Sivarasa says police acted illegally, says ‘something will happen’

After keeping Nurul Izzah Anwar overnight at Jinjang lock-up, police drove her home and searched the house for a copy of her speech in Parliament, in which she had criticised the judiciary, before releasing her.

Her lawyer, Sivarasa Rasiah, who was at the house, said: “They were searching for a copy of the speech which they could have easily obtained yesterday had they asked, as we will have given it to them.” Sivarasa said.

He said the transcript of the speech was part of Hansard (the official parliamentary record of debates) and Sivarasa said Nurul Izzah was considering legal action against the police.

“You can expect something to happen pretty soon,” he said, according to the Rakyat Post.
