COMMENT I do not feel sorry for my friend P Uthayakumar.

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/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
