Malaysia lifts restrictions on Hindraf lawyer

india Updated: Oct 04, 2009 22:19 IST

Malaysia has lifted curbs on the activities of a prominent Hindraf lawyer M Manoharan, who was earlier detained under the draconian Internal Security Act.

Former ISA detainee and Hindraf lawyer Manoharan is completely free of the restrictions placed on his release.

Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said he was informed by the Home Ministry that all the conditions for Manoharan's release have been withdrawn.

No action would be taken against Manoharan when he returned (from Tanzania), DCP Khalid told reporters after officiating at a crime prevention programme at University Technology Mara here yesterday, the Staronline reported.

He was asked to comment on the status of Manoharan, who is also Kota Alam Shah assemblyman.

When contacted, Manoharan’s wife S Pushpaneela said her husband received a letter from the Home Minister on the day of his departure for Tanzania last Wednesday, saying he was free from the restriction order.
