An FB user suspects she was framed for reporting another person’s indecent online behaviour.
Police have arrested Catterine Chong, who goes by the name Catt Ginger on Facebook, for allegedly insulting Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V via a Facebook posting.
City deputy police chief Datuk Mazlan Lazim said the 41-year-old woman, who works as a farm manager in Sabah, was arrested in Kepong yesterday.
Police have also seized a mobile phone as well as computer equipment from her.
Catt Ginger purportedly posted an offensive edited picture of the Agong along with a Hari Raya greeting on Jun 25.
It had irked netizens who urged police to take action against the user.
Yesterday, at least 15 police reports were lodged against Chong in Perak. She also received death threats and her address was exposed on social media.
Chong has denied uploading the photo in question onto the social media platform.
According to her lawyer, Vince Tan, Chong suspected she was framed for reporting another person’s indecent online behaviour.
Tan alleged that Chong was denied access to a lawyer and phone call to family members as well as denied medicine while under remand.
Malaysiakini reported that the individual is to be charged in Ampang session court tomorrow for threatening to “kill Chinese people and rape a Chinese woman”.
Tan said Chong is expected to be called as a witness.
