DAP condemns the arrests by BN of DAP leaders and Bersih (e/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Penang On 18.11.2016.

DAP condemns the arrests by BN of DAP leaders, National Organising Secretary and MP for Seremban Anthony Loke and Selangor State Committee member Ronnie Liu earlier this evening as well as Bersih leaders, including Maria Chin Abdullah. Will there be more arrests in this latest police crackdown on the Bersih rally tomorrow under the so-called preventive detention?

DAP will not be surprised if the police would also arrest some red-shirt leaders to provide some sort of impression of fair-treatment to justify the action against opposition and Bersih leaders. DAP calls on BN to uphold the principle of peaceful freedom of assembly by allowing those who gather peacefully and acting against those who use violence.

LIM GUAN ENG

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员于2016年11月18日在槟城乔治市发表的声明:

民主行动党遣责国阵于今日傍晚逮捕了行动党领袖如全国组织秘书兼芙蓉国会议员陆兆福、雪州州委刘天球、净选盟领袖玛丽亚陈等。接下来,在所谓的预防性扣留下,会不会有更多人在最新的警察对净选盟集会镇压下被逮捕呢?

行动党绝对不会惊讶,要是警方也同时逮捕一些红衫军,制造看起来公平对待红黄集会的印象,以合法化他们采取行动对付净选盟及反对党领袖的举动。行动党吁请国阵坚守和平集会自由的原则,允许那些和平集会者能够和平集会, 并采取行动对付那些使用暴力的人士。

林冠英
