MP, SA and DAP Members Arrested While Candlelight Vigil

MP, SA and DAP Members Arrested While Candlelight Vigil

Black is getting black, and dark is getting darkness.

DAPSY Seputeh was organised a Candlelight Vigil for Perak Politic Crisis on 19 May, 8pm, downstair of DAP Seputeh office.
The event was plan by me and Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching were attend the function as well.

Police warned me not to on the function at 7pm. I confirmed the function is peaceful and only candlelight vigil at open space downstair of office. However police do not tolerate our request.

Our function still on at 8pm, and we were surrounded by police. It was surprise the attendance of police force is more then attendance of candlelight vigil.

While Teresa spoke to police, our candlelight vigil starts. OCBD requested us to leave within 10 second however we don't see any wrong with candlelight vigil. Police starts to take action after 10 sec and I was bring to police car as well.

When I brought to police car, the policeman who catch me gone and I was alone. The other policeman stand front of lockup lorry asked me who catch me and I was quiet. He ask the policemen around who catch me however no one answer. The policeman push me away from police lockup lorry and say: "You jangan jadi hero".

I was "escaped" and I follow the crowd to Police Station Brickfield. Lim Kit Siang, Tan Seng Giaw, Tan Kok Wai, Fong Gui Lun, Teresa Kok, Lim Lip Eng, Tony Pua, Lau Weng San, Charles Santiago and Antony Loke came and show support as well.

The police in Police Station Brickfield was try to use FRU against supporters who gather at Brickfield Station.

11 people were arrested, 4 female detainees were sent to Police Station Jln Traveles and 7 guy detainess were sent to Police Station Pantai.

All of the detainees were released before 4am.


Malaysiakini (English):
(Teresa) Kok pointed out that the protest was taking place on private property and therefore the police had no jurisdiction over the gathering.
The officer refused to budge and once again ordered the crowd to disperse.
At this juncture, (Jenice) Lee told the protesters to sit on the ground. The police officer then proceeded to count from one to 10, and when the crowd remained unmoved, they were arrested.
Teo (Nie Ching) had however tried to grab onto a pillar resulting in her being forcefully dragged away by a policewoman.

But what happened was ridiculous.

More info and photos will be updated later.

More to posting up....
