Raja Petra Kamarudin did not attend court today. It's not like him. I was told early this week that he had left for England but I didn't think Pet was one to run.
His lawyer J. Chandra informed judge Rozina Ayob that his client did not turn up in court on the grounds he is on a self-imposed exile from the state for “reasons that are well known.”
Read the story here.
And by RPK himself, here: "I .. have reason to believe that a new detention order has been issued and that is why the police are looking for me. If I were to turn up in court today I would never be allowed to leave. The police would immediately detain me and send me to Kamunting and this time I shall not be so fortunate as to see freedom in two months like in the last two occasions".
