This is a set of posts about the Pekan Nanas detention facilities run by Malaysia Immigration, the people in their different roles, significant events and much of the inhumane and cruel conditions, hidden injustices, griefs, and the human rights abuses.

There are six articles posted and these are as below:

All these six posts when read together gives a clearer picture about what Pekan Nanas is all about, the kind of facilities lacking in human decency and human rights that it has to be shrouded in secrecy away from the public eyes.

An account from witnessing it All first hand

As I had the privilege to witness all these while being locked inside, I believe that it is of public interest to document all these as accurate as possible for public awareness. However more posts could be added as I recollects more of other notable incidents that I had witnessed.

There is nothing that will be hidden in secrecy no matter how shrouded the reality is.

The bible in Luke 12:3 reads: "Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops."
