The petition to the Pakatan Rakyat leadership, the Menteris Besar, Chief Minister and the Excos of the Pakatan Rakyat state governments to honour their pledge to the rakyat to take the necessary measures to ensure and safeguard the freedom of the press and, to that end, to publish, print and distribute at least one state government daily newspaper in the Malay language, may be viewed and endorsed HERE.
Please give this effort your support and get everyone you know to do the same.
Remember the tabloid, said to be political, Kabar Era Pakatan, that had 3,000 copies of its debut and 3rd issue seized by the Home Ministry?
Malaysiakini has a report on that HERE.
I got a copy of the 3rd issue last week.
Sorry, this is no political tabloid.
It’s nothing else but a Pakatan Rakyat propaganda tool, and not a very honest one, at that.
If you, too, have a copy of the 3rd issue, you will note that the lead story, with the headlines, “Najib, Razak Baginda tersenarai’ reports that Razak Baginda received commissions amounting to RM3.7 billion from the Scorpene purchase contract.
I thought the commission was in the region of RM500 million?
I hope that the Pakatan Rakyat leadership have no illusions that Kabar Era Pakatan is anything than that : their propaganda tool.
The editor’s column, entitled ‘Minda editor’ in the 3rd issue, lends fortification to our call for an independent state government newspaper, without any delay.
