Top 5 At 5: A Royal PR Debacle, Sugar Bans and Citizenship Amendments

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our updates from Dewan Rakyat, where we discuss issues with overcrowding in immigration depots, the Media Accreditation Card, and adaptation measures for climate change.

2. A Mother’s Day photo of British Royal Kate Middleton breaks the internet amidst rumours of her absence from the public eye.

3. Sugar in the workplace? No more! The government is calling for a nationwide campaign against sugar to battle high rates of diabetes, specifically among the working force.

4. CTOS files an appeal after being sued for defamation due to an inaccurate credit rating, which brings into question whether CTOS can provide credit ratings which affect the livelihood of citizens.

5. And our top story: the highly contested citizenship amendment, and what it will entail for Malaysian mothers, their children, and foundlings.

For these stories, we heard from public health medicine specialist Dr Anza Elias, Director of Wealth Vantage Advisory Idham Idris, Intellectual Property and Information Technology lawyer Foong Cheng Leong, and President of Family Frontiers Suri Kempe.
