Let’s brace for another roller coaster ride of Malaysian politics. It’s getting dirtier even though we have Mr Clean up there. Today the police hauled up Anwar just in front of his house in Bukit Segambut.

Follow suit will be Raja Petra – a popular blogger and editor of Malaysia Today. He is expected to be charged Thursday with criminal defamation in relation to his statutory declaration on the murder of Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaaribuu.

The Malaysia Today editor has been ordered to report to the ninth floor of the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters at 10am Thursday and he would then be taken to the Kuala Lumpur court complex in Jalan Duta, according to a posting on his website.

In his June 18 declaration, Raja Petra claimed to have knowledge that two lieutenant colonels and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor were present when the body of Shaaribuu was blown up on Oct 19, 2006.
