PAKATAN Harapan lawmakers said the government must not hide behind a fake news bill, and should either deny or take legal action against foreign news outlets if their reports on the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) are false.

Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin of PKR said 53 international news portals, ranging from The Economists to CNN and the Jakarta Post, have extensively reported on allegations of the embezzlement of billions of ringgit from state-owned 1MDB.
