Ku Li rejects proposal for gov't to blacklist companies
Umno veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has rejected a call to blacklist companies that allegedly sponsored the Bersih movement.
"I don't think that is right," the Gua Musang MP told reporters when met after the launch of a book on a collection of essays, 'The End of UMNO? Essays on Malaysia’s Dominant Party', at the Royal Lake Club in Kuala Lumpur today.
"Anybody can donate to any cause, so long as it does not break any law or the constitution," Tengku Razaleigh said when asked for comment on the call first made by Awang Selamat, believed to be the joint pseudonym of Malay daily Utusan Malaysia's senior editors.
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.
