Teoh’s sister Lee Lan, three activists held in Bidor

Teoh Beng Hock’s sister Lee Lan and three other activists have been taken to a police station in Bidor, Perak, after distributing leaflets calling for a change of government, as well as justice for the DAP political aide who had died in custody four years ago.

‘Malaysians for Beng Hock’ coordinator Ng Yap Hwa, who was among those detained, said the group had come across five plainclothes personnel who were sitting in two vehicles, one of these without the police logo.

“We asked if we were being arrested, but they refused to say anything. They asked us to cooperate and follow them to the police station for investigations,” said Ng ( right ).

Since the police took away their MyKads, they had no choice but to go to the station, he said.

The police had then recorded their statements and allowed them to leave at 3pm.

Ng said that the police didn’t reveal under what laws they are investigated, but only recorded their statements under Section 112 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

“Among the police’s questions included who are our organisers, what we are doing, what are the contents of the leaflets, where did we obtain the loudspeakers and what had we announced out loud using the loudspeakers.”

He added that the police only reminded them not to use any loudspeakers before nomination day, and that no further action was taken.

He noted that this is the second time that ‘Malaysians for Beng Hock’ had been harassed by the police during the election period.

Lee Lan ( left ) and three other activists were also detained by the police for six hours when they had been distributing leaflets in the 2010 Galas by-election.

“This proved that the democratic image of Najib’s government is only a guise,” added Ng.
