It’s unnecessarily provocative. It shows that we are a country that abuses the law. The arrest in my view is to instill fear in the public. In the Barisan Nasional’s eyes, it has become increasingly inconvenient that the people are being more courageous and assertive of their rights. They need to push (that) back in. It could be a preclude to a well-designed crackdown on the people’s movement.

We have to do everything necessary to ensure that the basic democratic values are respected. We will do what we can.
