MEO-Net managed to contact the Investigation Officer Inspector Marina today and was told that Hii Chong Fatt from Sibu has given his statetment today and the police will decide whether to charge him under Society Act tomorrow. Hii had not given a statement -hoping to get a lawyer advice first. However the police had invoked an obscure law to deny all Bersih detainees legal access.  No one was able to visit Hii either because the permission to visit Hii was given after 4.30pm, the end of visiting hours. Visiting detainees starts from 9.00am daily. A small team will be visiting Bukit Jalil police station to see Hii tomorrow at about 9.00am to give him moral support.

Meanwhile Hii’s wife has called repeatedly to MEO-Net to find out about the whereabout and situation of Hii. They were not so supportive of Hii’s persistent activism. However after Hii’s arrest video at You Tube (uploaded by Malaysiakini, supplied by MEO-Net)reached over 200 000 viewing many people called to hii’s family to offer support. Hii’s wife called to say that the whole family now has turned around to support him! Some Sibuan has hailed Hii as their new found hero-and may send a welcoming team to the airport for him!
