After a long meeting with de facto law minister Nazri Abdul Aziz and attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail today, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin still held his ground that Section 114A of the Evidence Act 1950 should be reviewed.

“I maintain my position in opposition to Section 114A,” Khairy told Malaysiakini after the one-and-a-half-hour meeting.

“I never said I changed my mind. I couldn’t change theirs,” he also replied in Twitter to another user who claimed that the meeting had changed his mind.

However, the Rembau member of parliament denied that the cabinet has decided to reprimand him over his open objection to the controversial amendment.

“No reprimand at all so maybe your information is not entirely accurate or something happened today,” he said, referring to the cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak this morning.

EXCLUSIVE The cabinet has accepted a suggestion to reprimand three key BN leaders for their open objection to Section 114A of the Evidence Act 1950.

NONEThe trio are Deputy Higher Education Minister Saifuddin Abdullah, Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Gan Ping Sieu (left) and Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin.

Government sources told Malaysiakini that the cabinet made the decision at its meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin on Aug 15.

“It was suggested that the prime minister or deputy prime minister should summon the two deputy ministers and give them a warning because their actions went against the government’s stance,” revealed one source.

“It was also suggested that Minister in Prime Minister’s Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz should meet with the two deputy ministers and Khairy to hear their views, and provide them with the government’s explanation.”

A day before the meeting, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who was abroad then, had instructed the cabinet to discuss the contentious following a major online protest dubbed ‘Internet Blackout Day’.

However, the meeting decided not to review the amendment. The decision was later reaffirmed and explained by Nazri.

According to the sources, the cabinet was of the view that if action was not taken, it would jeopardise the government’s credibility and weaken the administration.

“The cabinet also noted that the trio have been openly issuing statements contradicting government policies.

“They should have convey their views through internal channels such as their ministers or political parties,” a source added.

The sources also disclosed that the cabinet had pointed out that disciplinary action had been taken against defiant members of the administration since the era of second prime minister Abdul Razak Hussein, but this practice is absent in the current administration.
