KUALA LUMPUR - Dewan Rakyat secretary Datuk Roosme Hamzah and Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia have successfully struck out a suit by Petaling Jaya Selatan MP Hee Loy Sian for allegedly rejecting 1MDB-related questions in Parliament.

High Court (Appellate and Special Powers) judge Justice Kamaludin Said made the order in chambers in the presence of all parties Monday.

Hee's counsel N. Surendran said that Justice Kamaludin granted the application by Roosme and Pandikar to strike out his client's suit but did not provide any grounds for the decision.

"We will file an appeal immediately," he said.

Hee is seeking a declaration that the decision to disallow two questions addressed to the Prime Minister and Home Minister on 1MDB and businessman Jho Low was unconstitutional.



KUALA LUMPUR - The High Court will on Thursday give its decision on an application to strike out a suit by moderation advocate Mohamed Tawfik Ismail, who sought to challenge PAS' Private Member's Bill.

The Private Member's Bill, better known as RUU355, seeks to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 to give the court the power to mete out harsher punishments.

Tawfik's counsel Rosli Dahlan told reporters this after meeting High Court (Appellate and Special Powers) judge

KOTA BARU - The Government is looking into introducing laws to curb fake news, which is a threat to political stability and public order, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said the move was necessary because the people could be instigated to hate the Government or commit uprisings due to the influence of fake news.

“We don’t want fake news to spread. This does not mean we control the Internet. The Internet is free, but the freedom must exist with elements of accountability,”

KUALA LUMPUR - MCA today revealed further discrepancies involving the multi-billion ringgit Penang cross-channel undersea tunnel project.

Its deputy president, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, said any changes to a project that was awarded by a state government needed to be reverted back to the latter, especially if it involved shareholdings.
