MCMC raids Malaysiakini office in PJ

The officers seize two computers to investigate a video uploaded on KiniTV in July of a press conference by former Batu Kawan Umno Vice-Chief Khairuddin Abu Hassan.
MCMCPETALING JAYA: The Malaysiakini office here was raided by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today.
The officers confiscated two computers, Malaysiakini reported.
The news portal said this was to facilitate investigations regarding a video uploaded on KiniTV in July.
The case is being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act, for alleged improper network use.
The video was of a press conference by former Batu Kawan Umno Vice-Chief Khairuddin Abu Hassan.
The portal said during the press conference, Khairuddin had criticised Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali, demanding that he resign for refusing to prosecute in the 1MDB case.
On Nov 6 last year, Malaysiakini was also raided over a report that a deputy public prosecutor was transferred out of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) special operatives division.
Ten officers from MCMC and the police had then visited the office and a computer was confisticated.
The raid today also comes in the wake of reports of leaked documents on the Open Society Foundations (OSF), started by hedge fund billionaire George Soros, in which Malaysiakini was mentioned.
Government supporters have accused the OSF of attempting to overthrow the government but Malaysiakini has stated it only received a one-off grant in 2011 for producing documentaries on its video arm, KiniTV.
