 Kakak Siti Aishah tiba di London, atur pertemuan...

Kakak Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab, wanita Malaysia yang dilaporkan melarikan diri selepas 30 tahun menjadi hamba, telah tiba di London dan sedang mengatur untuk menemui Siti Aishah.

"Kami masih tidak tahu sama ada Aishah mahu bertemu dengan kami," kata aktivis Hishamuddin Rais dalam blognya yang dimuat naik pada jam 4.19 petang waktu Malaysia.

NONEHishamuddin (kanan) mengiringi kakak Aishah - Kamar Mautum Abdul Wahab - berkata maklumat lanjut akan disediakan kepada media.

Bagaimanapun, beliau merayu supaya media tidak "tidak terlalu sibuk sangat", kerana ini boleh mengganggu rancangan Kamar Mautum untuk bertemu dengan adiknya itu.

Hishammuddin adalah seorang aktivis pelajar yang tinggal dalam buangan di London pada tahun 1970-an, dan mengenali Siti Aishah.

Kedua-dua berasal dari Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan, manakala Siti Aishah yang menerima biasiswa untuk belajar di London, juga aktif dalam pergerakan pelajar.

Hishammuddin dan Kamar Mautum bertolak ke London malam tadi dan tiba kira-kira jam 1.30 petang waktu Malaysia (5.30 pagi waktu London).

Sementara itu, BBC melaporkan bahawa seorang jiran, Charlotte Watts, berkata seorang daripada tiga wanita ditahan di rumah Brixton, berdiri di hadapan tingkap selama "berjam-jam", sambil memegang nota, tetapi tidak dapat difahami.

Beliau juga dipetik sebagai berkata bahawa wanita itu pernah dilihat di luar rumah tetapi hanya berdiam diri.

Media British melaporkan bahawa tiga wanita - Siti Aishah, 69, rakyat Ireland Josephone Herivela, 57, dan Rosie Davis, 30 - didakwa diperhambakan oleh rakyat India Aravinda Balakrishnan dan isterinya Chandra.

 'Enslaved' woman's sister in London, arranging meet...

The sister of Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab, the Malaysian woman who reportedly escaped after 30 years of domestic enslavement, has arrived in London and is arranging to meet Siti Aishah.

"We still don't know if Aishah wants to meet with us," activist Hishamuddin Rais said in a blog post uploaded at 4.19pm Malaysian time.


 Hishamuddin, (right) who is accompanying Aishah's elder sister Kamar Mautum Abdul Wahab, added that more information will be provided to the media.

However, he appealed for the media to "not be too nosy" at this juncture, as this could disrupt Kamar Mautum's plans to finally reunite with her sister, who allegedly cut ties with the family after joining a Maoist sect.

Hishammuddin was a student activist who went into self-imposed exile to London in the 1970s, and had known Siti Aishah.

Both hail from Jelebu, Negri Sembilan, while Siti Aishah, who received a scholarship to study in London, was also active in the student movement.

Hishammuddin and Kamar Mautum departed to London last night and arrived about 1.30pm Malaysian time (5.30am London time).

'Notes not decipherable'


Meanwhile, the BBC reported that a neighbor, Charlotte Watts, said one of three women held captive at the Brixton home stood at the window "for hours" and held up notes, but they were not decipherable.

She was also quoted as saying that the women were seen running errands in the neighbourhood but appeared to lack social skills.

Neighbours had assumed the house was a halfway home for abused women.



British media reported that the three women - Siti Aishah, 69, Irish national Josephone Herivela, 57, and Rosie Davis, 30 - were held allegedly captive by Indian national Aravinda Balakrishnan and his wife Chandra.

A 1997 video from a documentary on the inquest into the death of Sian Davies showed the women walking behind Balakrishnan and Siti Aishah pushing Chandra who was in a wheelchair.

Sian died after a fall from the Brixton home's second floor. The police are reportedly relooking the case.

The Mirror reported that Siti Aishah testified at the inquest as well as in 1978, when members of the reported Maoist collective were nabbed in a drug raid. They were eventually charged for obstructing the police.

Kamar Mautum and Hishammuddin earlier told media that Siti Aishah was active in the leftist movement.-malaysiakini

Polis sahkan itu adalah Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab...

Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar mengesahkan seorang daripada tiga wanita yang diselamatkan selepas 30 tahun menjadi hamba di London adalah Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab.

Bagaimanapun, beliau tidak dapat sahkan sama ada masih lagi berstatus warganegara Malaysia atau tidak selepas tidak pulang ke negara ini sejak lebih 30 tahun.

"Sekitar tahun 1970an, dia dikehendaki polis Malaysia kerana terlibat dalam kegiatan komunis. Dia dikesan bergerak di kalangan aktivis pelajar yang ada tendesi gerakan kiri," katanya.

"Bagaimanapun, Siti Aishah lari ke London di mana kita terus mengawasi pergerakan beliau. Oleh kerana United Kingdom mengamalkan kebebasan bersuara, Siti Aishah bergerak di kalangan aktivis pelajar di sana," kata Khalid.

Khalid menjelaskan, "Siti Aishah bukan lagi menjadi buruan polis kerana apa yang dilakukan sudah 30 tahun berlalu, jadi tidak perlulah kita jadikan ia isu lagi sekarang."

 Oleh itu katanya, jika Siti Aishah mahu pulang ke Malaysia, dia bebas berbuat demikian kerana polis tidak lagi akan menangkap dia.

Siti Aishah adalah salah seorang daripada tiga wanita yang dibebaskan bersama dua lagi wanita di daerah Lambeth selepas didakwa menjadi 'hamba' kepada kumpulan Komunis Mao Tse Tung.

Ia menjadi sorotan besar-besaran media British atas dakwaan menjadi hamba kumpulan Maoist.

Semalam, aktivis Hishamuddin Rais mendedahkan kepada The Malaysian Insider wanita Malaysia menjadi "hamba psikologi" selama 30 tahun di London adalah Siti Aishah.

Katanya, Siti Aishah aktif dengan pertubuhan mahasiswa kiri yang menggelarkan diri mereka "New Malayan Youth".-TMI

Slavery suspects and 'victims' in 1997 documentary...

TV News has uncovered documentary footage of members of the alleged 'slavery' commune in south London.

These pictures from 1997 show members of the group responding to questions about the death of group member Sian Davies, who died following a fall from a window of a house used by the group.

Members are also seen attending an inquest into the death of Sian Davies, who was paralysed following the fall.

Miss Davies' family criticised the group at the inquest and in an interview today for not telling them for several months that she was paralysed in hospital.

The family only learned of the fall when Miss Davies died in hospital.

Documentary footage obtained by ITV News also shows Comrade Chanda, the wife of Aravindan Balakrishnan, outside a 1997 inquest into the death of commune member Sian Davies.

Chanda, pictured in a wheelchair and to the left of the man known as Comrade Bala, was arrested with her husband last week as part of an investigation into slavery and domestic servitude.

ITV News believes this woman to be Aishah, the 69-year-old Malaysian woman rescued from the alleged 'slavery' house in south London.

She is pictured in a 1997 documentary about the death of Sian Davies, who died following a fall from a window of a house used by the group.

According the press reports from 1978, a 34-year-old woman called Aishe Waham was arrested following a police raid on the group's headquarters.

Press reports from 1997 quote an Aisha Wahab giving evidence at a coroners' inquest into Sian Davies' death.

A Telegraph report today says the woman was originally known as Aishah Mautum, who moved to Britain in 1968 from Malaysia before becoming involved with the Maoist group.- itv.com
