MCMC had no authority to block Steam, say legal experts

THE Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had no legal authority to block online gaming store Steam, lawyers said.
Malaysian Bar constitutional law committee co-chairman Surendra Ananth said MCMC had “no power” to block online content.

“Any state authority must have a legislative basis to exercise its power,” Surendra said, adding that the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (CMA) did not have a provision that allowed the MCMC to block online content.

“Some have argued that Section 263(2) allows the MCMC to block content. However, that section only states that licensees shall assist the MCMC as far as reasonably necessary in preventing the commission or attempted commission of an offence,” he said.

“It cannot be read in a manner to empower MCMC to block online content. This would be a violation of Section 3(3), which expressly provides: ‘Nothing in this act shall be construed as permitting the censorship of the internet.’,” Surendra said.

Surendra said MCMC was not in a position to deem online material offensive or insulting, saying the use of Section 233(1) was unconstitutional.

“It is a disproportionate fetter on the freedom of expression. It is inherently contradictory for a constitutional democracy to criminalise the hurling of insults,” he said.

Eric Paulsen, executive director of Lawyers for Liberty, said the MCMC has been breaking the law for years.

“Authorities like the MCMC can do almost anything they want unless they are challenged.

“They have been blocking various websites like Sarawak Report and The Malaysian Insider. That doesn’t mean they’re acting legally,” he said.

Under the CMA, the MCMC was never granted specific powers to block websites, Paulsen said.

“But they do it anyway, on a whim, without justification, totally at their own discretion. This is of course highly arbitrarily and undemocratic.

MCMC to unblock Steam after banned game withdrawn from site

Popular online gaming marketplace Steam will be unblocked by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) after the portal agreed to stop downloads of the game “Fight of Gods” in Malaysia.

“The MCMC is committed to protecting the interest of (internet) users in Malaysia, and will not compromise with any quarter that defiles religions and peace of the various races in this country,” it added in a statement this morning.

The Steam website was blocked in Malaysia last night.

The MCMC block stirred an uproar among Malaysia’s gaming community as it denied Malaysians from buying games from the Steam marketplace.

It is estimated that there are over two million users of the Steam platform in Malaysia.

Hundreds of negative comments were posted on the MCMC Facebook page following the block.

Some commenters noted that they did not even know the offending game existed until the MCMC decided to block access to Steam.

Despacito (Slowly): Banned in Malaysia for its lyrics.

Malaysia has banned Luis Fonsi’s song “Despacito” on state radio and television, though it might be hard to slow the song’s record-breaking popularity.

The ban applies only to government-run radio and TV outlets, not to private stations or YouTube or the music streaming services fuelling the song’s success.

Communications Minister Salleh Said Keruak said the song had been reviewed and banned because of a public complaint that the lyrics are obscene.

Woman threatens Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officer with steering lock!

Her car was clamped because it was parked in a lot reserved for the disabled.

The woman, who was wielding a steering lock in a threatening manner, yelled at the officer that she could not find a parking lot and that she was buying food for her disabled husband.

I’m used to verbal abuse, says Subang Jaya municipal officer


For Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officer Nor Safuan Nordin, being the subject of verbal abuses is just another day in his job with the clamping unit.

“I get scolded and verbally abused every day,” he said.

Nor Safuan was thrust into the limelight after a video recording of a woman shouting and threatening him with her car steering lock, after her vehicle was clamped for illegal parking in Bandar Puteri Puchong, went viral.

As an MPSJ officer with 10 years of experience, including two years under the clamping unit, he has become immune to the various negative treatments he gets.

“People’s anger is something I face every day. (But) it’s part of my job and I know people will get angry,” Nor Safuan said.

And the 31-year-old understands the anger and annoyance.

“No one likes it when their car gets clamped and having to pay RM80 for the fine to have the clamp removed,” he said.

Facing verbal insults on a daily basis, Safuan said the steering lock incident was not the worst he had encountered.

“Once, when I had to seize goods from traders, I was threatened with a parang,” he said.

‘Steering lock’ lady in viral video has disabled husband – police

KUALA LUMPUR: The woman who held a steering lock while screaming at a Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officer gave her statement to police on Saturday night.

Serdang police chief Assistant Commissioner Megat Mohamad Aminuddin Megat Alias said the woman, in her 40s, had given her statement with her husband, in his 50s, at the district police headquarters at 11pm.

Megat Aminuddin said this was provided for under Section 112 of the Penal Code.

“We are completing the investigation paper and will refer the case to the Selangor deputy public prosecutor’s office tomorrow.

