Aliran Sues Murad
Thank you very much for giving some coverage to the above in your newspapers today. Two pertinent points pertaining to the suit, however, have either been overlooked or ignored, i.e.
1. Aliran has decided that it will not profit from Murad's lie by claiming anything for itself. The entire sum that is being claimed for damages will be used to set up a foundation from which funds will be made available to Malaysian NGOs and individuals fighting for the causes of justice, freedom, multi-ethnic and multi-religious co-operation and unity.
2. Aliran has also made public its accounts for the period 1992-1999 for public scrutiny, thus becoming the first public interest group to do so. We are a very transparent and accountable organisation and we do not fear or have any apprehension about being open about our accounts. We hope that, in all fairness, this letter will be published.
