On the 23rd of November 2015, Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said denied that the Malaysian government had procured spyware from hacking team. In a formal response (in Parliament!!), the Minister simply stated “For your information, no such device was purchased by the Prime Minister’s Department”.

Read his post on his blog.

CORRECTION: Keith Rozario’s was misspelled when this post first appeared. I did wonder if he would consider asking him to change his name to match my post, but decided it would probably just be better for me to fix my mistake. Apologies to Keith.

    • Well, that’s embarrassing. I had actually caught my error and fixed it before posting, but I guess the edit didn’t get saved. Sorry about that, Keith, and thanks for correcting me.
