Fahmi to meet social media platform representatives in Singapore next month

KUCHING: The Communications Ministry will hold a meeting with representatives of all social media platforms in Singapore next month, says its minister Fahmi Fadzli.

He said the meeting was in response to the actions of Facebook's parent company, Meta Platforms, which took down the posting of a news report by Malaysian media about the meeting between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Hamas’ Political Bureau Chief, Ismail Haniyeh in Qatar on May 13.

"This meeting is for clarification on several matters, including the principle of media freedom that should be cooperated on," he told reporters after opening the National Journalists Day 2024 (HAWANA 2024) exhibition here on Saturday (May 25).

Fahmi said Meta's actions were unreasonable as the company should have been more aware of the matter.

"The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has also sent a letter to Meta to get an explanation from them," he said. – Bernama
