The good news was announced by Home Minister Hishamuddin. The three HINDRAF leaders are among the 13 detainees who would be released soon, in two or three days time, said Hishamuddin.

In the specially arranged press conference, Hishammuddin said that they would be released in the next “two or three days”.

“I will be signing the (release) papers now,” he said.

He did not give the reasons for the release of the 13 but added that they “no longer needed to be held”.

So, that would put to an end the court cases filed by the detainees, but the sedition case against Uthaya will be taking place. If convicted, he will be jailed.

This means Manoharan won’t quit his assemblyman post, and the Free Manoharan campaign can be stopped.
