Poll reform group Bersih spokesperson Wong Chin Huat has been arrested under the Sedition Act tonight by a team of police officers at his home in Taman Sri Sentosa in Kuala Lumpur.
According to his lawyer Edmund Bon, the activist was arrested at 8pm after a police report was lodged today. He said he received a call from Wong (left).
“I tried negotiating with the police officer (on the phone) but they won’t listen to me.
“They didn’t want to tell under what section of the Sedition Act (that the arrest was made) and who the complainant is.”
