I suffered racial abuse because of Raja Petra’s articles, says Sarawak Report editor
SARAWAK Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown faced racial abuse following the articles written by blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, prompting her to go to the police for help.
The editor of the whistleblower website told The Malaysian Insight that the articles also incited readers to hate her on religious and racial grounds.
Rewcastle-Brown recently lodged a complaint against Raja Petra in the United Kingdom. Police later warned the blogger to stop writing about her.
She told The Malaysian Insight that she would let the police handle the matter.
“I do not wish to elaborate on matters which are already being handled by the police, except to say that these posts extended to racist abuses and incitement of hatred on religious and racial grounds.
“This goes beyond the bounds of frequent libel on this site, which RPK now admits he is responsible for,” she told The Malaysian Insight via email.
She did not want to comment on the racial abuses but, instead, attached an article in her email to The Malaysian Insight, showing a June 29 report of Raja Petra’s allegations against her and Sarawak Report.

Bankrupt fugitive Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) warned to stop harassing Claire Rewcastle of Sarawak Report.
Clare Rewcastle Brown sends London Police to RPK’s house
Today, the Manchester Police went to Raja Petra Kamarudin’s house to inform him that a complaint has been lodged against him regarding the articles he has been writing about Clare Rewcastle Brown. The notice (SEE BELOW) was served on RPK and he was told that from hereon if he writes any further articles about Clare or mentions her name in any article then he will be arrested and charged in court.
RPK then asked the police about the articles Clare has been writing about other people, such as about Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Najib Tun Razak. The police said that has nothing to do with them and if the Prime Minister feels he is also being harassed then he can lodge his complaint with the London Metro Police as well.
RPK was warned that he ignores this notice at his own peril and if he continues writing about Clare or mentions her name again then the police will take action against him, which will mean he would be charged in court and will have to face whatever consequences of his action.
RPK told the police he is not going to stop writing about Clare or stop mentioning her name. The police told RPK he will then have to face arrest and RPK replied that he has been arrested many times before this for writing and one more arrest is really not a big deal.
Knowing RPK and how stubborn he is, he might just defy the police order and continue writing even if that means he will be arrested and will be sent to jail. Meanwhile, expect even more articles from Sarawak Report alleging that the Malaysian Prime Minister and his wife are thieves because in the UK they practice freedom of speech…unless someone lodges a police report alleging that what you write about him or her is putting him or her under stress and he or she cannot sleep at night.
UK police instruct RPK to cease writing about Clare Rewcastle-Brown
KUALA LUMPUR: Manchester Police yesterday served blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) with a notice to refrain from writing about Sarawak Report founder Clare Rewcastle-Brown.
According to a report by online portal Malaysia Today, UK-based RPK was told by police that he will be arrested and charged in court if he continues to write articles about Rewcastle-Brown.
In response, RPK pointed to the fact that Rewcastle-Brown continues to write about other people, such as Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
“The police said that that has nothing to do with them, and if Najib feels he is also being harassed, then he can lodge his complaint with the London Metro Police too,” the report said.
The police told RPK that Rewcastle-Brown was suffering from stress due to his writings about her.
“So, from today (onwards), if you want to read about her, you will need to go to The Third Force at www.thethirdforce.net, although she can continue to say whatever she wants about Najib and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor,” Malaysia Today said.
RPK had reportedly told the police that he will not stop writing about Rewcastle-Brown, and that getting arrested by the police is “really not a big deal,” as he has been arrested many times before for his writings.
