Lawyer Sankara Nair says Kok, a DAP MP and Selangor senior executive councillor, telephoned him to say police released her today.
The DAP is holding a press conference at the party headquarters later this afternoon.
Kok was arrested on Sept 12 under the Internal Security Act, which provides for indefinite detention without trial, after she allegedly complained about the noise of morning prayers from a mosque. She has denied making such complaints.
Police arrested Kok, a blogger and a journalist on the same day, but the journalist was later released. De facto law minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim resigned this week after protesting the arrests. — AP
