The three have been released after Magistrate Norashikin Sahat rejected a police application to remand them. It is now time for Najib to fulfil his pledge to repeal the archaic Sedition Act.

Well done to the magistrate and to all those who expressed solidarity with the detainees despite 18 arrests two nights ago. “No individual will ever be detained simply due to political ideology,” Najib had pledged two years ago. Time to fulfil your promise. Janji ditepati, remember?
