On 10 August 2017, the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention transmitted to the Government of Malaysia a communication concerning Adilur Rahman Khan. The Government has not replied to the communication. The Working Group notes that Mr. Khan was held during a period of approximately 14 hours at a holding facility at Kuala Lumpur international Airport. Neither of these factors prevent the Working Group from determining that Mr. Khan was deprived of his liberty.
