MCMC had no authority to block Steam, say legal experts
Malaysian Bar constitutional law committee co-chairman Surendra Ananth says MCMC has no authority to block online content. – The Malaysian Insight pic, September 9, 2017.
THE Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had no legal authority to block online gaming store Steam, lawyers said.
Yesterday, MCMC blocked Steam, the world’s largest online gaming store, for selling the game Fight with Gods, which the commission deemed offensive to religious sensitivities.
Access to the online store was restored today after the store withdrew the game from its shelves. Steam has two million users in Malaysia, with hundreds complaining at the MCMC Facebook page within hours of the ban.
Malaysian Bar constitutional law committee co-chairman Surendra Ananth said MCMC had “no power” to block online content.
“Any state authority must have a legislative basis to exercise its power,” Surendra said, adding that the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (CMA) did not have a provision that allowed the MCMC to block online content.
“Some have argued that Section 263(2) allows the MCMC to block content. However, that section only states that licensees shall assist the MCMC as far as reasonably necessary in preventing the commission or attempted commission of an offence,” he said.
“It cannot be read in a manner to empower MCMC to block online content. This would be a violation of Section 3(3), which expressly provides: ‘Nothing in this act shall be construed as permitting the censorship of the internet.’,” Surendra said.
Surendra said MCMC was not in a position to deem online material offensive or insulting, saying the use of Section 233(1) was unconstitutional.
“It is a disproportionate fetter on the freedom of expression. It is inherently contradictory for a constitutional democracy to criminalise the hurling of insults,” he said.
Eric Paulsen, executive director of Lawyers for Liberty, said the MCMC has been breaking the law for years.
“Authorities like the MCMC can do almost anything they want unless they are challenged.
“They have been blocking various websites like Sarawak Report and The Malaysian Insider. That doesn’t mean they’re acting legally,” he said.
Under the CMA, the MCMC was never granted specific powers to block websites, Paulsen said.
“But they do it anyway, on a whim, without justification, totally at their own discretion. This is of course highly arbitrarily and undemocratic.
“Such behaviour is a grave abuse of power and in breach of the ‘no-internet-censorship’ policy, which is protected in both the CMA and MSC Malaysia’s Bill of Guarantees.
Islamic preacher Zakir Naik is not being targeted for his religion, but is wanted by India’s National Investigating Agency (NIA) as a “terror suspect”, The Times of India reported today.
The enforcement agency denied Zakir’s claim that he is being targeted as part of the religious persecution of minorities in India.
NIA had written to Interpol, calling Zakir a “terror suspect” who radicalised Muslim youth through his “inflammatory speeches” and “spread hatred” among people of different religions, in its attempt to get him reg-flagged on the agency’s wanted list.
Yet Zakir is naik in Malaysia. Why? Because Njib is at the helm.
The Rohingyas are already in the fabric of the Malaysian society and they are prevalent in the Selayang area. In the case of the Rohingyas , I think the Malays should make an exception to take them in. The Malays ladies love them because the men looks like ShahRuk Khan and the ladies makes happy second wives and are very loyal and obedient to the Malay men. Once inter marrying them we have a better looking race and good looking Bumiputras.
Regime BN to import 100,000 Rohingyas.
A good voter base for Umno.
DAP people used to be seen as always supporting and defending one another only.
But not when they are in Pakatan Harapan with Tun Dr Mahathir as Chairman.
Lim Kit Siang has been speaking in support of Tun Dr Mahathir and PPBM, just as Tun has done so for LKS and DAP.
PH is now well respected, revered, even feared by their adversaries. The frequent expression is “Umno/Bn gigil lutut” in the face of GE14 with PH looming on one side. Hope Najib will not delay it beyond the stipulated last date.
Things are turning around with China being a superpower that even US have to pay respects to. The SCUMNO regime have already kow tow to them by pawning the country to them. Soon, the Chinese WILL BE TUAN and the Melayu THE KULI.
Just look at the cancelled marathon event in KL, just because it cannot attract 5000 PRC runners to participate.
Fat hopes, you sounding as Cina Bukit coolie pendatang descendant.
You don’t even understand what KETUANAN MELAYU is. It’s not Melayu is Tuan and you are Kuli, stu.
It’s what is inherent in the roles, functions and responsibilities of the YDP Agong, the Malay Rulers, the Rulers Council, etc. Without the consent of the Agong / Sultan, no PM or MB can take office and function.
And those roles etc are stated in the sensitive articles of the Constitution, protected by the Sedition Act. They cannot even be discussed or questioned, let alone be amended.
“it cannot attract 5000 PRC runners to participate.”
Wasn’t that designed to catch those PRC blokes who are staying illegally in this country? Expired visitors visas, etc.
“Heartless” is a word that can be used to describe the seleweng-ing of 1MDB and the songlap-ing of billions of Ringgit.
DoJ of USA has called those as “misappropriation of 1MDB funds and money laundering”. They have so far identified a total of US4.5 billion = about RM20 billion misappropriated from 1MDB. 1MDB was reported to have been indebted to the tune of about RM50 billion, borne by the rakyat because the wealth fund company has been taken over by the Ministry of Finance – together with its debts. Damn.
