Cops want remand for Ambiga, Rafizi to be arrested
A remand hearing is due to be held at the Jinjang police detention centre, where DAP national organising secretary Anthony Loke and PSM secretary-general Arutchelvan will also know if they will be remanded.
The duo were detained overnight at the detention centre while Ambiga was held overnight at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters.
They were taken in last night for their involvement in yesterday's anti-GST protest.
A team of lawyers entered the detention centre around 11.10am for the hearing while Ambiga arrived in a police van at about 11.50am.
She appeared in good spirits, smiling and waving at the media, as the vehicle entered the detention centre.
Also spotted in the vehicle is PAS central committee member Hatta Ramli who surrendered earlier today, on police request.
Meanwhile, PKR vice president Rafizi Ramli said he has been summoned by police to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters and expects to be arrested.
"Most probably (I) will be detained like the others," he said in a Whatsapp message.

The multiple arrests following the peaceful May Day rally yesterday in Kuala Lumpur have sparked an outcry from civil society, calling it an abuse of police powers.
