Latest: Chin Huat’s stay in the lock up has been extended to Friday after the police, who failed in the first attempt, returned to the Magistrate court to apply of the extension, which was then granted. Originally they wanted to keep Chin Huat for 4 extra days, from the day he was caught.
Yet: the police has not found time to record any statement from Chin Huat yet-so typical of the police who appear to need more time for `investigation’. the unspoken message is: we want you in-no matter what it takes! This is a common experience for those who had been `inside’ before. The police are using the detention as the beginning of a punishment-even before any court has found you guilty of anything! Often the police need the time to work out what to charge you…
Latest: Since Chin Huat will be inside till Friday-the candle lights vigil outside the police lock-up will extend to Friday/thursday evening. Make this part of your `democracy tour’ destination to find out the more caring and passionate side of KLites!
Latest: If you like to keep quiet-and can stand keep quiet in face of great provocation, go to sit in front of Perak State Assembly. Your silence will speak so loud that the power that pretend to be will want to get you out of your cosy seat! But will you be arrested? The State Assembly is located within a government administration block-so unless they close every department down you can always find an excuse to venture into the public places!
More will come. Watch out here.
