Seven policemen visited the home of Malaysia’s most famous blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin early this morning and seized his laptop. The editor of Malaysia-Today is believed to be probed due to his recent article on Altantuya, which incurred the wrath of Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. (malaysiakini)
They interrogated him for 2 hours. Police told him that he was investigated under the Sedition Act. (Update: He is also being dragged to the police station for discussing the case – Alamak, every kopi-tiam is discussing the case).
Raja Petra is expected to report to the Bukit Aman police headquarters at 11am tomorrow (It seems he is over there now – 4pm! He left the station at 6.30pm). I wonder, what next?
WHAT KIND OF PRESENT IS THIS TO THE NATION ON PRESS FREEDOM MONTH !?@#$%
Keep close watch. Keep your fingers cross. For those who pray, pray for Raja Petra, though I am sure the man is a pro at handling this sort of thing. We are with you, nonetheless.
