Telling Malaysian stories Corrected 11.25am, 27 July 2009
We mistakenly captioned a photo showing Bernice Chauly’s Punjabi grandfather as “Ipoh, 1913 – the place and year Bernice’s grandfather was born”.
Her grandfather, Tehil Singh, was actually born in Punjab in 1880, and went to Singapore in 1908. The picture, however, was taken in Ipoh in 1913. He is the last man seated on the right.
We apologise for our error.
Khir Toyo suspended from S’gor assembly, 17 BN reps walked out Corrected 7.05pm, 15 July 2009
Bernama issued a correction that 17 and not 20 Barisan Nasional representatives had walked out of the Selangor state assembly.
Najib’s performance Corrected 12.30am, 15 July 2009
We originally captioned a photo by Danny Lim showing an anti-ISA candlelight vigils as “Police interfere with a candlelight vigil for ISA detainees, 13 Sept 2009”.
It should be dated 13 Sept 2008 since we can’t travel forward in time, yet!
We apologise for the inaccuracy.
Western media spotlight off Najib Corrected 1.05pm, 10 July 2009
We originally reported that the quote “Najib, who?” could be attributed to academic Clive Kessler by writing the subsequent paragraph as such: “If you ask a journalist at a Western media organisation what she or he thinks about Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, that’s probably the answer you’ll get, says academic Clive Kessler.”
Nowhere in his interview with The Nut Graph did Professor Kessler write or utter those words in response to questions we sent him.
We apologise for conflating his actual remarks with our own narrative and understanding of the issue.
Nomination day in Manik Urai Corrected 9.15am, 6 July 2009
We originally reported that Kelantan PAS Deputy Commissioner II Datuk Husam Musa was at the nomination centre for the Manik Urai by-election. He wasn’t. The person who was spotted was Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice-president Azmin Ali.
We apologise for the mistake.
