Manoharan now a free man

SHAH ALAM: Former Internal Security Act (ISA) detainee and Hindraf lawyer M. 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Khalid Abu Bakar said he was informed by the Home Ministry that all the conditions for Manoharan’s release have been withdrawn.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 Universiti Teknologi Mara here yesterday.

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.
