Terengganu Umno Youth and three NGOs in Sabah have lodged police reports over a Facebook post insulting Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Terengganu Umno Youth chief Mohd Johari Abu Bakar made the report at the Kuala Terengganu District Police headquarters today.

The three Sabah NGOs - Persatuan Bangsa Sungai Sabah, Persatuan Momogun Rungus Sabah, and Kelab Kapal Belia Asia Malaysia - made their reports at the Kota Kinabalu district police headquarters, also today.

Their reports were directed at a post on a Facebook account in the name of Doris Jones.

"I hope the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission will take stern action against the FB account holder Doris Jones to prevent any repeat of such posts.

"The time has come for the authorities to act firmly or the situation could become worse," Mohd Johari told reporters after making the police report.

In Kota Kinabalu, Persatuan Bangsa Sungai Sabah deputy president Juhari Janan, speaking for the three NGOs, said the police and MCMC should take stern action against Facebook account holder 'Doris Jones'.

"This is an insolent act. We hope the police and MCMC will take immediate action to bring the irresponsible individual to justice," he told reporters after the NGOs had lodged their reports.
