Activist-lawyer Fadiah arrives at Bukit Aman for questioning over tweet

KUALA LUMPUR: Lawyer Fadiah Nadwa Fikri has arrived at Bukit Aman for questioning in connection with her tweet on Saturday's rally.

Accompanied by supporters, she arrived at the federal police headquarters at 11am on Tuesday (March 3).

The lawyer is being investigated for her Twitter post in which she urged the people to join the “Turun ke Jalan, Demokrasi Mati (Go to the Streets, Democracy is Dead)” rally on Saturday (Feb 29).

The case is classified under Section 4(1)(a) of the Sedition Act as well as Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act for wrongful use of network services and facilities.

When met outside Bukit Aman, Fadiah said it was not about her but instead it was about Malaysians who are disgusted about what is going on.

“I'm going in with my lawyers, ” she said.

Among others present outside Bukit Aman were Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir and other civil society leaders.
