A humanoid figurine made of cloth was found hanging on a flyover in Malacca this morning, with the words “kerajaan pembunuh” (murderous government) written on it.
Oriental Daily reported that the figurine was seen by the public at the flyover of Jalan Tun Abdul Razak-Ayer Keroh, which is near Seri Negeri – the state government’s administrative office.
A photo of the figurine showed it clad in a white T-shirt with blue pants and a straw hat. The words “Kerajaan Pembunuh” were written on its shirt in red.
Police reportedly arrived at the scene at 7.30am and removed the figurine after receiving reports from the public.
Melaka Tengah police chief Assistant Commissioner Afzanizar Ahmad said the police will investigate the matter under Section 504 of the Penal Code (intentional insults).
He reportedly said that the authorities will track down the perpetrator for investigation.
On May 11, the media also reported that graffiti was sprayed along the Malacca river with the words “kerajaan gagal”, which means failed government in Malay.
On May 18, Johor police also arrested 27 people for allegedly erecting a roadblock with motorcycles and cars in Parit Raja, to draw the attention of motorists apart from putting up a banner printed with the words ‘Kerajaan Gagal’ while setting off flares and firecrackers. – Malaysiakini
