GERAKAN WANTS PM TO RELEASE HINDRAF 5

GERAKAN has requested Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to consider releasing unconditionally the 5 HINDRAF leaders who have been detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) at Kamunting Detention Centre immediately to please the Indian community.

This call was made by GERAKAN's Assistant Secretary K K Supramaniam today.

The five Hindraf leaders are P Uthayakumar, M Manoharan (recently elected as a State Assemblyman in Selangor), R Kenghadharan, V Ganabatirau and T Vasantha Kumar who were arrested on December 13, 2007 and placed under a two-year detention order at the Kamunting Detention Centre for allegedly being a national threat, which subsequently have been found untrue by the police.
