Malaysia considering laws to rein in errant bloggers


Please do aware that the the country’s Government may introduce cyber laws to prevent bloggers from defaming others.

Malaysia may introduce tough Internet laws to control bloggers and prevent them from spreading “disharmony, chaos, seditious material and lies” on their websites.

Deputy Science and Technology Minister Kong Cho Ha accused some writers of posting controversial articles to attract readers, but said moves such as registering bloggers would be difficult.

“We are talking about creating cyber laws to control those who misuse the Internet,” Datuk Kong said.
