PETALING JAYA: Former journalist Sidek Kasimo was arrested Thursday before being released on police bail.
Lawyer Siti Kassim said Sidek was arrested under Section 298 (a) of the Penal Code, for allegedly causing religious disharmony.
He was arrested at the Dang Wangi police station, where had been called in by police to give a statement.
Two weeks ago, Sidek was arrested under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for his comments over the death of PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Dr Haron Din.
Police had allegedly trespassed into the compound of his house in the wee hours of the night to arrest him, traumatising his wife and children.
They had also allegedly searched his house without a warrant while denying him his right to contact his family and lawyer after his arrest.
