Police in northern Seberang Perai have detained a bus-load of PSM activists including Sungai Siput MP Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj.
“All of us have been detained,” said Jeyakumar, when contacted at 6.05pm. “Over 30 of us.”
He was in the middle of giving a statement.
The activists are being held at the Kepala Batas Police Station on mainland Penang.
The activists were taking part in a whistle-stop leafleting campaign “Udalah itu, bersaralah BN” in the north of the peninsula, and they had been trailed by police for much of the day.
