Blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin was questioned this morning by the Federal Commercial Crime Cyber Crime Unit with regard to an article he posted in his blog that referred to the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder.
A seven-men team of cops led by Deputy Superintendent Victor Sanjos spent two hours at Raja Petra’s home in Kuala Lumpur, from 09:00 to 11:00 hours
When contacted, Raja Petra, 58, said he was being investigated under the Sedition Act 1948 for an article titled “Let’s send the Altantuya murderers to hell” that was posted on his blog website www.malaysia-today.net on 25th April 2008.
“The police officers questioned me and later took my laptop and my personal computer,” he reportedly said after the morning raid.
He also was ordered to report to go to the Bukit Aman Federal Police Headquarters at 16:00 hours, so he did so.
He refused to make that statement, of course. The cops gave up (for now, at least) at 18:00 hours.
RPK was accompanied by his lawyer, William Leong, the Member of Parliament for Selayang, near Kuala Lumpur.
This is the fourth time that Raja Petra Kamarudin is being investigated by police under the same Act. The first was in March 2001 followed by November 2004 and then July last year.
Under Section 233 of the specified Act, anyone found guilty of an offence, could be fined up to a maximum of RM50,000, a jail sentence of maximum period of one year, or both.
