Dear Dr Chee,

After reading the Straits Times report “Asef : Pulled funding nothing to do with Govt” of 18 June 2004, it became clear to me that in spite of its written denial, Asef had clearly aligned itself with the political leanings of its host country. Would its position be contrary to the wishes of the millions of taxpayers in Europe?

I would like to urge you to make a strong request to the Head of the
International Federation of Liberal Youth (IFLRY) to inform the governments, governmental agencies, human rights agencies of the European member states about what Asef had done. I am sure that the Europeans are more politically enlightened than the ones heading Asef.
