuku, president of banned opposition party of the People's United Democratic Movement, was detained on terrorism charges after delivering a speech on 1 May 2014 that criticised the system of government in Swaziland. He has been denied bail twice, despite severe health problems, and could face 15 years behind bars if convicted.

Online petitions call for Masuku's release, while blogs have reported widespread support from politicians, organisations and individuals including the International Trade Union Confederation, the African National Congress and Unison.

Frédéric Bamvuginyumvira, five years, convicted of bribery

In his role as deputy leader of the Front for Democracy party, Frédéric Bamvuginyumvira was tipped as the preferred opposition candidate for the summer 2015 presidential elections. The former vice-president was accused of attempting to bribe police in December 2013. He denies the charges, claiming they were intended to block his run for president.

The initial accusations of adultery and bribery were dropped in favour of corruption charges, and on 15 January 2015, Bamvuginyumvira was sentenced to five years in prison. A 2014 report by Amnesty International included a section on his case.

Van ini mampu memuatkan 1,000 naskah buku di rak
Pelbagai genre buku turut dijual oleh mobilebookcafe, antaranya buku ilmiah, novel, masakan, karya sastera, komik mahupun buku agama.Mengambil inspirasi daripada kedai buku bergerak milik Penguin Books di Amerika Syarikat, mobilebookcafe kini sudah beroperasi hampir tiga bulan yang lalu. Menurut Muhammad, 55 pada asalnya beliau ingin membuka kedai buku, namun kerana kos menyewa bangunan yang terlalu tinggi menyebabkan dia terpaksa mengubah niat asalnya itu dan akhirnya mendapat idea untuk mewujudkan kedai buku bergerak seperti yang ada sekarang. 
Pelajar USIM berminat dengan buku yang dijual mobilebookcafe.
Bercerita lanjut, Muhammad berkata tumpuan utama mereka ialah pelajar sekolah kerana mereka ini gemar membaca terutamanya bahan bacaan ringan.

"Harga yang ditawarkan sama sahaja tetapi untuk pelajar mereka tidak kisah sangat mengenai diskaun. Diskaun minimum yang diberikan ialah 10 peratus daripada harga asal buku. Dari segi jualan pula, sangat mengalakkan.

"Bagi jualan di sekolah secara purata kita boleh memperoleh, sekitar RM5,000 bagi satu lawatan. Paling tinggi jualan kita pernah mencecah RM18,000, ini kerana pihak sekolah menempah buku untuk bahan bacaan di pusat sumber sekolah," katanya kepada mStar Online ketika ditemui di Pesta Buku yang diadakan di Fakulti Kepimpinan dan Pengurusan, Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) baru-baru ini.

Untuk menarik lebih ramai pengunjung, Muhammad berkata pihaknya sering mengajak penulis buku serta mengadakan bengkel penulisan mahupun mewarna ketika mengadakan lawatan di sekolah mahupun tempat awam.

"Kami juga menyumbang buku kepada perpustakaan di sekolah yang kami lawati, sebagai menghargai dan tanda terima kasih kepada mereka kerana sudi menerima kehadiran kami," katanya yang turut menjelajah ke beberapa buah sekolah dan institusi pengajian tinggi negeri-negeri di utara tanah air.

Putrajaya paid extra RM109 million for PM’s jet, says PKR

Posted: 24 Mar 2015 02:23 AM PDT


Putrajaya paid an excess of RM109 million for a private jet for the Prime Minister’s use from Jet Premier One (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd? (JPO), a private company who had acquired the aircraft from Air Luther AG, PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli said today.

Its secretary-general Rafizi Ramli said that this amount was derived from the current market value of the ACJ320 compared to the price the Malaysian government had paid to JPO.

“JPO sold the ACJ320 private jet at a hire purchase price, causing Putrajaya to pay a higher price from the cost that it would incur if it had bought the jet itself, without JPO,” he said in a press conference at the Parliament lobby today.

Rafizi had revealed last week that Putrajaya had ordered a new private aircraft for Najib’s use, which was later confirmed by the Prime Minister’s Office, who said the Airbus corporate jetliner was purchased to replace the 16-year-old Boeing business jet.

