Hail Malik Imtiaz !!!

delCapo is honoured to call Malik Imtiaz a friend, a fellow blogger… he is someone whom I admire alot as a writer, a kick ass lawyer… above all, a very decent human being….

disQuiet at work

the triumpant RPK legal team

Even in times of great achievement and triump, like when he led the team who won RPK’s freedom from ISA, he has always been humble & philosophical… never for a second gloated or even publicly given himself enough credit….

Now he is a receipent of an international the human rights award –  “2009 Bindmans Law and Campaigning Award” for his body of work for human rights in the past 10 years (check out his article “The truth about Malaysia”).. his reaction (on The Malaysian Insider)?

Imtiaz said he was “happy” and honoured by the award which seemed to justify his efforts in pushing the human rights campaign here over the last 10 years.

“It’s good because it gives the opportunity to focus on what is happening here and the restrictive attitudes faced, including freedom of expression which undermines democracy,” he said.

But he noted the award was a double-edged sword, which drew undesirable attention to Malaysia.

“At the same time, it’s sad. There were other people from Egypt, Zimbabwe, a Filipino who were nominated for their struggle to change the system.

“What does this say about our country? The world now sees us on par with Zimbabwe and Egypt,” Imtiaz highlighted, adding that it was “not a great honour” for Malaysia to be associated with the democratically resistant countries like Zimbabwe and Egypt.

In this cynical world,  qualifications, recognitions, status can often be bought…. but CLASS is priceless.

Malik Imtiaz.. u are a class above….. congratulations, my friend….
