One of the Bersih eve’s arrestees Mr Hii Chong Fatt of Sibu remain incontactable since his arrest on July 8th. His phone number has been out of service. Even his worried wife from Sibu called up Malaysiakini which broke the story to find out about him. MEO-Net has alerted the Bersih various legal aid and hotline service to provide legal aid to Hii-and finally managed to get someone after numerous calls. (Apparently Bersih’s legal aid numbers were still not operational on the Bersih eve). The last we heard from Hii was when he called from the police station where he was held -and was told by the police accompanying him that they were going to Dang Wangi police station, next to Stadium Merdeka, to see the Investigation Officer.
Since then he became incontactable. It is important that Hii be released because most if not all the Bersih arrests have been released. After all what has Hii done more than all other Bersih supporters? He did not even wore the `illegal’ Bersih t-shirt. He was in his usual `uniform’ where he printed his phone number. The police should come clean on what has happened to his case in order not to further tarnish the police’s already tarnishedpublic standing post-Bersih 2.
