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).

The controversial article “Lets send Altantuya’s murderers to hell“, prompted Najib to respond in an open letter to the editor, which was duly and categorically replied to by Raja Petra himself.

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.

    I think this is going to be another round of warfare against bloggers.
    They won’t dare do anything to RPK. Can’t be sure of other bloggers.

    Take good care of yourself Susan.

    Message to PDRM – you have a job to do, but be sure to exercise fairness and integrity. The days of UMNO/Barisan Nasional holding the majority in Parliament are numbered. The necessary purge of the PDRM leadership when PR takes over is not going to be pretty.

  3. Rts says:

    I belive the police should leave Raja Petra alone, and they should round up all the crminals (snatch thieves, murderers, robbers, illegals etc) and the corrupted VIPs and let the Malaysians live peacefully. If Najib and his wife have nothing to do with Altantuya’s case, why must they be worried? Or alternatively, Najib and wife can sue RYP for compensation and let the civil court decide the right and wrong. So why trouble the police? The RAKYAT is puzzled.

  4. headache says:

    Looks like another case of abuse of power.

    RPK’s article can only lead to either a defamation suit or contempt of court.

    What sedition? There is no insult of royalty, Islam, etc (the usual stuff).

    Guess it is tangkap dulu, cari cause later.

    Thought the tsunami has changed things…apparently it still has yet to sweep thro PDRM.

    Times like this, it is highly tempting to wish for a change – thro froggies. Really tiring.

  5. fred says:

    PDRM, why dont you go seek out those who kidnap and abuse our woman and children first. Or sort out our high crime rate? i guess your priority is in ISA and sedition. I guess now the priority will be opposition MPs.

    If ii were a thief/rapist/child molester/robber/corrupted politician, this would be high time to commit more real CRIME, as PDRM is, as usual, busy elsewhere.

  6. Hunk says:

    This is really ABUSE OF POWER. The article itself (by RPK) by law, will be tantamount to defamation that was uttered with malicious intent IF unfounded.

    This seems to be criminal instituted intimidation by the Polis Raja Malaysia against Raja Petra Kamarudin. I cannot see any criminal charges, but the police action can be clearly seen to intimidate and dig out criminal elements by certain powerful person/s in the possession of RPK and his associates.

  7. Hunk says:

    Hey Susan, are you moderating my comments? Just asking and wonder……..

  8. Robert Teh says:

    I really don’t get it – First, the authorities allow him to speak his mind “live” on national TV; the next thing you know, they are sending the polis to investigate him!

    This makes me believe the authorities are suffering from a “Dr. Jackel and Mr. Hyde” syndrome!

    Come on, lah! Want to be percieved as a liberal govt., be liberal lah! Stop being wishy-washy, for God’s sake!

  9. Joyce says:

    Those of you who are pointing fingers at the PDRM either seem not to undertsand certain things or you choose otherwise. There is nothing called PDRM, we only have UMNO Matrempits called Police (i.e PDRM) for some of you. They are robots doing their “job” at the behest of their masters and there is nothing else they can do. Point your gun at the warlords who sent them.

  10. Hunk says:

    In the absence of my physical presence to lent support for Raja Petra, I fully and ultimately stand by Raja Petra for his bravery that might lead to discovery of crucial elements subdued by the people who walks in the Corridors of Power.

    Anwar and Kit siang must act on behalf of RPK.

  11. woodyooi says:

    Susan,

    Police always said “Take cukup kakitangan”

    “Sending 7 cops there ?!” to arrest an unarmed man with just a Laptop ?!

    What happened in Sharlini case, if they were putting that many resources / efficiency to work, probably she is found already,,

    Unbelievable..

    Woody.

  12. Najis says:

    99.999% of Malaysians are very angry at the murder of Altantuya. The people of Malaysia and the victim’s family deserve to know the truth.

  13. merlin2001 says:

    What pete wrote is nothing new. Why pick on him alone? The PDRM should be fair and also take on all other bloggers and commenters like me
    who is also of the opinion that all is not right at the ongoing trial.
    Is it so wrong to want to get at the truth? One day your children may also be victims of a blantant wrong Mr. IGP. So what will you do when you are
    retired and pose no influence to a sham?
    Please sir do the right thing to serve KING and COUNTRY and stop harrasing RPK. You can also ask TDM if he thinks the DPM is completely innocent?

