This was revealed by Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu whom said Harian Metro was fined 50 tasah for the offence of disseminating lies.

The minister added that said the tabloid had admitted its “guilt and misconduct” during a meeting with Penan headmen, including paramount chief Temenggong Datuk Hasan Sui, last Friday and that the payment of the fine will be publicly handed over at a date set by the Penan community leaders.
