KUALA LUMPUR – Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek today dismissed as untrue a report in a news portal linking the Conference of Rulers to the proposed implementation of the hudud law in Kelantan.
“There is no truth to it. Some people are trying to drag the Conference of Rulers into the issue.
“Everything that is published (in cyberspace) must be verified. Do not easily believe whatever is published, especially on the social media,” he told reporters after the presentation of the 2014 Excellence Service awards of the ministry here.
Ahmad Shabery also said that Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) would investigate the news portal report. The minister was asked whether the MCMC would conduct a probe.
The Office of the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal said in a statement today that a report had been lodged at the Jalan Travers Police Station to deny that it had issued any statement on the matter. – BERNAMA
