PM Rejects Proposal to Register Bloggers

Posted on 12th April, 2007

Finally someone comes to their senses and rejects the idea to register bloggers.

The Prime Minister announced his decision to reject the proposal to register local bloggers with the government.

He recognizes that bloggers can easily get around the regulation by using foreign servers and overseas blogging platforms. He continues to issue warning against bloggers not publish rumors or offensive remarks and said existing laws are sufficient.

How do one defines rumors? Are they views that are critical to the government policies?

I think there are more pertinent issues for them to spend their time with such as the problem of illegal immgrants in Sabah which is reaching a critical point. I am sure not many Malaysian realize this unless you’ve been reading the local Sabah newspapers.

    I normally don’t agree much to blog about what the Malaysian government is doing…There are lots of other topics. Those like Jeff Ooi probably asking trouble for themselves, 😀
