Malaysian ministers in fresh attack on bloggers

April 7, 2007 - 9:20PM

Malaysian ministers have issued fresh attacks on bloggers, threatening to take away their rights and accusing them of trying to overthrow the government, according to reports.

The assaults come amidst an unprecedented defamation suit against two bloggers and outrage from rights groups after a minister during the week suggested Malaysian bloggers may be forced to identify themselves.

Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin said bloggers should not be exempt from the same controls as the mainstream media, and accused them of using lies to overthrow the government, the state Bernama news agency reported.

"This is very dangerous as they are writing and taking steps to gain power," he was quoted as saying late Friday from Singapore.
