Ul-Haque 'the man who wants to become a doctor'

THE Un-Australian Newspaper this morning says Ul-Haque saw West as 'animals'.

Not far wrong either if you ask most Australians who have just witnessed those pictures from Iraq in relation to how they are treating prisoners of the occupation.

Are the West Animals? You bet! Don't be fooled by corporate propaganda invading our personal lives telling us stories about the politics of fear without looking at the way they are behaving first.

The people who have most to fear are the people who are throwing stones and making other people stand on a box with wires connected to their limbs and personals threatening electrocution and depriving them of human ethical standards.

Allegedly, when Mr Izhar Ul-Haque enrolled in a training camp in Pakistan last year, he was fed up with Westerners and their "animal type of lifestyle", a court heard yesterday.

Allegedly, In a letter to his parents, Mr Ul-Haque says he wanted to undergo weapons and combat training and eventually expected to die a martyr for a Pakistani group.

When he returned to Sydney after the camp, Customs officials allegedly found 30 books in his luggage including handwritten notes about rocket launchers, landmines, tanks and multi-purpose machineguns. Material you could probably get off the Internet or your local Pakistan library.

Mr Ul-Haque, 21, was charged earlier this month by the Federal-NSW Police Joint Counter-Terrorism Task Force with training with the group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

The taskforce is investigating French man Willie Brigitte, [another scapegoat for the Coalition of the Killing's resource war's in the Middle East], who was tipped back home for a visa breach. Allegedly the Un-Australian Newspaper claimed he also attended training camps before his six-month stay in Sydney.

Police have not alleged Mr Ul-Haque knew Brigitte. The Un-Australian zionists just mentioned it because they are, 'you guessed it' up John Howard's butt and they, like the USA want, 'you guessed it,' our Federal Government. Well Yankee go home!

Mr Ul-Haque allegedly told investigators before his arrest that the three-week camp was "the first step in the ladder" and simply gave members of the Pakistani community a taste of jihad as part of their religion.

Self defence against oppression?

"It's like kindergarten," Mr Ul-Haque allegedly told investigators, the court heard.

Sounds like self-defence training? Well if you have to live or go to Pakistan perhaps.

Lawyers for Mr Ul-Haque yesterday applied for bail for the medical student, who is held in solitary confinement in a maximum-security jail. Where incidentally you don't get medical treatment on call. For self-harm? Caused by the conditions prisoners will be housed in at the HARM-U. Goulburn's Guantanamo bay.

Doctor Ron Woodham I presume?

"The Commissioner has ultimate responsibility for prisoners welfare and for security. The Commissioner has the right to decide that security overrides all other issues, [including medical?], but in doing so takes the responsibility for any adverse clinical outcomes where Corrections Health Service advice has been overridden."

Dictatorship under the Crimes Act?

[War criminal], Attorney General Phillip Ruddock said yesterday under the Crimes Act Izhar Ul Haque committed a crime.

[But he means under the Draconian Law Act they just made up?]

In any case the real crime was preventing 21-year-old young man decide for himself what is wrong and what is right. What a disgrace! Under the heading further education.

The criminal Federal Government has applauded the work of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) after an arrest of a man accused of training with a terrorist organisation. [Just plain rubbish and propaganda initiated by Draconian Laws.]

Why would you applaud them? Ul Haque was profiled and nailed to the wall before he could even get a grip on his wisdom.

The Un Australian: The court heard Mr Ul-Haque had been frustrated at failing his second year of medicine at the University of NSW, as well as unhappy experiences with patients during his training in Sydney hospitals.

"The Western patients in hospitals look at me as though I'm a frog," he says in one letter, the court was told.

He travelled to Pakistan, where his parents now live, before joining the camp. After reading his letter, his father and his brother went to the camp to try to convince him to return to Australia.

Deciding against the combat lifestyle, he returned to Sydney to resume his studies.

Counsel for Mr Ul-Haque, Ian Barker QC, said the student, now in his fourth year of medicine, was being held for political reasons and likened his detention to "our own version of Guantanamo Bay".

A former high school principal described Mr Ul-Haque as an extremely bright, co-operative and courteous student. Friends gave evidence on his behalf, and 130 UNSW students signed a petition supporting his release.

His two brothers, both accountants in Sydney, told the court they would care for Mr Ul-Haque if released.

Bail was refused, with the magistrate citing the seriousness of the charge and saying Mr Ul-Haque could try to leave the country.

Prosecutor Desmond Fagan SC said the case against Mr Ul-Haque was strong, given his admission during police interviews that he trained in the LET camp at Aqsa near the town of Muzaffarabad in January.

LET is involved in a violent struggle with Indian forces for the liberation of Kashmir. The Howard Government banned LET eight months after Mr Ul-Haque trained with them."




At this time all mail has been stopped from entering or leaving the High Risk Management Unit at Goulburn where Mr Ul-Haque and more than 70 other prisoners are being held.

