Jaz lan said the PKR de facto leader, who is currently serving jail for sodomy, was prohibited from communicating with the outside world without permission from the Prisons director-general.
âI am curious. Did this statement really come from @anwaribrahim? He is prohibited by Prison rules to communicate with the world outside without permission from Prisons DG. Will check with DG. @pakatanharapan_ : Pakatan will repeal âfake newsâ law,â Jazlan tweeted, attaching a Malay Mail article on Anwarâs statement about Pakatan Harapanâs (PH) plans to repeal any legislation against âfake newsâ.
Anwar said in a statement issued by PKRâs communications bureau that PH would set up an independent election commission and abolish any laws against âfake newsâ, amid the ruling Barisan Nasionalâs plans to criminalise falsehoods.
Parliamentary debate on the Anti-Fake News Bill, which proposes punishing creators of âfake newsâ with six years â jail, will resume on Monday.Source: Google News
