Fury over anti-Sarawak postings

KUCHING: Anti-Sarawak postings have appeared on a social networking site again.

A Facebook group calling itself Semenanjung Anti Sarawak (Peninsula Anti Sarawak) and Bunuh Warga Sarawak Kat Semenanjung (Kill Sarawakians in Peninsula) had irked many Sarawakians as its postings went viral yesterday.

The postings, which were full of insults and derogatory language, had come to the knowledge of Deputy Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof.

"I was tagged along these posts and I am aware of them. And this is not the first post with such a tone."

He called on all Malaysians to stand up against such postings and take action by lodging a police report.

Earlier this year, similar postings also appeared on Facebook. However, police have yet to trace the administrators of the group.

Sarawak Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Zulkifli Hassan said they had yet to receive any report on the matter.

"This could be the same people who posted similar postings on Facebook earlier this year," said Zulkifli.

Other Facebook users had also made counter-postings on the site.
