Media statement by Teo Nie Ching in Serdang on Friday, 7th October 2011:
I express regret and vent my anger towards the police force for gross abuse of public funds in their harsh treatment of the peaceful demonstrators in the Bersih 2.0 rally.
Malaysians from all strata of society gathered together to demand for clean and fair elections but they were subjected to brutal treatment by the police and FRU who not only fired a total of 262 teargas canisters at them but also arrested 1,509 protestors, committing gross injustice in the process.
"Until today, there has been no reports of damage to public facilities or private property by the demonstrators, therefore there was absolutely no need for the police to use teargas and water cannons against ordinary citizens, or treat them as if they were terrorists. The police even fired into the hospital compound!"
Although the police repeatedly announced a decline in crime rates, the incidence of crime and public safety are still major areas of concern for many people.
