When an accused should be released on bail


It was recently reported that Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) activist Khalid Ismath was slapped with 11 charges under the Communications and Multimedia Act (CMA) and three under the Sedition Act - a total of 14 charges in relation to a Facebook posting he made recently.

Even more worrying was that Khalid was not granted bail by the Johor Baru Sessions Court, which means he will remain in detention until his trial.
