About 40 opposition MPs today marched to Bukit Aman police headquarters to demand the release of Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah who is detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma).

They also demanded police cease harassment of MPs and whistleblowers, for Sosma to be repealed and for the protection of MPs rights to speak in Parliament.

They marched from the Parliament gates to Bukit Aman, while chanting 'Bebaskan Maria' (Free Maria), 'Hentikan Sosma' (End Sosma) and 'Hidup Bersih' (Long live Bersih).