  14. bamboo river says:

    Observing RPK’s photo. I concured RPK is not the usual typical guy you can mess with.
    His eyebrows and sharp eyes is a sign of a fighter and will fight to the end. Sure looks ‘GARANG’
    But on the lighter side of him is his long ear depicts compassion and fairness.And he must have a great sense of humuor by looking at his lips.The best part that I can come at if RPK is reading this…KEEP your head Bald!
    This is good for you.

    I am not worried about RPK, I am more worried for whoever engages him. Can they take the HEAT?
    I am not a face reader but my late grandma did taught me a few things about face reading.

  15. ghenjis khan says:

    let us all pray that God protects those who seek to put things in their proper places …… that’s justice !

    and Raja Petra Kamaruddin has a role to play and he is trying very hard to put things in their proper places ….

    these minor hiccups are not more than trials from high up above ….

    He that that’s always create things in their proper places !

  16. Hunk says:

    Haha, Bamboo, you wrote [extraxt]

    “I am not worried about RPK, I am more worried for whoever engages him. Can they take the HEAT?”

    U mean like John Rambo? Whatever RPK is “made” of, we must unconditionally give unwavering and unflinching support.

  17. Edwin SJ Ng PJK says:

    RPK’s comments are the opinions of all fair minded Malaysians. It’s common sense to draw the conclusions that here is significant interference in the judiciary system for the trail to go it is going.

    The questions RPK asked are the same questions people in the streets are asking. So RPK is certainly safe. Sedition is a very subjective charge and I do not think PDRM can frame one that is chargeable……except to consider him a nuisance to UMNO and lock him uo under ISA.

    Then, we will have no recourse to help him except through mass protest. We must all be willing to make sacrifices for RPK and be willing to join him for a stint in Kamunting. In this case, only critical mass can cause the government to be cautious…..the question is, “Are we ready to take such a stand ?”.

    I am not a ‘blogger’, but I read the blogs daily. Still I am willing to throw in my lot behind RPK.

    Edwin.

  18. essdee says:

    What sedition. This to me is an abuse of power by the dpm to use the police for his personal matter. He shoild just file a defamation summons against Raja Petra and let the courts decide.

  19. kwai lan says:

    Gestapo state ah ?

    If RPK had defamed Najis..then by all means..sue him in your PERSONAL capacity..dun abuse power by using Police n all la…

    If RPK is in contempt of court..charge him in court la…dun la like tat…no good, not nice..Y BN never learn one huh ? after tsunami oso like tat one ??

  20. sandyow says:

    it just goes to show that bloggers just have to mind what they say online. Judging from the numerous political blogs, you cant really diffreentiate what’s right or wrong. Heck nobody knows! Most of the things written online cant really be traced where the sources come from, it could be just personal opinions, rumours, lies? So i think it’s better to get our facts right before posting anything online.

  21. puakangkang says:

    wooowww…kes rogol naik 65.8% dan kes pecah rumah naik 160% tapi PDRM pula sibuk nak mencari orang yang menulis artikel dan bukan nya perompak atau penyangak. Macam mana peratusan jenayah tak naik kalau polis jadi “budak suruhan ” orang atasan.

  22. Ahila says:

    Siapa makan cili dia rasa pedasnya ! Kalau tak buat tak payahlah risau. Biar orang mengata. Ini sampai hantar 7 org….utk siasat seorang. PDRM too free kot? Macam macam crimes in our country…. go and do your duty for the rakyat PDRM ! Keep the public safe in this country. Ini asyik tabik tuan BN dan main ‘yes master yes master’ to politicians only.
    Like my fellow friends who have voiced above….I am also behind RPK.
    Biar Tuhan Menentukan Hukuman bagi Para Pembunuh ALtantuya !!!
    However….we Malaysian deserve to know the truth in this case. Not just who murdered her but WHO was behind the murder too !!!

    Has anyone noticed, how conveniently Pak Lah slipped away to do his Umrah in Mecca. Who’s the acting PM now ?

