Cops to see Raja Petra over post 

CLAIMS: Blogger implies opposition leaders involved in Lahad Datu incursion

(NST) – KUALA LUMPUR: A POLICE team will leave today for Singapore to interview controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin over a  posting he made in relation to the Lahad Datu incursion.

Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin said Raja Petra had implied in his April 25 post on the Malaysia Today news portal that several local opposition leaders were involved in the incursion.

“The blogger is quite well known in Malaysia, although he is not based here. We need to record his statement to facilitate our Ops Daulat and Lahad Datu investigations,” he told the New Straits Times.

In a post titled “The untold story of the Lahad Datu incident”, Raja Petra claimed that an opposition leader had flown to Jakarta in July last year to meet with Nur Misuari and military commanders from the Moro National Liberation Front.

Raja Petra claimed that the meeting, which was held at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Jakarta, had been arranged by an Indonesian member of parliament at the opposition leader’s request.

He also claimed that a second meeting to finalise and seal the agreement was held in Manila in August last year. The opposition leader had allegedly sought Misuari’s help to win in the 13th General Election.
