The five unionists who were arrested during a protest outside the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh yesterday are set to be released this evening after a Magistrate's Court denied a request for a four-day remand.

The group of frontliners from the National Union of Workers in Hospital Support and Allied Services (NUWHSAS) were detained after protesting against what they claimed were union-busting tactics by their employer Edgenta UEMS.