“The couple was called in for questioning and no arrest was made. Her husband has a valid OKU (disabled person) card,” he said when contacted today.

On whether the woman’s husband was with her in the car during the 1pm incident, Megat Aminuddin said police were still investigating into that.

The case is being investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.

Police probe incident of woman threatening council officer with steering lock

PETALING JAYA: The incident of a woman seen threatening a municipal council officer with a steering lock in a viral video will be investigated by police.

Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Megat Mohamad Aminuddin Megat Alias said the woman will be questioned under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.

It is believed that the shouting match erupted after the officer clamped the woman’s car for parking illegally in front of a restaurant.
ACP Megat Mohamad Aminudin said the car was towed to a depot in Puchong.

“The woman’s husband later showed up and paid the fine at the municipal council and apologised for his wife’s rude behaviour,” he said, adding that the police will still be investigating the case.

IRB denies setting a target of RM127 billion in tax-collection for 2017…

IRB denies viral message on tax collection targets

September 8, 2017

The agency says it views seriously any allegation that its officers had behaved unprofessionally in trying to meet their supposed targets from income-earners.


PETALING JAYA: The Inland Revenue Board (IRB) has denied a claim made in a viral WhatsApp message that each of its officers has been given a target to collect RM6 million in income taxes for this year.

It said no such targets were set for the audit officers, and that the board took any allegations that its staff had behaved in an unprofessional manner for such a purpose seriously.

“IRB would like to inform that the annual tax collection target is set by the government and it is made known to the public during the tabling of the country’s annual budget by the finance minister.

“Therefore, IRB’s initiatives and strategies to achieve the target set had been planned as early as November 2016, and implemented beginning January 2017,” it said in a statement today.

It said all its target initiatives, strategies and status were monitored by the ministry and the IRB’s board members comprising representatives from the public and private sectors.

Without revealing details, it said tax collections thus far for 2017 had shown that there would be more collected compared to last year.
The Whatsapp message claimed that the finance ministry has set a target for IRB to collect RM127 billion in taxes. It said taxes collected as at Aug 2017 amounted to RM69 billion which was 54% of the amount.

“Thus, keeping valid documents and compliance to accounting-related regulations are very important. Please be prepared to handle difficult tax officers during tax audit as they have a huge pressure to hit their KPI (RM6 mil per officer),” the text said.

New IGP: No link between shooting of ex-AG’s driver and 1MDB…

On 29 August 2017, two unidentified men shot and wounded the driver of former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail at the victim’s house in Ampang Perdana.

The FBI has cited the August 29 shooting of Gani’s driver as a possible warning to the former prosecutor not to cooperate with the US authorities.



PKR: IGP’s dismissal of shooting link to 1MDB ‘premature’

September 7, 2017

PKR’s Fahmi Fadzil says Fuzi Harun should not be making any conclusion yet on possible link between shooting of ex-AG Gani Patail’s driver and 1MDB.

PETALING JAYA: PKR has hit out at the new Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohd Fuzi Harun after he dismissed any connection between the shooting of a former attorney-general’s driver and the 1MDB scandal.

PKR communications chief Fahmi Fadzil said it has only been a week into the investigations, so it is premature of Fuzi to make any conclusion if there was a link to 1MDB or not.

“After eight or nine days into the investigations, without any evidence or suspects caught, it will be difficult for anyone to accept his response on the possible 1MDB link,” Fahmi said at a press conference at the PKR headquarters here today.

He then urged the police to look into the issue seriously as it may have negative implications among the public on Malaysian institutions.

Meanwhile, Fahmi highlighted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had informed that the shooting incident may be a warning to discourage witnesses not to assist in its investigations.

“This may be an effort to silence witnesses to come forward for the US Department of Justice (DoJ) investigations on 1MDB,” he said, referring to a Bloomberg report yesterday.

He added that Fuzi’s quick dismissal of the issue just adds further suspicion on the matter.



Shooting of former A-G’s driver unrelated to 1MDB, say police

Muzliza Mustafa

Bloomberg reported that in a federal court filing in Los Angeles yesterday, the FBI said several individuals in “certain foreign countries” were concerned about their safety should they cooperate in the FBI’s criminal probe into 1MDB.

The US Department of Justice (DoJ) has launched a criminal investigation into funds allegedly siphoned from 1MDB and has sought to delay civil suits filed in the past two years to forfeit more than US$1 billion (RM4.3 billion) in real estate and other assets.

Bloomberg said witnesses who had come forward to provide information had told the FBI that they were worried that they were putting “the safety and security of both themselves and their families at serious risk”.

