Judge upholds 7-day remand order on PSM detainees

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.

Instead of seating in the opposition bench, 1-kotor umno should be banned when we throw them out (at the next GE).

BN has chosen to exit in utter disgrace instead of gracefully. As the dinosaur dies it will thrash its tail about violently – just stay out of the way if you can. These hapless PSM volunteers got whacked by BN’s crappy law enforcement … – but it’s a small price to pay for the future of Malaysia.

Umno Swordzenegger in his paranoid personality disorder declared that yellow T-shirt is illegal! Who give this mad guy the power to make declaration? Guess will anyone obey his declaration? Only the police and Umnoputra losing their mind believed that yellow T-shirt is illegal.

B’cos Yellow T-Shirts are a conscience-curse to ‘Kotor’.
BTW, who with righteousness would want to be ‘Kotor’?

Anil, any specific reasons given by the judge ???

By the way, I’m very happy about that decision. So, jangan main-main dengan undang-undang. Sesal dahulu berpendapatan, Sesal Kemudian Tak Berguna
