Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI)’s campaign to call for the release of all detainees particularly those who have been detained for 6 years under the ISA was announced in a press conference held in the Chinese Assembly Hall on 11 April 2008.

It is also to be noted that the Bar Council Human Rights Committee has been actively involved in these on-going efforts. Apart from providing legal representation to the detainees, the Committee plans to conduct fortnightly rotational visits by teams of lawyers to the Kamunting camp in batches of 8 lawyers per team. For those who are interested to be part of the teams, kindly email Syamsuriatina Ishak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