  26. Ignatius Ooi says:

    The posting by RPK have got the PDRM involved and the pertinent
    question to ask is why is the PDRM getting involved in blogs postings
    about the C4 murder of altantuya? Is the PDRM paid by the rakyat,
    biased to such an extent that they are bound or beholden to protect
    those that walk the corridors of power? These people who are supposedly
    elected to served the rakyat, but instead deviate to serve thier own
    pocket. They will employ all means to silence those that are speaking-up,
    including the use of C4 so that the poor mongolian girl who knew too
    much will never be able to expose the french “war toys” and its money
    trail.
    Malaysians, wake up and ask yourself whether any deal involving
    Government to Government negotiations needs to have an “agent”
    earning commissions in between and mind you, in billions too. Ask
    yourself whether this is logical or is there more to it that meets the eye?
    What RPK posted has nothing in terms of sedition but the aggrieved
    party ( or guilty party?) can certainly seek redress in a court of law in
    a civil suit. Certainly civil suit does not involved the PDRM. With the
    police appearing into the picture it becomes “criminal intimidation.
    Very sad indeed that Malaysia is still like Zimbawe and it is about time
    we unite together to call for CHANGE. People’s Power united together
    will work miracles.

  27. Free Spirit says:

    At the end of the day, Raja Petra is not above the law just because he is Malaysia’s most famous blogger. If he publishes articles that slander, libel or defame individuals without proof he should face the consequences. Hearsay, innuendos, conjecture, theories and “leaked information” from disgruntled employees, staff or people with hidden agendas do not constitute proof.

    The system may be flawed but it’s the only one we have. Otherwise I might just as well steal from my boss just because he did not give me a raise which I deserve. Moral of it all? “Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right”

  28. ah long says:

    Kwai Lan….you are 100% correct, correct, correct.

    Want to sue botak for defamation, then sue lah. Go and sue him through the normal channels, don’t even think of using the ISA back door.

    Where is the justification for the police to raid his property and question him on “possible” defamation claims. He has the right to remain silent. He has to be trial by a court not by a VIP mere whim.

    Talk about the evils of “trial by the public”, this is even worst. Sentenced by 1 man without trial. Sounds like one and looks like one.

    One minute the DPM say “innocent till proven guilty” so don’t simply accuse others.

    Next minute “guilty until proven innocent” raid his home, ISA interview tomorrow and possible ISA jail. If botak is any lesser person, I bet you he already sharing accomodation with the Hindraf 5.

    I don’t think they have the balls to throw botak into jail. It might trigger off another Reformisi protest. And this time the Malays will join in.

  29. Anbuchuder S.R says:

    Well, this was brave move and much awaited one. I wish all Malaysians are open to changes and celebrate dignity, honesty and noble heart for appreciating humankind. Give fair trial for justice and punish those who tarnished humanity image of Malaysians for personal greed.

    My dear Malaysians please remember, world are not permanent place top play politics and being opportunists..its time to regard god As TRUE and punish those who do NOT have noble heart while being elected as people representative to safe country and nations.

  30. kl says:

    it’s very selective one la this law of ours – it only applies to certain people. Fly about on a police helicopter for ‘personal’ reasons after you have been doing it for donkey years – when u r out of favour, you are suddenly abusing power. When u r in favour, u can gallivant about in private jets fully paid for by the rakyat to campaign around the country, you can seemingly direct our glorious PDRM to investigate people who has ‘irritated’ you.

    Great la, our country.

  31. Scott Thong says:

    Malaysia really is a nation with First World facilities but Third World mentality… Where the polcie can arrest you, beat you up and lock you up for having a face they dislike and then think of how to pin a crime on you later.

  32. Scott Thong says:

    Susan and all… Can they arrest all of us if every one of us makes the same ‘baseless and slanderous’ accusations as RPK is claimed to have? Can they sue every single one of us for libel if we repost the remarks on our own blogs?

  35. Malaysian says:

    This reaffirms the rakyat belief that voting opposition last GE was the right choice. Wanna hold ceramah, get hauled up for criminal conduct. Do a little blog, which really, the majority of the rakyat does not read, get hauled up for sedition. Rakyat says enough! why police always at the personal disposal of VIPs? You want political mileage, better you hire a PR expert and come up with some sensible press statements. Hauling RPK ass in for questioning only makes it look like a big old cover up. Wanna score points with rakyat, better you ask the police to go look for Nini, or any of the lost children out there. You cannot control the press (print, online, whatever) anymore. May as well learn how to use the press to your advantage. Even TDM is blogging today. So for those who don’t know how to manage this age of information – sorry lah, you won’t go far, politically or in any other arena.

