“He reminded bloggers and Internet users that there were laws pertaining to sedition, defamation and libel.Just because you operate in cyberspace does not mean that you are absolved from having to comply with the nation’s laws,” he said in Mersing today, when asked to comment on the recent case involving Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin.

Najib said that in any case, it was up to the Attorney-General to see if there was a case.
“This is not politically-motivated,” he said Wednesday after accompanying Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah during a one-day working visit to the military’s special forces base here.
