They are expected to be charged over their alleged involvement in the Bersih 2.0 rally and for being involved in subversive activities.

PETALING JAYA: Recently released six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) leaders are expected to face fresh charges at the Butterworth Sessions Court tomorrow.
While it is unclear what the charges would be, party leaders speculate that the case to be preferred against the six would be related to the July 9 Bersih 2.0 rally and for allegedly being involved in subversive activities.
“I believe that they would be charged for Bersih related charges – over their alleged association with an illegal association under the Societies Act and for leafleting Bersih agenda,” PSM secretary-general S Arutchelvan told FMT.
The six – Sungai Siput MP Dr D Michael Jeyakumar, PSM deputy chairman M Sarasvathy, central committee members Choo Chon Kai and , M Sukumaran, youth chief R Saratbabu and Sungai Siput branch secretary A Letchumanan – were released from the Emergency Ordinance last Friday after being detained for 28 days.
They were arrested in Kepala Batas on June 26 while embarking on a PSM campaign with 24 other PSM members. The authorities later accused them of waging war against the King.
They were then released and re-arrested on July 2 under the Emergency Ordinance which allowed the police to detain suspects for up to 60 days without trial.
It was later revealed that they were detained for allegedly being “movers” for the July 9 rally organised by Bersih 2.0.
The 24 PSM members who were arrested on June 26 are presently facing Bersih related charges in Butterworth Sessions Court.
Jeyakumar also confirmed with blogger Anil Netto that the six would be facing charges tomorrow.
“They want to charge us,” he was quoted by Netto as saying in his blog. “But we are not sure what the charge is going to be,” added the Sungai Siput MP.