    Mayday!Mayday!Mayday – RPK is in trouble. Save him. Save the bloggers too.

  39. Antares says:

    I’m vicariously annoyed that the gormless police have confiscated RPK’s laptop and server. It’s a crime as serious as kidnapping somebody’s wife or child! These days most of us have grown pretty attached to our personal computers which have become pivotal to our daily lives. To take away somebody’s laptop is worse than horse-stealing in cowboy days. However, RPK thrives on controversy and is such a public figure he must know the Umno dickheads are desperately trying to find ways to silence him. In his shoes I would have several harddrives tucked in safe places and updated daily against such an occurrence. Stupid cops. In the digital age you can’t suppress information. Take down a website and 100 mirror sites will sprout within an hour! RPK, you know we are all behind you and will never again allow those Barisan Nazional goons to intimidate us through their control of the police.

He had publicly questioned the Attorney General’s handling of a statutory rape case involving a government minister and a 15-year-old girl. In imposing the sentence, Appeal Court judge Gopal Sri Ram was quoted as stating, “it is time the court send a clear message that it cannot to tolerate any attack on the judiciary”.

Now if any of us still have doubts about BN’s sincerely, it is now crystal clear that we don’t have to wait till next GE to chuck them out of power! LET’S ALL ENCOURAGE AND SUPPORT ANWAR’S MOVE TO INDUCE AT LEAST 30 BN MPs to defect and bring down this hated, hated, very much despised evil govt and send it to the dustbins of history!!!!

    Just the facts for PDRM, just got these from the newspapers, not even from RPK:
    – Razak Baginda & 2 cops being charged are the close associate & bodyguards of DPM
    – the 2 cops have no reason to kill Altantuya, and can only take orders from their ‘reporting line’
    – C4 is a military explosive, not a civilian one, not even PDRM can get it easily, no?

    MR.C4 can ill afford to get himself involve in any court case at this stage, otherwise everything that he try so hard to conceal will be dredge out into the open.

    Only way out is ISA! Which is not up to him but Bodohwi and I don’t think Bodohwi’s stupid enough to stick his neck out for someone who’s been trying all these while to elbow him out.

    On the other hand Bodohwi need to get along with his Pigface deputy to put up a wayang kulit for show as his own political survival depend on it.

    At first they use a policewoman to lockup Ms.Altantuya; then they used 2 policeman to killed & C4 her. Now, I started to worry, the police how to do to Raja Petra; hope that he will be OK.

  61. Minder says:

    According to the Malaysian Bar Council website, RPK is being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998. The police officers who visited his home this morning are from the Federal Commercial Crimes Investigations Department (CCID).

    Quote :

    It is learnt that the CCID officers would be investigating certain allegations made in the article that were deemed false and defamatory.

    Under Section 233 of the Act:

    1) A person who

    a) by means of any network facilities or network service or applications service knowingly —

    (i) makes, creates or solicits; and

    (ii) initiates the transmission of,

    any comment, request, suggestion or other communication which is obscene, indecent, false, menacing or offensive in character with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass another person; or

    b) initiates a communication using any applications service, whether continuously, repeatedly or otherwise, during which communication may or may not ensue, with or without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any person at any number or electronic address,

    commits an offence.

    2) A person who knowingly

    (a) by means of a network service or applications service provides any obscene communication for commercial purposes to any person; or

    (b) permits a network service or applications service under the person ‘s control to be used for an activity described in paragraph (a),

    commits an offence.

    (3) A person who commits an offence under this section shall, on conviction,be liable to a fine not exceeding fifty thousand ringgit or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year or to both and shall also be liable to a further fine of one thousand ringgit for every day during which the offence is continued after conviction.

    Unquote

    My reading of this section is that they would first have to prove that RPK’s article is “obscene, indecent, false, menacing or offensive in character” if they’re to get anywhere. The first and last 2 definitions are rather subjective in nature, while the term in the middle should yield extremely interesting results in court should RPK be formally charged.

