Hindraf leader Uthayakumar fails in Sessions Court bid on sedition charge

By Super Admin

Kuala Lumpur, May 7 (ANI): Internal Security Act (ISA) detainee P. Uthayakumar has failed in his bid to get the Sessions Court to strike out his sedition charge on grounds that the consent signed by the Attorney-General was invalid.

Uthayakumar is charged with publishing a letter with seditious contents on the Police Watch Malaysia website (http:// policewatchmalaysia.com) at Menara Mutiara Bangsar, Bangsar between November 15 and December 8, 2007.

The letter dated November 15, 2007 was from Hindraf and addressed to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at No 10 Downing Street, London, The Star reported.

In rejecting Uthayakumar's application that the issuance of consent had been done with prejudice, Sessions Court judge Sabariah Othman ruled that the consent signed by the A-G was improper. (ANI)
