PETALING JAYA: The Sarawak Report website is accessible again, less than 24 hours after it was blocked by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). 

Access to the Sarawak Report was initially blocked by the MCMC on Sunday night on the grounds that it might undermine the stability of the country. 

The regulatory body said on a post on its Facebook page that the website was blocked after receiving numerous complaints from the public that it was posting unsubstantiated information. 

It also said access would be blocked until the special task force looking into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) completed its investigations. 

The MCMC had advised the public to be cautious when sharing information over social media, which could cause unrest and destabilise the country if it was false. 

The Sarawak Report website has reportedly been a main source of allegations of wrongdoing regarding 1MDB, and has published several stories on the government investment firm.
