"I will leave it at that for the moment... I do not wish to speak more on the matter," he said.
Asked if he had lodged a police report, the former chief news editor of Berita Harian said he has no intention to do so and would confine his comments to his posting.
"Everything is there in my blog," he said.
I dare this Government officer to step down and play active politic..BukittunggalIbrahim wrote in his posting on Dec 26 that someone had threatened to send him to prison for the rest of his natural life for his comments on DAP in his blog.
It is believed the threat came as a reaction to two recent postings, "Kerana Mulut Badan Binasa" on Dec 25 about Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's claim that Teoh Beng Hock had been murdered and "DAP Semakin Galak Serang Melayu" a day earlier.
Responding to the threat, Ibrahim fired back in his blog that he was prepared to go to jail to defend his rights and the special place of the Malays in this country.
Defending his comments on Lim Guan Eng and the DAP, Ibrahim said he was not a racist for merely defending the rights of the Malays.
Excerpts of the threats, reproduced in his blog, warned Ibrahim not to use RTM for his own agenda and to be fair in his news broadcasts.
Lim is under police investigation for sedition over remarks he made on Teoh's death.
