RFS deejay in hiding after police questioning

 | June 2, 2012

However, the popular radio station presenter is said to be moving freely in Miri.

KUALA LUMPUR: Radio Free Sarawak (RFS) clarified today that its presenter Peter John Jaban was not abducted but is in hiding after “being frightened” by police questioning before he “disappeared”.

The radio station, known for being critical towards the powerful Chief Minister Taib Mahmud, said in a statement that it had received information that Jaban is moving freely in Miri despite being held incommunicado since Thursday.

The RFS deejay arrived at Miri International Airport two days ago and was expecting to be arrested after being detained in Kota Kinabalu airport, where his documents were photocopied and himself photographed.

But his lawyers managed to pull him out from a possible arrest as the police at the Miri airport did not receive instructions to detain him.

“This is encouraging information and we are concluding that he decided to hide himself voluntarily after being frightened by questioning at the Kota Kinabalu airport,” the statement said.

It added that it was assumed that Jaban would be wanted for further questioning by the Special Branch when he got into Sarawak.

It also stated that the police are now looking for him because of concern over his disappearance after he left the car of his friend who picked him up from the airport.

RFS said it is no longer worried about his immediate safety and will update the public of any new information.
