Malaysian authorities have decided against charging two Australian journalists who attempted to interview the Malaysian prime minister over corruption allegations and will instead deport them, police said Tuesday.
The decision came after the Australian government intervened and suggested the detention was part of a Malaysian crackdown on press freedom.
Australian Broadcasting Corp. television reporter Linton Besser and camera operator Louie Eroglu had been told to appear in a Sarawak state court on Tuesday morning charged with obstructing a public servant from discharging his duties when they questioned Prime Minister Najib Razak as he entered a mosque in the state capital Kuching on Saturday.
The state broadcaster reported that two hours after a press release was issued Monday confirming the charge, the lawyer for the two was told they would not be charged.
ABC said no explanation was given for the change.

The officer, who posed anonymously on the Second City Cop blog, also noted the media didn’t report that protesters were running through parking lots and breaking windows of cars with Trump stickers on them, or that the department called out emergency Incident Teams to cope with the anti-Trump riot at the University of Illinois in Chicago.
