Police have arrested Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah and the electoral watchdog’s secretariat secretary Mandeep Singh.
Earlier, a police team from Bukit Aman as well as officers from the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SMM) raided the Bersih office in Petaling Jaya at about 3pm.
A tweet by Bersih said the police seized 10 computers, two mobile phones, and documents related to their payroll and bank accounts during the two-hour raid.
The electoral watchdog is being investigated under Section 124C of the Penal Code, which is related to attempts to carry out activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy.
