Display screens to counter allegations against Govt


KUALA LUMPUR: A network of display screens will be put up in public areas nationwide to counter allegations made against the Government, said Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Jailani Johari.

“For a start, this will be carried out in Kuala Lumpur through the Info2U programme.

“Information in the programme will be projected on screens put up in public areas along public transport routes,” he told reporters after launching the Info2U programme here yesterday.

Jailani said the Info2U programme was a collaboration bet­ween several government departments and agencies.

Among them are the Information Department, Kuala Lumpur City Hall, the Land Public Transport Commission, Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd and Prasarana Malaysia Bhd.

Jailani also said amendments to the Communications and Multi­media Act 1998 and the Commu­nications and Multimedia Commis­sion Act 1998 would be tabled in the Dewan Rakyat next month to address cyber crimes more effectively. — Bernama
