Another day, another arrest: Nik Nazmi this time

PKR Youth leader Nik Nazmi was arrested at 10.00pm and was released after having his statement recorded at the Jinjang Police Station.

Half a dozen plainclothers police personnel arrived in four unmarked cars at Nik Nazmi’s home in Denai Alam and took him away for investigations under section 143 of the Penal Code.

Section 143 reads: “Whoever is a member of an unlawful assembly, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to six months or with fine or with both.”

Where is all this leading to? Don’t the authorities know that this ongoing crackdown is further tarnishing Malaysia’s image in the eyes of the international community?
