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?
The arrests come ahead of a planned protest rally outside Sogo at 4.00pm today, which also happens to be the day of the Big Wedding.

He was taken to the Jinjang Police Station.
From Jinjang, Tian Chua was put on a police vehicle along with Rafizi and Hisham, and they were then taken to Dang Wangi.
Rafizi and Hisham had been remanded for three days. This is a photo of them in handcuffs earlier:

Sabu is expected to be released this evening.
