Press Statement from DPM's Office on Malaysiakini's Article.

PRESS STATEMENT

The internet news portal Malaysiakini yesterday published an email purportedly from a ‘Najib Support Group’ containing a so-called Manifesto supposedly linked to Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Razak. Without any verification,

Malaysiakini has deemed it appropriate to publish the false contents of this email.The Deputy Prime Minister’s office would like to clarify that Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Razak has never issued any manifesto to back his bid for the UMNO presidency.

Malaysiakini report is therefore patently false and misleading.

Malaysiakini’s decision to publish the story is extremely unethical as they had failed to verify the matter with the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office prior to publication.The conduct of Malaysiakini is regrettable and unacceptable.

Certainly, it is an unfortunate display of negligence and lack of professionalism in news reporting. It is important for Malaysiakini to investigate the origin of the malicious e-mail in order for it to clear its name and reputation.Malaysiakini has apologized to the Deputy Prime Minister on this matter.

Nevertheless, it is our hope that Malaysiakini and other news portals, regardless of their editorial policy, will conduct themselves in an ethical and professional manner.

This false story is the latest move in what is obviously a concerted effort by certain quarters to tarnish the image of the Deputy Prime Minister.

Indeed, of late, ever since the UMNO Transition Plan was brought forward to March 2009, there has been a consistent and continuous effort by some websites to concoct and publish false and malicious reports aimed at discrediting the Deputy Prime Minister.

We hope the Malaysian public, in particular readers of these websites are able to distinguish truth from falsehood when reading the materials published.

see...the difference between a statesman and an opposition MP? An esteem politician, will make a clear press statement regarding an issue to clear rumours or hearsays, but does not suppress press freedom by suing the press left and right or supress free speech by suing anyone who said anything against themselves or their party, like some politicians... what is the world going to be when you get sued for even expressing yourselves. wake up Malaysia.

I have been asked to revive communism in Sarawak and we will be holding our first meeting in Mukah. Yes Mukah and right in the birth place of Taib Mahmud and also the place where our corrupt and terrorist BN in Sarawak was born.

We have enough manpower in our Ranks to give the Sarawak BN a good fight afterall the Tsunami of March 08 started in Urban Sarawak and we are now bringing our fight to the rural areas where BN think the rakyat can be bullied and bought.

The Penans will be armed by our group and we will start subsersive activities after this meeting targeting at most BN Politicians and that includes assinations of the key man and their families.

Anyone who support this cause please contact me at 086484225 and 0198884836.

Our first meeting will be held at Kpg Lintang Balingian, Mukah, Sarawak.

We are self funding group and only receive token donations from anti government activist locally and from Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand.

If you feel this government have been fair, do not contact us. We invite all opressed Citizens of Malaysia to come forward and support our cause.

Pemimpin pembangkang sudah bankrap idea dan etika, bagi mereka kerja kerja memburukkan pihak kerajaan sebagai satu perjuangan.

Kebangkitan Najib membawa maksud kemusnahan Anwar dan berakhirlah impian pembangkang untuk menjadi perampok sebuah kerajaan.

Hakikatnya, semakin galak mereka memperbodohkan rakyat, semakin pandailah rakyat itu.

Dah kekontangan idea la tu. Apa yang dijanji tak tertunai, setakat main cakap nak bagi popular dah tak menjadi, sekarang kerja main attack lah pulak. Eh, bukan sekarang je, dari dulu pun macam tu, dah memang kerjanya macam tu je. Politik murahan.

Stevan Gan has always been a dissapointment, but this time he'd gone too far..
Shouldnt anyone investigate what was in it for someone deemed a "respectable" journalist could have made from publishing such articles .. This is the sort of style Kalimullah Hassan when he was in NST?

when Najib becomes PM, the opposition's goal of becoming the government will be shelved

along with their Malaysian Malaysia concept

so they need to use the interim period to inflict maximum damage to Najib's reputation

one method is to LIE and repeat the LIES until doubts creep in. Done enough times, some will believe, since the wish is already there

Najib is accused of being involved in murder, corruption, abuse of power and the latest a Hindu?

SDs are the sacred truth?
doctored photos are the absolute truth?
now manifesto is the ultimate truth?

signs of desperation, if not hysteria

the sponsors may be running out of the green stuff

Steady Najib, you are seen as a threat to their mission, cool ...

Hahaha. Terperangkap dengan keadaan yang kononnya diperjuangan oleh parti sendiri.
Kalau nak buat dekat orang bukan main lagi. Tapi kalau diri sendiri yang terkena, idealogi dan perjuangan parti tolak ke tepi, yang penting nama sendiri, populariti sendiri kena jaga dulu.
Hah, rasakan!

The office of the Deputy Prime Minister did well on this one but not on the one to explain the Saifu photos....haha!

I thought the voice of the opposition like Malaysiakini, Harakah, Adil never lied, they always tell the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth. Opss!!! Sorry, that was the delusional world, occupied mainly PAKATAN supporters.
