16 Burmese held at Pakatan b’day bash for Suu Kyi


2345: 14 of them have been brought to the Kelana Jaya lock-up.

2334: Blog reader anony-mouse reports:

I had great piece of cake…! Tian was at the police station too. Irene Fernandez was in a car that came by the station twice, but did not alight.

2228: Of the 16, three have been freed because they have documents. Five are undocumented; so if they don’t get UNHCR registration pronto, they could be deported. The remaining are all registered with the UNHCR as refugees; so they should be all right.

2215: About 25 people are now gathered outside the police station. They are cutting a birthday cake for Aung San Suu Kyi.

2057: All the Burmese – 16 of them – are arrested and taken to the PJ police station.

2039: About 30 to 40 cops at the venue are asking to see the ICs of those gathering there. Ronnie Liu is trying to negotiate. The police want them to use a hall for the event instead of gathering at a public space.

2029: Roads leading to Taman Jaya and Amcorp Mall blocked by cops. Selangor Pakatan Rakyat is gathering to celebrate Aung San Suu Kyi’s 64th birthday.

Anil, can we have some discussion on improving the way of life in Penang.

Water is controlled by PBA or Penang government, so why dont the government implement a policy to highrise residents to pay maintenance fee monthly without failure (say not more than 2 months) or their their water will be turn off.
