Govt now says study is on Internet usage only

CYBERJAYA, Aug 7 — With the government at sixes and sevens over a controversial plan to filter the Internet, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today clarified it is only proposing a study to “gauge the use of the Internet in a positive and safe manner”.

The commission said reports on the study has been taken out of context and sensationalised although information, communication and culture minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim confirmed this morning that authorities aim to police the Internet to shut out smut.

However, prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said later in the day that the government will not censor the Internet.
