All 21 activists arrested for expressing solidarity to the Palestinian people released on police bail

All 21 persons, including three elected representatives and three Suaram coordinators, who were arrested by the Dang Wangi police for organizing and participating in a vigil held on 10 January 2009 at the Merdeka Square were released under police bail at midnight on the same day after police statements were taken from them.

The 21 persons are required to report back to the police on 12 February 2009 .

The vigil was organized to protest against the bombing of Gaza and express solidarity to the Palestinian civilians who have died and injured in the carnage in Gaza by the Israel military.
Suaram strongly condemns this arbitrary arrest, abuse of powers and the gross human rights violations.
The arrest exposes the hypocrisy of the Malaysian govenrment that projected themselves in the international community as the supporter and sympathizer of the Palestinian when in the realit they are suppressing its own citizens from expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Note: I am one of them...

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS MALAYSIA:
The Red Book - Police and Your Basic Rights

In 2006, The Malaysian Bar Council took the initiative to launch a publication titled “The Red Book - Police and Your Basic Rights”.

The Red Book contains a lot of information that you will find useful if you have to deal with the police (plain clothes or uniformed).

For example, the book contains information on your rights and what you can do and cannot do if/when you are stopped, arrested or questioned by the police.

Other useful information in the book include the colour schemes of police authority cards (blue is inspector or above, yellow below, white reserve and red suspended) and the phone numbers of Legal Aid Centres (LAC) that you can call if you need a lawyer.
