Police today raided the Sisters in Islam office in Petaling Jaya looking for a staff member over a matter involving her previous employment, says activist Marina Mahathir.

At about 5.30pm, there were at least seven plainclothes police officers at the scene and several others in a patrol car parked nearby.

Marina, however, later told reporters that the raid had nothing to do with SIS as an organisation.
