Published:  |  Modified:

Two weeks after the Bersih 5 rally, police continue to call in activists and opposition leaders over their participation in the demonstrations that saw 40,000 people flood the streets of downtown Kuala Lumpur to demand electoral and institutional reforms.

Cops are also calling in organisers of the Free Maria vigils, which were being held at the time to call for the release of then detained Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah, who was taken into custody on the eve of the electoral reform rally.
