The political secretary to Ismail Sabri Yaakob has lodged a police report against former Umno supreme council member Lokman Adam over a Facebook video allegedly defaming the senior minister for security.
Syed Mohd Fazmi Sayid Mohammad lodged the report at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters at about 2.30pm today after watching the hour-long video posted on the Facebook wall of user “Lokman Adam” at about 11am yesterday.
Syed Mohd Fazmi said the video claimed that Ismail Sabri, who is also Umno vice-president, was trying to convince other Umno MPs to become candidates for Bersatu during the 15th general election in the event they were not selected by the party.
“After examining the contents of the video, I clearly found that the owner of the account had slandered Ismail Sabri,” he said after lodging the report.
Dang Wangi district police chief Mohamad Zainal Abdullah confirmed receiving the report.
Lokman was arrested by police in May under the Emergency Ordinance over “fake news” on Covid-19.
