“We did not arrest them, we merely took them to the police station and they were later released… We just escorted them to the police station to make a police report about their wrongdoing. They followed…I don’t know if this is assumed as arrest, but it was just for a police report. It’s not like they were put in a lock-up.” -KL Datuk Bandar Ahmad Fuad Ismail on whether Occupy Dataran’ activist Fahmi and student Umar had been unlawfully arrested by DBKL officers 2 days ago.

Note that DBKL officers do not have any powers to arrest.
