Utusan Malaysia and TV3 Barred From PKR Convention

(From Utusan Malaysia)
KOTA BHARU 28 Mei - Akhbar Utusan Malaysia dihalang daripada membuat liputan Kongres Nasional Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) yang diadakan di negeri ini selama tiga hari, bermula hari ini.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Induknya, Abdul Aziz Kadir berkata, wartawan dan jurufoto Utusan Malaysia tidak dibenarkan hadir sepanjang kongres berlangsung atas arahan dari Kuala Lumpur.

Kongres selama tiga hari itu dihadiri oleh 1,500 perwakilan dan kira-kira 1,000 pemerhati dari seluruh negara.

Walaupun sebelum ini, Abdul Aziz menyatakan pihaknya tiada masalah membenarkan Utusan Malaysia membuat liputan tetapi keputusan itu berubah malam tadi.

Selain Utusan Malaysia, petugas di Dewan Konvensyen Pusat Dagangan Kelantan (KTC), tempat berlangsungnya kongres itu juga menyatakan TV3 Kelantan turut tidak dibenarkan membuat liputan.

Wow...Definitely no tolerance for Utusan.

Hi,

Utusan Malaysia will continue to fabricate News even if they are allowed in. Might as well let them Fabricate News out there in the Kedai Mamak.

Of course no tolerance since what utusan is doing is fanning racial sentiment,close-minded bigotry and racism. What do you expect? By now you should have known, for heaven's sake.
