The Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak, has threatened to sue the online news website Malaysiakini for readers’ comments posted on the site “concerning his handling of the political crisis in Terengganu which erupted early this week,” Malaysiakini said.

It explained, in a report on 16 May on its website: “Najib’s legal action was initiated in his personal capacity and jointly with Umno through law firm Hafarizam Wan & Aisha Mubarak.” Najib, who is not only the prime minister but also the Umno president, had in his personal capacity issued legal letters to Malaysiakini yesterday, saying that failure to meet his and Umno’s demands within the stipulated deadline would result in a lawsuit. In a copy of the letter of demand, the law firm acting for Najib and Umno pointed to two articles published Wednesday, titled, “A case of the PM reaping what he sows” and “How much will Najib spend to keep Terengganu?”, reported a local media house.

The two articles were compilations of comments by readers of Malaysiakini’s readers on this week’s political crisis in Terengganu, where Barisan Nasional (BN) briefly lost its majority in the oil-rich state before three Umno lawmakers returned to the party.
