A text message from Zorro buzzed my mobile late last night. The message reads: “RPK to be charged at Jalan Duta Court. 9.30 a.m.” My heart missed a beat.
RPK or Raja Petra Kamarudin runs a flaming political portal, Malaysia Today. The cops recently quizzed him on May 3rd, 2008 over an article – Let’s Send Altantuya’s Murderers to Hell – he authored and published in the said website.
Malaysiakini reports that he is to be charged with sedition at Kuala Lumpur Magistrate Court. Detail of the charge remains unclear at this time. Rocky says that a commenter on RPK’s blog, Syed Akhbar Ali, has also been ordered to appear at the same court.
