KOTA BARU, 17 Sept 2008: Police today arrested blogger Syed Azidi Syed Aziz or better known as Sheih "Kickdefella".
Syed Azidi’s wife Bariah Ishak said her husband was picked up from their house in Demit, here at 5.05pm.
She said three plaincloth policemen came in a dark-tinted white Pajero and told her that they were detaining her husband and would bring him to Kuala Lumpur today.
"They said my husband was arrested under the Sedition Act," she said when contacted.
Meanwhile Kelantan deputy police chief SAC II Amir Hamzah Ibrahim, when contacted, said he could not confirm the matter as the Kelantan police was not informed about the matter.
Syed Azidi, 38, is the Kelantan Menteri Besar public relations officer.
He runs the blog "Kickdefella" and had once suggested that the Malaysian flag be flown upside down as a mark of protest. – Bernama