    This is such high profile news that no doubt the whole country will wait to see what develops from this. And if anything adverse should befall RPK, BN will only be digging themselves deeper into the hole that they’re already in. Haven’t they just witnessed People’s Power through the ballot box? Will they ever learn? I guess not, which is all the better for DSAI and the Govt-in-Waiting.

    Hey Pete, we’re all rooting for you.

    PDRM is totally hopeless… shame on you for not upholding justice as you should be.

    You will be more hatred from public for not solving crimes but instead to help to create more crimes.

    When Mahathir said BN time is going to running out soon, he really sees what will happen soon. Jangan engkau PDRM pandai penyapu orang kenamaan sahaja. Bila BN dah tumpas, baru engkau tahu yang engkau akan kena BAD KARMA yang sama juga (Di pecat jawatan dan disoal siasat di makamah lagi pun keluarga mu akan mengalami kesusahan juga). This is a serious mistakes to become the Big Bullies to people who uphold justice for all.

    To BN and PDRM, you do more mistakes, you will DIE more faster…and this is the choice that you all have made. Trully pathetics..SINFUL

    Dear PDRM

    RPK is one of the most celebrated son of Malaysia.

    You are forewarn not to damage not even a single shred of RPK hair, or

    else, many people here will not hesitate to shallow each and every one of

    you alive.

    The higher-ups of the PDRM should be sacked an be replaced with foreigners.

    Dear Raja Petra,

    If PRDM… I actually meant PRDMr (not PDRM)… as much as ruffle a single strand of your hair, I promise that I will comb it back nicely for you.This is how much I respect you…truly. Not to worry-lah.

  68. Ong Ting Ting says:

    What is this? The minute PhackLah goes out of the country some sandiwara is being played.

    Comelah, PDRM be independant and let Najib sue Pete if he slanders.

    If Najib cannot do that, then keep quiet.

    The Bully Boys are at it again! Less than a week after getting thrashed on live National TV by YM Raja Petra ‘The Rock’ Kamaruddin, the Umnoputra Bully Boys unleashed their errant boys PDRM to haul up RPK and wife for questioning for sedition.

    News reports say that the interrogation has got to do with the article that appeared on Malaysia Today linking Altantunya with Najib and Rosmah. However, somehow I get the feeling it has got to do with RPK’s appearance on RTM1 last Sunday. RPK did some major collateral damage to the BN/ Umno regime in that interview. I guess it did not go down well with the archaic Umno ultras and the 4th Floor Boys.

    Nevertheless, my prayers and support is with RPK and his family. God is great! God will never forsake you for you stand on the side of Truth and Righteousness and the Truth shall set you and all who are unjustly detained free while sending the vermins who caused so much pain and suffering on His people fleeing into the Fires of Perdition.

    To all idiots like Joachim Xavier who think that it is immoral for Pakatan Rakyat to come to power tomorrow through a cross over of BN MP’s, I say to him and all the rest “Keris My Ass!”. Only when PR takes power can all the abuses and injustices be stopped. The longer the BN regime rules, things like what happened to RPK and wife will continue. More Balkis and Bunga Tanjong will continue. More injustices by the Police will go unabated. More files and evidence of corruption and malpractices will disappear!

    DSAI, Uncle Kit and Tok Guru Hadi Awang, form PR Federal Government now and stop the rot before it is too late. Pakatan Rakyat please help RPK! Hidup Malaysia!

    Murderes goes to hell. Who say this? Bible, Buddhist sutras, Confusecious(very confused people) also say this mah? What is wrong with saying that murders will be sent to HELL?

    If I say Rapist will be rotan -ed. Is this seditious?

    If I say murders and rapist will be hanged. Is this also wrong and seditious?

    You mean to say the police will come and catch me on BEHALF of all the rapist, murders, child molesters, robbers etc.???

    In the meantime, robbers, rapist, murders roam free if they are not caught?

    I think the thinking is wrong somewhere lah.

