Aliran is gravely concerned that one of our members Sarajun Hoda Abdul Hassan has been arrested this evening.
We are told he has been taken to the Dang Wangi Police Station.
The reason for his arrest is unclear but it is believed he was detained under section 298 of the Penal Code and section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.
We call on the authorities to state the reason for his arrest and to allow him immediate access to a lawyer. He must also be allowed access to any medication he may need.
