A coalition of rights groups has urged Malaysia to release 68 Burmese pro-democracy activists arrested this month outside Burma's embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
The Asia-Pacific Solidarity Coalition says the arrest and continued detention of the activists is a "grave matter."
The coalition says the activists could be charged with unlawful assembly, as well as illegal immigration violations if they are undocumented.
The activists were arrested after gathering on June 16th in a symbolic celebration of the 60th birthday of Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate has spent most of the past 16 years under house arrest in Burma.
Authorities say the demonstrators were arrested for assembling without permission outside Burma's embassy in the Malaysian capital.
