[ENGLISH VERSION BELOW] Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil (Bersih 2.0) melahirkan rasa bimbang dengan keputusan Mahkamah Persekutuan hari ini yang telah mendapati portal berita Malaysiakini menghina mahkamah melalui komen berkenaan kehakiman yang dikirim oleh pembaca mereka dan oleh itu didenda RM500,000.

Keputusan oleh mahkamah tertinggi ini menghantar mesej yang mengerikan kepada semua rakyat Malaysia dan agensi media yang percaya bahawa kebebasan bersuara adalah hak asasi serta kebebasan media adalah bahagian penting kepada masyarakat yang bebas dan demokratik.

Denda RM500,000 adalah lebih tinggi daripada yang dipohon oleh Jabatan Peguam Negara iaitu sebanyak RM200,000 dan mereka perlu membayarnya sebelum 24 Februari 2021.

Bersih 2.0 menyeru 50,000 rakyat Malaysia untuk bersolidariti bersama Malaysiakini dengan menyumbang RM10 kepada portal berita ini.

Calling 50,000 Malaysians to donate RM10 in solidarity with Malaysiakini

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) expresses grave concern that today the Federal Court has found news portal Malaysiakini guilty of contempt for comments posted by their readers regarding the judiciary and fined the portal RM500,000.

This decision by the apex court sends a very chilling message to all Malaysians and news organisations who believe that free speech is a fundamental right and that independent media are integral to a free and democratic society.

The RM500,000 fine is much higher than the RM200,000 sought by the Attorney General’s Chambers, and it must be paid by 24 February 2021.

Bersih 2.0 calls on 50,000 Malaysians to demonstrate their solidarity with Malaysiakini by donating RM10 each directly to Malaysiakini.
