Malaysia: Arbitrary and incommunicado detention/fear of ill-treatment/prisoners of conscience

, Index number: ASA 28/006/2000

At least 50 people, among them four leading members of the opposition Parti Keadilan Nasional - National Justice Party - have been arrested in connection with a 15 April demonstration, and a magistrate has remanded them in custody for further questioning. Amnesty International fears they are at risk of serious ill-treatment in detention, and is concerned at this seemingly arbitrary decision to hold them for further questioning. The names of those arrested include: Tian Chua, Roslan Kassim, Mohd Ezam Mohd Nor, N. Gopalankrishnan, Abdul Malek Hussain and Mohd Hafiz Hashim.
