KUALA LUMPUR: A blogger has applied for a revision from the High Court to challenge the four-day remand order issued by a magistrate against him last week.
Nathaniel Tan Jin Ji, 27, Parti Keadilan Rakyat webmaster, was arrested on Friday in relation to an article on Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Johari Baharum which appeared on his blog, www.jelas.info.
In a notice of motion filed at the High Court (criminal) registry on Monday, Tan said an order by magistrate Rasyihah Ghazali dated July 14 to allow him to be remanded for four days should be set aside.
Tan, released on police bail on Tuesday, is also asking for orders that are deemed fair as guidance for the concerned magistrate and others.
He named the Inspector-General of Police as a respondent in his revision application for the alleged actions taken by the police against him during his arrest.
At the High Court yesterday, DPP B. Sarala Pillai said she needed time to reply to the affidavit.
Justice Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah set Aug 13 to hear the revision application.
