Malaysian Immigration authorities' two unlawful detentions
This page is all about articles related to as well as news concerning the Malaysian Immigration authorities' two illegal, unlawful and unconstitutional detentions.
It was with great relief and jubilation for me on that glorious morning of 12th day of Sept 2022 to receive news of a victory in the Kuala Lumpur High Court for my legal challenge against the Malaysian Immigration authorities.
This was the second victory against the Malaysian Immigration authorities for unlawfully detaining me from 27th March 2018 to 3rd April 2018 (8 days).
Similarly on 4th May 2021, it was greeted with much jubilation on the news of the first victory against the Malaysian Immigration authorities for unlawfully detaining me from 13th March 2018 to 26th March 2018 (13 days).
Why huge relief and jubilation? Because the truth has finally prevailed and the truth that I was subjected to not one but two unlawful detentions by the Malaysian Immigration authorities is now set in stone.
It was a massive win for all victims of past unlawful detentions of foreigners and foreign migrant workers. It is only fair to say that the Malaysia Immigration Act is anti-foreigner and anti-human rights seen from the legal fact of these two unlawful detentions.
These two unlawful detentions or wrongful confinements, the term used in the Malaysia Penal Code Act 574 is a criminal offence under section 342 to 348 (whichever section is applicable).
Equality of justice is universal
The Malaysian FC Art. 8(1) enshrines the following:
“All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law.”
I was detained illegally for 26 days in hostile, oppressive and inhumane immigration detention depot. For this abuse of human rights, I have made police reports to the Malaysian police. By the same token, in accordance with FC Art. 8 law, immigration officers perpetrating these crimes must be penalized in accordance with the Penal Code.

Presenting “manufactured” evidence to challenge facts
This post shares about the part 2 illegal detention by the immigration officers at their whims and fancies in disregard to court order of discharge that was issued after I paid the fine. Instead of any valid reasons or explanations, the immigration department produced two orders that I have never seen before and alleged that I was served and accepted.
Does the State condone illegal detentions
With the court declaration orders on two detentions as illegal, it has proven that Immigration officers had abused their power to detain foreigners at their whims and fancies. Such abuse of authority to commit wrongful confinement, against helpless and defenseless non-citizen victims is a criminal offence.

With the dismissal by the appeal court, the path to clear my name of the immigration offence and to lift the lifetime immigration blacklist came to a dead end.
Earlier on 4-5-2021, I have won one court victory for the illegal detention from 14-3-2018 to 26-3-2018. And from both court process, I have obtained a few findings of facts that are very useful.