Rafizi had said last week that the new purchase brings the tally to seven aircraft owned by the government.

Sungai Petani MP Datuk Johari Abdul said today that it was unacceptable for the government to have bought the jet at a marked up price at a time when the people were upset over the increasing prices of goods and the impending goods and services tax (GST).

“This is like double jeopardy… when the people are suffering, they buy a jet and on top of that, they buy it at a marked up price,” he added.

Rafizi said that he would reveal the owner of JPO, the company that bought the jet from Air Luther and sold it to the government, in a press conference tomorrow.

The Pandan MP had revealed yesterday that Putrajaya had spent US$8 million (RM28 million) to upgrade the recently-purchased private jet for the use of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his family.

“The US$8 million was included in the sale price which was the base of the hire purchase price of RM465 million that was borne by the Malaysian government,” he had said.

Mahkamah tetapkan Jumaat permohonan Anwar hadir Parlimen

Posted: 24 Mar 2015 02:23 AM PDT


Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur hari ini menetapkan Jumaat untuk mendengar permohonan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berhubung kebenaran semakan kehakiman bagi mencabar keputusan Komisioner Jeneral Penjara yang menolak permohonannya untuk menghadiri mesyuarat pertama penggal ketiga Parlimen ke-13 yang berakhir 9 April ini.

Hakim Datuk Asmabi Mohamad menetapkan tarikh itu di dalam kamar dengan kehadiran Peguam Kanan Persekutuan Amarjeet Singh yang mewakili Menteri Dalam Negeri dan Komisioner Jeneral Penjara serta peguam Latheefa Koya yang mewakli Anwar.

Pada 18 Mac lepas, Anwar, 67, memfailkan permohonan itu dan menamakan  Menteri Dalam Negeri dan Komisioner Jeneral Penjara sebagai responden pertama dan kedua.

Beliau mengemukakan permohonan pengampunan untuk pembebasan itu pada 24 Februari lalu selepas Mahkamah Persekutuan mengekalkan hukuman penjara lima tahun ke atasnya kerana kesalahan meliwat pembantu peribadinya Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Anwar mendakwa keputusan kedua-dua responden yang tidak membenarkannya menghadiri sidang Dewan Rakyat tersebut adalah tidak berperlembagaan, tidak sah dan terbatal.

Beliau memohon satu perintah bahawa keputusan Komisioner Jeneral Penjara bertarikh 4 Mac lalu dipindahkan ke Mahkamah Tinggi dan dibatalkan melalui satu perintah certiorari.

Turut dipohon ialah perintah berbentuk mandamus yang mewajibkan Komisioner-Jeneral Penjara membenarkan Anwar menghadiri sidang Dewan Rakyat pada 9 Mac hingga 9 April dan satu deklarasi bahawa Anwar berhak menghadiri sidang tersebut.

Reformasi, cries Anwar’s three-year-old grandson

Posted: 24 Mar 2015 02:22 AM PDT


Chants of “Reformasi” and “Lawan tetap Lawan” are common whenever Anwar Ibrahim is present.

But at the Kuala Lumpur Syariah Court of Appeal today, the chants came from a child, the opposition leader’s three-year-old grandson.

Upon hearing this, Anwar could not resist smiling. He then approached the boy and carried him.

Even in his grandfather’s embrace, the toddler, believed to be the son of Nurul Nuha, continued to chant the slogans much to the amusement of all those present outside the courtroom.

Speaking to reporters, Anwar, who is serving a five-year prison sentence, said he has been spending a lot of time reading in his cell.

“I finished reading the Quran twice. I also read William Shakespeare and Bertrand Russell’s ‘A History of Western Philosophy’,” he said before being escorted out by prison authorities.

This was Anwar’s second appearance in court after the Federal Court upheld his sodomy conviction on Feb 10.

He seemed to be in high spirits when he met his family, including his wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. He chatted with them for about 10 minutes.

The opposition leader was accompanied by about 10 Prison Department officers.

Earlier, before the start of today’s proceedings, one of Anwar’s lawyer had asked the prison officers, who were carrying firearms, to leave to court room, to which the judges agreed.