Bloomberg said witnesses who had come forward to provide information had told the FBI that they were worried that they were putting “the safety and security of both themselves and their families at serious risk”.

In its filing, the FBI cited Malaysian news reports of local officials who had been arrested because of their purported role in investigating embezzlement in 1MDB.

It also cited the August 29 shooting of Gani’s driver as a possible warning to the former prosecutor not to cooperate with the US authorities.

Shooting case not related to former AG, say police

August 30, 2017

Ampang OCPD Asst Comm Hamzah Alias says investigations are ongoing into the incident in which the 40-year-old man was shot in the leg outside his house.

PETALING JAYA: Although investigations are ongoing into the shooting of Abdul Gani Patail’s driver, police believe the incident is unrelated to the former attorney-general.

“We believe the case is not connected to the former attorney-general,” Ampang OCPD Asst Comm Hamzah Alias told The Star when contacted.

He added that the victim, known only as Mustafa, was in stable condition and urged the public to refrain from speculation.

Ex-AG Gani’s driver shot

Two unidentified men shot and wounded the driver of former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail at the victim’s house in Ampang Perdana this morning.

In the 8.30am incident, the men reportedly approached the victim on the pretext of asking for directions before shooting him in the leg.

According to China Press, police are investigating the motive and attempting to identify the assailants.

Quoting sources, the report said it appeared that the assailants had wanted to send a warning, and therefore shot the victim in the leg.

The report, which identified the victim only as Mustafa, said he had been working as a driver for Gani since January this year.

Assaulted: Owner and Editor-in-chief of Tamil Malar Daily! By MIC leader’s men?

11 September 2017


Spat with Saravanan – Tamil Malar accused of mocking Hinduism

Tamil Malar has courted flak for publishing a photograph of Deputy Youth and Sports Minister M Saravanan fulfilling a religious vow during Thaipusam with a headline deemed as mocking Hinduism on its front-page.

The headline was based on a Tamil song.

In a statement today, MIC information chief VS Mohan lambasted Tamil Malar for “using religion to settle political scores.”

“It would not be a lie to say the report has insulted all Hindus. It is common for Hindus to pay penance to the Gods. This is what Saravanan did. How is it acceptable to publish a photograph of him doing this with a Tamil dance number’s title? MIC strongly condemns this.

“The police have spoken to both parties involved in the squabble and investigations are ongoing. Thus, by continuing to publish such reports, Tamil Malar has gone out of character,” he said.

Mohan further claimed the daily had always spun reports to demonise the government and MIC.
Meanwhile, a WhatsApp message being circulated is urging Hindus to lodge police reports against the daily.

“A Tamil paper is making fun of a Hindu guy who took Kavadi. What’s going to be your reaction Hindus of Malaysia? Are you going to silent because the joke is on a MIC guy?” read the message, noting that the daily could have used other photograph of Saravanan for its report.


Tamil Malar gives deadline to cops to act against fracas

Annabelle Lee

Tamil Malar has given the police until this Friday (Sept 15) to conduct “fair” investigations into the fracas at its premises last Tuesday, failing which it would withdraw its report and seek legal means to remedy the situation.

The newspaper’s owner Oms Thiagarajan told Malaysiakini that they are not happy with the police investigations (into the incident) so far and have no confidence in the police.

Thiagarajan, who was injured in the scuffle in which Deputy Youth and Sports Minister M Saravanan was implicated, said the incident had only involved two parties, and thus, should not pose a big challenge to the police.

“Either he (Saravanan) is lying, or I am lying.

“If the police want to arrest me, I am ready,” he said.

Thiagarajan had previously made a police report, alleging he was punched in the face by a group of men who have mobbed him at the daily’s office last Tuesday.
Saravanan has, however, denied involvement in the incident, claiming that the fight had begun before he arrived and he had showed up only to “break up” the fight.

The daily has also previously voiced dissatisfaction with the police’s classification of the incident as “riot”.

6 September 2017


Daily claims fracas started after Saravanan arrived

Annabelle Lee

Tamil Malar legal advisor K Saraswathy has claimed that the scuffle outside the daily’s office in Kuala Lumpur erupted after Deputy Youth and Sports Minister M Saravanan arrived.

This contradicted Saravanan’s claim that the fracas started before he was there and that he had told everyone to leave.

Saraswathy produced closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage to back up her claim. However, Saravanan’s face was not visible.

“As you can see, there was only one security guard at the door leading up to the office. I stood next to him together with (Tamil Malar owner) Oms Thiagarajan when Saravanan came at 11.56am.

