Dr M Disagrees Over Action Against Critics



KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 – Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today he does not agree that action must be taken against any individual who criticises him. “I have informed the police about this. This law will be reviewed when Parliament convenes,” he said in a post on his Twitter account.

Dr Mahathir had uploaded the post with a link to a media report on the arrest of a man in Langkawi over alleged insulting remarks made against the Prime Minister and Islam on a Facebook account.

The Facebook account of the Langkawi District Police headquarters, which carried the news of the arrest, said the suspect was detained following police reports made by the representatives of several NGOs. The account also said that the suspect was being remanded until Sunday to facilitate the investigation. — Bernama
