Latest update from Lawas: the 3 persons arrested this afternoon will have to spend their night in police lock-up though what stand between their release is only the recording of a statement. The intention to keep them in the police lock up therefore seems to punish them with the extended remand, a typical style of police to play judge, prosecutor and executioner!
Outside the police lock-up supporters of the villagers congregate to give support to their friends. They will, according to reports we received, regroup to strengthen the blockade at the 15km point out of Lawas.
Watch out for more updates tomorrow to see how the breached blockade will be closed again.
