Our nationals were subjected to degrading treatment at immigration check points. Stripping naked was definitely on the menu. The US of A is one such government, another paranoid government was Israel. They were making the case that this is justifiable and necessary in the "war on terror". Wow! Terrer nyer!
I was wondering. During that period ya, were there similar press outrage? Were the Ministers fighting for a say on the matter as well? Did our Goverment voiced a protest and defended the rights of our citizens?
I know one of our men who had to go through the ill-treatment. He was based in the US of A and his work had required him to travel to Israel. Every single time, passing through the immigration check points had meant he had to strip naked, at both ends. After one encounter where he and his wife had to strip naked in front of his children, he quit his job and came home for good.
I had written to protest against torture and ill-treatment in the "war on terror". Tengok2 in my own backyard oso got the same pattern one. Ak eneee!!! Shy only.
Farish A Noor's say on the same matter.
