Top 5 At 5: Calling for Crocodile Hunters!

Today's countdown includes:

5. Lee Hsien-Loong's official resignation as Prime Minister of Singapore.

4. Sabah's crocodile-hunting licence, which was introduced back in 2017 to curb the increasing crocodile populations, has not been popular with locals. So, we get into why that is, and what it takes to get a crocodile-product industry going. 3. Sarawak is being urged to preserve the culture and histories of the Sihan, Ukit and Lahanan communities of Sarawak’s Belaga district which are among the rarest ethnic groups in the region dating back over a thousand years. Yet, these communities are shrinking year by year.

2. Data leaked to a journalist consortium reveals that 300 Malaysian business-owners and corporate players own holdings in Dubai’s property market, worth up to RM710 million. Koh Jun Lin, Deputy News Editor of MalaysiaKini comments on the media outlet's role in uncovering this leak.

1. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's meeting with Hamas leaders, Ismail Haniyah and Khalid Mashal during his visit to Qatar has raised eyebrows, particularly from US analysts who say ,"Malaysia is playing a dangerous game.". We discuss the optics of Anwar's meeting with Julia Roknifard, Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Nottingham