Syariah Criminal Code Enactment in Kelantan

Posted: 19 Mar 2015 07:41 PM PDT


On the matter of the Syariah Criminal Code Enactment in Kelantan

KEADILAN has been following closely developments in Kelantan by PAS to amend the Syariah Criminal Code Enactment. We note that the bill was passed in the Kelantan State Assembly a few hours ago.

The move by PAS Kelantan to amend the said Enactment started a year ago, and KEADILAN has consistently engaged the PAS leadership, the Kelantan government and the DAP leadership with the view to find an amicable resolution to this difficult issue.

On 17th March 2015, KEADILAN's Political Bureau met and discussed in detail the matter and thereafter resolved and adopted the following positions.

Pakatan Rakyat Consensus

KEADILAN respects and is bound by the joint agreement on the matter of hudud by Pakatan Rakyat in 2011, which is as follows:
1.      That the implementation of hudud is not part of Pakatan Rakyat's common agenda;
2.      That the parties of Pakatan Rakyat, jointly respects PAS's position on the implementation of hudud as one of PAS's core political struggle and recognise that the Syariah Criminal Code Enactment 1993 was tabled before the formation of Pakatan Rakyat. As such, it is unreasonable for Pakatan Rakyat to expect PAS to drop the implementation of hudud from its political agenda; and
3.      That any common policy from Pakatan Rakyat must first obtain the collective agreement of all three parties. In the matter of hudud and in view of the existence of the Syariah Criminal Code Enactment 1993 before the formation of Pakatan Rakyat, there is no such collective agreement to implement hudud and as such the parties have come to an understanding "to agree to disagree".

On 8th February 2015, in the Pakatan Rakyat Council meeting, the Kelantan government's representative, Datuk Nik Amar, assured all in attendance that Kelantan will only propose 4 minor amendments to the original Enactment passed in 1993.

KEADILAN then accepted the assurance and noted that these amendments were not new laws but minor changes to the existing Enactment. Therefore, at the time, KEADILAN was of the view that Datuk Nik Amar's explanation was still within the confines of the joint agreement and consensus of Pakatan Rakyat reached in 2011.

KEADILAN was not given the so called draft amendments until 12th March 2015 (a week before tabling of the bill in the State Assembly). The document was in fact a voluminous draft Enactment and not mere amendments as described earlier by Datuk Nik Amar. Even though the content of the document is not very different from the 1993 Enactment, this voluminous presentation represents a clear departure from the 2011 Pakatan Rakyat agreement.

KEADILAN also regrets that this action by PAS Kelantan is also contrary to the spirit of consensus of the Pakatan Rakyat Council meeting on 8th February 2015.

Even though KEADILAN respects the rights of the PAS Kelantan government to table this Enactment, the PAS Kelantan government have a greater duty to adhere to all the previous agreements reached by Pakatan Rakyat on the matter.

Fiqh Alawiyyat, Maslahat Ummah and Maqassid Syariah
KEADILAN is of the view that every Muslim is obligated to accept hudud because the Al-Quran and Sunnah Rasulullah SAW has prescribed specific punishments for six wrongful acts. These wrongful acts are sariqa (theft), hiraba (armed robbery), zina (extra-marital sex), qazaf (false accusation), khamr (drinking alcohol), and ridda (apostate).

At the same time, KEADILAN also believes that Malaysians can differentiate the difference between accepting hudud as an act of faith, from the act of implementing hudud in society as an administrative and political act.
KEADILAN believes that while every Muslim is obligated to accept hudud, the manner in which it is to be implemented and legislated must be discussed and deliberated in the context of our current legal system and social norms.

KEADILAN also notes that the current discourse on hudud is not new. In fact, the issues surrounding the implementation of hudud has been explored and debated for hundreds of years by Islamic scholars and intellectuals. KEADILAN wishes to stress that our disagreement on the issues and mechanisms of implementing hudud should not be misinterpreted as a move of outright rejection of hudud.

