KUCHING: Police are tracking down a Facebook account owner identified as 'Raja Rimba' over several provocative postings, including a murder threat against Sarawak Yang DiPertua Negeri, Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud.

State Deputy Police Commissioner Datuk Dev Kumar said a staff member of the Astana Negeri filed a police report on the matter this morning.

"We are now looking for the account holder,” he said.

Among his postings, which appeared on the wall of Facebook group, NCR Sarawak included plans to attack Taib's cronies and burn down Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad.

A local newspaper reported yesterday that 'Raja Rimba' had also posted 'I will kill u' and attached a photograph of Taib on the same Facebook group.

Checks showed the account was still active but both postings were longer visible.

Dev said the case is being investigated under Section 507 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act for criminal intimidation. -- Bernama
