PUTRAJAYA: The Deputy Prime Minister’s Office says that Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had never approved the text of the speech that was delivered at an Internet gateway project launch in Shah Alam on Tuesday (Jan 22).

It said that Dr Wan Azizah had also not delegated anyone to read out the text of the speech at the event.




In a statement, it added that Dr Wan Azizah had never said that the government would extend its full cooperation to the implementation of the Enhanced Malaysia International Internet Gateway (EM-IIG) High-Speed Broadband project.

“News reports quoting the Deputy Prime Minister in relation to the EM-IIG project developed by XiddiG  Cellular Communications Sdn Bhd are not true,” it said.

The Deputy Prime Minister’s Office also warned all organisations against using or distributing the content of the text of the speech in the name of the Deputy Prime Minister without permission.

“Using the name of the Deputy Prime Minister without her permission is a serious matter,” it said, adding that stern action would be taken if such a situation recurred.

According to media reports, the text of the speech of the Deputy Prime Minister was read out by the Deputy Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon, at the launch of the EM-IIG project at a hotel in Shah Alam.

The reports said the RM5.45bil project encompassed the installation of the world’s largest optical fibre involving a 110,000-km line that would enable Malaysia to have the fastest Internet access speed with the 5G platform in South-East Asia by 2022.
