According to documentary film-maker Chou Z Lam (right), who visited Hii last night and this morning at the hospital, Hii was admitted to Hospital Kuala Lumpur's psychiatric ward without his permission.
"After he was released by the police last night, he insisted that the police send him to hospital to have his injuries examined.
However, without Hii's consent and knowledge, said Chou, the police arranged with the hospital authorities and sent him to the psychiatric ward instead.
"The doctor rejected my demand to have him discharged on the grounds that I'm not his family member.
Chou said Hii (left, in yellow) was calm when he met him last night and this morning.
"He complained that other patients had spat on his injuries, saying that it would cure them. The hospital did not treat his injuries properly.
"I'm worried about his situation. His mobile phone has been taken away. What happens if he is hurt by other patients? Who should be responsible?" Chow asked.
Arrested three times
Hii was first arrested one day before the Bersih 2.0 rally for holding a one-man protest in Petaling Street, and was released after being held for five days.
He then lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Commission (Suhakam), claiming that the police had slapped him nearly 10 times while he was in their custody.
Unperturbed by the arrest, the "Uncle Bersih", as netizens call him after a YouTube video of him being arrested received hundreds of thousands of views, repeated the stunt at the entrance of the Pudu LRT station yesterday morning, resulting in his second arrest.
His third arrest took place soon after he was released.
According to Hii, he was arrested around 1pm while waiting at a bus stop with his self-made Bersih 2.0 signboard.
Hii accused the police of pushing him to the ground during the arrest, causing him to suffer injuries on various parts of his body.
The Sarawak activist had contested in the 2011 Sarawak state election as an Independent but lost his deposit.
The attending doctor eventually agreed to discharge him on the condition that one of his family members comes to the hospital to sign the relevant documentation.
Chou said Hii's wife will fly to Kuala Lumpur tonight from Sibu to attend to the necessary paperwork.
