After countless of press statements and candle light vigils by various organizations, the six civilians, or also known as “EO6”, have still not been released by the authorities, and to this very day, are detained in the Royal Malaysia Police headquaters in Bukit Aman.

The forum also seeks to further provide a greater emphasize on the issue of detaining individuals without trial.