Now the DoJ are putting aside their identification of misappropriation and money laundering work, focussing on the criminal aspects of their investigations. Apart from the asset seizure suits, DoJ is expected to bring criminal prosecution cases to the court. Malaysians await with bated breath, anxious to see court action on the Kleptocrats, which will simply not happen in Malaysia under Najib.
Where is the frantic solo Cinabeng Ang, Chicken Pao?
Aiyaaaaaa….I tell chew arrrr, the MCA are leally wasting money one pay this fler.
He just make people hate Chinese only.
Glad to hear your opinion. It’s about the same as mine. We think almost alike.
“It’s blokes like this “Ang” bugger who bring down the image of the Chinese in this country.”
“We think almost alike.”
You “think” entirely alike, “Anonymous”!
“Fahai r uz” is your jinn fraudulent invention!
“Ang” an Idiot
The frequent commenter “Ang Tao Peng” in here is an idiot, much worse than Donald Trump as described in
In one poll of Donald Trump, the No. 1 response was “idiot.” This was followed by “incompetent,” “liar,”, “unqualified” …
me – always here to whack, wham, shit and sekel him
Red Bean old man “Ang” must be cursing his 79 years old luck. Finding his nemesis – me – always here to whack, wham, shit and sekel him each and every time he is nasty, seditious, subversive, anti-national, anti-the Malaysian Constitution and breaks the laws in here – legal and social laws, rules, regulations, norms of behaviour and blogging decorum and decency.
Which is practically all the time. It’s because of no upbringing. He was left alone by the pig sty as a child when his coolie parents toiled in the fields. Hungry, he tottered around, found pig shit, put it in his mouth, ate it. Time and again. That’s why to this day, when he opens his mouth, it smells pig shit.
There have been very very few of his comments that have not been replied to. Almost all requiring pointing out, one thing or another. Especially when seditious against other races or others’ religious beliefs. Him being an atheist, not believing in God, said he.
I don’t mind doing it. Pretending to be a moderator, said the bloke who persistently refused to accept the fact that a non-moderated blog like STL does not require one. I do the job out of civic consciousness. And I get a lot of fun and entertainment whacking, shitting and sekel-ing the old man “Ang”. And the likes of him – quite a few exists in this country.
Multiple nics “Ang Tiunama Peng”
This schizophrenic Red Bean old man calling himself Ang Tao Peng was caught commenting as Anonymous and was pointed out so. Since then he has tried to cover the multiple personality disorder aspect of his mental illness by accusing others of commenting under many nics.
Mad as he is, he won’t accept, and pretends not to have read the periodic explanations that I usually blog as Anonymous here and elsewhere, but when others also comment as Anonymous, I use the nic “a” to differentiate the different personalities blogging at the time concerned.
This mad bugger has been known as constantly lying , cheating and conning, as explained in his CV. That CV is reproduced as and when he blatantly lies, cheats and cons again.
It’s blokes like this “Ang” bugger who bring down the image of the Chinese in this country.
PS: He even agreed to his own comment, like he did on January 23, 2017 at 6:13 am and on January 23, 2017 at 9:33 am.
“Ang” Blogging as Anonymous Again, the proof –

“thinking he has won any argument”
“Must be the soothing voices in your tiny schizo head of your dear godfather Satan and his demons making you panic.
“I don’t give a damn about “winning” or “not winning amu argument” against a piece of pig sh it!
“What is so great about “winning” anything against a pig stupid and pig lazy Mugathir-bred rentseeker retard monkey?”
The above are clearly mad old man “Ang Tiunama Peng’s words, written under another name.
Fairuz worship Jamal Ikan Bakar?
You worship Abdul Hadi Awang?

Malaysian Indian criminal or MIC, a lot of them belong to this group supported and sponsored by KJ and group to be used on need basis. While there is no certainty that the MIC represents all Indians, we can now say, with the evidence at hand, that it does represent all Indian gangsters which includes parang-wielding snatch thieves, bouncers, ganja-pushing jaga kereta thugs and a variety of other petty criminals. Saravanan had his goose cooked in this engagement! It has been some time that the Subra gentlemen faction been gathering storm and force to get rid of SAMY VELU faction from MIC! Saravanan has no party position after having gone for broke for Deputy President! Thus, it is an opportune time now to drop him from BN candidacy like a sack of potato when time comes! That’s MIC’s gift to Indians and its effort of getting rid of thuggery!
‘While there is no certainty that the MIC represents all Indians ..”
Sure not. Many Indians are members of PSM. Others are Moorthy group.
“it does represent all Indian gangsters which includes parang-wielding snatch thieves, bouncers, ganja-pushing jaga kereta thugs and a variety of other petty criminals”?
Oh … interesting.
Ladies & Gentlemen. After the 14th GE, the dynamic duo will be kicked out by the Government subsidised INCOMR TAX FREE & GST FREE RM 2 INCORPORATED CHURCHES OF SINGAPORE & MALAYSIA.
