INSPECTOR Knacker of the Kuala Lumpur Yard seems to be a little too interested in protecting the reputation of politicians from Internet bloggers.
The writer of a popular bog Malaysia Today found coppers barging into his house after he penned a rant about how the deputy premier and his wife were involved in the murder of a Mongolian model.
Raja Petra Kamaruddin said coppers questioned him and walked off with his PC under their arms after he penned the rant entitled "Let's send the Altantuya murderers to hell.”
The rant was based on something that Kamaruddin read in his local rag about Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife being involved in the case.
Najib was tipped to be the successor to Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has denied any involvement in the high-profile murder case.
Basically his mate, political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda, has been charged with helping someone blow up a Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu. Two coppers from the Special Action Force, whose job it is to look after the prime minister and deputy, are charged with the killing.
Najib's wife, Rosmah Mansor has denied any involvement in the killing and denounced the Internet lies.
It is not the first time that Raja Petra has fallen foul of the authorities. Coppers swooped on his house when he wrote a rant that someone thought insulted Islam and the king. µ
