FREED: Teresa Kok relates her one-week ordeal - NST

KUALA LUMPUR, FRI: Sept 19, 2008

Seputeh MP Teresa Kok who was detained under ISA has been released. The assemblyman for Kinrara was arrested at 11.20pm last Friday believed to be over a religious matter concerning a mosque.

Kok called her counsel N. Sankara Nair at 1pm while she was being transported from Bukit Aman to the Travers Police Station.
Sankara met her there.

They are now on their way to DAP headquarters where she will hold a press conference at 3.30pm.

In a phone interview with the NST moments ago, Kok related her ordeal.

“They kept questioning me about the article (Utusan’s article ). I kept denying it," she said. “How can I be considered a national security threat?

"Till today, I don’t know why I was held under the ISA.”
It was a totally ridiculous stuation. Nobody should be held under the ISA,” she told NST.

Utusan Malaysia’s Sept 10 article entitled "Azan, Jawi, JAIS dan ba-alif ba-ya" accused Kok of petitioning a mosque to reduce the volume for azan.

She had vehemently denied the allegation.
