Kuala Lumpur, May 6 (ANI): Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M. Manoharan, who is being detained under the Internal Security Act, will not be released just because of the brouhaha over his possible resignation, Home Minister Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said.
Manoharan was arrested under the ISA for certain reasons, he said.
“I can tolerate a review, a new approach and openness, but I will not compromise on national importance, security and the country’s stability and dignity,” The Star quoted him, as saying.
