KUCHING - A team claiming to be from a news channel in Britain were sent out by security from the old State Assembly building after they tried to ask Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak questions on allegations of corruption.

The reporter - Jonathan Miller, the Asian correspondent for Britain's Channel 4 News - and his cameraman were seen being asked by security personnel to leave the building where the Prime Minister had just arrived to join other leaders following Barisan Nasional's win in the state polls.

In March, two journalists from the Australian Broadcasting Corpo­ration were arrested after they breached the security line to approach Najib to ask him questions - also in Sarawak.

They were later asked to leave the country.
