Over 40,000 signatures demanding Maria's release

  • The ipetition.com #BebasMaria and #MansuhSOSMA petition has drawn over 40,000 signatures from concerned netizens demanding the unconditional release of Maria Chin Abdullah and the abolition of SOSMA.

PETALING JAYA, Nov 23 (MySinchew) -- The #BebasMaria and #MansuhSOSMA online petition on ipetition.com has drawn more than 40,000 signatures from concerned netizens demanding the unconditional release of Bersih 2.0 chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah and the abolition of Security Offenses (Special Measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA).

The petition says, "When tabling the bill in Parliament in 2011, the government assured and promised Malaysians repeatedly that SOSMA will not be used on the basis of difference in political ideology, but it is evident today that the administration led by Prime Minister Najib Razak is reneging on its promise.

"In our view, this is a clear abuse of legislative and executive powers."
