KUALA LUMPUR, MON: Sept 15, 2008
The DAP will lead Pakatan Rakyat to hold a “Free Teresa Kok Parliamentary Caucus” meeting at the Parliament House on Wednesday.
DAP advisor and MP for Ipoh Timur Lim Kit Siang urged all Members of Parliament (MPs) from both sides of the divide to attend the meeting.
The meeting would be an acid test for all MPs and cabinet ministers of their stand on the Internal Security Act (ISA), he told a news conference at the Parliament Lobby here after submitting a letter on Teresa’s arrest to Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia today.
He said the meeting would also demand that the Home Ministry immediately release another detainee, blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, and retract the showcause letters it issued to the Sin Chew Daily, The Sun and Suara Keadilan.
