TMI editors give statements to cops over report

Police have begun taking the statements of three editors of The Malaysian Insider over a report on the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) Operations Review Panel (OPR) at Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur. The news portal's editor and chief executive officer Jahabar Sadiq, managing editor Lionel Morais and assistant news editor V. Anbalagan went in to the police headquarters at around 3.15pm. They were accompanied by The Edge Media Group's lawyer Edward Lee and civil rights lawyer Syahredzan Johan. Police are also expected to take the statements of two sub-editors at the news portal. The report published yesterday quoted an OPR member, who spoke on condition of anonymity, saying MACC should resubmit its investigation papers on SRC International Sdn Bhd to the attorney-general as there was enough evidence to frame charges against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  Access to The Malaysian Insider website was blocked yesterday afternoon by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for content that was allegedly a national security threat under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998. Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak this morning said the move because the report had caused confusion among people. – February 26, 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
