Tian Chua, Tamrin and Haris rearrested just four days after release

PKR vice-president Tian Chua, social activist Haris Ibrahim and PAS member Tamrin Gaffar have been rearrested, just four days after they were released by a magistrate after remand for an earlier arrest was denied.

A post on Tian Chua's Twitter account reads; "Tian Chua has just been arrested. #admin".
A later post said Tian Chua would be taken to the Dang Wangi police station, and about eight policemen were present during his arrest.

However, there are currently no further details on his arrest.
Student activist Safwan Anang, was also arrested earlier.

Lawyer and Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo who is acting for Haris - Anything But Umno (ABU) leader - confirmed that they were arrested at about 7pm.
"They are now in the Dang Wangi district police headquarters. They have been rearrested under the Sedition Act.

"We don't really know much about the situation and we are going there now," he said when contacted.
Both Haris and Tamrin, together with PKR vice-president Tian Chua were arrested last Thursday for investigations under the Penal Code and Sedition Act.

However, all three of them were released the next day when the magistrate rejected the remand application by the police.

All of them previously spoke at a May 13 Forum at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.
