Malaysian Shares Fake News


KUALA LUMPUR: 31-year-old Abdullah Abu Bakar has been accused of sharing false news online in apparent defiance of the soon to be legislated Anti-Fake News bill.

“He was supposed to be here at 9 am,” friend Noor Azizah confirmed, “he sent a WhatsApp message saying he’s ‘on the way’ but I saw he just posted a picture of his tosai breakfast on Instagram!”

Abdullah later denied the fake news charge saying he should be free to publish ironic ‘on the way’ messages as part of his constitutional rights to free speech.
