Rozana said once she and their lawyers arrived at the office the police clarified that their investigations had nothing to do with SIS.
“We have been informed that their investigations were more toward what she (the staff member) used to do in her previous work.
“We have been informed that our staff would be taken to the Dang Wangi police headquarters for further investigations.”

Police raid not related to Sisters in Islam, clarifies activist http://ln.is/www.malaysiakini.com/CzqmB …
SIS: It was not a raid, just a misunderstanding
Police only wanted to speak to one of the SIS staff members on a separate matter, says Executive Director Rozana Isa.
PETALING JAYA: Sisters in Islam (SIS) revealed that the so-called raid at their office in Jalan Universiti earlier today was a misunderstanding.
Executive Director Rozana Isa said the police had not come to conduct a raid on SIS but to speak to one of their staff members on a separate matter.
She said she was out of the office when she received a phone call from a staff member that the police were at the door.
She then gave specific instructions not to let anyone in until she got there.
That’s when the situation escalated as the police were adamant and started making threats about breaking down the door.
“The staff negotiated with them to wait for our lawyers to come but they got very impatient and told my staff they were obstructing justice,” Rozana said in a statement issued today.
“We were willing to cooperate but wanted to know what the matter was about specifically.
“The communication on this matter was not clear at all.”
She explained that she had given instructions not to let anyone in because she was afraid for her staff’s safety.
“I informed the police that the safety and security of the SIS staff was paramount and my responsibility.”
Rozana thanked everyone who contacted them after the ordeal.
