Police to Probe Blogger Jeff Ooi.
NST says Jeff Ooi, owner of Internet blog Screenshots, has come under police scrutiny for allegedly inciting racial disharmony over a cartoon strip published in the New Straits Times.
This follows a report lodged at Brickfields police station on Tuesday. It is the second investigation on Ooi since his blog came online.
In October 2004, a Net surfer "Anwar" posted a message on Screenshots, which contained profanities.
Ooi removed the post and blocked the anonymous "Anwar" from the site, but it was too late, as many angry readers had already read the post.
Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik then directed an official investigation. The matter was later forwarded to the deputy public prosecutor.
Sri Kandeh says Malaysia needs nation builders. It has been too long we have suffered and colonized for 440 years by foreign powers.
Every single Malaysian must remember that only recently, we gained and learned how to manage our affairs ! And manage it well.
