malaysiakini has apologised to the DPM and the writer has resigned to accept responsibility for a major error in journalism.
Najib has been gracious enough to accept the apology and even praised the reporter for taking the appropriate action.
However the DPM could have taken an even more positive action to show that he has forgiven and also magnaminous in the case. He should have instructed all parties concerned that he would not welcome any police reports etc and close the matter. Instead he could request malaysiakini to donate an undisclosed sum like RM10k to his favourite charity.
