Candle light vigil in Penang
Sin Chew Daily reporters, non-governmental organisation activists and former Universiti Sains Malaysia students have joined in a candle light vigil at the state police headquarters in Penang. Politicians from the Barisan Nasional and Pakatan have also dropped by to show support. The National Union of Journalists has issued a statement to protest against the use of the Internal Security Act on reporter Tan Hoon Cheng. Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, meanwhile, has been taken to Bukit Aman for questioning. Her party colleagues are at the party headquarters in Petaling Jaya to keep themselves updated on the situation.
