While in office, Tun Abdullah never thought of abolishing ISA, but now he said he would, had he been given more time.

Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi revealed yesterday that he would have abolished the Internal Security Act (ISA) if he has had more time during his term as prime minister.

Lauding Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s move to review the act, Abdullah hoped the government would be able to introduce a new preventive detention system, which placed a limit on the scope of arrest and one that pleased the rakyat.

Mere wishful thinking, but you can continue reading it at here.
