Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said a report on the probe would be handed over to the Attorney-General for further action.

He said the MCMC had received many complaints on this threat and there was a need to conduct a thorough investigation by examining various news media.

“We have received complaints on the matter, and we are looking at the news media. We are identifying the source. We will leave it to the AG (Attorney-General) to decide,” he told reporters after the pre-launch of the KL International Youth Discourse 2016 here.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said yesterday that an investigation would be conducted on allegations that billionaire George Soros was funding Bersih, the Merdeka Center and Malaysiakini.
