On May 31, 2019, FMT ran a report titled “Man claims trial to threatening to punch preacher Zamri Vinoth”.
The report inadvertently published the following as its final paragraph:
“Zamri also has several criminal records for rape, criminal breach of trust and assault.”
It was never our intention to make any such statement, and its publication is entirely down to editorial oversight.
When the matter was brought to our notice, we immediately pulled down the report in its entirety.
The mistake is regretted.
We apologise to Mr Zamri for the oversight, and assure him that there was no intention to portray him in a negative light.
