Home Ministry: Parts of Economist article blacked out were incorrect, misleading

PUTRAJAYA: The Home Ministry blacked out parts of The Economist''s article on the recent Bersih 2.0 rally for being incorrect and misleading.

Its Publications Control and Quranic Text Division secretary Abd Aziz Md Nor said the sentences contained incorrect statements and could mislead readers.

He said the decision to instruct the magazine's publisher to black out the sentences was made after consulting the police.

"We went through the article and found the incorrect statements.

"Subsequently, we told the publisher to black out those sentences," he said when contacted Tuesday.

Abd Aziz said they received the July 16 edition about a week before it went on sale for clearance, which, he added, was the normal procedure.

The article chronicles the July 9 rally, including the arrest of more than 1,600 people.
