[KiniNews] There is no need to take action under the Sedition Act against Dr Mahathir Mohamad over the former prime minister’s criticism of the government, Home Minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said.

However, Saifuddin said he would leave it fully to the police to take appropriate action if necessary.

Meanwhile, in a separate story, the Finance Ministry has denied that one of its officers had signed off on revoking the Albukhary Foundation's tax-exempt status.

This is believed to be in reference to allegations made by blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin and others that a senior officer in the ministry's tax division had signed off on the cancellation while Lim Guan Eng was in office.

“The Finance Ministry, whether through the previous minister and or its officers, has never revoked the tax exemption given to the Albukhary Foundation,” it said in a statement today.
