KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 11 – Chinese daily Nanyang Siang Pau has apologised to Speaker of Dewan Rakyat Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang for publishing a cartoon deemed insulting to the two leaders. The newspaper, in a statement, said they apologised and admitted that the cartoon was inappropriate for public viewing.

“We have also withdrawn the same cartoon published in Nanyang Siang Pau news portal, eNanyang.my,” according to the statement. On April 8, the newspaper and its news portal published a cartoon featuring two monkeys sitting on a tree named “Act 355” while a group of monkey fight under it.

One of the monkeys on the tree dons a “songkok” and is labelled “speaker”, while the other one has a “serban” and is labelled “Hadi Awang”. The cartoon was published in the newspaper two days after Abdul Hadi tabled his Private Member’s Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 355 on April 6. — Bernama
