The Home Ministry has continued to confiscate copies of Suara Keadilan despite the lifting of a suspension order on the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) newspaper.

The latest edition of Suara Keadilan (21-28 April) was reportedly seized by ministry officials from several vendors in Selayang, Gombak and on Jalan Masjid India this morning.

In a press statement issued today, Suara Keadilan's editorial department claimed similar seizures of the newspaper have taken place in other areas around the country.

Officers from the Enforcement Unit of Publications and Al-Quran Texts Division in the Home Ministry did not provide any specific reason for the seizures except that Suara Keadilan's publication had violated the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 (PPPA).