KEADILAN takes the position that the sharia encompases all aspects of life and society. Apart from hudud and the six offences, the Sharia also covers issues of governance, diplomacy, economic management, and relations with non muslims, entities and bodies. Therefore, hudud is only one part of the sharia goals of Islam.

KEADILAN believes in prioritising the sharia goals of Islam. KEADILAN believes in the principles of fiqh alawiyyat (priority to most important principles), that is in matters of governance, priorities must be given to policies that directly benefit society. In this context, KEADILAN views social justice and the implementation of measures to better the people's welfare as much greater and higher priorities than the implementation of hudud on the six offences.

This does not mean that KEADILAN rejects what has been set by Allah SWT on the six offences. On the contrary, KEADILAN believes that the struggle to correct injustice and to look after the welfare of the people is much more important than hudud. The needs of the people for social justice and welfare are even greater now, in light of the recent tragic flood and widespread corruption and abuse of power by the ruling elites.

This position is similarly held by many moderate Islamic movements in the world, including the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Turkey led by President Tayyip Erdogan and the Nahdah Party in Tunisia led by the famous Muslim scholar, Sheikh Rachid al-Ghannouchi. Moreover, we note that the current PAS President, Dato Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, himself had previously agreed that the implementation of hudud is a lesser priority to the betterment of welfare of the people.

KEADILAN believes in engaging the people's understanding of Islamic laws based on the moderate and progressive concept of maqassid syariah. KEADILAN will continue to adhere and be guided by maqassid syariah in crafting policies that involve Islam.

Based on all the above considerations, KEADILAN therefore rejects the tabling of the hudud enactment in the Kelantan State Assembly today. KEADILAN has also instructed its sole state legislator in the Kelantan State Assembly, not to participate in the debate.

UMNO's hidden agenda
KEADILAN urge all Malaysians not to be misled by UMNO's trickery on the matter of the implementation of hudud. UMNO's aim is to cause dissension and disunity in the rank and file of its opponents.

UMNO will have no qualms to twist our words and differences and make us look like we are against the laws of Allah SWT. At the same, UMNO will try to create an image of themselves as the champions of Sharia laws. 

If UMNO is truly sincere and ready to implement hudud, surely its Trengganu state government would have completed the process with the support of the federal government. The refusal of UMNO to push further its hudud plans in Trengganu is proof that UMNO is only interested to politicise the hudud issue in Kelantan.

KEADILAN urges all Malaysians to stay united and refocus our efforts to change the federal government so that the best interests of all will be protected.

Pindaan Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II Dilulskan Di Dewan Undangan Negeri Kelantan

Posted: 19 Mar 2015 12:36 AM PDT

19 MAC 2015


KEADILAN mengikuti dengan dekat perkembangan sehingga lulusnya pindaan-pindaan kepada Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II di Dewan Undangan Negeri Kelantan pada hari ini. Sejak cadangan pindaan ini timbul lebih setahun lalu, KEADILAN telah duduk berbincang dengan pimpinan PAS dan Kerajaan Kelantan serta pimpinan DAP untuk mencari jalan terbaik kepada isu ini.

Biro Politik KEADILAN telah bermesyuarat pada 17 Mac 2015 dan membincangkan dengan khusus pindaan-pindaan Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II.

Muafakat Pakatan Rakyat
KEADILAN terikat dan menghormati keputusan bersama mengenai pelaksanaan hudud yang dicapai di dalam Pakatan Rakyat dalam tahun 2011 seperti berikut:
1. Pelaksanaan hudud bukanlah agenda bersama Pakatan Rakyat
2. Walau bagaimana pun, parti-parti Pakatan Rakyat menghormati bahawa pelaksanaan hudud telah menjadi dasar perjuangan PAS dan Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah 1993 dibentangkan sebelum Pakatan Rakyat ditubuhkan. Oleh itu, adalah tidak munasabah bagi PAS menggugurkan pelaksanaan hudud daripada agendanya
3. Sebarang dasar atau pelaksanaan dasar yang melibatkan Pakatan Rakyat perlulah mendapat persetujuan bersama ketiga-tiga parti
Keputusan bersama ini sering dirujuk sebagai "agree to disagree" mengambil kira Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah 1993 telah wujud sebelum Pakatan Rakyat.
Oleh sebab itu, apabila wakil Kerajaan Kelantan Datuk Nik Amar memaklumkan kepada mesyuarat Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat pada 8 Februari 2015 bahawa rang undang-undang yang bakal dibentangkan hanyalah pindaan empat (4) perkara ke atas enakmen yang telah diluluskan dalam tahun 1993, KEADILAN mengambil sikap menghormati bahawa pindaan itu bukanlah undang-undang baru dan tidak mengubah status sedia ada. Oleh yang demikian, pindaan seperti yang dimaklumkan oleh Datuk Nik Amar itu masih berada di dalam kerangka persetujuan bersama dan muafakat Pakatan Rakyat mengenai hudud yang dicapai dalam tahun 2011.

