Govt to define insult to monarchy, PM says

Author:   |    Publish date:


KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today the government will have to “spell out” the action and words that are considered insults to the Malay royal institution that are punishable by law amid controversy over remarks against the monarchy.

Malaysia does not have any lese majeste law, unlike in neighbouring Thailand.

At the moment, our enforcement officers do not understand what is considered insult, so we need to spell out what sort of actions or words can be construed as insults.

“I have said before that Malaysia now practises freedom of speech.

With this freedom of speech, if you say something is factual, you cannot be prosecuted,” he told a news conference in Putrajaya earlier today that was also broadcast on his Facebook page.
