PUTRAJAYA: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun has been ordered to investigate a group calling themselves as Sabah-Sarawak Merdeka movement (Sabah-Sarawak Independence Movement) concerning the photograph which allegedly insulted the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in the social media.

Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said besides insulting the Ruler, the act of composing the photograph of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong was a violation of the country’s law.

“I have ordered the Inspector-General of Police to investigate the case immediately and to take appropriate action to bring the criminal to face the law.

“The government will not compromise with anyone who violates the country’s law with the intention of creating social disharmony,” he said in the latest entry on his Facebook today. Strongly criticising the image uploaded in the group’s Facebook, Muhyiddin also described it as an excessive act which did not portray the general manners of the people and contradicted the principles of Rukun Negara.

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is also reported to be carrying out investigations to determine the party responsible for uploading the image on the Facebook yesterday. – Bernama
