Pro-Haneef protest SIMmers in Sydney
July 18, 2007
Calling for Haneef's release, the protestors, who demonstrated outside the Immigration Department in Sydney, displayed placards referring to cricketer Shane Warne's [Images] mobile phone text messaging scandal.
A court granted Haneef bail on Monday on the grounds that there was no evidence of a direct link to the attacks but the Australian government immediately revoked his visa, ensuring that he would remain in detention.
