KUALA LUMPUR: Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos was released on police bail after his remand ended on Tuesday.
He walked out of the Ampang Jaya police headquarters at about noon and was greeted by a group of Red Shirts members.
The Sungai Besar Umno chief was detained at about 1.30am on Saturday at a hotel and was remanded for four days to facilitate investigations into a fracas between police and the Red Shirts group at a shopping mall in Ampang on Nov 13.
In the incident, Jamal claimed that a policeman had punched him but he later claimed that it was Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin’s men who hurt him which left him with a bloodied nose.
Jamal was among several opposition politicians, activists and student leaders who were arrested in a pre-Bersih 5.0 swoop by police on Friday and Saturday.
Among those detained was Bersih 2.0 chair Maria Chin Abdullah who has been detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma).
