FIVE years ago, after he was charged with sedition, former student activist Adam Adli Abd Halim was told he has been suspended from his studies.
Today, just before buka puasa, Adam Adli received a letter from Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) informing him that the suspension has been lifted.
According to the June 1 letter sighted by The Malaysian Insight, Adam Adli was suspended beginning the first semester of the 2013/2014 term after he was convicted of sedition.
The suspension, in accordance with the Universities and University Colleges Act, was in effect throughout the duration of his case.

UPSI in Perak then received a letter from the Attorney-General’s Chambers on May 4, informing the institution that the Court of Appeals had acquitted Adam Adli on February 22, leading to the suspension being lifted.

Appeals court frees activist Adam Adli of sedition charge

THE Court of Appeal has overturned the sedition conviction of activist Adam Adli Abd Halim, citing a “misdirection of law” under the Sedition Act 1948.

In a unanimous decision, Justice Mohd Zawawi Salleh, leading a three-judge bench comprising of Kamardin Hashim and Abdul Rahman Sebli, ruled that Adam Adli should be set free on technical grounds.

“In our view, there is a misdirection of the law… when he was charged and the judge found that the defendant was guilty under Section 3(1)(a) of the Sedition Act, Section 3(1)(c) and Section 3(1)(d) but he didn’t touch on Section 3(1)(b), for which he was found guilty,” said Zawawi.

“And in our opinion… the sections have no connection with the speech given by the defendant. Those sections pertain to (seditious comments made against) the judiciary, the rulers.

“The misdirection of law renders the decision of the sessions and high court untenable,” Zawawi said.

Adam Adli, 29, was to be fined RM5,000 for making seditious remarks calling for the toppling of the government a week after the 2013 general election.

He was found guilty by the sessions court on September 19, 2014 and was sentenced to 12 months’ jail.

The high court which upheld the conviction on February 18, 2016, however substituted the jail term with a fine of RM5,000.

The government had cross-appealed to enhance the sentence from the fine of RM,5000 or three years’ jail or both, the maximum limits for a first offender. – February 22, 2018.

Adam charged with sedition, out on bail


K Pragalath | May 23, 2013


His lawyers are planning to file an application at the High Court to declare the case against him is frivolous.

KUALA LUMPUR: Student activist Adam Adli was this morning charged under the Sedition Act at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court for allegedly making a seditious statement. He claimed trial.

Sessions Court judge Norsharidah Awang fixed the bail at RM5,000 with one bailor, and fixed July 2 for mentioning.

Adam, 24, was arrested in Kuala Lumpur on May 18 for remarks he allegedly made during a post-GE13 forum on May 13. He was held in remand for five days.

This morning, deputy public prosecutor, Mohd Abazafri Mohd Abbas, sought to set bail at RM5,000 “to ensure his (Adam’s) attendance in court”. Abazafri was assisted by deputy public prosecutors Azrina Ali and Nadia Tahyuddin.

Adam was represented by lawyers N Surendran, S Ambiga, Afiq M Noor and Michelle Yesudass.

Both Surendran and Ambiga argued that the bail amount was high, and said the case was frivolous without prima facie.

“The Sedition Act is also going to be repealed. We will file an application to strike out the case at the High Court as soon as possible,” said Surendran.

Please share this event to your friends. We need to create more awareness to pressure the police to release Adam Immediately. Adam is currently remanded 5 days by the police without any charges. If the numbers are not huge enough, the police could further remand Adam at the end of 5 days.






“If no parents are willing to start it, let our family be the first. We have never stopped him. We have encouraged him,” he said.

However, Abdul Halim said that Adam was not trying to threaten national security with his comments.

“We are only seeking our freedom to speech, we are demanding our rights as rakyat,” he said, before brooding that democracy is “dead” in the country.

“Democracy goes beyond what we say and what is being written,” he added.

No pillow or blanket for Adam to sleep, says lawyer

Adam Adli Abdul Halim has been subjected to interrogation for two days in a row and was not even given a pillow or a blanket to sleep, said lawyer Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, who visited student activist today.

Fadiah who met Adam Adli with his father, Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid, at the Jinjang police detention centre at 1.30pm today, had to wait a long time before they could see him.

