His lawyers had threatened to sue in a letter to the newspaper on 15 May.“We regret that the prime minister has opted for legal action instead of using his right of reply,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“This libel action is disastrous for freedom of information in Malaysia because it means that any news outlet can be sued whenever it allow its readers to express their views. We urge the prime minister to reverse course and let people criticize him.”Malaysiakini editor Steven Gan said: “We intend to fight the suit vigorously.” Known for its independence and frequent criticism of the prime minister’s party, which has held power for years, Malaysiakini is also currently being sued by other politicians and businessmen in connection of its coverage of various scandals.A court hearing to be attended by lawyers representing the prime minister and Malaysiakini has been set for 18 June.Malaysia is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

As a result, NCUA anticipates a $600 million to $800 million distribution to credit unions in 2018 with additional distributions possible. This would amount to credit unions being refunded only about 15 percent of their original assessments made to the TCCUSF.“NAFCU and the credit unions we represent appreciate the NCUA’s work on this issue, but this approach and outcome are not ideal,” said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. “While we welcome credit unions getting some back in 2018, raising the NOL by 9 basis points is unprecedented and unnecessary.
