A Penang High Court judge this morning upheld the seven-day remand order on 30 PSM activists.
The remand order had been granted by a senior Sessions Court judge presiding at the Butterworth Magistrate’s Court last Sunday. Lawyers then applied to the High Court on Tuesday for a revision of the remand order.
The remand expires on Saturday, 2 July, but the authorities may go back to court to apply for a further seven days of remand.
Yesterday, activists were harassed by a group of men while outside the police headquarters along Penang Road, where they were holding a press conference after submitting a memo addressed to the CPO calling for the detainees’ release. Take a look at the video.
