UPDATE: According to kickdefella: “Bakaq or his real name is Abdul Rashid Abu Bakar has contributed a lot in revealing the hidden agenda of the infamous Muzakarah between PAS and UMNO. It is so damaging that the Deputy President of PAS, Nasharuddin Mat Isa has made a threat to sue him although later it was proven that much of what Bakaq has revealed is true.”
Penarikbeca may not be as famous a blogger as Rocky or RPK, but a blogger nonetheless. Been unable to go onto his blog.
Found out that he has been arrested from Nat Tan’s blog HERE, where he got his information from Amin Iskandar.
Blogger yang menggendalikan blog Penarik Beca, ditahan polis malam tadi.
Menurut isterinya, empat orang polis datang kerumah mereka dan menahan Bakar (nama sebenar Penarik Beca) bersama-sama dengan telefon bimbit dan laptopnya.
Hanifah Maidin, peguam yang akan mewakili Bakar menghubungi polis sebentar tadi dan disahkan bahawa Bakar a.k.a Penarik Beca ditahan dibawah Akta Hasutan.
Kepada rakan-rakan blogger dan pembaca blog, marilah kita menyatakan sokongan kepada Bakar dan tidak akan tunduk diatas segala tekanan yang diberikan oleh pemerintah terhadap blogger!
Don’t know what it is that penarikbeca wrote that called on this arrest, but being charged for sedition is not a small matter.
To fellow bloggers reading this, I say let’s spread the news.
