PKR had planned to hand over a memorandum to the High Commission, to express solidarity with 21 Malaysians hauled up in Singapore for taking part in a small impromptu gathering following the recent controversial general election in Malaysia.
The memo by Nurul, Sim Tze Tzin, Idris Jauzi and Chua Jui Meng concluded:
Singapore should have nothing to fear from a handful of Malaysians who seek free and fair elections in their own nation. Any country with a robust and fair democracy should in fact welcome any such peaceful calls for the same in their own.
We, the members of Malaysian Parliament from the People’s Justice Party would like to extend our solidarity with Malaysians working in Singapore for pursuing democracy, free and fair elections in Malaysia. We view highly the courage shown by Malaysians for making a stand to seek justice and democracy. They should be commended for their courageous act.
We believe both Malaysia and Singapore value highly our friendship and cooperation between the two, therefore we would like to call upon Singaporean authority to exercise restraints and give those arrested Malaysians a second chance.
