Bullyboys on rampage again

And Proud of it! (Courtesy of Mob1900)

From Rocky:
Spoke to RPK. He's at home. They confiscated his desktop and laptop. And he has been summoned to Bukit Aman (CCID, near the Bank Negara NOT the one near the old British Council, just in case you want to turn up and show your support) to give a statement.

Update by Rocky (7.30 pm):

RPK, who runs the Malaysia Today on-line, said the Commercial Crime Division of Bukit Aman had asked him to make a statement with regards to his posting headlined "Let's send Altantuya murderers to Hell".

He refused to make that statement, of course.

The cops gave up (for now, at least) after two hours.

RPK was accompanied by his lawyer, YB William Leong, the MP of Selayang.

Scores of journalists, bloggers and Malaysia Today supporters waited at the entrance of the Bukit Aman.

The MP of Wangsa Maju, YB Wee Choo Keong, arrived just after 5pm. After a brief discussion with Marina, RPK's wife, Wee told her he would try and meet the cops. He asked me to accompany him. Wee took offence when the sentry on duty stepped in front of him and blocked his progress with an elbow.

"Wah, is this a police state now? I don't think we are a police state. Are we a police state?" Wee challenged the sentry's superiors. He said the sentry treated him like a criminal.

"If you can do this to an wakil rakyat," he continued, "what chance does the average citizen," he said, pointing at me, "your guard there will kick him out, hah?"

That's YB Wee for you!

Raja Petra said the cops still had his lap top and computer. He confirmed that he was being investigated under Sedition Act.

"For two hours they tried to make me make a statement. I refused. They threatened to charge me for refusing to make a statement. I told them, go ahead and arrest me or release me right now. And i told them that if they let me walk, I don't want to see their faces again."

Go to for our own Yew-Tube.
From a former victim (and still a victim actually), Nat:
There are unconfirmed reports via KeADILan’s sms service that RPK’s house was searched by the police and his computers confiscated (these dumbos never seem to get the point with the computer confiscation), over articles concerning Najib and Altantuya.
Susan Loone says:
Keep close watch. Keep your fingers cross. For those who pray, pray for Raja Petra.

We are with you.

Police call in Raja Petra for questioning (Malaysiakini 2/5/08)

Cops investigating Raja Petra under Multimedia Act
The Star (2/5/08): Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin is being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 and Section 4C of the Seditious Act for an article he wrote recently titled Let's send the Altantuya murderers to hell.

It is learnt that eight police officers from the Federal Commercial Crimes Investigations Department (CCID) visited Raja Petra’s house in Sungai Buloh here at about 9am on Friday.

They seized a laptop and a CPU (central processing unit) before leaving at about 11am.

Raja Petra was summoned to the Federal Commercial Crimes Investigations Department (CCID) department at 4pm Friday after initially being told to report there at 11am Saturday.

He was allowed to leave at about 6pm after he refused to give a statement on the article he wrote and posted on the Malaysia Today online news portal on April 25.

His lawyer William Leong, who is also the Selayang MP, accompanied him.

More than 20 people including his wife and Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong, who was disallowed entry into the CCID building to see Raja Petra, waited outside the building and cheered when he walked out.

Speaking to reporters outside the department building, Raja Petra said that he was summoned to the department to give a statement under Section 4C of the Seditious Act for the article that he wrote in his blog on murdered Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu.

He said that the police officers were trying to persuade him for two hours to give a statement on the article.

"They told me that they wanted to take down my statement but I told them that I refuse to answer any questions or for my statement to be taken.

"I also told them that this is the fourth time they are calling me to give a statement under the Seditious Act where the first one was in 2001, the second in November 2004, the third when (Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Muhammad) Muhammad Taib lodged a police report at the Dang Wangi police station in 2007 and this is the fourth time," he said.

Raja Petra claimed that the police told him that they would arrest him if he refused to give a statement as they were supposed to question him under Section 112 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

When asked why he had refused to give a statement, Raja Petra replied, "Because this is political prosecution. I refuse to play their political game.''

He also said that the police officers had refused to reveal the name of the person who had lodged a report against him.

"They only told me that it was a police officer,'' he said.

When questioned whether he would need to be present at the CCID department at 11am Saturday, based on a notice served by the police officers who had gone to his house Friday, Raja Petra replied, ''I don't know. Maybe they will charge me for refusing to make a statement and arrest me,'' he said, adding that the laptop and CPU which were taken away by police officers earlier Friday were not returned to him.