“Oms was speaking to him. I asked him (Saravanan) why he brought all these people to my premises but he was rude to me,” she claimed when met at her office this afternoon.

Based on the footage, Saraswathy claimed the fight started at 11.57am when a man turned over the security guard’s table and chair.

“I suspect that was the ‘signal’ (for the fight). Saravanan just stood by while the fight happened.

“And then at 11.59am, Saravanan’s long-time assistant and driver snatched my phone and threw it on the floor,” she alleged.

Eyewitnesses claim that up to 80 men, some clad in “MIC Taskforce” shirts, had been involved in the fight. Oms was punched and had his shirt torn after allegedly engaging in an argument with Saravanan, while photographer S Shanmugam was slapped in the face.

Saravanan, who is also the Federal Territory MIC chief, has maintained that he was not responsible for the scuffle, and had only showed up to break up the fight.
Saraswathy said yesterday’s incident was the third time this year Saravanan has appeared at Tamil Malar’s office.

“Twice he has brought ‘gangsters’ with him. But yesterday was the first time we were physically hit. Things like this scare and intimidate my staff,” she said.



DAP wants PM to condemn attack, demands apology from Saravanan

Annabelle Lee

DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang has asked Deputy Youth and Sports Minister M Saravanan to apologise over his alleged involvement in a scuffle at a Tamil daily’s office on Tuesday.

“MIC President Dr S Subramaniam must also take a stand and condemn what happened.

“I call upon the Prime Minister (Najib Abdul Razak) to condemn this before he goes to the White House next week, because if you allow gangsterism in one area, it will spread to other areas.

“He (Najib) should ask Saravanan if this is an example a deputy minister should set,” Lim told a press conference at the Tamil Malar office in Kuala Lumpur today.


Daily’s boss, top editor ‘assaulted’, deputy minister claims ‘no such thing’

Annabelle Lee

A police report was lodged claiming that a group of men linked to Deputy Youth and Sports Minister M Saravanan had assaulted the owner of a Tamil daily and its editor-in-chief.

However, the MIC leader denied that such an incident occurred.

“I deny it totally, no such incident happened.

“In the last two days, Tamil Malar had been publishing fake news about Federal Territory MIC and today, some MIC Youth boys wanted to clarify the issue (with the newspaper).

“They had an argument on the streets, they were pushing each other but it was not a serious attack,” Saravanan told Malaysiakini.

Saravanan, who is Federal Territory MIC chief, said he arrived at the scene this morning after being informed of the scuffle and had “asked everyone to go home”.

Malaysiakini learnt that both sides had filed reports with the Dang Wangi district police headquarters.

Met at Tamil Malar‘s office in Kuala Lumpur, journalist C Christ claimed he witnessed the daily’s owner Oms Thiagarajan and editor-in-chief K Saraswathy being assaulted.

“My boss (Oms) was arguing with Saravanan when I walked towards him, and then a member of Saravanan’s group wearing a T-shirt saying ‘MIC Taskforce’ punched my boss.

“There was a fight and they even tore my boss’ shirt.

“And they snatched my editor-in-chief’s (Saraswathy) phone because she was taking photographs.

“One of our photographers named Shan was also slapped. They grabbed his camera.

“The whole thing took about 30 minutes,” Christ relayed to Malaysiakini, adding that there had been 70 to 80 young men involved.
The daily had on Sept 3 published an article with the headline “Where is the rental money collection?” on its front page.

It was a report on the Selangor MIC annual general meeting (AGM), where MIC Kota Raja chief VT Rajen had asked about the absence of rental payment receipts for the Federal Territory MIC building, explained N Nandini, the Tamil Malar journalist who wrote it.

Malaysiakini understands that the building belongs to the party but Federal Territory MIC, as the tenant, was required to pay rent for it every month.

Saravanan’s response was published today, in which he had expressed his outrage over how the paper had asked about his division’s accounts.

MIC leader brought gangsters beat up a Tamil paper GM & staffs for exposing him in theft of party rental money.



MIC leader and deputy minister brings gangster to media office and beats up General Manager and staff

Gangsters today visited a Tamil news daily office and beat up their staff over a expose made about an MIC leader.

Tamil Malar, had exposed MIC Wilayah state chairman Datuk M. Saravanan for stealing from the rental collection of the state MIC building.

This infuriated the MIC leader who is also Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, to the point where he decided to bring gangsters to the Tamil Malar office.

Minutes after arriving Saravanan, his gangsters and some MIC CWC members went to Tamil Malar and assaulted the General Manager Saraswathy with punches and slaps.

