Seri Muda rep Shuhaimi says he will face sedition charge Monday


KLANG: Seri Muda assemblyman Shuhaimi Shafie was arrested by Shah Alam police and released on personal surety Thursday morning ahead of being charged for sedition on Monday.

“I was told the arrest was merely to ensure I have been duly informed that I’ll be charged on Monday,” he said, when contacted.

He added that he would be charged under section 4(1) C of the Sedition Act 1948 at the Shah Alam court for his blog entry pertaining to the appointment of the Selangor state secretary recently.

Shuhaimi, who criticised Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi’s appointment as the state secretary, had come under heavy fire and accused of showing disrespect to the Selangor Sultan.

Countless police reports had been lodged against Shuhaimi since with Selangor Anti-Fraud Coalition (GAPS) and Malay rights group Perkasa vehemently condemning him.

According to Shuhaimi he had been contacted by Shah Alam police and asked to present himself at the district police headquarters at 7.00pm Thursday.

“I couldn’t go as I was attending a ceramah elsewhere and so I went this morning and was arrested outside the police station (in Section 11, Shah Alam), he said.

Shuhaimi said he was prepared to face whatever awaited him.

“You have to accept these things in politics and we will fight this,” said Shuhaimi adding that his blog entry was nothing serious and did not warrant such a drastic measure.

PKR legal bureau chief Latheefa Koya and a platoon of lawyers from within the party are expected to represent Shuhaimi on Monday.


Posting is his blog on 30 December 2010 deemed seditious against HRH Sultan of Selangor, for consenting the appointment of Khusrin by the Public Services Commission, against the political wish of Selangor Pakatan Rakyat.

MB Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim should also be arrested and charged under the same law. He not only manipulated the points that was raised by HRH Sultan Selangor when the former sought audience on the appointment, he deceived the rakyat stating that HRH was not in favour of PSC’s appointment of Khusrin.

The impasse that was created by Khalid and his band of PKR bandits by making Khusrin’s appointment a political issue is simply getting HRH Sultan of Selangor’s Government to collide against His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong’s Government. This must be very bad for the rakyat and administrators of Selangor.

Khalid also manipulated historical facts when in his opening address at the special Selangor State Assembly sitting to amend the Selangor Constitution by stating that BN is anti monarchy by propagating the Constitutional amendments in 1983 to ensure that all laws passed by the Parliament or any State Assemblies get to be deemed accepted by HRH Rulers after a certain even without the assent of the HRHs.
