Zunar on Police Bail

I just read in Sunday Star (p N6) this morning that Malaysiakini cartoonist Zunar has been released on police bail. He was freed from the Sepang police station several hours after police obtained a one-day remand extension order yesterday. And Sepang police chief Supt Zahedi Ayub confirmed the 6.30pm release. According to the news report, the remand extension was earlier granted by the Sepang magistrate’s court to keep Zunar, whose real name is Zulkiflee Anawar Ulhaque, in custody for further questioning.
After his release, Zunar told newsmen at a press conference that he was taken to seven police stations. He added that he was first taken to the Brickfields police station on Friday, then to Petaling Jaya, Bukit Puchong, Serdang, Sepang, and finally the KLIA police lock-up. He was then brought back to Sepang yesterday morning, where he was questioned by the police.
“I want my books back,” Zunar said, adding that the incident would not stop him from selling his books. His lawyer Latheefa Koya said she would file complaints with the Bar Council and Human Rights Commission over Zunar’s ordeal.
Now where can I buy this book?
