Modified 18 Nov 2016, 2:19 pm

A team of police officers and men from the federal police headquarters at Bukit Aman detained DAP's Seremban MP Anthony Loke at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur just now.

Loke told Malaysiakini that according to the police, he is being investigated under the Sedition Act, for his speech made at the Pakatan Harapan Convention last Saturday, which called for the removal of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to restore the country's sovereignty.

However, Loke said, he is not aware which part of the speech has been found to be problematic.
