Kuala Lumpur, May 21 : The five leaders of the Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) have filed an application for a judicial review of the Federal Court decision which rejected their habeas corpus appeal.

The law firm Karpal Singh and Company and the Federal Court Registrar's office filed the application in Putra Jaya on Tuesday afternoon. Singh is representing the HINDRAF five in court, the Bernama news agency and the New Strait Times reported.

On May 14, a three-judge panel of the Federal Court, headed by Judge Alauddin Mohamad Sheriff, unanimously determined that the order for their detention at the ISA camp in Kamunting, Taiping, by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who was also the Internal Security Minister then, was lawfully executed.
