P/s: Just got back from Solat Jumaat. I was quite shocked to see the news that RPK has been detained today. Just a few days before that, government has revoked and reinstated the banned blogs and websites and suddenly they arrested the most prominent blogger an hour ago. It happens again today with the man behind the capture-order none other than the Dolah's 'cakap-tak-serupa bikin' and I bet he's the one that responsible of ordering the arrest. He's totally way too far diverted nowadays. Nothing much can be hope from him as he's making a lot of uncomfortable and inconsistent decision. Sighhh!!!
THE STAR ONLINE: Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin was arrested Friday afternoon under the Internal Security Act. Three Malaysian newspapers - Sin Chew Daily, The Sun, and Suara Keadilan - were also issued show cause letters by the Home Ministry. Raja Petra’s arrest comes a day after the Cabinet ordered the Multimedia and Communications Commission (MCMC) to reinstate access to all blocked websites, including the controversial Malaysia Today. Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said on Thursday the order was made because there were other “harsher” laws in the country, under which authorities could take action against the owners of blogs and websites, instead of blocking it.
“The Cabinet has asked the ministry to direct MCMC to reinstate access to any blocked website with immediate effect. “At the same time, it is asking MCMC to closely cooperate with the police, the Attorney-General’s Office and the Home Minister to monitor any website or blog to ensure that this does not contain seditious, racist or religiously insensitive remarks. “Instead of blocking access to offensive websites, the Cabinet wants authorities to investigate and act quickly against the owners of these sites,” he said in Putrajaya.
