King: stern actions against new media for slander, lies and distortion of facts

The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin has expressed his disappointment that slander, lies and distortion of facts still prevailed in the new media.

Tuanku Mizan said freedom of speech was not an excuse for any party to demean others to the extent of inflaming conflict and inciting racial sentiments.

“At the same time, the authorities must take stern actions against those involved,” he said in his Royal Address at the opening of the third session of the 12th Parliament.

“All parties involved must realize that no religion condones such actions.
“We urge them to cease committing these irresponsible acts.”
