16th July : Remembering those who died in custody

1,805 lives perished in our remand cells, prisons and detention centres between 2003 and 16th July, last year.

Who are they?

View the ‘Tribute To The Custodial Death Victims Since 2003 ‘ powerpoint presentation that was screened at the Teoh Beng Hock memorial at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall last year, to get an idea of how little we know of those lives lost at the hands of those in authority.

Custodial Death Presentation

This Friday, 16th July, at 8am, the family of the late Beng hock will conduct prayers outside Plaza Masalam, in Shah Alam, in memory of Beng Hock.

I view this as a private matter for family members and will not be intruding upon their privacy.

At 8pm on the same day, DAP Youth are organising a memorial for Beng Hock at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall last year. I may head out there later.

This Friday, at 7pm,  Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia gathers to lay flowers by the river next to the Bar Council building in memory of those lives that were lost whilst in the custody of the very authorities who are supposed to protect us all. Details can be got HERE.

See you all this Friday outside the Bar Council building.
