Police Search ARRC Office in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Dec. 2—At first, three police men in uniform came to
the second floor of the building in Jalan Hang Kasturi, Kuala Lumpur,
and checked IDs from the refugees who stay in the ARRC refugee
shelter for medical treatments at 4.16 PM on Tuesday, 2nd December.
Later, another police joined in the searching. While the police men
were trying to arrest 30 refugees, the leaders in the office intensely
requested the police not to arrest the HIV and TB infected refugees as
well as women and children. The police then took 890 RM from ARRC
and then left the building at 4.56 PM. All refugees, including women
and children, were very much fear of the police searching.
