Welcome home, Pete.
This is what everyone is saying since 9.30am this morning. Malaysia’s ‘hero’ and famous blogger RAJA PETRA KAMARUDDIN is free – posted bail @RM5,000 and now awaits trial for his Sedition charge on 6 October.
If you want to know why he was arrested, well, it’s written all over the walls of Putrajaya…seriously, look here at my earlier post “Raja Petra goes to jail for Altantuya“.
I know I am a bit late in posting this, but all the same, I am delighted. What excited me more was the manner in which RPK came out of jail. Have you seen the black T-Shirt he was wearing – people tell me it says “RPK, C4ME!”.
I’d really like to have that T-shirt, Pete.
Anyway, he later wears another T-shirt that says “Justice for ALL…tantuya”. That was the T-shirt campaign he was talking about on 28 April, where I met him in Bangsar, 9 days before his arrest. He finally made it and I am sure Altantuya is looking down from wherever she is and saying “Thank you, bless you, Malaysia”.
Anyway, c4 was also the reason why RPK posted bail today.
According to Malaysiakini:
“The prison authority told me that they cannot guarantee my safety because they had received some reports of threat and that Sirul (Azhar Umar) and Azilah (Hadri) had shouted and said that something will happen to me,” he told reporters.
Sirul and Azilah are the two primary murder suspects in the ongoing hearing of the killing of Altantuya Shaariibuu, a young Mongolian woman.Both are currently being remanded at the Sungai Buloh prison where Raja Petra prior to today, had been detained as well.
