KUALA LUMPUR — August 4, 2015: The police have obtained a warrant of arrest from a court here against Clare Rewcastle-Brown, the founder and editor of the Sarawak Report news portal.
Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh said the warrant obtained today was for offences under Sections 124B and 124I of the Penal Code.
“We will proceed with the application to place her on the Aseanapol Wanted List as well as the Interpol Red Notice,” he said in a statement.
