Petra’s wife called for police questioning!? August 7, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Human Rights, Malaysia, Politics.
(Updated) Marina’s statement took 90 minutes only, so swift that I missed out by the time I got to KL, thinking it would take several hours.
According to Petra (quoted in Malaysiakini):-
According to Raja Petra, who had accompanied her into the interrogation room, Marina was asked about six to seven questions, pertaining to her involvement with Malaysia Today and whether any other individuals were involved.
“Marina’s reply was the same for every question: As a Muslim wife, she is obligated to follow and not go against her husband’s wishes. Her husband has instructed her not to reply to any questions the police ask.
“As a Muslim wife, she comes under Syariah and not common law. She cannot go against her husband’s wishes. That was her reply to every question,” said Raja Petra, who was seen clutching a Koran when they went into the interrogation room.
She ending by asking the police what happened to the investigation of Dr. Ng Seng’s piece which sat on the PM’s website and articles which were anti-Christian on the Kelab Maya Umno (Umno web club). LOL.
Three down. Expect more to be hauled up.

(Earlier) Just saw this on Malaysia-Today.net. They don’t let up, do they?
Raja Petra Kamarudin’s wife, Marina Lee, has been summoned to the Dang Wangi Police Station, Jalan Stadium, at 11.00am, Wednesday, 8 August 2007, for interrogation related to the investigation under the Sedition Act launched against Raja Petra.
It is not known whether the police are trying to build up a case against Marina as well so that she can be jointly-charged with Raja Petra.
