The perfect Muslim wife. For an hour, Marina Lee Abdullah, a grandma of two, refused to answer questions posed by her interrogator at the Dang Wangi police station in Kuala Lumpur. From 11 am to noon, she repeatedly told the Investigating Officer that, "As a Muslim wife, I am obligated to obey my husband, who has ordered me not to answer any question."
Raja Petra Kamaruddin, who runs Malaysia Today, the on-line news portal that has run many exposes on certain government leaders, accompanied his wife during the interrogation. He was detained at the same police station for 8 hours late last month following an Umno police report against a poster's comment in Malaysia Today.
A small group of bloggers, including the daughter of a former Prime Minister and the daughter of a former ISA detainee, who were at the police station to lend their support, waited until Marina's ordeal was over.
RPK thanked everyone for their support.
p.s. And the intimidation continues.... We heard an on-line writer, an author of several books, has been summoned by the police, believed in connection with Umno's police report against RPK.
