PETALING JAYA: Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar (pic) will be detained overnight at the Jinjang police station for an allegedly seditious remark she made in Parliament.

The remand hearing for the PKR vice-president will take place at 10am on Tuesday.

Soon after she was arrested, an image of Nurul Izzah waving to supporters from the fifth floor of the Dang Wangi police station was posted on her Facebook page as well as an image of her hugging her children.

Nurul Izzah was arrested under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act for allegedly making the remark while delivering a speech in Parliament on behalf of her father, jailed Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, last Tuesday.

The PKR vice-president was detained at the Dang Wangi police station on Monday at 3.30pm after giving her statement on the March 7 “Kita Lawan” rally.
