KARPAL SINGH TO BE CHARGED FOR SEDITION

Karpal Singh, the Member of Parliament for Bukit Gelugor and DAP Chairman, will be charged in the Jalan Duta lower court under Section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act for his alleged threat to sue the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah for acting beyond his powers and consenting to the appointment of Datuk Dr Zambry Kadir as the new Perak Mentri Besar which was reported to have been uttered on 6 February 2009.

Karpal Singh's daughter Sangeep Kaur Deo confirmed that her father was served with a notice by a policeman on Monday to be present at the Jalan Duta court at 9am on Tuesday.

Another swift action by the UMNO-led Barisan Nasional government when many old, serious and important cases are still pending investigation.
