To His Royal Highness the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich

Chancellor of the University of Cambridge,

University Offices, 
The Old Schools, 
Trinity Lane, 
Cambridge CB 2 1TN,
United Kingdom.

Your Royal Highness,

On the 7th of October 2000, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the Prime Minister of Malaysia is due to give a speech at a conference organised by the Cambridge University Malaysia Society (CUMAS).

Dr Mahathir is a leader who continues to oppress his people by denying them the fundamental and basic rights of free elections, freedom of speech and the right to assemble.  He has stifled opposition to his regime by unfair and cruel means including physical violence by members of the police and detention without trial.

The most prominent opponent to Dr. Mahathir's rule is Anwar Ibrahim, who is currently undergoing a fifteen year jail sentence given by a show trial of unusual and blatant unfairness.  Prior to that, Anwar was subjected to severe beatings by members of the Malaysian police.

We believe it is wrong for the University of Cambridge or any of its component members to allow Dr Mahathir a platform to continue defaming his opponents when they are denied freedom of speech and movement.

While Dr. Mahathir is allowed a platform here at the University, his opponents languish in misery in Malaysian jails as prisoners of conscience.

We urge you to use your influence as Chancellor of the University of Cambridge to stop Dr. Mahathir from continuing his unfair political agenda at this august institution.

We urge you to protect Malaysian students at the University of Cambridge from further intimidation and threats  by Dr. Mahathir and his government

We urge you to support our call for a free and democratic Malaysia

The University of Cambridge cannot afford to besmirch its reputation by allowing a cruel and vindictive dictator a free rein in its midst.

Please do not allow the University of Cambridge to be a platform for dictators!

Kepada Yang Teramat Mulia Putera Philip, Duke of  Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth dan Baron Greenwich,

Canselor Universiti Cambridge,

Pejabat Universiti, 
The Old Schools, 
Trinity Lane, 
Cambridge CB2 1TN, 
United Kingdom

Yang Teramat Mulia,

Pada 7 Oktober 2000, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Perdana Menteri Malaysia, akan memberi ucaptama dalam satu persidangan anjuran Persatuan Pelajar Malaysia Universiti Cambridge (CUMAS).

Dr. Mahathir merupakan seorang pemimpin yang terus menekan rakyatnya dengan menafikan mereka hak-hak asasi untuk mengundi dengan bebas, kebebasan bersuara dan kebebasan berkumpul.  Beliau menghalang sebarang bangkangan kepada rejimnya dengan cara-cara yang tidak adil dan kejam termasuk keganasan fizikal oleh anggota-anggota polis serta penahanan tanpa perbicaraan.

Orang yang paling penting dalam pergerakan menentang kezaliman Dr. Mahathir ialah Anwar Ibrahim, yang kini menjalani hukuman penjara lima belas tahun setelah dihukum dalam satu perbicaraan olok-olok yang benar-benar melampaui batas.  Sebelum itu, Anwar dipukul dengan teruk oleh anggota-anggota polis Malaysia.

Kami percaya bahawa adalah salah jika Universiti Cambridge atau mana-mana badan sekutunya memberi peluang kepada Dr. Mahathir untuk terus memfitnah para penentangnya sedangkan mereka pula dinafikan kebebasan bersuara dan bergerak.

Sedang Dr. Mahathir diberi peluang bercakap di universiti ini, para penentang rejimnya merengkok dalam penjara di Malaysia sebagai tahanan politik.

Kami mendesak Yang Teramat Mulia untuk menggunakan pengaruh sebagai Canselor Universiti Cambridge untuk menghalang Dr. Mahathir daripada meneruskan agenda politik songsangnya di universiti ini.

Kami mendesak Yang Teramat Mulia untuk mempertahankan hak-hak para pelajar Malaysia di universiti ini daripada ancaman dan ugutan Dr. Mahathir dan kerajaannya.

Kami mendesak Yang Teramat Mulia untuk menyahut seruan rakyat Malaysia yang mahu lebih bebas dan demokratik.

Universiti Cambridge tidak sepatutnya merosakkan reputasinya dengan memberi luang kepada seorang diktator yang zalim dan pendendam berleluasa di universiti ini.

Janganlah jadikan Universiti Cambridge pentas para diktator!
