THE Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is investigating if The Malaysian Insight breached any laws in its reports that allegedly insulted Prime Minister Najib Razak.
However, Salleh Said Keruak, the minister in charge of MCMC, did not specify the laws under which the website would be investigated.
“I also heard the Penang Umno delegate’s speech (about The Malaysian Insight),” the communications and multimedia minister told reporters on the sidelines of the Umno general assembly.
He confirmed that MCMC had received a report, adding that if the website had breached any laws, the report would be sent to the relevant authorities for further action.
Yesterday, Johor delegate Haliza Abdullah made a similar statement in her speech.
Today, Nashrol told Umno members that such attacks must not be allowed to continue.
However, he did not specify which articles were insulting to the prime minister or party leadership.
Furthermore, no complaints have ever been made to The Malaysian Insight on such allegations.
Nasrol also said The Malaysian Insight was owned by Faridah Begum.
Faridah is the sister of The Malaysian Insight editor/managing director Jahabar Sadiq and the wife of Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali.
