SIK: The Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM) warned that those who continue propagating and spreading fake news, especially involving the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) will face stern action.
Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Jailani Johari said at the time when the government was going all out to address the spread of lies and fake news in the country, it was also found that several fake news were also being propagated by foreign sources.
“Latest, the KKMM has identified several online news portals which, in their bid to tarnish the image and reputation of the prime minister (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak), have been reviving the issues of 1MDB following the seizure of a luxury yacht by the authority of a neighbouring country.”
Jailani said this to reporters after launching the Kedah edition of the Negaraku: Connecting the Unconnected (CTU) programme at Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Ampang Muda near here yesterday.
Also present were State Information, Rural Development and Poverty Eradication Committee chairman Datuk Mohd Tajudin Abdullah and Information director-general Datuk Ibrahim Abdul Rahman.
