Man detained for insulting cop on social media
Police detained a staff of the Terengganu Forestry Department, here, for posting offensive remarks following his disgruntlement towards a police officer who had fined him.
Kuala Terengganu police chief Supt Suffian Sulaiman said the 26-year-old man posted the remark on Friday after being fined for using a registration number plate that did not adhere to specifications.
"Around 9.19pm on the same day, we received a Facebook snapshot of the abusive posting that was sent via the Whatsapp application. The suspect was then arrested around 12.40am (June 17), at a roadside in Taman Shahbandar," he told Bernama today.
Suffian urged the public to report cases of officers or policemen who are believed to be involved in misconduct or bribery through the correct channel and not via the social media.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
