The police have arrested a member of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) to help in the investigation into an alleged death threat issued against Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, Sarawak CID chief Datuk Zulkifli Hassan said.
He said the 34-year-old man, who is a member of the Sarawak Angkatan
Muda Keadilan (AMK), was held at 9.20 pm Monday when he was at the
Kuching international airport with several PKR members to see off
Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) chairman Badrul Hisham Shahrin,
also known as Chegubard, who was returning to Kuala Lumpur.
The police had obtained a court order to remand him for three days, he said.
The suspect is believed to have posted on a Facebook account on Dec
27 a statement allegedly containing words constituting a death threat
against Taib, he added.
