PRS Youth Lodges Police Report Against Illegal Radio Stations

KUCHING: The Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Youth movement today lodged a police report against two illegal private radio stations, Radio Free Sarawak (RFS) and Radio Kenyalang (RK) for allegedly airing false news and inciting the people.

PRS Youth deputy chief Ellison Silo Bilun said the movement supported PRS president Tan Sri Dr James Masing's call that the authorities should take stern action against the sponsors and the people behind RFS and RK.

"If RFS and RK are allowed to poison the people's mind, we are concerned that the security of the country would be threatened," he said when met by reporters at the Sungai Maong police station here.

Ellison said a report would also be lodged with the Malaysian Communications Multimedia Commission.

He claimed the radio station constantly harped on issues such as native customary rights land, bumiputera status and development projects to confuse the people particularly, the Iban community, and also indulged in character assasination.
