Malaysia's Mahathir says anti-fake news law to be given "proper" definition

KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 (Reuters) - Malaysia’s new Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on Sunday that the anti-fake news law will be given “proper” definition so that media and the public is clear on what is fake.

“Even though we support freedom of press and freedom of speech, there are limits,” Mahathir said in a live telecast on state TV.

Abolishing the anti-fake news law was one of the Mahathir’s campaign promises.

Mahathir also said foreign investment must bring in capital and technology, and set up factories for either domestic distribution or export.

The country will invite foreign participation in large infrastructure projects “when we don’t have expertise”, he said. (Reporting by Praveen Menon)
