In fact, GERAMM said that the PAS Youth also could use legal channels if the news by Mohd Farhan Darwis was defamatory.

“GERAMM strongly denied threats against journalists in any physical shape,” said the GERAMM press statement today.

Syarhan reportedly mentioned Mohd Farhan’s name and read the first paragraph of the news causing observers to look towards the media and chant “Retract! Retract! Boycott”.

At the same time, the delegation also continued chanting the same phrase while searching for Farhan among media workers.

Farhan however denied the report.

GERAMM is a loose alliance of journalists, media representatives and local activists fighting for freedom of press and its practitioners.
