Kelab Penyokong Pas Facebook under police probe for linking TMJ to corruption

Johor police are investigating the administrator or owner of the Kelab Penyokong Pas Malaysia Facebook account for linking the Regent of Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, to a corruption allegation involving Datuk Mohamad Zamri Zainul Abidin.

Johor police chief Commissioner M. Kumar confirmed the investigation is related to a post titled ‘TMJ has spoken, will PMX remain silent?’

The statement under investigation is: “TMJ says AMLA MACC-Xamfi director asked for a RM20 million bribe from Qatar Holdings (Jan 28, 2023).”

Datuk Mohamad Zamri is the current Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Anti-Money Laundering Director.

A police report made against the post at the Penawar police station, Kota Tinggi, at approximately 4.05 pm yesterday by representative of the government.

“The investigation is being conducted by the Classified Crime Investigation Unit, prosecution/law division, and Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act 1948 and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

The case is still under investigation, and the public is advised to be responsible social media users and not use the platform unlawfully.

Stern action will be taken against any party that acts in any way, whether by posting, spreading, or sharing seditious, defamatory, or false information that could affect public order and national security,” he said in a statement today.

Yesterday, Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi said the allegations is a malicious attempt to undermine the royal institution.