    PR leaders. Please do something to help RPK. Show the police and
    the stupid govt that they can’t bully the rakyat anymore.
    Saudara Anwar, you claimed that you can form the govt.DO IT NOW

  74. Rts says:

    The PDRM has not done anything good so far in lifting their image. Why must they follow the orders of some big sharks blindly and forget that they are the civil servants. Have they forgotten their Mission and Vision Statements, their Piagam Pelanggan, huh? Why can’t they just let Najib and his wife take up the case against RPK if they are not happy? Readers out there, do you know that the OCPD in Central Melaka, ACP Johari, kicked one of the DAP Bachang Wakil Rakyat , abused him verbally and intimidated him (reported on the Guang Ming Dailies, page A4, 3rd May 08). What kind of Police Officer is this, an Animal? If the DAP MP and Wakil Rakyat have violated the Law, charge them in court. Police officers must obey the law and respect the Human Rights. Is this guy going to please Ali Rustam in order to gain some praise because BN lost badly on the 8th Mac 08 GE? Or is he just another RACIAL EXTREMIST, trying to venge his anger on a Chinese Wakil Rakyat, in order to please his UMNO boss? Why must he set such a bad example to his subordinates and tarnished the already tainted image of PDRM? Have they never learnt a dear lesson from the case where DS Anwar I was assaulted by the IGP? It’s real sickening and disgusting. Pak Lah, you must not forget your promise and you must implement the IPCMC immediately. Syed Hamid must apologise to the Wakil Rakyat. The RAKYAT will remember all these and BN will definitely have to pay for it.

    Najib is trying hard to show he has some balls…..I think going after RPK is going to backfire on him…

    I’M SO SICK OF THIS EVIL, COMPLETELY UNETHICAL AND FASCIST UMNO AND POLICE FORCE WHICH HAVE NOT A BIT OF CONSCIENCE NOR UNDERSTANDING WHAT TRUE JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY MEANS! WHICH IS TURNING OUR COUNTRY INTO A PATHETIC NATION-STATE INDEED! PAKATAN RAKYAT, PLEASE IGNORE ALL THE FAKE LIBERAL BULLSHIT ABOUT WAITING FOR THE NEXT ELECTION, WHICH WILL BE A SHAM AND FRAUD ANYWAY; TAKE OVER AND SAVE US, THE RAKYAT FROM ALL THESE EVILNESS!

    NOOR AZA OTHMAN.

  78. God of the Mongolian says:

    This is really a shame on the part of Ma;aysia’s Police, why go after someone who isn’t even involve in the case. The one that they must go after is the Police and the one who authorise the use of C4. If Najib is the one who authorise the use of C4, shouldn’t he be the one the police should be after? If he is not the guy involve than please prove it wrong in court. I think the public is still misslead at this point in time. This is really a very serious crime for using C4 to blow up the remains of someone and RPK is right to ask those involve to be send to hell and not walking the corridor of power.

    Anyway even if Najib is not involve he can’t get the support to be our PM.
    He has no quality, he was sitting at the Education ministry for so long what had he done for Malaysia’s education? This prove his inability and poor leadership.

  79. rafiq says:

    I always beleive that we should be responsible towards our own actions. Good Example, couple of days ago a young University student was handcuffed by the police whilst taken to the police station for investigation into his alleged statement over the internet posted in one of the sites. The allegation was that he supposedly made a statment that Karpal should ‘in simple terms’ be killled for his reactions on Islam. Was it neccesary for the police to handcuff him when no crime was comitted. In the same manner Raja Petra too has said in his open letter “Lets send the Altantuyas murderer to Hell”. At least he should be thankful that the police did not handcuff him like what they did to the other ‘boy’. I think Raja is obliged to answer questions pertaining to the police charges. He is not above the law as he always says the same thing to others. So please you guys do not overreact just because he is a known blogger. What about the ordeal the university student and his poor parents when through.

    first use pdrm to interrogate. then maybe use c4 to bomb.

  81. manydot says:

    RPK, do let the BN polis break you down, HEAD UP. I support you all the way. Daulat Tuanku!!!!!

    When dpm make a phone call to the police and guess what? The whole of police force’s ball shrinked!!! Besides rasuah, Bodek and angkat bola is the best our police force is made of!!! Useless force we have here. Why not call in dpm to the police station and query him? If there is nothing burning underneath, how come there’s smoke coming out on top?

  84. merlin2001 says:

    Pete, how come you are hairless on top and has so much on your hands.
    careful, man in blue might just use tweezers to torture you by plucking each one after another until you surrender laughing and confessing to being Agong Blogger.
    Sure you can take the tweaking of arms hair. LOL.

