Long day. Exhausted. So, short story.
Brickfields police finished taking their statements but wanted to remand them further. Tian asked to speak to the office in charge. The police brought in 7 uniformed men and 8 non-uniformed men. They grabbed and pushed Executive Director of human rigyhts group Suaram, Yap Swee Seng and KeADILan media officer, Ginie Lim out of the room. Then ten of them dragged Tian to a police car.
Lim took photos of the fracas. And because of that, she was arrested.
For “obstructing” the police.
All three are in the lockup tonight. Remand hearings on Saturday. Tian Chua may still be remanded come Nomination Day on 24th Feb (the fiends!).
Please read the SUARAM Urgent Appeal here, and respond immediately.
Police have started their ‘snuff’ campaign known as “Ops Padam” to stop the Rose-for-PM-Free-Hindraf-Five gathering tomorrow. (IMHO, that Pembohong doesn’t deserve any flowers)
Kuala Lumpur Police Chief Datuk Muhammad Sabtu Osman has even threatened to take away any children there and put them under the care of Welfare Department??!!!???
What about Sharlinie? Have you forgotten her, Musa Hassan?
How about rallying those thousands of police officers to look for her?
Or is serving the BN caretaker government during elections more important?
STOP ABUSE OF POWER!
VOTE FOR CHANGE!
