Publisher Ho Kay Tat and Malaysian Insider chief Jahabar Sadiq will be released on police bail today. The police will not apply to remand them, said their lawyer. On Monday, a magistrate threw out a remand application to detain three other Insider editors.

Their statements are being taken after which they would be released on police bail, Syahredza Johan said on Twitter from Dang Wangi station.

Jahabar and Kat Tat were held overnight in the lockup after being arrested yesterday when they had came to the police station to see to the three editors arrested on Sunday and to give their statements. Lionel Morais, Amin Iskandar and Zulkifli Sulong were freed on police bail yesterday after police remand applications failed.

Two sub-editors, a reporter, the human resources manager and the IT administrator were also questioned by police yesterday.
