Vigil outside Rawang police station as cyclists held


2050: Police are now recording the details of 45 Jerit northern team cyclists in the Rawang police station (phone 03-6091 6222). Outside the station, a candlelight vigil is now being held

At first, the police tried to use Section 32 of the Child Act; they wanted to hold the cyclists until their parents came. Then they tried the usual s112 of the CPC. Now, they are just documenting the particulars of the cyclists – name, IC number, address.

“They seem disappointed that all the cyclists below 18 have consent letters from their parents,” says one of the Jerit coordinators inside the station.

Meanwhile, the Jerit southern region cycling team have been freed and they are now in Kajang.

Good to know that the bn gov. and polis successfully made all our teenage JERIT cyclist to really hate them.
After JERIT completed their mission, i am sure they will go home and tells all to their parent,friends and some will blogs the incident …. Maybe they will writes a book!

There are positive and negative outcome from them.
Hope all the participants will not faces trauma .
Be strong and be calm. JERIT , we Malaysian are proud of you all.

I’m speechless… can’t even JERIT! I can only bid Musa Hassan an ignominious & speedy exit for bringing the PDRM to the nadir of its professionalism & credibility. I profoundly RESENT paying the police their salaries to harass & intimidate harmless cyclists.
