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.

NONE"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

The 24-year-old student, who has been suspended by Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, had been remanded since Saturday under Section 4 of the Sedition Act for his speech at a post election forum organised by Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) on May 13.

NONEFadiah (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
