KUALA LUMPUR, July 19 — A political leader has been identified to have been involved in the spread of a misleading video clip which tries to manipulate the statement made by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob statement in Dewan Rakyat concerning the use of subsidised cooking oil in packets by ‘Makcik Goreng Pisang’ (lady who sells banana fritters).

Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the individual who distributed the video clip through its TikTok account had been identified by the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

“We have asked the MCMC to take follow-up action through the normal channel.

“…I believe that all Members of Parliament (MPs) heard followed the sitting well (yesterday) and felt happy with the explanation given by the prime minister yesterday.

“This is not done by the MPs,” he told reporters at the Parliament Building here today.

In his reply to Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who wanted to know the action taken by the government in addressing the leakage of subsidy for cooking oil at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday, Ismail Sabri said cooking oil in packets was meant for domestic use, but petty traders and hawkers were using it too.
