MCMC said it

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysia Today portal has been instructed by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to remove three articles it had published about billionaire Robert Kuok.

The portal was told to remove the articles by 10am Tuesday (March 6) and the portal published the email it received from MCMC on its site on Monday (March 5).

The email stated that the MCMC had received complaints regarding the articles.

The articles that were ordered to be removed were "Robert Kuok wants Chinese rule in Malaysia", "Malaysian Insight funder fingered" and "Robert Kuok's last chance at changing the government".

"Based on the complaints, MCMC has looked into them and found that the articles contravened Section 233 of the MCMC Act 1998," said the commission.

It also urged the portal to be more conscious in ensuring that it does not publish news articles that go against the country’s laws.