Walau bagaimana pun, KEADILAN tidak diberikan draf pindaan sehinggalah minggu lepas iaitu pada 12 Mac 2015 (seminggu sebelum dibentangkan di Dewan Undangan Negeri). Draf yang dibentangkan itu bukanlah pindaan empat (4) perkara seperti yang dimaklumkan oleh Datuk Nik Amar tetapi merupakan pembentangan keseluruhan enakmen setebal 34 muka surat. Walaupun kandungannya tidak banyak berbeza dari enakmen asal tahun 1993, ia tidak lagi mematuhi muafakat bersama yang dipersetujui oleh Pakatan Rakyat dalam 2011 mengenai pelaksanaan hudud.

Oleh yang demikian, KEADILAN melahirkan rasa kesal kerana persetujuan dalam mesyuarat Pakatan Rakyat bertarikh 8 Februari 2015 tidak dihormati dan sekaligus bertentangan dengan muafakat bersama yang dicapai dalam tahun 2011 mengenai perkara ini.

Sedang KEADILAN menghormati hak dan pendirian Kerajaan Kelantan untuk membentangkan enakmen ini, adalah lebih afdal jika Kerajaan Kelantan juga menghormati persetujuan yang dibuatnya sebelum ini di peringkat Pakatan Rakyat.

Fiqh Al-Awlawiyyat, Maslahat Ummah dan Maqasid Syariah
KEADILAN berpendirian bahawa setiap yang beragama Islam wajib menerima hukum hudud kerana Al-Quran dan sunnah Rasulullah SAW telah menetapkan hukuman-hukuman bagi enam salah laku iaitu sariqah (mencuri), hirabah (rompakan bersenjata), zina (persetubuhan di luar perkahwinan), qazaf (tuduhan palsu mengenai kemuliaan seseorang), syurb (meminum arak) dan riddah (murtad).

Pada masa yang sama, KEADILAN juga percaya bahawa rakyat Malaysia boleh membezakan di antara penerimaan ketetapan hudud terhadap enam kesalahan tersebut dengan kaedah melaksanakan ketetapan hudud itu di dalam sesebuah masyarakat. Sementara setiap yang beragama Islam wajib menerima ketetapan hukuman hudud, kaedah mengkanunkan dan melaksanakan hukuman hudud itu dalam konteks sistem undang-undang dan suasana sesebuah masyarakat boleh dibincangkan.

Malah, peraturan dan kaedah dalam melaksanakan hukuman hudud seperti yang biasa diutarakan sekarang adalah hasil dari perbincangan ulama dan ilmuwan selama beribu tahun yang kini membentuk pengetahuan kita mengenai kaedah mengkanunkan hukuman hudud. Oleh sebab itu, KEADILAN berharap perbezaan pendapat mengenai kaedah mengkanunkan dan melaksanakan hudud tidak disalahertikan seolah-olah menolak ketetapan hukuman hudud.

KEADILAN mengambil pendirian bahawa syariat Islam merangkumi kesemua ruang hidup dan bermasyarakat. Selain dari hukuman hudud ke atas enam kesalahan di atas, syariat Islam turut meliputi persoalan perkerajaanan, diplomatik, tatacara ekonomi, hubungan dengan bukan Islam dan perkara muamalah lain-lain. Makanya, kanun hudud seperti yang diterjemahkan ke dalam Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II pada hari ini adalah sebahagian dari syariat besar Islam.

