Rais: Cabinet firm on Sec 114A, but will study it
The Cabinet is "carefully studying" Section 114A of the Evidence Act 1950 which is much discussed in cyberspace, in line with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's directive.
Information, Communications and Culture Minister Rais Yatim said today the government held a firm stand on the matter but so far, there were no plans to make new amendments to the Act.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
