Good news just before i leave. malaysiakini reported that RPK was ordered by the Shah Alam High Court to be released as his detention is illegal. To quote Malaysikini:
The Shah Alam High Court this morning ruled that the detention of well-known blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin under the ISA was illegal and ordered his immediate release.
He said that the Home Minister had not followed the proper procedure under Section 8 of the ISA to issue the detention order against Raja Petra.
The judge also ordered that Raja Petra, editor of the popular ‘Malaysia Today’ website, be produced in court by 4pm today after which he should be immediately released.
Raja Petra is presently being held at the Kamunting detention centre in Perak.
The ruling by the court followed a habeas corpus application by Raja Petra’s counsel seeking his release from detention under the security law.
I hope the police will not make another blunder by re-arresting him again , like in some cases before. They can appeal the judgement but please let RPK out immediately.