Oleh sebab itulah, KEADILAN berbeza pandangan mengenai keutamaan yang perlu didahulukan dalam melaksanakan syariat Islam yang menyeluruh ini. KEADILAN percaya bahawa memutuskan keutamaan masyarakat adalah sebahagian dari pertimbangan fiqh al-awlawiyyat (keutamaan amalan/dasar) yang boleh dibincangkan di dalam sesebuah masyarakat. Dalam perkembangan mutakhir, KEADILAN meletakkan keutamaan kepada memperbetulkan ketidakadilan di dalam masyarakat dan membela kebajikan rakyat sebagai keutamaan yang lebih tinggi dari melaksanakan undang-undang hudud ke atas enam kesalahan tadi mengikut kaedah fiqh al-awlawiyyat.

Ini bukanlah bermakna KEADILAN menolak ketetapan Allah SWT di dalam enam kesalahan mengikut hudud seperti yang sering dipolitikkan. Sebaliknya, KEADILAN percaya perjuangan memperbetulkan ketidakadilan dalam masyarakat dan membela kebajikan rakyat lebih utama dalam menyelesaikan maslahat ummah sekarang terutamanya dengan berlatar belakangkan masalah kebajikan rakyat selepas musibah banjir, tekanan hidup terhadap rakyat akibat rasuah dan salahguna kuasa pemerintah terhadap rakyat.

Pendirian sebegini juga dipegang oleh gerakan-gerakan Islam ternama di dunia termasuk Parti Kemajuan dan Keadilan (AKP) di Turki yang dipimpin Presiden Tayyeb Erdogan dan Parti An-Nahdah di Tunisia yang dipimpin pemikir Islam ternama Sheikh Rashid al-Ghannouchi. Malah, pendirian bahawa pelaksanaan hudud bukanlah keutamaan utama dalam masyarakat juga merupakan pendirian yang diambil oleh Presiden PAS, Dato' Seri Abdul Hadi Awang sebelum ini.

KEADILAN percaya bahawa penekanan perlu diberikan untuk meninggikan kefahaman rakyat kepada matlamat undang-undang Islam dilaksanakan seperti yang dituntut di dalam maqasid syariah. KEADILAN akan terus berpegang dan berpandukan kepada maqasid syariah dalam membuat pendirian mengenai dasar-dasar yang melibatkan rakyat.

Oleh yang demikian, mengambil kira pertimbangan-pertimbangan ini, KEADILAN mengambil pendirian yang berbeza mengenai keutamaan melaksanakan hukuman hudud seperti yang dibentangkan di Dewan Undangan Negeri Kelantan pada hari ini. Oleh itu, KEADILAN telah mengarahkan calon tunggal KEADILAN di Dewan Undangan Negeri Kelantan untuk tidak menyertai perbahasan dan pengundian bersabit Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II Kelantan pada hari ini.

Muslihat Umno
KEADILAN menyeru semua rakyat Malaysia yang cintakan keadilan, kesejahteraan dan kemuliaan insan supaya tidak mudah tertipu dengan muslihat Umno yang mempolitikkan pelaksanaan hukum hudud untuk memecah belahkan perpaduan rakyat menentang Umno.

Perbezaan pendapat mengenai fiqh al-awlawiyyat melaksanakan hukuman hudud ini akan diputar belitkan seolah-olah mereka yang meletakkan keutamaan tuntutan syariat Islam manakala yang lain menolak hukum Allah SWT.

Jika benar Umno benar-benar ikhlas dan bersedia untuk melaksanakan hukuman hudud, sudah tentu Kerajaan Negeri Terengganulah yang memulakan langkah dan disambut oleh Kerajaan Persekutuan di peringkat Parlimen. Keengganan Umno selama ini adalah bukti bahawa Umno hanya berminat mempolitikkan hudud di saat nyawanya di hujung tanduk.

KEADILAN menyeru seluruh rakyat Malaysia kembali fokus kepada usaha menukar kerajaan persekutuan agar kepentingan rakyat dalam semua aspek dapat diperjuangkan.
