KUALA LUMPUR, MON: May 26, 2008 By NST NEWSDESK
THE government does not plan to set up a special body to monitor blog sites and irresponsible bloggers, the Dewan Negara was told today.
Deputy Energy, Water and Communications minister Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum said this was because the ministry, through the Multimedia and Communications Commission (MCMC), has enough power to act on bloggers who are irresponsible.
“The MCMC can act against the owner, manager or the writer of errant blogs and take legal action on them if there was proof that they have broken the law.”
He was replying to Senator Sharifah Azizah Syed Zain at the Dewan Negara today.
