Top 5 At 5: Najib's Detention, Media Cards & Daim

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. A bite-sized version of Popek Popek Parlimen, which included discussions to bolster our TVET programs and a suggestion to implement a special salary scheme for graduates.

2. The proposal for home detentions to reduce prison overcrowding, and the ensuing comments about former Prime Minister Najib Razak being "let off the hook."

3. The derogatory use of "Orang Ulu" in Parliament. Then, we talk about MPs in parliament using "Orang Ulu" in a derogatory way.

4. Shortened media card validity for online journalists

5. Toh Puan Naimah Khalid arguing that the provision used to charge her for asset declaration with MACC was invalid.

For these stories, we heard from Thomas Fann of Projek SAMA, Haresh Deol from Twentytwo13, and Dato' Vignesh Kumar.
