KUCHING, Nov 24: Communication and Digital Minister Ahmad Fahmi Mohamed Fadzil clarified that the Malaysia Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is not involved in TV Sarawak’s (TVS) decision-making process.

Fahmi, on his X (formerly Twitter) account at 12.31pm today said he has inquired about the matter with MCMC.

“@tvstvmy license condition is specifically for live and delayed telecast; prerecorded does not require MCMC approval.

“As such, MCMC is not involved in this decision-making process. LPF (Film Censorship Board of Malaysia) is under KDN (Ministry of Home Affairs),” he said.

He was responding to the Association of Churches (ACS) in Sarawak withdrawing from a Christmas event as the organiser, TVS, allegedly refused to change the song ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ to ‘O Holy Night’ due to “religious elements and protocol from LPF and MCMC”. — DayakDaily
