Azwanddin: MPs getting foreign funding

KUALA LUMPUR: Jaringan Melayu Malaysia president is asking Parliament to enact a new law - the Patriotic and Racial Harmony Act - which would stop foreign intervention here.

Its president, Azwanddin Hamzah, claimed members of parliament were receiving funds from foreigners. He declined to name them, claiming there were "too many involved to name".

He said he decided to propose the new law after exposing several issues concerning Suaram and its alleged funding by currency speculator George Soros.

He suggested that the new act should also prevent foreign incitement in local media, including internet portals.

JMM, he said, knew that foreign individuals did not want to see Malaysia have a strong economic development. "They just want to see the country in political turmoil at all times. They also want to corrupt the minds of our youth."

The government, he added, should also retract operating licences for media outlets and internet portals which were being funded by foreigners.
