Ketua AMK Ketereh Mohd Sukirman Mustafa memberitahu Malaysiakini, beberapa orang anggota parti dan orang awam membuat laporan polis berhubung kejadian itu pada 16 Mei.
Menurut Sukirman, pegawai SPR hadir bersama anggota polis dan mendakwa memperolehi arahan dari pegawai atasan untuk berbuat demikian, walau peraturan pilihan raya menetapkan bahawa beg kertas undi hanya boleh dibukan dengan perintah Mahkamah Tinggi.
Bagaimanapun, pegawai yang membuka materi keselamatan di beg berkenaan tidak mengeluarkan apa-apa daripada beg yang disimpan di pejabat Majlis Daerah Ketereh.
“Mereka hanya membuka beg dan menyelongkar sedikit, tapi tidak mengeluarkan apa-apa,” kata Sukirman.
Katanya cabang PKR di situ dimaklumkan oleh seorang individu yang memberitahu bahawa beg tersebut dibuka oleh pegawai SPR pada kira-kira jam 11 pagi pada 7 Mei.
Sukirman berkata anggota PKR merakam gambar pegawai SPR tersebut yang membuka beg berkenaan dan kini menunggu penjelasan mengenai perkara itu daripada SPR.
Parti berkenaan kini menimbang untuk mengemukakan kes tersebut ke mahkamah.-malaysiakini
EC officers in Ketereh opened ballot bags, says PKR...
Election Commission (EC) officers are said to have opened up ballot bags stored in a municipal council office in Ketereh, Kelantan, on May 7 without an order from the High Court.
Ketereh PKR Youth chief Mohd Sukirman Mustafa told Malaysiakini that some of his party members and members of the public lodged police reports on the matter on May 16.
The EC officers, according to Sukirman, had come with the presence of police and claimed to have obtained instructions from their superiors to do so, even though election regulations stipulate that ballot bags can only be opened with a High Court order.
However, the officers who cut the safety seals on the ballot bags, did not remove anything from the bags kept in a room in the Ketereh Municipal Council.
PKR has evidence in the form of pictures
"They merely opened the bags and ransacked them a little, though they did not take anything away from them," Sukirman said.
He said the PKR branch there was notified by a concerned citizen, who told them about the bags being opened by EC officers about 11am on May 7.
Sukirman said PKR members captured pictures of an EC officer opening the ballot bags and were now awaiting an explanation on the matter from the EC.
However, he added, the party would consider taking this matter to court to challenge the authority of EC officers to open sealed ballot bags.
Regulation 26 of the Election Regulations Act 1958 states that ballot bags can only have their safety seals opened on an order issued by the High Court.-malaysiakini
No pillow or blanket for Adam to sleep...
Adam Adli Abdul Halim has been subjected to interrogation for two days in a row and was not even given a pillow or a blanket to sleep, said lawyer Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, who visited student activist today.
Fadiah who met Adam Adli with his father, Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid, at the Jinjang police detention centre at 1.30pm today, had to wait a long time before they could see him.
"After waiting for some time, his father and I were allowed to meet Adam. Bersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan, who was also present, was not allowed to see him.
"Halim and I were then led into a room where we met Adam Adli, who was behind a glass panel. We had difficulty communicating with him and for me, being his lawyer, it was difficult to ask for instructions," Fadiah said.
The lawyer said Adam told her that he was subject to continuous interrogation from 10am to 6pm on Sunday and Monday, with the police asking him the same questions over and over again.
In between the interrogations, Adam said, there were short breaks.
However, Fadiah said Adam chose to remain quiet, stopped answering the repetitive questions and told the interrogating officer to watch the video recording of his speech.
No hint whether remand will end on Thursday
Fadiah (right) said the meeting lasted less than 30 minutes and that she does not know whether the police will apply to extend Adam Adli's five-day remand order, which expires on Thursday.
"However, we are glad to see that he is quite well," the lawyer added.
A candlelight vigil in support of Adam has been held outside the Jinjang police detention centre for the past two nights, and also in front of Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang last night.
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak promised last year to repeal the Sedition Act 1948 and replace it with a National Harmony Act.
Despite such promises, the sedition law is still being used against individuals such as Adam Adli. Others also facing sedition charges are DAP chairperson Karpal Singh and Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leader P Uthayakumar.-malaysiakini