  85. kwai lan says:

    could be a case of instructions wrongly interpreted ..N**** tell PDRM to SEDATE PKR [maybe treat PKR to a beer or 2 ] but PDRM dengar wrongly …go n charge him under SEDETION act pulak…aiii…

  86. ah Long says:

    RPK, you need a haircut. I hear Semi Value got a few spare hair toupe he want to sell. Cheap. You should consider buying one to use as a disguise so the cops can’t recognise you.

  87. bamboo river says:

    Ha,ha, ah Long & merlin 2001, RPK’s eyes is good enough to make those guys hairs STAND.
    Wait until RPK speaks, all their hairs will start to FALL OFF!

    When PR forms gov, I urge it to reward all brave bloggers for their struggle to uphold the truth. For RPK, restore what he had lost or going to lose. I admire u, RPK! And all those who write and speak the truth!

  90. ah long says:

    I think RPK is using him self as bait. Arrest him and UMNO will make him a matyr and PK will become even stronger than before.

    I think the idiots in UMNO can also see this.

  91. ah long says:

    RPK why your head so bald ah? must be rubbing it too much against the bed head too much at night.

  92. hutchrun says:

    This bald article was real good, had a good laff:

    Towering Malays and the ‘hush’ on Peace Hill

    The bottom line is, either they get off my back or they throw me in jail and throw away the key. I could not be bothered one bit what it is going to be. I am prepared for the worst. My objective is plain and simple. Altantuya’s murderers are going to be sent to hell. And I don’t mind going to hell myself to see this happen.
    http://www.malaysia-today.net/2008/content/view/6984/1/

    There must be many who are envious they can`t write as well as him.

  93. Ah Lim says:

    Very good article by RPK. This should have been written long time ago. Don’t know how those animals can still deny & say that this is bunch of rumours. The whole of Malaysia know that NTR & DR is involve ine this case. Worse still they can even have a press release to say that these are all RUMOURS.

    Malaysian are now more informed with the e media/ internet. This should be the case of ” Siapa yang makan Cili dia yang rasa pedas.” That the reason why NTR can’t take over as PM yet. the current PM is grapping NTR’s balls.

    RPK, keep it up. I’m sure you have all the moral support from bloggers across Malaysia. As you suggest : ” Lets send the Altantuya murderers to HELL”

  94. wits0 says:

    albert1951, you’re simply sour grapes when you see someone, anyone, who is clearly braver than yourself. Outside of the issue of whether that person(s) is right or wrong in doing what he or she does, i.e. It’s your own very dominant ego that impels your says and that shows through.

  95. dinobeano says:

    Hunk,

    We in PR are watching the RPK situation closely. The fact that he is represented by MP for Selayang and Lawyer, William Leong from PKR/PR is a clear sign that we are fully with him. We condenm all actions by the PDRM and their political masters to intimidate Raja Petra and others who stand up for justice and dignity of Malaysians. The PR is for freedom of the press and the protection of our fundamental rights which are guaranteed by our constitution.

    We need the support of the Malaysian public whose rights we are defending. The time has come for all us to make a stand for what is right and just. We can no longer be indifferent. When we are truly united in purpose and resolve, politicians in power will think more than twice before they resort to the arbitrary use of power. Public opinion matters. The world is watching. —Din Merican.

  96. dodgy inc says:

    I suspect albert1951 is another cybertrooper that deploys a different tactical approaches,

    He started with posting to irrelevant entries in Susan’s blog, even making horny gestures, follow by telling everyone he is to scare to post anything sensitive, and then even suggesting Susan’s life is in danger (RPK NO.2)

    Whatch out for this guy

  97. wits0 says:

    No, dodgy inc, not necessarily a Cyber Trooper.

    Albert does resemble Monsterball, an old egoistic crackpot who thinks that he should be respected simply because of his own status quo.

  98. hutchrun says:

    `an old egoistic crackpot` – cowardly runt more like with a narcissus complex.

