Malaysiakini seeks public's help to raise RM500k after contempt conviction
[Image: 1253d0ab614a77a9d0cc2a7df934dc21.jpg=s660]

Malaysiakini is reaching out to the public to help it raise RM500,000 after the Federal Court convicted the news organisation of contempt of court.

The sum - which is more than the RM200,000 sought by the Attorney-General's Chambers - must be paid within three working days, by next Wednesday (Feb 24).

Contempt proceedings against Malaysiakini and its editor-in-chief Steven Gan were initiated by Attorney-General Idrus Harun over comments left by readers on the news website.

The 6-1 majority decision cannot be appealed. The Federal Court did not convict Gan.
