MCMC probes Sabah online news portal
KOTA KINABALU: Police are working with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission and an Internet service provider in their ongoing probe into the online news portal sabahkini.net.
Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim said investigations were initiated after several police reports were lodged two weeks ago over articles relating to an oil palm land dispute.
“Several groups and individuals felt aggrieved by the stories published on the site and lodged police reports, prompting us to begin our probe,” he said here yesterday.
He said police were investigating the news portal under Section 500 of the Penal Code for defamation.
However, he added, police had yet to record a statement from the news portal’s editor Mutalib MD or other individuals.
