statement from nat

nat’s statement on his detention, both in english and bahasa, is now ready. go to his blog to read.

some interesting extract:

One of the officers questioning me that evening who refused to identify himself threatened to slap me and throw me across the room.


On Saturday itself, a senior officer employed physical means in an attempt to intimidate me into answering their questions. This included shoving me into a chair while I was standing handcuffed.


whoo!! police violence!

In my particular case as well, the government and police appear to be sending a signal that while irresponsible bloggers roam free, responsible bloggers who moderate their comments and put a name to their writing are more likely to end up as targets. This policy could not possibly be more ill formed and counterproductive.

whoa! frightening!
