Dear Sir,

Re: PKR staff held incommunicado and at great risk of being tortured

We are writing to express our deepest concerns over the abduction of a PKR staff, Nathaniel Tan, by the police. Tan is being held incommunicado and is at great risk of being tortured.

At about 4.45 pm (13 July 2007), a PKR information bureau staff, Nathaniel Tan, was taken for questioning by three plainclothes police officers. The policemen, believed to be from the Special Branch, were said to have requested for Tan to follow them to the Bukit Aman police headquarters for questioning and did not provide any reasons as to why Tan was asked to follow them.

As of 7.30 pm (13 July 2007), the whereabouts of Tan is still unknown while the police have denied that Tan had been detained in Bukit Aman.

We urge the police to reveal the whereabouts of Tan and to demand for his release immediately.

Yours sincerely,
