Only 2 weeks ago, these lawyers were working overtime, for almost 3 days, to assist the hundreds of demonstrators who were arrested during the HINDRAF rally on 25 November. (captured below)
Coincidentally (or maybe not?) Latheefa, Edmund, Eric, Sivarasa and Surendran are members of Suaram, with the former two sitting in the current Secretariat.
