The four University Malaya (UM) students who were arrested for their protest in front of Parliament in August have been called in for a ‘mandatory’ discussion with the university’s authorities this Thursday.

One of them, Khairol Najib Hashim posted to social media a letter that was e-mailed by UM to four of them today, asking them to attend the session.

The letter was signed by the deputy vice-Chancellor (student affairs & alumni) Dr Rohana Yusof. It also said the four would face a disciplinary action if they failed to show up.

“We are shocked because the usual SOP (standard operating procedure) is to send a show-cause letter and then a hearing. There has never been a ‘discussion’ before,” Khairol told Malaysiakini.

The other three UM students who received the letter were Ammar Atan, Teoh Ann Siang and Sharafi Ilman.

Khairol said they will make an announcement whether they would attend the session as one of them is attending practicum out of Kuala Lumpur.

Court orders early release of activists

All but one of the students and activists who were arrested for protesting outside Parliament Tuesday night were freed by the Kuala Lumpur High Court today.

The court had reduced their remand period from three days to two after a revision and the youths are expected to be released later today.

The 16 were arrested under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

However, the 17th activist, Heng Kiah Chun, was denied revision as he was arrested under Section 353 of the Penal Code.

Section 353 of the Penal Code relates to the use of criminal force in obstructing public officials and does not allow for a revision.

: says the appeal for the 16 detainees will take place at the Jalan Duta High Court @ 3.30pm

Anak ditangkap, bapa berkumpul depan lokap

Apabila mengetahui anak ditangkap polis, ayah kepada Lee Chung Lun berkejar ke Pusat Tahanan Polis Jinjang awal pagi hari ini untuk menanti anaknya dibebaskan.

Jika ada yang bertegur sapa dengannya, beliau akan menjawab: “Semuanya baik, saya menyokong anak saya.”

Namun, apabila tahu polis berjaya mendapat perintah reman pada kesemua 17 orang yang ditangkap semalam di depan parlimen, ayah Lee ternyata sakit hati.

“Ayah seumur hidup pun tidak pernah masuk penjara tetapi anak yang berkelakuan baik pula direman. Kerajaan ini tidak adil,” katanya dengan nada suara yang marah.

Sambil berbicara, mata lelaki 51 tahun yang hanya mahu dikenali sebagai Lee itu mula bergenang air mata.

Si ayah juga berkata, beliau amat menyokong anaknya yang kini belajar di Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) untuk menyertai aktiviti bagi menyuarakan pandangan mahasiswa terhadap isu-isu negara.

“Saya jelas dengan tingkah laku anak saya di luar rumah kerana kami selalu ada mesyuarat keluarga,” katanya.

Pak cik itu, Ng Keng Ming, 55 tahun, berkata dia tidak bimbang akan keadaan anak saudaranya itu kerana beliau percaya mereka tidak bersalah.

Namun, ibu Ng ternyata sangat bimbang pada keadaan anak perempuannya sehingga membuatkannya menangis.

“Saya menyenangkan hatinya, tapi dia (ibu Ng) kata anak perempuannya pertama kali ditangkap polis, jadi dia agak bimbang,” katanya.

Unfazed by arrests, more students gather for #OccupyParliament

BY MELISSA CHI

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 26 — Student activists have decided to continue the #OccupyParliament sit-in that was interrupted last night by police arrests, although 17 from the initial batch of protesters are still under lock-and-key at the Jinjang district police headquarters here.

The group’s co-coordinator Mohamad Luqman Nul Haqim from Universiti Malaya said the students will continue their protest outside the Parliament building.

“Our friends who were arrested told us to continue this fight, we are not afraid,” he told reporters outside the Jinjang police lock-up.

3-day remand for students at sit-in outside Parliament

3-day remand for students who protested outside Parliament

Embedded image permalink

The 17 students and activists arrested by police yesterday for protesting outside Parliament have been remanded for three days.

They will be held at the Jinjang police detention centre.

Bar Council president Steven Thiru, who is acting as an observer, said they are being investigated under Section 124B of the Penal Code or activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy.

Thiru (centre in photo) said those remanded were also being investigated under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

He said the authorities had asked the students to be remanded for a week but the magistrate only granted three days.

Thiru said lawyers for the detainees will apply for a review at the High Court because the lawyers are of the opinion that the police has misintepreted Section 124B of the Penal Code.

“The police did not provide any evidence that there was violence… They also could not prove that the detainees acted against the Federal Constitution,” he said.

Gerakan youth: Double standards in student arrests?

Gerakan youth queries police double standards in students arrest

Embedded image permalink

Hafiz Yatim     Today 11:00 am     Today 12:11 pm

Gerakan Youth deputy chief Andy Yong today questioned the police for practising double standards for arresting students last night but not those who participated at the anti-Bersih rally.

