Phil Roberts on outrageous arrests in Malaysia

"Expressing views and holding a peaceful, public march should not be considered a crime in Malaysia or anywhere else in the world. These arrests are nothing short of outrageous, and Human Rights Watch demands that Malaysia immediately and unconditionally release all the peaceful May 1st anti-GST protesters. This wave of arrests should raise alarm bells among international friends of Malaysia about just how far the powers that be in Putrajaya are dragging the country off the path of democratic, rights-respecting governance."

Statement attributable to Phil Robertson, Deputy Director, Asia Division, Human Rights Watch on arrest of anti-GST protesters in Kuala Lumpur.
