Student activist Adam Adli and PKR supreme council member Fariz Musa were arrested when police moved in on a solidarity protest at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman for the imprisoned Anwar Ibrahim.
PKR Youth leader Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad had a close shave with plainclothes police and managed to slip away after being pulled away by supporters.
Adam and Fariz are now having their statements recorded at the Jinjang Police Station. Lawyers have been informed that they are expected to be released in the coming hours without any remand extension. Supporters have vowed to wait for them outside the police station until the pair emerge.
This is the scene at Sungai Buloh tonight.
Meamwhile, I am checking out a PKR ceramah in Pasir Gudang tonight.
Now Pasir Gudang used to be an Umno stronghold. But at GE13, Umno’s majority was whittled down to 935 votes. What will happen at GE14?
Even as 1MDB struggles to repay its debts, a vigil is taking place at Sungai Buloh Prison to express solidarity with Anwar Ibrahim. At this rate, he could turn into a Mandela-like figure in no time. He has already been in jail/detention for eight years: two years in the 1970s and six years since 1998. Now, another five years.

Pray for our friend Zunar, who is being locked up under a sedition probe over tweets he made during the Anwar trial.
Zunar is being remanded for four days until Saturday noon. Why four days to investigate tweets?

Speaking ahead of the Federal Court verdict, Anwar Ibrahim tells the BBC he is convinced the struggle for reforms will go on even if he is sent back to jail.
Anwar Ibrahim recounts his political struggle and talks about the reform movement and how far it has come with one eye on the outcome of the Sodomy II trial.