NONE“After waiting for some time, his father and I were allowed to meet Adam. Bersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan, who was also present, was not allowed to see him.

“Halim and I were then led into a room where we met Adam Adli, who was behind a glass panel. We had difficulty communicating with him and for me, being his lawyer, it was difficult to ask for instructions,” Fadiah said.

The lawyer said Adam told her that he was subject to continuous interrogation from 10am to 6pm on Sunday and Monday, with the police asking him the same questions over and over again.

In between the interrogations, Adam said, there were short breaks.

However, Fadiah said Adam chose to remain quiet, stopped answering the repetitive questions and told the interrogating officer to watch the video recording of his speech.

No hint whether remand will end tomorrow

The 24-year-old student, who has been suspended by Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, had been remanded since Saturday under Section 4 of the Sedition Act for his speech at a post election forum organised by Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) on May 13.

NONEFadiah (right) said the meeting lasted less than 30 minutes and that she does not know whether the police will apply to extend Adam Adli’s five-day remand order, which expires tomorrow.

“However, we are glad to see that he is quite well,” the lawyer added.

Thugs in Penang disrupt vigil for Adam Adli
A candlelight vigil by some 30 people in front of Universiti Sains Malaysia showing solidarity with detained student Adam Adli Abdul Hamid was disrupted by a rowdy group last night.The thugs, numbering about 10, shoved a student and Suaram coordinator Sean Ho and hit two journalists on their arms during the vigil.NONEPolice Special Branch officers and Universiti Sains Malaysia security men were present, but they did not take any action against the thugs.The vigil began about 8.20pm with the singing of the Negara-ku, followed by several brief talks given by participants.The protesters were shouted at by the rowdy gang that turned up soon after the vigil began, but they stopped shouting when Penang Deputy Chief MInister I Rashid Hasnon delivered his speech.

One of more vociferous men in the rowdy gang, who wore a helmet and an orange shirt with the 1Malaysia logo, shouted at the people in support of Adam to go home, since Pakatan Rakyat had already won Penang.

“Do not disturb our peaceful life here,” he shouted.

Ho talked to the man and tried to calm him down, but he shouted, “I am a local person, don’t try to chase me away”.

He calmed down when Rashid begin to address the crowd.

Another member of the thuggish gang then used a loud hailer and condemned the protesters for “violating the law and disturbing other people’s lives”.

He described the university students involved in the vigil as “trouble makers” who do not appreciate the education opportunities provided by the BN government.

Former Penang Umno Youth chief Norman Dahlan was among those spotted asking the protesters to leave.

Choo tried to talk to the group, asking them to respect the people’s right to assemble, but they turned aggressive and started shooing and pushing away those holding the vigil.

NONETwo male journalists, one from Malaysiakini and the other from Nanyang Siang Pau, were hit on their arms when taking pictures of this.

The Malaysiakini journalist lodged a report at the Sungai Nibong police station late last night.

Lebih 2,000 kumpul di Balai Polis Jinjang

Harakahdaily, 20 Mei 2013

(Aruchelvan berucap kepada orang ramai yang berkumpul di depan Balai Polis Jinjang..Pic Omak Kau)

KUALA LUMPUR: Pelbagai pihak dari pelbagai kaum dan keturunan berhimpun di depan Balai Polis Jinjang malam ini bagi membantah penahanan Adam Adli.

Mereka berkumpul secara aman sambil menyalakan lilin tanda sokongan moral untuk aktivis pelajar yang ditahan di Seksyen 4 Akta Hasutan dan Seksyen 124(b) Kanun Keseksaan itu.

Tidak kurang 2,500 rakyat dari pelbagai keturunan, tua dan muda serta lelaki dan wanita telah berkampung  sebagai menunjukkan sokongan padu kepada beliau yang dikini sedang ditahan di lokap Balai Polis Jinjang setelah mendapat perintah reman selama 5 hari.

Kebanyakan mereka memakai baju hitam lambang sokongan kepada perjuangan Black 505 iaitu hari hitam pilihan raya Malaysia.

Antara yang kelihatan adalah Nurul Izzah, Datuk Ambiga Srevanasan serta kedua ibu bapa Adam Adli sendiri.

