How to access blocked websites the easy way. Yes, it works!

MCMC confirms TMI ban, warns portals to keep in line

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today confirmed that it has blocked access to news portal The Malaysian Insider, via Malaysian internet service providers (ISPs).

However, it did not mention how the portal flouted Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act, which deals with abuse of communications networks.

The MCMC in a statement said the ban was following “public complaints” and reminded news portals to not publish unverified reports.

“MCMC reminds news portals not to spread or publish articles which veracity has yet to be confirmed.

“This could invite confusion and cause unwanted situations,” it said in a statement.

While MCMC did not specify it, among articles published by The Malaysian Insider today cited a source as saying that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has “credible evidence to frame charges” against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

The report cites an unnamed MACC operations review panel member.

“The MACC investigators had collected sufficient evidence to prove a prima facie case against Najib,” the panel member told The Malaysian Insider.

As at 7.17pm, The Malaysian Insider is only inaccessible to readers via Celcom and Unifi ISPs.

The Malaysian Insider (TMI) joins the ranks of Malaysia Chronicle and Sarawak Report in being ‘banned’.
