Malaysia's ICC stance a losing gambit
       by M.Kulasegaran, MP and lawyer,published by Malaysiakini
Four years ago, Malaysia was on the verge of joining the International Criminal Court (ICC) but technical scruples prevented our deposition of the instrument of accession.

These scruples had to do with the perceived impact on our sovereignty of the Rome Statue of the ICC which bars genocide and crimes against humanity.

One hundred and 23 nations have already signed up with the ICC and even the Philippines and Maldives, which like Malaysia in 2011 had mulled ICC accession, went ahead and enlisted.


But Malaysia, after the cabinet had given approval in April 2011, drew back from deposting the instrument of accession.

“The spirit was willing but the flesh was weak,” quipped lawyer M Kulasegaran, DAP MP for Ipoh Barat, in reference to Malaysia's reluctance to follow-through.

Kulasegaran is secretary of the Malaysia chapter of Parliamentarians for Global Acion (PGA), a NGO pressing for wider acceptance of ICC membership and a slew of other initiatives that would bind nations into what Lord Alfred Tennyson called the “Parliament of man, the federation of the world” in a famous poem Locksley Hall that was a hymn for the universality of civilising values. 

Malaysia's reluctance to sign up with the ICC stems from lingering anxiety on the impact on our sovereignty – of our rulers especially – on issues where immunity is not recognised by the ICC for any person as titular head of a group that may be deemed to have committed a crime against humanty.

Malaysia is not exactly pristine on these issues, but we are a long way from the magnitude that would make the commission of such crimes culpable before the ICC.

Bring perpetrators to justice

A matter like the downing of a civilian aircraft like MH17 in Ukraine in July last year would, had Malaysia been a member of ICC, been deemed a crime against humanity and a complaint by an ICC member would have bound the court to investigate and apportion blame, determine punishment and award restitution.

“Had we gone ahead and acceded to the ICC, we would be in a good position to bring the perpetrators of the downing of MH17 to justice,” opined Kulasegaran.

He observed that a protest lodged with the United Nations security council ran the risk of incurring a veto from permanent member Russia which is an interested party in the civil war raging in parts of 
Ukraine .
 

“Acceding to the ICC would have obviated the effect of the Russia's objections and we could have secured justice for the victims of the crime of the downing of MH17,” argued Kulasegaran.

After organising a seminar on the 'International Rule of Law and Protection of Civilians', hosted by the Parliament in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday, Kulasegaran is off this weekend to the Marshall Islands in the Pacific for another round of PGA meetings.

“If we want to acquire moral stature as a rotating member of the UN security council and as chair of Asean, both of which we enjoy this year and next, we have to become a member of the ICC.

“We can't stay aloof from this international court if we wish to hold forth on issues of crimes against humanity such as the actions of the Israeli government in Gaza,” he said.

“Signing up with the ICC is a proposition that's no longer deferrable,” asserted the four-term parliamentarian who is national vice chair of the DAP.

Get out, Kula tells trustees of Vivekandanda

 | April 5, 2015
Ashram leaders have lost touch with the public interest, says MP
Kulasegaran_Vivekananda_600KUALA LUMPUR: Trustees of Vivekananda Ashram in Brickfields have been urged to step down and allow more responsible and caring people to manage the historic building.
DAP national vice-chairman M Kula Segaran said today that the trustees had lost touch with public needs and interests by rejecting a government proposal to preserve and conserve the ashram as a national heritage.
The Heritage Department issued a conservation notice on Jan 14 to the trustees.
However the trustees rejected the proposal, and proposed to go ahead with redevelopment on the ashram site and the surrounding area to numerous open protests and signature campaigns by concerned citizens.
“The trustees should just leave. Let people who have the heart and soul to manage the Ashram in the interest of the people,” said Kula, who is MP for Ipoh Barat.
He reminded the trustees of the words of Swami Vivekananda about truth: “Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.”
He urged the lay public to force out the trustees. “Let us tell the trustees, the so called intelligent people, the truth and demand they leave, the sooner the better,” he said.
The Vivekananda Ashram site has been earmarked for a proposed a 23-storey residential tower with 264 apartment and an eight-storey car park.
Public protests have mounted against demolition of the ashram. Kula said the redevelopment would change the character of Brickfields and erase the historic ashram. “This must not be allowed to happen.”
Culture and Tourism Minister Nazri Abdul Aziz has promised to hold an open hearing on the issue soon to resolve the problem. Kula said he was confident that Nazri would stand by the people and announce a “win win” formula to resolve the issue.
Kula said the ashram was not the only heritage site in danger of being wiped out by redevelopment projects. “Many other places in the country if left unchecked in the name of modernisation will erase our cultural and heritage links by the overriding and powerful interest of the commercial people,” he said.
