PETALING JAYA: The Cabinet has agreed to commence the process of amending the controversial Sedition Act, starting with engagements with the police, says home minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

“I was just given the green light to start this process (of amending the Act) two weeks ago. The objective is not to tighten controls but to determine how we can invoke the act to manage the situation that has been referred to as the 3R (race, religion and royalty) phenomenon,” he said.
