In Malaysia, the law which governs the fundamental right of freedom of speech is by the virtue of Article 10 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by the public authorities’ regardless frontiers. In simpler words, this right also includes the right to express one's ideas and opinions freely through speech, writing, and other forms of communication but without deliberately causing harm to others' character or reputation by false or misleading statements.
