Probe into video allegedly insulting King and Constitution, NGO urges police

JOHOR: Non-governmental organisation Majlis Ayahanda Malaysia (Masia) is calling for an investigation into an individual, believed to be a Singaporean, for allegedly insulting the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Federal Constitution.

Masia Johor Supreme Council member Zamrin Hamzah, commenting on a video making its rounds on WhatsApp since yesterday, said the act constituted a crime.

"The perpetrator deliberately belittled and ridiculed the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

"If action is not taken, it will tarnish our image and, at the same time, send a wrong message to the people of Malaysia and Singapore.

"Johor and Singapore police must cooperate in investigations until the suspect is apprehended and charged," Zamrin said after lodging a report at the Seri Alam district police headquarters yesterday.

He added that the individual's statements were a deliberate attempt to stir up racial discord in Malaysia, and disrespected the Federal Constitution.

He hoped that the authorities would take stern action, including blacklisting the individual from entering the country.

"This is not the first such case, so appropriate action needs to be taken to serve as a lesson."
