KUALA LUMPUR, March 28, 2015:

National Laureate Datuk A Samad Said, or commonly known as Pak Samad, when contacted by The Rakyat Post, denied rumours of him being arrested. “I am at home right now. I am not sure whether the police had given orders to arrest me earlier, but they missed me because I went back home early,” said Pak Samad. Earlier, controversial cartoonist Zunar tweeted that Pak Samad was arrested outside Pertama Complex in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. This then sparked confusion, as no one at the site of the KitaLawan rally saw or heard anything of the kind. PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar had also tweeted about the arrest, condemning it. However, she later deleted her tweet after sharing a tweet by Bersih 2.0 denying the arrest, citing the coalition’s president Maria Chin Abdullah as having verified that Pak Samad had not been arrested. The tweets by Zunar and Nurul Izzah, however, had created a short frenzy on the Internet, with many asking if it did happen. Nurul Izzah’s tweets, although deleted, had been retweeted prior to her removing it.fasfdThe KitaLawan rally currently taking place saw protesters gathered at three checkpoints before marching to the Sogo Shopping Complex and later to KLCC. However, when they arrived near KLCC, police had barricaded the road outside the Public Bank building opposite KLCC. After negotiation, the police allowed the protesters to be in the area for 45 minutes. However, they were not allowed to cross the barricade to get near KLCC.
