The Edge suspension
Pending the outcome of ongoing investigation, the best option for the government was to suspend them (the publications) temporarily. Given the dramatic turn of events, we could not just simply swallow whatever excuseThe Edge is saying now.
Abdul Rahman Dahlan, Kota Belud MP, insisting that the decision to ban The Edge is a right move
PAS reminds the government that the 1MDB fiasco and claims that 1MDB money was deposited into the Prime Minister’s personal accounts must be answered even if The Edge is suspended. The 1MDB issue will not disappear. Instead, any attempt or action by the government that is seen as blocking any discussion on 1MDB will only fan the anger of the rakyat. The era of fear mongering is no more.

None of the published articles have been challenged. No one has come to say, ‘This article is wrong, that article is wrong’. No one.
Ho Kay Tat, The Edge publisher and chief executive officer
We can ban some publications, it does not solve anything, really. If at all, it's making many more people upset and worse still, there is now another grouse against the government, for nothing.
Rafidah Aziz, former minister
Justo is obviously an angry man, and understandably so, as we did not pay him what he wanted. Yes, we misled him. But that was the only way to get hold of the evidence to expose how a small group of Malaysians and foreigners cheated the people of Malaysia of US$1.83 billion (RM6.97 billion).

This is a good chance for them to clear their names from the allegations made against them by certain parties on their involvement in the 1MDB controversy.
