SARAWAK REPORT EDITOR TO BE ARRESTED BY MALAYSIAN POLICE

 
PETALING JAYA, Malaysia – Malaysian Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Sarawak Report founder and editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown (pic).
Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh said in a statement on Tuesday that the arrest warrant issued by a Kuala Lumpur court was for activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy under Section 124B and 124I of the Penal Code.
Section 124I deals with publication of false reports or makes false statements likely to cause public alarm via newspapers, periodicals or other printed publication or electronic means.
Jail term for the offences can be extended to between five and 10 years.
"We will proceed with applications to place her on the Aseanpol wanted list, as well as the Interpol red notice," Comm Mohmad said. 
The warrant for Ms Brown's arrest comes a day after a Special Task Force concluded that RM 2.6 billion (US$700 million) transferred into Mr Najib's accounts, were from donations and not 1MDB. 
Her website was already blocked by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) on July 19, citing national stability concerns.
