Malaysian police to arrest more leaders of ethnic Indian minority communityDecember 11th, 2007 - 12:55 pm ICT by admin
Kuala Lumpur, Dec 11 (ANI): Malaysian police have claimed securing enough evidence against the detained leaders of the ethnic Indian minority community, and added that more leaders of Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) would be arrested in the days ahead.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan has said that the collected evidences would be sufficient for the court to charge the detained leaders, who were protesting against the discriminatory treatment meted out to ethnic Indian minority community in Malaysia.
“We will not go soft on parties who want to threaten the nation’s peace and stability,” The Star quoted Musa, as saying.
He added that more drastic measures could be taken if the security situation worsens, and the strict Internal Security Act would be invoked against them only as a last resort.
“We don’t want another black mark in our country’s history. Certain precautionary measures should be taken before the worst happens,” he added.
He also said that that the police would recommend debarring certain lawyers from practising law, who were charged and found guilty of participating in ‘illegal rallies’. (ANI)
