Blow to democracy: Police enter the Perak State Assembly this afternoon
I ran into Sivakumar a couple of hours after he was literally dragged out from the Speaker’s chair in the Perak State Assembly by police and other officers. He looked relaxed after what must have been the most difficult day of his life.
“The Dewan was full of police,” said Siva. “I was taken to a room that looked like a changing room in the Dewan.”
Another Adun, Yee Seu Kai (Pokok Assam) told me there were close to a hundred police and other officers, mostly in plain clothes, in the Dewan this afternoon.
