A protest against recent custodial deaths was held outside the central police lock-up in Bayan Baru on Mothers’ Day, Sunday, 11 May.
Among those attending the protest were representatives of Suaram, Aliran, Bersih and relatives of victims of custodial deaths.
Suaram released a memorandum after the protest. The memo contains the names of nine recent victims of custodial deaths – six of them died in police lock-ups and three in prisons.
We continue to call for the Independent Police Misconduct and Complaints Commission (IPCMC), a key recommendation of a royal commission of inquiry.
