Kuala Lumpur, Dec.29: Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has said that the United States must mind its own business in regard to Malaysia's application of the Internal Security Act.
Responding to a statement by the US State Department on Thursday on the arrests under the ISA of the five Hindraf leaders that said that Washington expected Kuala Lumpur to provide full protection to them under Malaysian law, Razak said: "Can they first of all give a fair trial to the detainees in Guantanamo Bay? We'll only respond if they do so." He was speaking after the 36th annual Malaysia-Indonesia General Border Committee meeting at Nikko Hotel here on Friday.
His reference was to the terrorist suspects held without trial at a facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Razak claimed that the Hindraf had been given ample advice and warnings since it staged an illegal demonstration on November 25 before the ISA was brought into play.
