There will soon be a clamp down on the Malaysian cyberspace.
All those news portals, blogs, facebookers etc better watch out.
Unless of course they just want to write about the latest fashionable handbags, how to cook pasta, jalan-jalan cari makan, etc.
This is from the blog of the new Communication Minister,
The CMA needs to be reviewed to keep up with the times
While Malaysia will uphold freedom of speech and the right to information, we must also protect Malaysians from libel and slander, plus character assassination. In no country in the world does freedom of speech include the freedom to lie and slander. National security and public order are also of concern and which can be jeopardised if there were no proper controls over what people do and say. We must, therefore, review the CMA so that we can strike a balance between not stifling free speech and continuing with freedom of information while at the same time protecting Malaysians from criminal acts that appear to have become the trend of late.
When I read that, I was like....hmmmm....they said the same thing in China.
Also, the part about "protecting Malaysians" sounds familiar...they said "protecting Koreans" in North Korea too.
I'm quite sure it's all because of the politics.
Part of the purge, I guess.
Quite a number of people, including those investigating the 1MDB mess had been arrested.
Well, doesn't matter.
I can always write about other things other than politics when they change the laws.
I can switch to travels or food or entertainment.
Maybe it's healthier to write about those things.
Definitely won't go to jail one.
It's like blogging in Singapore.
Write nice things only.
Singapore is a nice country....the DAP people always want Malaysia to be like that super clean and efficient little island.
They will definitely support anything done to make us more like the Singaporeans.
Okay, you all need to cheer up a bit on Sunday morning?
Here's a song...
