PRO-NAJIB RAZAK's most talented blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin of Malaysia Today retracted his article almost immediately after receiving legal threat from Alibaba Group.

Albert Liu, the group's deputy vice-president who signed the letter of official notice to cease and desist, on behalf of the China-based Alibaba Group Holding Ltd yesterday, Thursday 28 March 2019, had accused Raja Petra of lying and defaming its chairman Jack Ma over the latter's purported recent meeting with Malaysian Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng and his special officer Tony Pua in Hong Kong.

It then threatened to take legal action against Raja Petra if he did not respond to them by 1 April 2019, prompting Raja Petra's quick response.

"I have taken down that article and promise never to repeat that story," the controversial blogger wrote.

In the said article, Raja Petra claimed Chinese billionaire Jack Ma told Lim and Pua that China allegedly no longer trusts Malaysia because the government was said to not honour agreements.

However, the blogger also made additional snide remarks against lawyer-activist Ambiga Sreenevasan and Clare Rewcastle-Brown in the new article, referring to the out-of-court settlement between the Sarawak Report editor and PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.

Raja Petra also defended scandal-plagued former prime minister Mohd Najib Abdul Razak, claiming the latter is a victim of the so-called "guilty unless you can prove you are innocent" justice system.

In early March 2019, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad called Raja Petra a "liar" over graft allegations in the Penang Undersea Tunnel project.