  99. RPK; Beware, Najib or one of his cronies could again resort to the use of C4 again. For him, he or they may have the BALLS to do so!
    Once tested – proofed to be effective and successful – so, why not do it again!
    The courts will, nevertheless, eventually find them NOT GUILTY but we Malaysians may then have lost someone whom we love and admire. Is it worth it?
    So, take care and my very best of wishes to you. We, educated Malaysians, are behind you.

  100. sandyow says:

    Maybe people should think about what they write online, by making allegations without proof, it will get any person in trouble.

  101. anne chang says:

    i agree on what sandyow said!..biased comment can cause a person into trouble!

  102. ah Long says:

    Wei….Raja Petra, botak…..why you no run in election to become MP. You waste your talent lah. I bet during question time, I can sell black market ticket to the public gallery in parliament for at least 500 ringgit to watch you in action.

    I bet lots of big shots all go to tundas to hide when your turn to ask questions. Botak, really one, you must consider standing for election. The nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

    Wei, you got say putting an UMNO lawyer in charge of judicial reform is like “putting a fox in a henhouse”.

    I say it is like putting Dracula in charge of the blood bank !!! hehehehe

  103. hutchrun says:

    RPK says:

    I received a phone call early this morning saying that the police have contacted YB William Leong to inform him they will be taking me in today. It was not made clear whether it would be to take my statement, which they failed to get from me last Friday, or whether I am to be detained or charged. Nevertheless, I am on standby, waiting for them to phone me to ‘surrender’ myself to Bukit Aman, or for them to come to my house to arrest me. Either way I am waiting and am quite prepared for the prospect that this may be my last article for quite some time to come…..

    I oppose evil. But the government calls it sedition. And for my ‘crime’ of sedition they would like to send me to jail. I would not like to go to jail for grabbing the backside of a cigar girl. I would not like to go to jail for raping an underage girl. I would not like to go to jail for murdering a Mongolian woman. I would not like to go to jail for robbing the nation. But I would enjoy going to jail for fulfilling my duty as a true Muslim under the mandatory fardu kifayah. So I await jail with glee in my heart.

  104. RPK: Very well said and may GOD be with you; SATAN be with those who tell lies and cover up misdeeds. You are a true GENTLEMAN.

  105. phillix says:

    i feel that rpk should hv nothing to fear about if what he reports all these while is true. but if there’s been blasphemy then i guess it will serve as a lesson to all bloggers and citizen journalists alike – be responsible for what you say!

  106. dodgy inc says:

    Anwar Ibrahim, Wan Azizah, Khalid Ibrahim
    Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng
    Hadi Awang, Nizar Jamaluddin

    If you are reading my post, I like to make a suggestion here,

    Would be obliged if you could direct all your respective state government agencies to post billboard pictures of RPK at every corner of the streets. Better still if you can post his pictures at every state government offices until his release from prison.

    As a small token of our appreciation of this big than life Towering Malaysian: Raja Petra Kamarudin
    and a reminder of our continual fight of injustices in this country.

    Article 10 of the Constitution of Malaysia

    Article 10 of the Constitution of Malaysia guarantees Malaysian citizens the right to freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association. Unlike comparable provisions in constitutional law such as the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, Article 10 entitles citizens to such freedoms as are not restricted by the government, instead of absolutely guaranteeing those freedoms.

    Subject to Clauses (2), (3) and (4) —
    (a) every citizen has the right to freedom of speech and expression;
    (b) all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms;
    (c) all citizens have the right to form associations.
    Parliament may by law impose —
    (a) on the rights conferred by paragraph (a) of Clause (1), such restrictions as it deems necessary or expedient in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof, friendly relations with other countries, public order or morality and restrictions designed to protect the privileges of Parliament or of any Legislative Assembly or to provide against contempt of court, defamation, or incitement to any offence;
    (b) on the right conferred by paragraph (b) of Clause (1), such restrictions as it deems necessary or expedient in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof, or public order;
    (c) on the right conferred by paragraph (c) of Clause (1), such restrictions as it deems necessary or expedient in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof, public order or morality.
    Restrictions on the right to form associations conferred by paragraph (c) of Clause (1) may also be imposed by any law relating to labour or education.
    In imposing restrictions in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof or public order under Clause (2) (a), Parliament may pass law prohibiting the questioning of any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of Part III, Article 152, Article 153 or Article 181 otherwise than in relation to the implementation thereof as may be specified in such law.
