While our Foreign Ministry continues to prepare to update us on the two Malaysians in Gitmo, something they have been pretending to do since Abdullah Ahmad Badawi forgot to raise the issue during his meeting with the US President, we now learn (thanks to the Independent) that the two will face 'Military Tribunals" starting tomorrow. These tribunals are secret proceedings which have come under intense condemnation by human rights activists and foreign governments but not Malaysia, the chairman of OIC.
Click here to read what will happen to the 14 "most dangerous men", including the two Malaysians; here to that day last October when the PM said he did not manage to raise the matter of the two Malaysians in Gitmo with Bush given their intense discussion on efforts to achieve peace and understanding in the world (Nevertheless, he said the Malaysian embassy in Washington had been in touch with the US government over Kuala Lumpur's concern that the two detainees should be fairly treated when they face the American legal process. Present at the meeting with Bush then was Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar).
Thanks, Justin, for the update on Gitmo.
