Hii Tiong Huat-the lone protestor from Sibu, has just walked out of the HKL hopspital-but his wife was told of incredible conditions set on his release: that he must not stand next to any politician, and he must leave KL in 2 days! Anyone can tell these are not medical conditions by any stretch of imagination! Hii was also asked to see psychiatric doctors after he go back to Sibu! Hii expressed unhappiness that even the doctors and the hospital has been politicised!
Hii’s wife has flown in last night and have been struggling with the hospital for Hii’s release the whole night, with the help of a lawyer. Hii was taken into a police lock up for the 3rd time after arriving in KL from Sibu on 8th July, all because he held a self-made placard bearing a simple message `Bersih-(handcuff picture), Kotor OK’. It is a great wonder why anyone should find this offensive or illegal! Since he held this on his own it cannot be an illegal assembly.
The latest arrest saw Hii being thrown into a psychiatric ward in the general hospital-after he was released from the Dang Wangi police’s lock up and when he asked for medical check up for the bruises on him caused by the rough arrest. Hii was pinned on the ground when a few policemen arrested him-without providing any ground.
Hii appears cheerful when he emerged from the hospital and sopke to Sarawaknews. While Hii was hit by abnormal attacks by the police for doing something quite normal it must beg a question if the police and the power behind them are really normal?
SIbu MP Richard Wong Ho Leng has called to defend his constant critic Hii-he said that Hii is eccentric-but not a nut case.
