Activist Fahmi Reza is expected to be charged at the Sessions Court on Thursday (Feb 10).

His lawyer Rajsurian Pillai, when contacted on Tuesday (Feb 8), confirmed that the proceeding would be conducted at the Kuala Lumpur Courts Complex.

“I am allowed to disclose that the police called Fahmi to attend court to face charges this Thursday at 9am.

“Any other information will be released by my client,” he said.

On Jan 26, Bernama reported that Fahmi had been called to Bukit Aman over a social media post that allegedly depicted an edited image of the Pahang Coat of Arms with the words “House of Balak”.

In a media statement, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director Abdul Jalil Hassan had said the activist was called to have his statement recorded at the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit, prosecution/legal division of the CID.

The post was made on Jan 3.

It is learnt that investigations were carried out according to Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act 1948 for acts with seditious tendency and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for misuse of network facilities or services. – The Star
