‘Superman’ Hew arrested by police, allegedly for making seditious remarks

KUALA LUMPUR: Hew Kuan Yew (pic) has been detained by the police for allegedly making seditious remarks during the GE15 campaign period.

In a Facebook post, Hew, who is popularly known as “Superman”, said police arrived at his doorstep at about 7.30pm on Wednesday (Nov 23) to take him to Raub.

Chow Yu Hui, who won the Raub seat in GE15, confirmed that Hew had been arrested at his Kuala Lumpur house.

Hew had allegedly made the remarks during the “election eve” ceramah in Melaka last week.

Three Melaka DAP elected representatives – incoming Kota Melaka MP Khoo Poay Tiong, Kota Laksamana state assemblyman Low Chee Leong and Kesidang state assemblyman Seah Shoo Chin – were summoned by the police Wednesday afternoon to assist the investigation. – Sin Chew Daily/ANN
