UPDATE: Wednesday Aug 8 2007
Marina had her "statement" taken down at 11.15am (at the Dang Wangi police station) and was out at 11.55am.
We were so relieved that it did not take that long.
We were relieved that she was not roughed up or mistreated. Not that we had expected that. But, you know, anything could happen.
Her husband, RPK, insisted on being with her while she was being questioned.
From what she told us, the police really did accept her response (not to answer their questions) without much ado. I suppose they had no choice as she cited the Syariah and her obligation as a Muslim wife to abide by her husband's wishes not to answer their questions.
She had also brought a Quran with her.
And yes, the police were only doing their job.
Personally, I do believe that the police wish that they don't have to do all this for the politicians.

My earlier post:
Let's hope it's just a chit-chat that the police want with Marina, Raja Petra's wife, when they meet her tomorrow.
She has been summoned to Dang Wangi for her statements to be recorded.
I walked (and still am walking) with Rocky and Jeff when they went to court after being sued by NST and gang. With Nathaniel Tan who was remanded for 4 days last month, with RPK when he was interrogated for about 8 hours, also last month, and certainly now with Marina.
Ahirudin Attan (Rocky's Bru) says it is intimidation. Read it here.
It's really alarming.
