Jerit cyclist freed on police bail


Jerit campaign cyclist Ruben s/o Loganathan was freed on police bail at 7.50pm yesterday.

The Jerit cycling team from the north are now on the way to Penang. Tomorrow, they are due to hand over a memorandum to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at 12.30pm in the Komtar foyer in front of Maybank.

The team’s campaign had earlier received the backing of the Kedah state government. Kedah state exco member Ismail Salleh had flagged off the cyclists from Alor Star.

If the Jerit cyclist wear abolish OPPOSITION then for sure they won’t be arrested.


Glad to hear Ruben was released after several hours. Police should NOT have harssed him in the first place, but in mitigation, I believe there are still enough decent CPOs in the force who do make an effort to be reasonable when ordered to take action by their commanding officers. I was told yesterday that Selangor CPO Khalid Yusof had no intention of forcefully breaking up the Candlelight Vigil on 9 Nov… but an order came directly from the IGP (bypassing the CPO) to arrest a whole truckload just to scare organisers & participants?
