My colleagues and I are being arrested and are now in Simpang Tiga Police Station Kuching. I was told I was put under arrest under Sedition Act 1948. But police did not tell me what activities or words that I said were against the law.
In the past few days after the General Elections are over many Sarawakians expressed their concern about the possiblity of Gabungan Parti Sarawak to form the federal government with PAS. Despite many Sarawakians had expressed their views in the press or social media, premier and his colleagues still wanted to proceed with their plans.
Public is concerned because PAS as the party is seen as an extremist party and their style of politics and ideology are not acceptable by people of Sarawak.
More than ten police officers came with police vehicles fully armed to arrest us.
Our identity cards are also being seized by the police.
We are only carrying our political work peaceful and I don't see anything wrong. I consider coming to arrest us during the night when our family members are sleeping is something that should be avoided.
Police could call us in the morning. I was already in bed when I heard my phone wringing.
I suggest such an arrest at late night should stop and unnecessary because being a retired police officer I am known to the police. I can say depriving me of my sleep is against human rights and unconstitutional as to deprive a person's sleep affects the person's life.
