Three men have been detained by police under Sectio
Police arrested three men, including a reporter from Suara Keadilan, earlier this morning. They were caught spray painting graffiti believed to be connected to Prime Minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor and the ‘Free Anwar 901′ rally.
The three, said to be journalist Sidiqin Omar, and bloggers Mohd Fiqtriey al-Haqimiey @ Kecik, and Ahmad Husni, were hauled up by police at about 6.30am for ‘spray painting’ .
Brickfields district police chief Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid confirmed the arrest of three men.

“They are aged between 26 and 29. They were arrested in connection with spray painting, that’s all I can tell you,” said Wan Abul Bari.
He said the individuals have been remanded and are being investigated under Section 506 and 509 of the Penal Code.
Section 506 is for criminal intimidation and Section 509 is “word or gesture intended to insult the modesty of a person”.
While it is still unconfirmed as to what the trio were ‘spray painting’, rumours are that they were caught drawing the “TTR 901″ code that has been seen around the city in recent days.
It is unclear if there is a single correct interpretation of “TTR”,  the numerical ’901′ however likely refers to the “Free Anwar” mass rally expected to take place at the Jalan Duta court complex on Monday.
The Kuala Lumpur High Court is to deliver its verdict on PKR de facto leader, Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy II case.
Four day police remand
Meanwhile when contacted, lawyer for the three and PKR Balik Pulau MP Yusmadi Yusoff told FMT that he was at the Bukit Jalil lock-up where they have been remanded for four days.
“They were caught while spraying (painting) something related to Rosmah, police told me its about Turun Tibai Rosmah (TTR).
“They were arrested based on a complaint by the police themselves.
“Section 506 is criminal intimidation but they are arrested for the graffiti. I won’t say more but these would be the points I would be raising in their defense,” he said.
Yusmadi said that he had also submitted during the remand proceedings that one of the three, Kecik, had health problems including difficulty breathing and fever.
Yusmadi said investigating officer agreed to ensure his medical needs were taken care of.
Meanwhile, Suara Keadilan editor Fazallah Pit said when contacted said Sidiqin’s action was ‘not in the line of duty.’
“While we sympathise with him as a colleague and friend. We are in the dark about his actions. It was done in his personal capacity and not in the line of duty,” he said.
