Press Clampdown

I was being diligent and so I went into the MQA website ( to check out SETARA ’09. Okay, HELP University College is rated as “very good” and grouped together with the others such as Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, Universiti Utara Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Perlis, Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Inti International University, Nilai University College, and UCSI University – a grouping of 25 tertiary institutions in total.
Over the past few weeks, the Home Ministry had launched an all-out clampdown on all opposition party organs beginning with PKR’s Suara Keadilan, and followed by PAS’ Harakah and DAP’s Rocket. No government should arbitrarily prohibit publications and the circulation of information. And The Printing Presses and Publications Act (1984) should be abrogated.
