Another date set for Chin Peng's case hearing

The Kuala Lumpur High Court was today told that the four defendants named by Communist Party of Malaya veteran Chin Peng (left) have still not filed their affidavits of defence yet.

The Court, presided by Md. Raus bin Sharif, has fixed 28 August as a new date for the hearing of the case to be formally conducted.

Chin Peng's homecoming case was first filed with the Penang High Court on 4 March last year.

The four defandants named by Chin Peng are the Government of Malaysia, Home Affairs Minister, Inspector-General of Police and Chief of Defence Forces. They were represented by two Senior Federal Counsels.

Representing Chin Peng in the court today were Penang's Darshan Singh Khaira (left) and Ipoh's Chan Kok Keong.

According to Kok Keong (left), in relation to his homecoming case, Chin Peng has also filed another application for him to be allowed to enter Malaysia temporarily to attend the hearing of his case as a litigant. Also according to Kok Keong, the 1989 Peace Accords clearly provides for the entry of CPM members residing outside Malaysia for visit even though they have never been citizens.

In their memoirs, veterans of the Communist Party of Malaya Abdullah CD, Rashid Maidin, Suriani Abdullah aka Eng Ming Ching and Abu Samah Mohd Kassim write about their visits to Malaysia in 1990s. Some other veterans like Ibrahim Chik now lives in Malaysia.

Last year, Chin Peng also filed another application alleging the Government to be in breach of the 1989 Peace Accords by making public statements that are against the spirit and letters of Item 1.2 of the Administrative Arrangments Between The Government Of Malaysia And The Communist Party Of Malaya Pursuant To The Agreement To Terminate Hostilities which stipulates that: " All press statements issued by either Party thereafter shall be in the spirit of the Agreement and shall not contain any slanderous terms such as 'mass surrender' and 'capitulation' "

Together with the Agreement Between The Government Of Malaysia And The Communist Party Of Malaya To Terminate Hostilities, the Administrative Arrangement Between The Government Of Malaysia And The Communist Party Of Malaya Pursuant To The Agreement To Terminate Hostilities constitute what is generally or popularly known as the 1989 Peace Accords.

The Agreement Between The Government Of Malaysia And The Communist Party of Malaya To Terminate Hostilities were signed for and on behalf of the Government of Malaysia by (a) Dato' Hj. Wan Sidek bin Hj. Wan Abdul Rahman as Secretary-General of the Ministry of Home Affairs, (b) General Tan Sri Hashim bin Mohd. Ali as Chief of Defence Forces, and (c) Tan Sri Mohd Haniff bin Omar as Inspector General, Royal Malaysia Police; while the signatories of the Communist Party of Malaya were (d) Ong Boon Hua @ Chin Peng as Secretary-General, (e) Abdullah C.D as Chairman and (f) Rashid Maidin as Central Committee Member.

The Administrative Arrangement Between The Government of Malaysia And The Communist Party of Malaya Pursuant To The Agreement To Terminate Hostilities were signed for and on behalf of the Government of Malaysia by (a) Datuk Abdul Rahim bin Mohd. Noor as Deputy Inspector-General, Royal Malaysia Police and (b) Dato Zulkifli bin Abdul Rahman as Director of Special Branch, Royal Malaysia Police, while the Communist Party of Malaya's signatories were (c) Ong Boon Hua @ Chin Peng as Secretary-General and (d) Rashid Maidin as Central Committee Member.