Penahanan Adam Adli Abdul Halim mengikut Seksyen 124(b) Kanun Keseksaan dan juga Seksyen 4 Akta Hasutan dikecam Ketua Pemuda PAS, Nasrudin Hasan sebelum ini.

Beliau menyifatkan tindakan menahan Adam sebagai lambang ketakutan pemerintah dan mempertikaikan apa salah Adam yang ingin menyuarakan keinginan rakyat Malaysia kepada pemerintah.

“Saya mewakili seluruh warga Dewan Pemuda PAS Malaysia, mendoakan agar Adam Adli tidak patah semangat mendepani ujian getir perjuangan ini.

“Serentak itu kami mengecam sekeras-kerasnya tindakan tidak bertamadun yang dilakukan oleh pihak berkuasa ke atas saudara Adam Adli,” katanya pada satu kenyataan media.

Student activist’s workplace raided

Student activist Adam Adli’s workplace, Radio Bangsar Utama, was raided by plainclothes officers around 4pm today in a random search exercise of his belongings.

adam adli raid 190513The 24-year-old was handcuffed and brought into the office in Bangsar Utama, where he stays, before searching his place.

Adam’s friend Mandeep Singh, who witnessed the search, said the police were looking for Adam’s computer, but he does not own one.

The cops left after the 25-minute raid without confiscating anything from the office or from Adam’s car.

Adam (left) was arrested yesterday and is currently being investigated under both the Sedition Act and the Penal Code. He has been remanded for five days.

Some of Adam’s friends who were in the office managed to feed him a bit of food and water because he looked exhausted.

Adam’s father Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid, a 52-year-old retiree who had come down from Penang to offer moral support to his son, said that he is proud of what his son has done.

“If no parents are willing to start it, let family be the first. We have never stopped him. We have encouraged him,” he said.

However, Abdul Halim said that Adam was not trying to threaten national security with his comments.

“We are only seeking our freedom to speech, we are demanding our rights as rakyat,” he said, before brooding that democracy is “dead” in the country.

“Democracy goes beyond what we say and what is being written,” he added.

Cops widen probe against Adam Adli

Student activist Adam Adli, who was arrested yesterday, is also being probed under Section 124 (B) of the Penal Code in addition to being investigated under the Section 4 of the Sedition Act.

His lawyer Eric Paulsen said that the police had told a magistrate this morning that Adam is also being investigated for participating in an act “detrimental to parliamentary democracy”, which is now a crime based on a newly amended provision under the Penal Code which came into effect late last year.

Paulsen said that this provision under the Penal Code was “too general”.

Adam is investigated for the remarks he made during a public forum at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) on May 13, where he, alongside several other activists, urged the people to stage a massive street protest against electoral fraud.

Investigations are also based on a report by Free Malaysia Today, quoting rally organisers telling the forum that they will use the rally to “topple the government”.

This means Adam could face up to 20 years in jail if he is found guilty under the Penal Code.

Candlelight vigil for arrested student activist

Saturday, 18 May 2013 Super Admin

Stephanie Sta Maria,

An overnight candlelight vigil will be held tonight in front of the Jinjang police remand centre, in protest against the arrest of student activist Adam Adli Abd Halim earlier today.

Adam, 24, was picked up by the police outside his Bangsar home at around 4pm and taken straight to Jinjang where he is being charged under the Sedition Act 1948.

If found guilty, he could be jailed for up to three years, fined not more than RM5,000 or both.
His arrest is believed to be linked to his remarks at a post-election forum organised by Suara Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) on May 13 where he told the audience that Malaysians “cannot wait for five years to overthrow Umno and BN”.
According to fellow activist Mandeep Singh, tonight’s vigil is being organised by Adam’s friends and supporters who will be camping overnight in front of the remand centre.
“We call on those who are joining us in solidarity tonight to arrive at 8pm, wear black and bring a tent along,” Mandeep said when contacted this evening.
“We will know by tonight which court Adam will be taken to tomorrow for the remand process.”
Mandeep added that he was with Adam until the latter was taken into the lock-up, and that Adam was “strong, fine and smiling”.
Adam’s lawyer Latheefa Koya meanwhile said the authorities had yet to take an official statement from Adam and were unlikely to do so tonight.
“What concerns us is that he was picked up and taken straight to Jinjang which is a remand centre, instead of being questioned and having his statement taken,” she told
