Arrest of DAPSY Leaders and Members

Immediate Comment by the DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY) Secretariat on Tuesday, 19 May 2009, at Petaling Jaya:
Arrest of DAPSY Leaders and Members: The Police Continues to Show Utter Disregard to Democracy and Freedom
DAPSY staunchly condemns the arrest of DAPSY leaders and members at a candlelight vigil in Seputeh earlier tonight.
DAPSY Deputy Chairperson and Teratai State Assemblyperson Jenice Lee and Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching are among those who were arrested right at the start of DAPSY Seputeh’s candlelight vigil on the death of democracy.
At a time when the people of Malaysia are mourning the accelerated death of democracy in this country fueled by the shameful events in Perak, the police has reinforced the idea that democracy does not exist in this country.
DAPSY demands the immediate release of all DAPSY leaders and members that were unjustly locked up tonight, and calls for the government to revive the democratic process to save the face of our nation that has been tainted by numerous scandals and instances of human rights abuse.
