PETALING JAYA: Asia Times journalist Nick Kochan stands by his report on his interview with Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

Kochan also released a three-part recording of his interview with the Umno deputy president. In a tweet on Tuesday (July 5) Kochan said that he and co-author Nile Bowie disputed Mohamad's claim that his comments were taken out of context.

"After Asia Times published my exclusive interview with Umno deputy chief Mohamad, he claimed his remarks were taken out of context, which co-author Nile Bowie and I firmly dispute.

"Here are the full recordings. We stand by our reporting," Kochan tweeted.

Earlier, Mohamad denied that he said former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should go to jail for his role in the 1MDB scandal.

The Umno deputy president said he was misquoted in an Asia Times report saying that "Umno's No 2 thinks Najib should go to jail".

"That is inaccurate. What I said (during the interview) was that Najib should get a fair trial.

"If he is convicted, so be it. But what is important is that he has to get a fair trial," he said.

Tobby I think Tok Mat knew Asia Times will release his audio! He is making denial out of gesture! Probably this is his strategy!
