*Last Friday (2/12/2005) evening, at around 6pm, our singer-songwriter/busker friend Meor was arrested at Central Market. Meor was reportedly manhandled during his arrest while he was busking and was locked-up. Due to the technicality of an arrest on a Friday evening, he had to stay in jail over the weekend.
We were alerted by poet-artist Rahmat Haron on Friday via SMS:
Meor kena tahan operasi random pembersihan ****** ******, minta tolong raise fund untuk bail out. Dia ditahan sewaktu busking. Tq.
We deployed a donation appeal with Rahmat for Meor's bail over the weekend and successfully raised enough funds for it. Thank you all for your concerns and contributions.
