Zunar Claims Further Harassment At Hands Of Malaysian Police

Zunar sent out a press release about a sales assistant handling online sales of his latest book being called into a police station over issues related to selling the cartoonist's new book, Sapuman, Man Of Steal. You can get an idea of what's being claimed through that initial link. Zapiro is currently facing charges under Malaysia's Sedition Act in an oft-delayed trial, so a further charge seems like it would have to be linked into that particular bit of seriousness. The idea that anything Zunar does would cause the kind of reaction that would even raise itself up to serious investigative work by authorities seems absurd, but here we are.
