Malaysisk blogger sættes på fri fod

En af Malaysias mest kendte bloggere, bliver nu frigivet fra fængslet, skriver The New York Times:

In what lawyers described as a landmark ruling, a court in Malaysia on Friday ordered the release of one of the country’s best-known bloggers, ruling that the government acted beyond its authority in invoking a threat to national security.

Bloggeren, Raja Petra Kamarudin, var sat i arresten på ubestemt tid, anklager ud fra landets såkaldte “Internal Security Act”. Den lovpakke siger nemlig, at folk kan frihedsberøves på ubestemt tid.

Årsagen til, at Kamarudin blev fængslet:

[…] detained for comments posted on his Web site that the government said insulted Muslims and the Prophet Muhammad. He was also accused of posting articles that defamed the country’s leaders and incited hatred against the government.

Men nu har retten altså sagt, at han skal sættes fri.
