CALL him a coward for running away from the Malaysian cops or for chickening out from facing the long arm of the law yet fugitive blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) is seemingly the one who is having the last laugh in the UK.
Most recently, the mercenary blogger with a Perikatan Nasional (PN) slant did a vlog by declaring that his health has improved by leaps and bounds after a therapy session at the supposedly Malaysian-own Osteo Mission – the therapeutic tit tar bone setting specialist.
“I’m RPK the infamous Malaysian blogger wanted dead or alive by the Malaysian government … I just wanna tell you that all these eight to 10 hours off blogging in front of the computer has ruined my back and neck,” declared the 73-year-old RPK in a vlog from Manchester.

“So, I came for treatment at Osteo Mission which is a protégé of Chris Leong (a renowned bone setting expert in Malaysia). Yeah, I feel great now so the Malaysian government better watch out for I’m now healthy and in fighting mood again. Bye.”
For the uninitiated, the editor of the Malaysia Today news portal was reported to have gone missing in 2009 after two arrest warrants were issued against him for being absent from court on April 23 and May 23 respectively that year to attend his trail for publishing seditious and slanderous articles.
Fast forward 14 years later, the once pro-Pakatan Harapan (PH) blogger has justified his sojourn to the UK as an act of imitating the action of Prophet Muhammad SAW who was ordered by the God Almighty “to migrate to places which permit freedom of speech”.
“And I adhered to the Prophet’s sunnah by migrating to England. Abidance of the Prophet’s sunnah is compulsory for Muslims,” he tweeted on the X platform (previously Twitter) on Dec 6. – Dec 14, 2023
Papagomo baru kena tangkap semasa buat TikTok live. Sebab itu Allah perintah Nabi Muhammad SAW berhijrah ke tempat di mana ada kebebasan bersuara. Dan saya ikut Sunnah Nabi dan berhijrah ke England. Ikut Sunnah Nabi wajib bagi orang Islam. pic.twitter.com/mHZkyKgPnX