The gangsters then directed their violence towards the owner of the paper, Oms Thiagarajan.

The chaos left a bloody situation where both the GM, owner and some staff were left bleeding, injured and even suffered some broken teeth.

The incident is a major blow to the credibility of Barisan Nasional, where a woman reporter cum General Manager of a daily newspaper was attacked mercilessly by the politician and his goons.

Drastic and immediate action should be taken for such a heinous attack on a media practitioner and their staff.
I urge National Union of Journalists Malaysia (NUJ) to also bring this up and call for immediate action as this is blatant physical attack due to a media expose.

This also serves as a U-turn to any ground made in the country for press freedom and the protection of media practitioners.

Barisan Nasional should also take action against this leader as he is bringing shame to the party and coalition.

It seems Saravanan is going back to his old ways “Ganja Saravanan” of being a gangster, but beating up a woman could be his most disrespectable act yet.

Siti Nurhaliza to stand for Bersatu against Najib in Pekan? If only it were true!

Bersatu fielding Siti Nurhaliza in Pekan? Fake news, party says


A rumour is spreading that Umno-splinter group Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) has found a candidate to take on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in Pekan.

The candidate? None other than megastar Siti Nurhaliza.

Or so some would like to believe. Bersatu, however, says it is not true.

“Fake news,” Bersatu strategist Rais Hussin told Malaysiakini in a text message.

He was responding to an election style poster featuring Siti Nurhaliza as a Bersatu candidate for the Pekan parliament seat.

The poster is making the rounds on social media, and has even been shared by pro-administration Facebook group, Friends of BN.

Sin Chew Daily reports that Siti Nurhaliza’s manager had “no comment” when asked about the poster.

It would not have been the first time a pop singer has been fielded by the opposition in elections.

The Twitter King’s unfinished business

September 6, 2017

Deaths in custody and the disappearances of Pastor Raymond Koh and a host of others are just some of Khalid Abu Bakar’s unfinished business.


In his farewell speech, Khalid said that he had no unfinished business.

How can that be when there is much that his successor still has to correct?
The badge Khalid once wore, is symbolic. It carries a heavy responsibility. The job of IGP can be rewarding, but only if it is carried out without fear or favour. The IGP’s ultimate task is to protect good people and to lock up the bad ones. His main responsibility is to make Malaysia safe, and not arbitrarily arrest opposition politicians, social activists, social media users and cartoonists.

Two memorable incidents occurred, when Khalid was the Chief Police Officer for Selangor, and before he became the IGP. The death in custody of A Kugan, whom the PDRM said died of asthma and “sudden death”. The brutal shooting of teenager Aminulrasyid Amzah, because he took his sister’s car for a joy ride, is another travesty of justice.

Khalid was in contempt of court, when he ignored a Court order to find the missing daughter of Indira Gandhi, and arrest the estranged former husband and convert, Riduan Abdullah, who had kidnapped their daughter. Khalid cannot use shariah law as an excuse, for inaction.

When ushering in the New Year in 2014, Khalid said he welcomed the re-introduction of the ISA because he believed it would improve internal security and public order.

How does he explain the unfinished business of the disappearances of Pastor Raymond Koh, Amri Che Mat, Pastor Joshua Hilmy and his wife Ruth?
As we welcome the new IGP, we would like to reiterate that the Malaysian public is not the enemy. We wish to clean-up our police force, as we are alarmed that certain policemen are on good terms with gang members, who are involved in illegal gambling and prostitution syndicates.

Amongst other things, we hope that under the leadership of the new IGP, there will be an end to custodial deaths, and the speedy implementation of an independent police commission to improve justice and police accountability.

Helmet-wearing robbers storm into goldsmith shop, cart away bags of jewelleries


RAWANG: Six armed men robbed a goldsmith shop inside a shopping mall in Persiaran Anggun here, this evening.

The suspects, all wearing helmets, barged into the shop, located only about 100m from one of mall’s entrances at about 6.45pm.

One of the suspects fired a shot into the air before the men started smashing the display panels and sweeping the jewelleries into their bags.

They then made off with the stolen loot.

Gombak police chief Assistant Commissioner Ali Ahmad said no one was injured in the incident.

“The unidentified suspects were armed with a pistol and two hammers. They smashed four display panels before they fled with the bags of jewelleries.

“During the incident, four workers and two customers were inside the shop, but all six were unharmed,” he said when contacted today, adding that the losses were still undetermined.

Ali said the closed-circuit television footage retrieved from the premises would be scrutinised.
