2 POLITICIANS, 1 ACTIVIST ARRESTED UNDER MALAYSIA SEDITION ACT

PETALING JAYA, Malaysia -   The police today launched a crackdown against opposition leaders and activists who had questioned the conduct of the general election and the legitimacy of the Barisan Nasional government.
As of 5pm, the police had reportedly arrested five people. Initial reports claimed that PKR leader and Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) founder Badrul Hisham Shaharin (right photo) was among those detained.
However, a text message to FMT via Badrul’s mobile phone read: “A few men who in a Proton Waja who are believed to be policemen came looking for him at his mother’s house. But he wasn’t there. He is in KL until May 25… up to this point, he is fine.”
The arrests came after student activist Adam Ali was charged this morning under the Sedition Act for calling for the toppling of the BN government during a forum on May 13.
First to be arrested today was Anything But Umno (ABU) leader Haris Ibrahim(right photo) who was nabbed while having his lunch, followed by PKR vice-president Tian Chua at the LCCT and PAS member Thamrin Ghaffar, arrested at a popular kopitiam restaurant in Bangsar.
And then at about 5pm, news filtered in to say that Badrul Hisham has also been arrested. However at 6pm, apart from an SMS from his handphone, a statement by SAMM said that Badrul Hisham was “still free”. 
It could not be confirmed with the police if Badrul Hisham has been arrested.
All those arrested have been detained under the Sedition Act.
