KUALA LUMPUR – November 3, 2017: Manchester-based blogger Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin or RPK has been questioned by Malaysian police at the Malaysian High Commission in London over a report against him by Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali.
This was confirmed by the blogger’s daughter Raja Sara today.
“He was called for questioning, not arrested,” wrote Raja Sara to The Mole via Facebook when asked if her father had met with the police and if there was any truth to rumours that he had been arrested.
Raja Sara is a writer based here.
According to political blog The Third Force, RPK was questioned on Wednesday by Bukit Aman officers.
Apandi lodged a police report against RPK on October 22 for criminal defamation.
On Monday, Apandi told a press conference that he would sue RPK to kingdom come if the blogger refused to apologise.
“If there is no apology from him, I will definitely sue him. How can he smear my name? I don’t even know him. It is my reputation,” he had said.
Bukit Aman’s public relations department said it had yet to receive any information on the questioning.
