Former Umno Youth executive council member Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris, better known as Papagomo was arrested today for alleged seditious remarks made against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain confirmed the arrest that took place at the suspect’s home in Setapak around noon.

“Yes, can (confirm),” Razarudin was quoted as saying when asked about a video clip showing the arrest by two policemen.

He was reported saying the controversial blogger would be taken to the Dang Wangi distract police station for investigation and remand under the Sedition Act 1948 and the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

The remarks were allegedly contained in a video clip lasting two minutes and 46 seconds where he questioned the King’s decision to grant an audience to the founder of KK Mart stores over the issue of the socks which had the word “Allah” printed on them.

Wan Azri was also said to have claimed in the video clip that the ruler was the one who had given orders that Bersatu information committee member Badrul Hisham Shaharin, better known as Chegubard, be prosecuted under the Sedition Act for also questioning the granting of the audience.
