De facto Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim has tendered his resignation over the government’s use of the Internal Security Act, which allows detention without trial, against three individuals last week.
According to a reliable source, Zaid’s resignation letter was delivered to the Prime Minister’s Office at around 2pm today.
However, Zaid could not be reached for comments but is expected to call a press conference later today.
The minister has expressed his disagreement with last Friday’s ISA dragnet where DAP parliamentarian and Selangor senior exco Teresa Kok, controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin and Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng were held for allegedly being a threat to national security.
