Do you want the Sedition Act to stay or go?

It’s time again for the rakyat to send instruction to the government.

Dear Rakyat,

Do you want the Sedition Act to stay?

Or do you want it to go far, far, far, far, far…. away?

Please do participate in a poll in my friend’s website: http://mylivingwall.com

Poll is on the right side, scroll down a bit.

At moment it looks like a neck-to-neck between ‘stay’ and ‘abolish’

Raja Petra to be charged with sedition Tuesday!

A friend rang me just now and pestered me to put this news on me blog.

I’m flustered and hopping maaaad… partly because of this news and partly because I have to put up this from mainstream media.

Online article from The Star says this:

KUALA LUMPUR: Raja Petra Kamaruddin, the webmaster of news portal Malaysia Today, is expected to be charged with sedition at the magistrates’ court in the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex in Jalan Duta on Tuesday.

He is expected to appear in court at 9.30am. Raja Petra was investigated under section 4 (1) of the Sedition Act 1948 for the article “Let’s send the Altantuya murderers to hell.”

The article was posted on his website on April 25 and implicated Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Another blogger, Syed Ali Akbar, was also summoned to court and is expected to be charged under the same Act.

He allegedly posted an article on Arabs and Islam on his blog.

Raja Petra’s wife, Marina Lee Abdullah, said the police officer who called them did not state what Raja Petra would be charged with.

“The police officer told us to just appear in court and we would be informed then,” she said.

Marina said once they know what the charges are, they would post bail.

To raise bail, they will involve the people. They will put up their bank account number on the website and encourage Netizens to bank in RM1 each.

On Friday, Raja Petra was summoned to the Federal Commercial Crimes Investigations Department (CCID) in Bukit Perdana at 4pm and was allowed to leave two hours later.

Eight police officers from the CCID visited his house in Sungai Buloh at 9am and seized a laptop and a CPU belonging to him before leaving at 11am.

Raja Petra ordered to report to Bukit Aman at 4.00pm TODAY (UPDATED)

At 9.00am today, seven police officers from the Cyber Crime Division, Bukit Aman, went to Raja Petra’s house to confiscate his PC and notebook computer. They left at 11.00am after issuing Raja Petra a notice to report to Bukit Aman at 4.00pm TODAY, 2 May 2008.

According to the police, Raja Petra is being investigated under the Sedition Act with regards to an article he wrote, Let’s send the Altantuya murderers to hell. It seems a police report has been made against Raja Petra by another police officer.

The Bukit Aman Cyber Crime Division is at Kompleks Perdana, the old office of the Prime Minister behind Bank Negara.

We have no further news but Raja Petra will try to update the latest developments once he can get his hand on a new computer.
