The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: A law­maker yes­ter­day sug­gested that the draft­ing of a new law to curb the spread of false news on so­cial me­dia be has­tened to en­sure that the Op­po­si­tion does not con­tinue to use the medium as a "weapon" ahead of the 14th gen­eral elec­tion. Tanah Merah MP Datuk Seri Ik­mal Hisham Ab­dul Aziz said the draft­ing of the law was also im­por­tant to en­sure that the Op­po­si­tion does not con­tinue to poi­son the peo­ple's minds by spread­ing false news. – Ber­nama
