INVITATION TO MEDIA CONFERENCE 5 February 2001
PRM TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION ON HOME MINISTRY
Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) has applied for a publication permit from the
Ministry of Home Affairs for its organ “Suara PRM” quite some time ago.
Subsequently, several reminders have been sent to the relevant department in the Home Ministry. However, despite the long delay, the Home Ministry have neither approved the application nor responded to PRM's reminders. As a result, PRM have decided to take legal action against the Home Ministry in respect of this matter.
PRM is also very concerned with the increasing encroachment on the right to freedom of expression as evidenced by, inter alia, the denial or restriction of publication permits to publications such as Berita KeADILan, Detik, Wasilah and Harakah. Hence, PRM will convene a roundtable meeting together with Barisan Alternatif and other affected groups to discuss this serious problem.
Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) will hold a media conference to announce and clarify the above matters. The details of the media conference are asfollows:
Date : 6 February 2001 (Tuesday)
Venue : Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) Headquarters
42 Jalan Masjid (3/69), 46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Time : 11:00 a.m.
We hope that reporters/journalists from your organisation will attend this media conference to ensure that these important matters are reported accordingly.
Organising Secretary, PRM
