Protecting journalistic sources

IT has been reported that Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali is mulling stiffer penalties for those who ‘leak’ official secrets. The reason for this, according to him, is that official secrets are purportedly leaked and reported by the media quoting sources.  

The A-G was also reported to have said that journalists, who refused to disclose their sources due to their journalistic ethics, could be considered as collaborating with potential saboteurs.
