Raja Petra Kamarudin begins two-year detention under ISA at Kamunting

Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin was sent to the Kamunting Detention Centre in Taiping at 11am this morning to begin his two-year detention under the Internal Security Act.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar confirmed he signed the detention order based on investigations and recommendations by the police. Syed Hamid said Raja Petra was sent to Kamunting before his 60-day remand ended as police had found concrete evidence that his postings in the Malaysia Today blogsite, was prejudicial to the security of the country.

Raja Petra's wife Marina Lee Abdullah said she was informed of the detention order by an officer from the Federal police headquarters through a phone call at 9am. She added that no decision was made on her husband's submission of habeas corpus today as judge Suraya Othman had ordered that Raja Petra submit a written submission to be heard on Oct 28.

Raja Petra, 58, was picked up at his house in Sungai Buloh at 1.10 pm on Sept 12.
