In defence of Tamil Corrected on 22 Dec 2008 at 6.55pm
In our initial illustration, we said Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal was quoted as saying that Tan Sri Ananda Krishnan was owner of Air Asia. This is inaccurate. Air Asia is run by Datuk Tony Fernandes. Ananda is a wealthy entrepreneur who has business interests in companies such as Astro and Maxis. This mistake was the result of human error. We apologise for this.
Why Malaysia needs the ISA Corrected on 10 Dec 2008 at 10.00am
Columnist Wong Chin Huat had originally written: “Without the ISA and all other draconian laws, a government cannot be strong in an autonomous sense — it can only persuade and coerce people to support it.”
He meant to say: “Without the ISA and all other draconian laws, a government cannot be strong in an autonomous sense — it can only persuade and not coerce people to support it.”
Kuala Terengganu by-election Corrected on 8 Dec 2008 at 1.00pm
We had originally written: “Only two MPs from the small Sarawak-based party of SAPP left the BN but they chose to remain independent and did not join Pakatan Rakyat.” SAPP is a Sabah-based party.
We’re sorry for our sloppiness in editing, and stand corrected thanks to reader Ajang Laing Liling.

We’re sorry for the mistakes.
Two reform bills in five days Corrected on 3 Dec 2008 at 11.50am
In this news story, we mistakenly captioned Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz’s photo as Datuk Seri Najib Razak. We also made mistakes with the dates for the tabling of the bills and the Dewan Rakyat’s meeting.
We apologise to readers for our carelessness.
PKR political bureau to decide Zulkifli Nordin case Corrected on 2 Dec 2008 at 11.00am
In this news story, we inaccurately wrote: “Syed Husin earlier told The Nut Graph that the committee will come to a decision on the case this month (December).” It should have said “November” instead.
We apologise for the human error.
