Thus far, Gobalakrishnan, Member of KeADILan Supreme Council, is the first to be remanded for 3 days. This was done at Ibu Pejabat Kontingen (IPK), Kuala Lumpur this evening around six pm. More to be remanded.

There were close to a hundred detained at IPK earlier, but the bulk of the protestors, numbering some 400, was held at PULAPOL (Pusat Latihan Polis) Jalan Semarak.

More later. Internet cafe not reading my thumbdrive 😦
