WHAT free speech?

Raja Petra Kamaruddin, a government critic and founder of the Malaysia Today website, has been sent to the Kamunting detention centre in northern Perak state on the order of the home minister, his wife Marina Lee Abdullah told AFP.

His arrest earlier this month was part of a crackdown amid a political crisis in Malaysia, as Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi faces calls to quit from within his cabinet and a mounting challenge by the opposition.

Free him:

The detention of Malaysian blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin at the Kamunting Detention Camp, Taiping, for two years under Section 8(1) of the Internal Security Act is the biggest act of injustice and cowardice I have seen in a long time.

A campaign to free him
