KUALA LUMPUR: The Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has blocked four websites found to be promoting and disseminating information about the illegal Bersih 4 rally, as at 6pm today.
“Thus far I was told four sites have been blocked,” he told Bernama when contacted here today.
The MCMC in its statement yesterday stated that it would block any website or news portal found to be promoting, disseminating information and encouraging the public to participate in the illegal rally as such action could be detrimental to the country.
Salleh said the MCMC was monitoring news portals to ensure that they would not commit the same offences.
“So far, no news portal was found to be promoting the rally, just more on reporting, so there was no violation of the law … there’s no reason for news portal operators to be worried,” he said.
Bernama’s attempts to access the said websites was met with blank a “server error” page with a note saying “the resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable”.
