More Misreporting?

This time, it appears that the culprit is Bernama.

Penang Chief Minister has requested that Bernama correct it 30 July report and instead print the complete and accurate version of his comments on the new RM300 million Sarawak State Assembly Building. He was reported to have said:
“Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was also impressed with the new building, adding that Sarawak had the capability to provide the state with more infrastructure facilities.”
However, what he said in Bahasa Malaysia were words to this effect:
“Bangunan ini menarik perhatian. Yang menarik saya adalah pembentukan modal insan dan sumber manusia seperti dalam bidang pendidikan. Adalah penting sekolah dapat bekalan letrik kerana apa gunanya computer tanpa bekalan letrik. Penetration untuk jalur lebar(broadband) di Sarawak adalah 13%. Saya lebih berminat memberikan tumpuan kepada aspek menaikkan kadar penetration broadband atau jalur lebar ini.”
Can you tell the difference?
