1021: The police have told those arrested that they will have to wait longer to find out their fate.

“They told us that investigations have not yet been completed,” says blogger Zorro, one of those arrested who had gone to the police station in Ipoh. “Why didn’t they tell us that last night?”

1000: The 69 people arrested outside the Perak government complex on 7 May 2009 and later released on bail will know their fate today. They have turned up at the Ipoh central police station to find out their fate. Also present are Nizar and Kula.

People are charged for just gathering around a building, what other question is there to ask?

Our country is truly in a sorry state. I have totally lost faith in the government and do not wish to give the government any more chances .It used to be a very beautiful country until Mahathir took over . Why am I still living in this country? It must be because I still care and love this country.Sigh …. lets pray so that God will intervene and save this country.

Published on Thursday, June 4, 2009 by CommonDreams.org Echoes of Solidarity 20 Years after Tiananmen by Stephen Zunes Twenty years ago today, I was at Camp Thoreau in New York’s Catskill Mountains. Though I had already become a full-time academic, I was still involved in the topical folk music circles in which I had hung out for much of the previous decade and had come down from Ithaca to join this annual gathering of politically-conscious folk musicians for a weekend of workshops, jam sessions and performances. As we were clearing our dishes from dinner, I came upon the kitchen volunteers… Read more »

Almost a month later and yet investigations are not concluded yet ? Charge them for the offence that happened on that day or let them go.

If there are other charges that the police want to bring up, they will know where to find these folks. Its not like they didn’t show up in Ipoh !!!

This lack of respect for the People and their resources is simply not acceptable from any State police force. Suggest the sixty-nine members of the rakyat, who were not only undemocratically persecuted and arrested for no real good reason in the first place but who were also faffed about today, again for no good reason it seems other than the usual PRDM trademarked unprofessionalism, incompetence, inconsideration and high-handedness, send in their personal expense claims to the Ipoh police station (and copied to the IGP and the Home Minister) for reimbursement of their wasted resources (of time and money and energy… Read more »

Ok, so the boys in blue were none too efficient with their investigations. But at least the pics didn’t show any hero in blue using a loud hailer to shout at the lawyers and the 64 Pakatan supporters, hehehe!

They were arrested without a reason .
You cant book a person for wearing black colour shirts and when did the law says drinking coffee is an offence?
As most of those ‘arrested” was in a coffee shop and about to sip their cuppa.
The entire event was captured on cameras.

Wah..its easy to arrest CIVILIANS but on what charged? Cops waiting for orders & instruction from thier master?

The police have anticipated that those arrested will not pay the fines. Therefore, the police have told those arrested that they will have to wait a bit longer until there are vacancies in the lock-ups.

Ah, so efficient when they arrested the vigillers and lawyers, the Appeal court also very efficient when they overturn the High Court decision. But this one, investigation not completed??? Seriously, we need to retire a lot of police officers and judges. Time to advertise for new recruitment!

This is plain harassment by the police. They do this deliberately. It is an unspoken policy of the police. Just like their unspoken policy of deriving confessions from detainees instead of doing proper, systematic investigations….

DON’T SHAME YOUR ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS BY CARRYING OUT STUPID ORDERS FROM WICKED PEOPLE THAT WILL ONLY STAIN YOUR SOUL!
