  • If news not recognized by the government is fake news, then 1MDB will do no wrong simply because the government would not admit what have taken place. So the anti-fake laws is meant to stop Malaysians discussing 1MDB, and all the corrupt practices of the government. The law will authorize government corruption because nobody will live outside the jail if they ever say anything about government action. That law proves that the government plans to be corrupt with impunity. But when BN loses in GE 14, the law will have no protection against people who controlled 1MDB.

  • Would official statements by DOJ of USA on 1MDB fake news? If so then there is territorial limitation on the truth of news. It would then turn out that all news taken as genuine in Malaysia are fake news outside the country. By extension all official documents issued by the government including passports might be considered fake outside the country. The deputy minister has shown the real intention of Najib government to stop Malaysians talk about the most successful project of Najib in 1MDB.
