RPK Picked Up By Msian Authorities In Bangkok

Raja Petra Kamarudin, who is in Bangkok today with Haris Ibrahim, is being picked up by the Malaysian authorities and will be taken to the Malaysian embassy in Bangkok at 8pm tonight.

Raja Petra, the Chairman of the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM), and Haris, the President of MCLM, is currently giving a talk to Malaysians in Thailand.

A Malaysian official approached Raja Petra just before the start of the event to inform him that he is required to go to the Malaysian embassy immediately after the talk.

It is believed that this involves the police investigation on the Statutory Declaration that Raja Petra signed in June 2008.

It is not known if Raja Petra is being arrested to be brought back to Malaysia or whether they will hold him in Thailand until proper extradition procedures have been completed.

Yesterday, another Blogger, Din Merican, was summoned to Bukit Aman and was interrogated by the police for three hours from 3.00-6.00pm.

The police wanted to know about his relationship with Raja Petra and other matters regarding the June 2008 SD. The police also asked Din about Raja Petra's recent TV3 interview.
