Raja Petra ordered to remove three articles regarding Robert Kuok from his Malaysia Today website.
DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang yesterday asked the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) if it will order the removal of “false” articles against him published in blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin’s website Malaysia Today.
The UK-based blogger has removed three articles regarding tycoon Robert Kuok and his alleged political funding activities following MCMC’s instructions.
The DAP parliamentary leader pointed out that he too was the subject of numerous false allegations published in Malaysia Today.
“I have been a victim of Raja Petra Kamaruddin in umpteenth articles on Malaysia Today, making all sorts of dastardly and preposterous charges against me, like I have received over a billion ringgit from Israeli sources, that I funded news portal The Malaysian Insight with RM40 million and that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had given me RM1 billion so that I would agree to the admission of Mahathir’s Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) into Pakatan Harapan.
“This will be a test as to whether the MCMC is an independent, impartial and professional organisation,” Lim said.
