Erroneous article about MLA and deputy minister Razali Ibrahim
On April 14, we published a response from Switzerland's Office of the Attorney-General stating that it had not received a Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) request from Malaysia.
The report also stated that this contradicted Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Razali Ibrahim's statement to Parliament. This is incorrect and Malaysiakini has made amendments to the story.
Razali explained that his comments on MLA in Parliament on March 23 was in reference to Switzerland's request for MLA to Malaysia and not the opposite.
We apologise for the error.
Razali also urged those who had criticised him based on the previous report to apologise and make the necessary amendments.
Razali named blogger OutSyed the Box, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli and Parti Bebas Rasuah deputy president Khairuddin Abu Hassan as those who criticised him based on the erroneous article.
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.
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.
