That was exactly what Raja Petra told his interrogators who for the better part of two hours was "persuading" him to make a statement. When they failed to get a statement from him, they opened the interrogation room door and Pete walked towards us at around 5.55pm to a shout of Daulat Tuanku from a supporter and clapping from a group of bloggers.
When I arrived at BlogHouse at 4.00pm, Rocky, Nuraina and Tony Yew were already waiting for me. When we arrived at CCID at Bukit Perdana Marina was just walking out, as she was not allowed to be with her husband, unlike the occasion when she was questioned by Police and Raja Petra insisted that he would not allow his wife to be interviewed by strangers without his presence as her husband.
Within minutes of our arrival, the media people trickled in and in no time the entrance of CCID was a sea of activity around Marina. Bloggers sms-ed other bloggers. ShanghaiStephen and Eric Voon arrived, followed by Member of Parliament for Wangsa Maju, Yang Berkhidmat Wee Choo Keong. Last to arrive was Gus Gan of Fisherman's Wharf who had to replace a flat on the way.
The reason for this change of date was quite obvious. The mata-mata thought that this last moment summon of RPK would mean less media attention. The 5th estate mechanism showed their tongue to the authorities.
YB Wee, accompanied by Rocky attempted to enter the premises but was denied entrance but given no reason. No fuss was made because we knew that MP for Selayang, YB William Leong was with Raja Petra.
