Dear Sir,

I am writing to you to express my strongest condemnation and protest against the arrests of two individuals outside Istana Negara today (15 February 2008) after the submission of a memorandum by BERSIH in relation to free and fair elections. The police stopped the delegation to hold a press conference, and in the process arrested People’s Justice Party (PKR) Information Chief Tian Chua and BERSIH supporter Jamaluddin Manaf.

This latest round of arrests comes barely a week before the 12th General Elections, casting a huge doubt over the ability of the police to act impartially in ensuring safety and order during the upcoming polls.

I strongly condemn the police’s actions to stop the BERSIH delegation to hold a press conference and the arbitrary arrests of the two by the police. To stop them from holding a press conference after they had submitted a memorandum to the King, and furthermore make arrests, clearly violates every citizen’s rights to freedom of speech and expression and access to information.

I demand that the two be released immediately and unconditionally. I further demand that the government respect Malaysian citizens’ fundamental rights, especially in view of the upcoming general elections.

Sincerely yours,

Arif Abdullah

  1. Its a shameful act by the Malaysian police to arrest the two individual.There are total lack of freedom speech for the Malaysian citizen and the people of Malaysia should rise to condemn this act and attitude of the Pak Lah goverment.We need to teach this regime and the only way is to vote the opposition in. Meanwhile ,the 2 individual should be release immediately without any condition.This is simply unacceptable and only goes to show the arrogrance of the goverment.
