Don’t expect neutrality in news coverage: It’s the General Elections!



The following is NOT a genuine site!

There is a 2 after freemalaysiakini.

That is a rogue site. It is not Malaysiakini. That one is run by a pro-umno person to steal our stories. When we do corrections/ amendments, they don’t. So please don’t use it and don’t recommend. We’ve made complaints to McMc many times already. Sigh. (sent by a Malaysiakini reporter)

This is the real site. There is no 2.

China-style censorship blocking KiniTV videos
4:30PM May 2, 2013

Access to KiniTV videos have been restricted by local ISPs in what some technology experts have described as ‘China-style censorship’.

The two videos on the interview with A Santamil Selvi, the widow of private investigator P Balasubramaniam, on the events relating to the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder, are not available when accessed through most local ISPs.

Two independent investigations – one by Rizvan R and another by Sinar Project – have shown that the censorship that occurs when one accesses YouTube servers, which are likely to be hosted by TMnet.

However, the videos can be watched via YES YTL and Time Internet without a problem. Malaysiakini has alerted TM of the problem and are awaiting their response.

Stay out of politics, ISPs warned

CEO Premesh Chandran again warned ISPs today to serve their customers without any political interference.

“In line with official government policy and the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, telecommunications providers such as TM have a duty and obligation to ensure that their systems are not used to censor the Internet,” Premesh said.

“This is the second time we have been able to show that such censorship is taking place,” he added, referring to the restrictions faced by Malaysiakini earlier this week.
