Proham condemns Maria chin's detention under sosma

Proham Press Release

Proham condemns the arrest of Maria Chin Abdullah under SOSMA. It is a clear abuse of power and is a breach of the undertaking given by the Executive in  that SOSMA will only be used against terrorists. Maria Chin Abdullah is a human rights defender and not a terrorist.

Maria Chin Abdullah and Bersih are merely seeking reform of the current electoral system in Malaysia to ensure free, clean and fair elections. This cannot be detrimental to, or undermining Parliamentary democracy. On the contrary, it strengthens Parliamentary democracy.

Proham calls on the government to immediately release Maria Chin Abdullah and all other supporters of Bersih.

Proham also calls on the Government to heed Bersih's call for reform and to work with them in taking proactive steps towards improving our current electoral system.
