Zunar’s stand

Three of Zunar’s part-time assistants were arrested for selling his cartoon books at the Palace of Justice a couple of days ago during the Anwar trial. (The information released at the time and reported was that his wife was among those arrested – but then his wife was in Port Dickson at the time, so how?! Oops.) The three – Rizaldy, Raja Norita and Norliza Mohd Kassim – were released at midnight.

Ten copies of Pirates of the Carry-BN and 33 copies of Buku Komplot Penjarakan Anwar were seized. (Check out the books.) The books are apparently being investigated under three laws: the Printing Presses and Publications Act, the Penal Code and the Sedition Act.

A few colleagues and I caught up with Zunar over a banana leaf lunch when he was in Penang recently. Check out the T-shirt he was wearing.

Zunar and his T-shirt - His stand is clear. What's yours?
