Police have arrested The Malaysian Insider's managing editor Lionel Morais, Bahasa news editor Amin Shah Iskandar and features and analysis editor Zulkifli Sulong over a report on hudud related to the Conference of Rulers.
Police together with Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) officials raided The Malaysian Insider's office in Mutiara Damansara and made the arrests.
The arrests came as part of investigations after a police report lodged by an official from the Conference of Rulers last week.
They spent about half an hour checking an editor's computer, before proceeding to interview Morais, Amin Shah and Zulkifli.
Lawyer Syahredzan Johan, who is with them, said the investigations are under Section 4 of the Sedition Act and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
He said the three editors will be held at the Dang Wangi police district headquarters tonight and police will apply for remand tomorrow morning.
The report published on March 25 said that the Conference of Rulers had rejected a proposal to amend a federal law that would pave the way for hudud to be enforced in Kelantan.
The Keeper of the Rulers' Seal lodged a police report on March 26 to deny that the Conference of Rulers had issued any statement on hudud in Kelantan.
Yesterday, Kedah Umno Youth filed a police report against The Malaysian Insider and called for stern action against the portal over the report.
Barisan Nasional MPs also complained about the matter in Parliament.
Over the last two days, Umno mouthpiece Utusan Malaysia has carried several reports calling for action against the portal.
