Police say the video uploaded to social media by Lokman Noor Adam was said to be criminally intimidating and contained the use of vulgar words against the leadership of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director Huzir Mohamed said the act was committed during a live telecast on Facebook.

“The Classified Criminal Investigations Unit of the CID prosecution and law division has begun investigating a report lodged on the matter.

“Police also seized the gadget believed to be used to upload the video. The suspect has been remanded for one day for further investigation,” he told Bernama when contacted today.

Huzir said the case is being investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation, Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for the improper use of network facilities or service and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955 for the use of indecent words.

He added that the investigation is being conducted professionally and fairly without any pressure or directive from any party.

Huzir also urged all parties to allow the police to complete their investigation in a transparent manner, saying stern action would be taken against those who deliberately threaten public order and security.

Bernama reported today that police had confirmed the arrest of the former Umno Supreme Council member yesterday for allegedly making a seditious statement on Facebook.
