Zunar suing government for book seizure and arrest

I’ve been following the challenges faced by Zulkiflee SM Anwar Ulhaque (better known as Zunar) of Malaysia who was arrested for sedition last year and his books were seized by the government the day before they could hit book shelves.

The latest news is that he’s suing the government.

Zulkiflee, who was also arrested during the raid, claimed that ASP Arikrishna did not explain to him clearly the reasons for his detention and the seizure of the books, and that the officer had merely pointed out several cartoons as “being seditious”.

In his statement of claim, he said he was also taken to several police stations here and in Selangor before being remanded for a day at Sepang police station and had his statement recorded.
