HINDRAF Wanted All Five Out, Not Just Two

When the news was announced yesterday that among the 13 ISA detainees to be freed, two of them are the lawyers of the HINDRAF who were detained although they were merely doing their duties as their lawyers.

HINDRAF, though are okay to have the two out, wanted the remaining three to be released as well. So there was a plan to hold a vigil at 6 p.m in front of the Kamunting Detention Camp main gates. Of course, this plan has attracted the attention of the police, but they managed to convince the police that they would disperse as soon as they have finished their on-site press conference.

However, heavy rain for more than two hours prompted the event to be delayed as people had to wait for the rain to subside. As for the police, four squads of FRUs (trucks) were deployed onto the scene, as due to the heavy rain, they had to wait and even had their breaks at a warung.

After they had prepared themselves at a shade site opposite the main gates, they walked across the main road to start their vigil, chanting the word "Bertaubat". Fortunately at the time where the images are captured, the FRUs have yet to act against the vigilers.
