Cops nab Facebook user for insulting Agong


The police have nabbed a Facebook user who used his page to publish insults against the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and the royal institution.

Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the person, age 36, was arrested in Sungai Petani, Kedah today.

The person will be investigated under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act 1948 and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Fuzi reminded the public to be prudent when publishing material on social media and not publish statements that would undermine the royal institution as it could threaten public order.