Yong (photo), who is also a lawyer, said the students had only gathered for a peaceful protest in front of the Parliament.

“Last weekend we had the anti-Bersih group which openly declared violence, and hence more so they should be arrested under the penal code. They rallied in front of Sogo with monkey shows recently. Why the double standards (by the police),” he asked.

Yong quizzed whether police would resort to more arrests this weekend following the Bersih 4 rally.

“I hope the authorities will be fair and detain those who have violated the laws from both sides.

“The Peaceful Assembly Act 2012, provides every citizen the right to assemble, whether or not notice was given to the police. I hope the police force’s intention in criminalising the right to assemble is in accordance with the law,” he reminded.

Unless there is an actual report of violence escalating at the rally, Yong said there is no need for the police to enforce the Act.

The Gerakan Youth leader cited the Court of Appeal case of Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad vs Public Prosecutor, which stipulates the requisite of giving prior notice before an assembly is deemed unlawful, and that the punishment accorded for not giving a notice is unconstitutional.

Students: If Parliament cannot, we’ll occupy Jinjang

Embedded image permalink

After being swept away from outside Parliament House by police last night, a student group is determined to continue camping outside the Parliament, or at least outside the Kuala Lumpur Central Police Lock-up in Jinjang.

Kesatuan Mahasiswa Malaysia secretary Nazrul Nazir told Malaysiakini that #Langkahsiswa will continue with its plan to camp outside Parliament if all 17 of their comrades arrested are released after the remand hearing this morning. Failing this, they will “occupy Jinjang” in solidarity with them.

“We will not stop our demands,” Nazrul said in front of the barricaded compound near the lock-up complex as about 50 students, NGO members, politicians and members of the public stood in solidarity with the arrested students in Jinjang through the wee hours of this morning, while another group of students slept on cardboard boxes by the roadside.

Supporters and family members kept arriving until 4am today to ask the police to release those arrested and to stand in solidarity with them.

Among those who turned up were Gerakan Harapan Baru chief Mohamad Sabu and PKR vice-president Tian Chua. Several lawyers, among others PKR’s Radzlan Jalal, also turned up after receiving news of the arrests.

The police force has come under fire for arresting student demonstrators under Section 124B of the Penal Code.

Speaking to Malaysiakini, Lawyers For Liberty co-founder Eric Paulsen said Section 124B, which punishes activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy, is not meant to be used on students doing a sit-in outside Parliament.

“It’s supposed to be used against groups like Al-Maunah, which advocates armed struggle or violence. Certainly not for a group of students.

“The investigation under Section 124B is an exaggeration. It certainly does not bode well for the professionalism and impartiality of the police,” Paulsen said.

After a standoff outside Parliament, police arrested 16 students -13 men and three women – and took them to the Sentul police headquarters.

Soon after they were arrested at about 10.30pm, another student activist was nabbed for taking photos of confiscated stuff.

Some police officers tried to stop journalists from snapping photos on the second arrest.

The activist was seen bleeding on his leg.

Earlier, a group of 30 policemen clad in police vest asked the students who were camping in front of Parliament since yesterday to leave.

#OccupyParliament sit-in undeterred by DBKL warning

BY KAMLES KUMAR

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 25 — Students camping outside Parliament here in their #OccupyParliament protest to push for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s resignation have refused to budge, despite Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) officers warning them to leave this morning.

According to student activist Ammar Atan, a group of DBKL officers approached the 20-odd students from public universities, who were camping there since yesterday afternoon, at about 10am today and told them to remove their belongings from the pedestrian pathway and to vacate the premises.

“We hung up banners and had our mats spread on the walkway, they asked us to remove all that. Said it was public property. They also asked us to leave but we insisted that we will stay here till our demand is met,” Ammar, who is also the University of Malaya Student Council (PMUM) student leader, told Malay Mail Online when contacted.

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 24 — Ahead of this weekend’s Bersih 4 rally, a group of students have gathered in front of Parliament for a sit-in protest dubbed “#OccupyParliament” and have refused to leave until Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak steps down.

Student activist Fahmi Zainol said about 50 to 100 students will take turns sitting in front of Parliament every day until Najib quits and until the country’s federal lawmakers get together to discuss solutions for various issues plaguing the country.

“We are in front of Parliament with our demands asking the prime minister to step down and also asking that after he steps down, all MPs gather in Parliament to give us an alternative about the current issues.

“We will not leave Parliament until our demands are met,” he told Malay Mail Online when contacted this evening.

At the time of writing, about 10 students were gathered at the gates of Parliament despite the rain and have pledged continue with the #OccupyParliament movement well-beyond this weekend’s Bersih 4 rally.

“Before Bersih or even after Bersih, it doesn’t matter, we will continue as long as Najib is in power,” he said.
