CLM Chief Physician Dato’ Chris Leong (“DCL”) and their 19 apprentices (including 1 from Belgium and 3 from Hong Kong) have been arrested in Palembang, Indonesia since 9 January 2019. They are still being detained in Palembang Prisons there until today. Based on the information from the press, DCL who is publicly known as “Master Chris Leong” and 19 others are accused of violating tourist visa and/or conducting illegal commercial activities in Palembang. All of them deny such wrong doings, and from the legal stand point, all accused are innocent until proven guilty.
Until today, we have not been notified of any formal charges pressed against DCL and 19 others. We were made to understand that the maximum duration for any persons being held in detention centres without any trial there is 40 days, which fell on 17 February 2019. Unfortunately, there is no news on the release nor any formal charges from the Indonesian authorities now.
We, the company, and all parents of the detained persons, are totally devastated and disheartened with the lack of actions to secure their immediate release
We appeal for our Malaysian Government utmost attention to assist to speed up the release of our citizens and their associates with a prompt extradiction process and clear the whole episodes which could be labelled as only a misunderstanding at best.
We respectfully seek your urgent attention to mobilise the Embassy and Consulate office in Indonesia to secure the release of the Malaysians, like how we did for the Malaysians detained in Banteay Meanchey, Cambodia.
