Liew Vui Keong: Lokman's brother should not face prosecution for comment - Nation

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Liew Vui Keong (pic) says that the Attorney General’s Chambers should reconsider prosecuting the brother of Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam for insulting Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The de facto Law Minister said Azman Noor Adam’s case should not see the light of the day as Dr Mahathir was not offended by the statements made against him.

“It reflects how magnanimous our Prime Minister is. As leaders of the country and government ministers, we’re subject to ridicule and criticism by members of the public,” he said in a statement on Friday (Oct 5).

“The only caution is that any statement made against a political leader must not be defamatory as the law provides legal action to be taken against the defamer.

“In fact the law applies to everyone who has been defamed to take legal action,” he said.

Liew said this in response to the recent detention of Azman for allegedly spreading images which insulted Dr Mahathir on social media.

Dr Mahathir had also expressed his disagreement towards the action taken against Azman.

“It should not have happened because I don’t think it is going to affect me in any way,” he said.
