THIS site gives Anwar Ibrahim's side of the story in the political, legal and ethical imbroglio that has followed his sacking, in early September 1998, from the Government and from the United Malays National Organisation, the dominant party in the ruling coalition in Malaysia. If you are interested in the views and arguments of those opposed to him, click on the word "EXIT" below and start your search. Better still, subscribe to these newspapers: The New Straits Times, The Malay Mail, Berita Harian, Utusan Malaysia, The Star and The Sun, and watch the news on Malaysian TV. If you are interested in both sides of the story, try one of the Malaysian-based Usenet groups, such as soc.culture.malaysia, which has become heavily subscribed since Anwar's sacking and which offers opinions from a wide spectrum of political beliefs and intelligence levels.
We applaud Information Minister Mohamad Rahmat for his assurance, given on September 23, that the Malaysian Government respected press freedom and would not attempt to censor the Internet.
