The police have tonight arrested more elected representatives – an opposition parliamentarian as well as a state assemblyperson – at a candlelight vigil to ‘mourn the death of democracy’.
Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching and Teratai state assemblyperson Jenice Lee, two 20-something DAP female politicians, were arrested along with nine party workers at the vigil in Seputeh at 8.20pm.
The vigil, which was held outside DAP MP Teresa Kok’s office saw the participation of dozens of black T-shirt clad protesters.
According to the organisers, the vigil was to mark the “killing of democracy by the illegal government in Perak”. Those arrested are being taken to the Brickfields police station.
