Detainees still no legal access ! Call 03-2274 2222 to demand for their release!
[Video sent to me by Ong Boon Keong].
Activist Ng Eng Kiat was arrested by police in Penang tonight, for illegal assembly, at a SUARAM organised vigil in Penang. I can hear Penang coordinator Lau Su Shi’s voice asking why is he arrested. Brave Su Shi.
Meanwhile in KL, 14 people have been arrested in another round of police madness at the Brickfields police station.
The14 are vigilers who are holding a candle light vigil for detained social activist Wong Chin Huat, held for Sedition.
When inside, the group started singing ‘kami mahu loyar”. We want lawyers. Police as usual want the crowd to disperse and are threatening another round of arrest.
My friend Chuah Siew Eng called the station, someone there assured her that if they wanted lawyers they will have access.
It’s a lie!
“What actually happens is they’ll ask the detained who their lawyers are and even after those detained name their lawyers, the police will make it idifficult for the lawyers to come in,” she told me over gmail chat.
“Lawyers are getting arrested too!”
