CYBERJAYA: A non-governmental organisation (NGO) on Thursday lodged a report with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission here on the extreme acts of opposition cyber troopers using vulgar words, spreading defamation and pornographic pictures as well as threat of rape and murder on Facebook.
Malaysian Youth Rights Movement President Shen Yee Aun said the report was also made against disseminating lies, pornographic and doctored pictures of MCA leaders in the pro-opposition social websites.
"These are extreme acts as thousands of such pictures were shared in about 100 pro-opposition political websites on Facebook.
Shen said the report was also made following the complaint of a 22-year-old woman who received abusive words and threats of rape and murder through Facebook because she acted in a video supporting the government disseminated through Youtube.
Shen, who was a former DAP member who resigned from the party at the end of 2008, said he was fighting on an NGO ticket and had not joined any political party.
"If they do not agree with the act, do not resort to gangsterism or cyber violence. This is no good for our youths," he said.
Asked why he left DAP, Shen said he felt the party was too deceitful and he could not accept its ways after the 2008 general election showed it was too dirty.
"The matter I raised today proved one thing. They will just assassinate, or give instruction to defame, to spin, to kill or do anything to destroy people who disagree with them," he said.
Shen said he hoped MCMC would investigate the matter and take action against those carrying out such extreme acts as a lesson to others.-Bernama
