KUALA LUMPUR: The decision of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to impose a ban on The Malaysian Insider was made following careful and due consideration on the impact of such a ban on freedom of speech and freedom of press in Malaysia, Wisma Putra said.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement Thursday night, that while Malaysia upholds freedom of speech and right to information, such freedom and right must be exercised responsibly and with accountability.