Govt rejects Ul-Haque's family 'political scapegoat' claims

On Friday (the day Mr Ul-Haque was arrested) I was contacted by a prisoner at the HRMU who told me that he was just informed that all outgoing and incoming mail will be stopped under the heading *Now we have terrorists and that validates Cruel and Unusual Treatment or Punishment. *

If the idea that now we have alleged *terrorists* housed at the HRMU and now collectively all the prisoners housed there including the alleged terrorists will not receive or send mail at all then how do the prisoners including the alleged terrorists tell people who care what difficulties they are faced with?

Especially when the prisoners are self-harming and no one not even a Legal Aid Lawyer can get in to represent them. These prisoners are being denied their right to legal assistance; their right to give instructions, their right to waive their privacy in order to get and receive community support.

These are extremely urgent matters that involve fundamental human rights of communication, which we complain about for ourselves and for all those concerned. Prisoners at the HRMU are the most vulnerable in the State and need continuous access to assistance without any blockage or even perception of blockage.

High Risk Management causes mental illness and self-harm and you should be very alert and alarmed and if you see Alexander Downer approach him and tell him he is armed and very very dangerous. Sending people especially young people to the HRMU is very dangerous to their mental health screw the politics of fear.

Conditions in the HRMU

Justice Action is trying to obtain documents on behalf of prisoners held in the Goulburn High Risk Management Unit (HRMU) from the Federal Attorney General's Department, Corrective Services Minister's Conference regarding the process described below, in which the Standard Guidelines for Corrections in Australia were adopted. This documentation will help explain the justification for the conditions in the HRMU.

After receiving complaints from several prisoners regarding the air and light conditions inside the cells, we compiled some research into the Standard Guidelines for Corrections in Australia (SGCA). It is clear from our research that, in the adoption of the UN Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners (UN SMR's) to the Australian context, the "Rules" changed to "Guidelines" and the substance of the material changed significantly. These changes relate directly to the conditions in the HRMU which appear to breach the UN SMR's and partially the SGCA.

Now that medical ethics at the HARM-U have been grossly degraded by the HCCC and the NSW Ombudsman and communication ethics have been grossly degraded by the NSW Ombudsman and the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission these Prisoners are in real trouble and need your support. The above agencies have turned their back on human dignity in the face of all Australians who care about each other and the personal dignity that comes from being human. How ethical is it to deprive people of human standards. Why do we pay government agencies our taxes to turn their back on the truth and what they say they stand for?

You can help! Approach or write to the NSW Prisons Minister hastistergos and the federal attorney general phillip ruddock (all in lower case) because these people have breached ethical standards. When you do approach them or write to them please inform them that they are armed and dangerous and should be open, honest, transparent and accountable to the community if what they say they're doing is right.

What have they got to hide? Plenty!

" I am freezing and starving" " I am hot and starving" " I cannot breathe fresh air" " I cannot tell you how it is for me" "I feel claustrophobic" "I can see fresh air but I cannot touch it" "I have no constructive lifestyle" "it takes 6 months to see a doctor" "corrective services override my medical treatment" " my legal material is taken away" "I am banging my head on the wall" "I slammed my hand in the door" "I cannot communicate with you now".

These are all symptoms of people being forced to survive below the survival level. If there is no money for public hospitals then the prison is ten times worse. If the Federal government is sending people into these places they have a duty of care to deal with the overcrowding and put money in to restore human rights and dignity. If they are treating these people like this intentionally then they themselves should be put into Mr-Ul-Haque's cell and he released.

Those who the government has suspicion about and who have been sent to this place will be caused serious mental illness and are changing the culture for the rest of the NSW prisoners (lifers) who have to remain in the HRMU until they die regardless of howards politics of fear and the Federal Election.

HREOC should stop denying that Federal prisoner's don't exist in these places and do something constructive about it. Please write to them and tell them they are the most useless agency Australian people have to rely on for Human Rights because every time there is a breach of human rights they claim their Federal Act is only able to deal with Federal matters.

When in all accounts most people directly effected are held in State institutions and the fact that HREOC still don't help anyone in Federal jurisdictions nine times out of ten because they have a QC at the desk who tells you in so many ways why they cannot help you. HREOC is an illusion.

What State institution deals with STATE HUMAN RIGHTS? ZIP! Where do you live? Within a State or Territory! Not within a "Federal State or Territory".

The point I make is! Is this low life howard worth it? Write to this man or approach him and tell him he is armed and dangerous. We have no protection unless he is voted out by the margin of affected people in column "B". How much human suffering do we have to put up with until there is an overwhelming majority of imprisoned or mentally ill and sick people in this country to vote this loser out of the community in which he does not live?

State terror units caused the terror!
The level of suspicion and surveillance created by the [US false flag operation and call to arms] Bali bombings, created by [ the Coalition of the Killing and Australian's complicity to go to war on Iraq] means that all Australian's suffer the loss of their human rights, civil rights and their democratic rights, as well as those Australian's who lost their life in Bali.
