A civil society body today lodged a police report against five individuals over Facebook postings that included a death threat against Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mujahid Yusof.
Pertubuhan Gerakan Martabat Pejuang Negara (GMPN) president Razali Zakaria said the individual who went by the Facebook name Muhammad Naim had, among others, posted a statement recently that read “Mujahid ini patut dibunuh memang manusia terbangsat di dunia (Mujahid deserves to die, the most despicable human being in the world)”.
Razali said GMPN also named four other individuals in its police report, namely Mohd Elham, Asfanizam Bin Abdullah, Hanif Junit and Abu Rafiq, for uploading statements that could threaten security and inciting others to do the same.
He said this to reporters after lodging the police report at the Dang Wangi police station in Kuala Lumpur.
Meanwhile, Dang Wangi district police deputy chief Supt Naazron Abdul Yusof said the case would be investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for spreading fake news.
