RPK: I am not a terrorist. I am not a dangerous person. I am just a writer.

SHAH ALAM: Blogger Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin said he was surprised to be released from detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

“Not many people who challenged Section 8 of the ISA have succeeded, so I did not give much hope to it. It is a sort of 50-50. I was surprised actually,” said the 58-year-old.

Asked about his feelings, Raja Petra said, “I am just too tired”.

To a question on what this experience taught him, he said, “I suppose we have to fight all-out to get the ISA abolished. I suppose the cause has been recognised.”

He also said that the ISA was not a valid law to be used against political dissidents.

“The court decision has made very clear the message that ISA cannot be used for political reasons.

“I am not a terrorist. I am not a dangerous person. I am just a writer,” he said.

Asked if he was looking forward to having Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as the Prime Minister, Raja Petra said, “I am waiting for Anwar (PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) to become the Prime Minister.”

The scruffy-bearded Raja Petra was given a hero’s welcome and garlanded with flowers as he walked out of the Shah Alam High Court a free man.

Smiling broadly, he spoke briefly to reporters before greeting the horde of supporters who were at the court since morning in anticipation of his release.

His supporters, clad in various colours with different slogans on their T-shirts saying, “Free RPK, Abolish ISA, We Want Our Rights, No to ISA and No Holds Barred,” clapped and cheered in and outside the courtroom.

Raja Petra left for home in a maroon Rolls-Royce car at 3.35pm.

He was accompanied by wife Marina Lee Abdullah. Also present was DAP’s Ronnie Liu, who is also a Selangor state executive councillor. - The Star

ISA: Crime against humanity

Sunday, August 03, 2008


A lot has been happening lately. You know it too. Loads of garbage being thrown around. Frankly, I'm sick and tired of it. It's deja vu for me. What?! Sodomy again?! You gotta be kidding me.

When will all this end? It's all about power plain and simple. The things that people do to stay in power has never ceased to amaze me. But to do evil things...that's too much to take. But then again, this is Malaysia, The Land of Semua Boleh.

Read RPK's
Doctor on the run: police want him to fabricate evidence against Anwar.

I'm sure you have seen the medical report too. TRO means 'to rule out'.

When asked by reporters this is what the people in Pusrawi said:

You have spoken to Dr Mohamed who has confirmed that he examined Saiful and confirmed that he has signed this medical report, why is the hospital still not convinced that it is the genuine medical report? Why is it taking so long to match the copy with the original copy?

We just realised this. When? Two days ago. It is just like VK Lingam said, "It looks like me, sounds like me but it is not me". [malaysiakini]

Welcome to Loony Country.

Free RPK

I've been neglecting my blog. But tonight I have to blog about my friend Pet. I spoke to his wife, Marina, this morning and we talked about Pet. I told her we need Pet around. We're worried about his kidney problem too if he insists to carry on with his hunger strike. I pity Marina. She must be mentally and physically drained. But I know she's a strong lady. She's right when she wrote, "we Petras' are not some tofus".

Thank God Pet has finally agreed to post bail. Kudos to Marina for her persuasion skills. Hopefully Pet will be out tomorrow before Friday prayers. Looking forward to seeing you Pet. We need you out here to keep on fighting. Heroes should not be behind bars, they should be out to fight for justice.

Raja Petra to be freed
Charles Ramendran and Tan Yi Liang

PETALING JAYA (May 8, 2008):'s webmaster Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin, who refused bail on a sedition charge and went on a hunger strike in Sungai Buloh prison, has agreed to post bail after being persuaded by his wife today.

However, due to the fact that he only decided past noon, the 58-year-old blogger had to be held until tomorrow and is expected to be produced in the Petaling Jaya sessions court for his release.

In a sessions court here, Raja Petra's lawyer J. Chandra, who was with the blogger's wife, Marina Lee Abdullah, said the court had to follow procedures when releasing an accused under remand.

It is learnt that bail for those held is usually posted in the early hours of the day to enable police to produce the accused before noon.

"We tried to get him out by today but the judge chose to follow procedures and did not want to make an exception for him," said Chandra.

Marina had met with her husband in prison early today for about 10 minutes. She was relieved when he agreed to come home and end the hunger strike.

"Probably the note I left him on Wednesday in the prison helped a bit. All my note said was 'I want you home'. He was fine although he looked down due to a backache. He also told me he had something to eat and drink," she said.

Raja Petra is expected to be brought to court at 9.45am tomorrow after she posted bail of RM5,000.

Marina said although the online fund raiser for her husband's bail was closed several hours after it was open on Tuesday (May 6), it continued to swell and currently stands at more than RM44,000. On the first day, RM34,000 was collected from supporters of the controversial blogger known for his fiery and no-holds barred comments and articles.

She said although Raja Petra would decide what to do with the remainder of the money, she suggests the fund could be used to help bloggers in a similar situation.

"There is another blogger who is being charged, and posted bail of RM3,000. The general consensus is that we should keep the money for other bloggers who get into trouble like this," she said, adding that they would put it to an online vote.
