Kickdefella arrested!

Posted on September 17, 2008


Malaysiakini reports that Syed Azidi aka Kickdefella was arrested in Kota Baru today.

His wife is reported to have said that she was informed that his arrest was in relation to an alleged offence under the Sedition Act, based on a police report lodged in Kuala Lumpur.

Now if you were the authorities, and would like to use the ISA, but had just received a whacking over the last few days for the use of the ISA on Sin Chew’s Tan, Teresa and RPK, what would you do if you still wanted to take a few ‘noisy’ people into custody so that you could then go about the business of neutering your adversary’s efforts to pull the rug from under your feet and seize power?

If I was that authority, I would arrest those ‘noisy’ people under the Sedition Act or any other convenient law and got as long a remand period as possible.
