(2 July, Ipoh) Dr Lee Boon Chye , Vice President Parti Keadilan Rakyat and member of Parliament, Gopeng slams Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak for latest crackdown on media freedom.
This follows the decision by Home Ministry to revoke the permit for “Suara-Keadilan”, the mouth piece of Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
Dr Lee was shock at the decision and it certainly showed the true face of Najib’s administration, despite the slogan 1Malaysia and people first.
The crack-down followed a recent decision to ban several cartoon series from well-known cartonist Zunar and stop screening of NTV7 program on Bakun hydro-electricity project preceeding Sibu by-election.
At the same time the Home ministry appears totally dump on Dato Nasir Safar’s derogatory and seditious statement on Indian and Chinese communities and allow Utusan Malaysia freehand to spread ultra-racism. “1 Malaysia” shows obvious double standard.
Dr Lee reiterates that Suara-Keadilan will continue to be published with or without blessing of the Home Ministry as it is the fundamental right of the Rakyat to have access to alternative information.
