Syed Hamid said the police had detained Tan because they had received information that her life was being threatened and there might be possible injury to her and the police wanted to get to the bottom of it.
see - if you threaten Lulu's life, the police will have to detain Lulu
Syed Hamid said the police thought it was best to get first-hand information from Tan and thus took her in under the ISA and released her a day later after they got the necessary information and found no reason to hold her.
and then, they won't let Lulu go home. They hold Lulu under ISA and they'll keep Lulu overnight to get necessary information from Lulu about whatever that caused people to threaten Lulu's life.
“I don’t think we are being unfair or that we mistreated her in any way. We acted professionally and after a day released her,”
and then they'll claim that they weren't unfair to Lulu or mistreated Lulu in any way though they come to Lulu's house, tell her she's arrested under the no questions asked ISA and later spirit Lulu off to an unknown police station. Yup! no unfairness, no mistreatment.
Asked why the police did not just ask Tan to come in for questioning instead of arresting her, Syed Hamid said it was always difficult when it came to the police when dealing with reporters.
Syed Hamid would probably say the same thing about bloggers too. So, maklumlah, they'd extend protection to Lulu via the ISA.
so please folks, no death threats, no bunuh dia to Lulu, kay?
and for good measure a "ptui!" to Syed Hamid for the incredulous statements he made.
