For Amanah Youth vice-chief Shazni Munir Mohd Ithnin and former Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) student activist Ahmad Shukri Kamarudin, who have been detained for sedition investigations, their night was illuminated by a candlelight vigil staged by over 40 supporters yesterday.

Participants began gathering across the street from the Dang Wangi police station at 8.15pm, every one of them carrying lit white candles and placards calling for the release of Shazni and Ahmad Shukri, as well as the abolishment of the controversial Sedition Act.

The usually serene sidewalk facing the police station became the scene of passionate chanting, speeches, poetry reading and singing.
