First it was bloggers Raja Petra and Sheih Kickdefella investigated for sedition.
Now it’s the turn of Jed Yoong, who was hauled up and questioned. Four police personnel also arrived at her house and confiscated her laptop, its power cable, a desktop CPU, a router and a modem, according to Jed in her blog. She was told she was being investigated for sedition.
Jed argued that her blog was not particularly influential, compared to the mainstream media. “I strongly feel it is ludicrous and absurd to say that I can even influence anyone what more incite racial hatred or any sort of hatred towards anyone,” she wrote in her blog. “If anyone is hateful, they will be so without reading my blog.’
She added in a statement posted on her blog that she had been asked to go to Bukit Aman tonight for a second round of interrogation.
Meanwhile, Ahirudin Atan (Rocky) reports that he was “interviewed” yesterday afternoon “following a police report lodged in Sg Petani recently against certain comments left by visitors to his blog under the article “Glass and Diamond, and a Silver Jubilee”. The blog posting was written on 14 Feb at the height of the Perak state assembly crisis.
Over in Selangor, the MB’s office said in a press release that the state government has agreed to allow Elizabeth Wong’s leave to continue until police investigations are completed.
