ELECTORAL watchdog Bersih 2.0 has been let off the hook for breaking the embargo on the Sabah constituency redelineation report.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong said the government had no intention of taking action against them.

He said the report was debated in the Sabah state assembly in 2016.

“The information in the report is not a secret ... so I don’t think we need to take any action,” he said at the Parliament lobby.

The Bersih 2.0 steering committee said it was “left with no choice” but to expose the report after “its call on July 9 for the embargo to be lifted was ignored”.

It has offered to pay the RM1,000 fine to the Speaker’s office for breaking the embargo.
