Alert: Pota bills up for reading in Parliament on Monday

Preventive detention could very well be making a return soon with the tabling of the Prevention of Terrorism Act bill and five other related bills in Parliament tomorrow. We got rid of the ISA, which allowed detention without trial, not too long ago. Now this…



Live – Rally at Sogo

Update: After the rally, PKR organising secretary Faris Musa was arrested for sedition and taken to Dang Wangi. Bersih tweeted that two others were also arrested, but I’m unable to verify this at this stage.

Tian Chua detained by 20 cops; Rafizi, Hisham remanded for three days

Why 20 cops to detain Tian Chua (according to his tweet)? Why was Mat Sabu detained by armed men in ski masks? Why was Hisham Rais bundled away by unidentified men? What message is being conveyed here? That these activists and opposition politicians are dangerous?

Hisham Rais picked up by unknown men and taken to Dang Wangi

Activist Hisham Rais was bundled into a silver Honda by unknown men at Dataran Merdeka and taken away on the eve of a mass protest rally which also happens to be the day of the Big Wedding. He is now at the Dang Wangi Police Station.

According to Fahmi Fadzil, Hisham said he was in a taxi, which was being trailed by a car and some motorbikes. When he got off the taxi, six men grabbed him. “One of them dragged him by his chest, covered Hisham’s mouth to stop him from shouting. They threw Hisham into another car and took him to Dang Wangi.”

This was the scene when he was taken away:
