KINI ROUNDUP | Here are the key headlines you may have missed yesterday, in brief.
Najib put through court 'revolving door'
The prosecution withdrew three additional charges against former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak in relation to the SRC International case.
However, sources close to Najib later revealed that he was served a warrant to be slapped with the charges again today.
Najib is also appealing the decision of the High Court to continue with the trial scheduled to begin next Tuesday on seven other charges related to SRC International.
Marzuki flayed over fake degree
Deputy Foreign Minister Marzuki Yahya was chastised by the likes of Umno acting president Mohamad Hasan and Perlis mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin over his allegedly fake degree.
Bersatu deputy president Mukhriz Mahathir defended Marzuki, saying the latter was not appointed as a deputy minister for his academic credentials.
However, Bersatu strategist Rais Hussin said Marzuki should apologise if he had misrepresented himself.
Umno acting president Mohamad Hasan claimed MCA and MIC had been avoiding holding a BN meeting to evade questions from the press about a resolution to dissolve the coalition.
The Malaysian government is eyeing proceeds from the multi-million dollar sale of a stake in the Park Lane Hotel in New York, involving the US Department of Justice, to an Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund.
Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad will speak at the National Unity Day celebration in Penang.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
