Malaysia: Cease Arbitrary Detention and Deportation of Human Rights Defenders

We the undersigned civil society strongly condemn the detention and subsequent deportation of Adilur Rahman Khan on 20 July 2017 and express our grave concerns on the growing trend in Malaysia where local activists are not allowed to leave the country while activists from other countries are not allowed to enter into Malaysia.

Adilur Rahman Khan, an advocate of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh and Secretary of Odhikar arrived in Malaysia from Dhaka, Bangladesh at 4.50AM (+8GMT) on 20th July 2017 to attend the Second General Assembly Meeting of the Anti-Death Penalty Asia Network (ADPAN). Upon arrival, he was refused entry and shown a piece of paper with two words meaning ‘suspect’ written in Malay. Till this day, the reason for denying his entry and his detention is still not explained by the Government of Malaysia.

During his detention by the Immigration Department of Malaysia, his phone and laptop was taken by the immigration officers and he was not allowed access to any lawyers. A lawyer also had difficulties reaching him as the immigration officers repeatedly failed to provide an answer as to the reason of his detention and refused to identify the officer-in-charge of Adilur’s detention. The lawyer’s attempt to visit him directly at Kuala Lumpur International Airport was further blocked through bureaucratic procedures wherein the lawyer was informed that no access would be given to Adilur without the lawyer having obtained permission from the immigration officers, who were refusing to respond.

Subsequent pressure by the lawyer resulted in an answer by an immigration officer that the detention was due to an order by the Royal Malaysian Police. The contact number of the investigating officer from Bukit Aman was handed to the lawyer. The contact number proved to be useless as the investigating officer refused all communications and actively rejected phone calls from activists and lawyers alike throughout the day. Communication with Adilur was only re-established following a visit by the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (SUHAKAM) later in the evening.

The Government of Malaysia has obligations and has made commitments to respect and protect human rights defenders and their work. These are reflected in the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders,[1] which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1998 by consensus, including of Malaysia. They are reflected as well as for instance the most recent UN General Assembly Resolution on Human Rights Defenders adopted in 2015,[2] for which the Government of Malaysia specifically voted in favour. Malaysia is also presenting itself as a candidate for election as a member of the UN Human Rights Council, a process which the UN General Assembly has prescribed should take into account the country’s record on human rights.[3]

The treatment of human rights defender Adilur Rahman Khan is, in the light of these obligations and commitments, wholly unacceptable. The Government of Malaysia must immediately give a detailed explanation for the circumstances of this case, apologize, and provide evidence it has taken measures to ensure that he and other human rights defenders are not subjected to such treatment again in future.

We also call for the Government of Malaysia to:

1) Reveal the reasons for interference with human rights defenders seeking to enter into Malaysia, including for purposes of attending international meetings for the purpose of promoting and protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms;[4]

2) Ensure that no human rights defenders are prevented from entering or exiting Malaysia by reason of having been named or included in any list on the basis of their activities promoting or protecting human rights, whether named or listed by a foreign government or the authorities of Malaysia;

3) Enact domestic legislation to incorporate the provisions of the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders into the national laws of Malaysia, to ensure the future protection of human rights defenders and their work, having regard for instance to the Model Law developed by a wide range of global stakeholders and leading experts and jurists in 2016.[5]

For further information, please contact Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) at suaram@suaram.net or +603 7954 5724.
