Two Faces: Detention Without Trial

TWO FACES records Syed Husin Ali's experiences during his six-year detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA). His detention followed a spate of demonstrations in 1974 by students who supported the peasants in Baling, Kedah, and protested against poverty and the rise in prices of daily necessities.

Toward the end of the second year of his detention at Kamunting, he was put in solitary confinement for six months in an unknown place in Kuala Lumpur. During this time he was interrogated and subjected to all kinds of torture and harassment.

There was an attempt to implicate him with a number of politicians and journalists who were then detained for alleged involvement in a "communist conspiracy" in Singapore and Malaysia. Interestingly, there were also attempts to implicate some senior UMNO leaders, including Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

TWO FACES links some personal experiences of the author with the social and political context of the time.

Dua Wajah: Tahanan Tanpa Bicara

DUA WAJAH ialah catitan pengalaman Syed Husin yang ditahan hamper enam tahun di bawah Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA). Beliau ditahan berikutan demonstrasi pelajar yang menyokong petani-petani Baling dan membantah kemiskinan serta kenaikan harga barang pada tahun 1974.

Selepas ditahan hampir dua tahun di Kamunting, beliau dikurung secara berseorangan selama enam bulan ditempat yang tidak diketahui di Kuala Lumpur. Semasa itu, beliau disoal-siasat dan dikenakan berbagai-bagai penyeksaan serta deraan.

Beliau cuba dibabitkan dengan beberapa orang tokoh politik serta wartawan yang telah ditahan atas tuduhan terlibat dengan apa yang didakwa sebagai "konspirasi komunis" di Singapura dan Malaysia. Yang menarik perhatian ialah percubaan untuk membabitkan juga beberapa orang pemimpin kanan UMNO ketika itu, termasuk Dr. Mahathir.

DUA WAJAH menarik kerana pengalaman peribadi dikaitkan dengan beberapa latar belakang social dan politik pada masa itu.
