Man detained for insulting Terengganu Sultan on Facebook
CYBERJAYA: The authorities have detained a man for allegedly insulting the Sultan of Terengganu on his Facebook page.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) in a statement said it had managed to trace a suspect who insulted the Sultan on his Facebook page and police have detained him for questioning.
If found guilty, he may be fined not more than RM50,000 or a year's jail or both.
It said MCMC views very seriously the abuse of social media when uploading contents that are derogatory in nature especially those involving the monarchy.
"The laws of the nation is enforced whether it is offline or online. A crime is still a crime, even if it's on social media," said MCMCchairman Datuk Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi.
"Social media users should be aware that they are not invincible as they thought. We advise members of the public to be careful and to be more responsible when communicating in cyberspace. Those who break the law will be brought to justice," he said. BERNAMA
