POLICE are in the final stage of investigations into a sedition case involving a blogger, said Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Fu Ah Kiow. 

Replying to Raime Unggi (BN – Tenom), Fu said police would decide whether to recommend charges against Nathaniel Tan for his posting on Jelas.info

It was one of five cases involving cyber postings being investigated by the police, he said. 

The other four cases were an e-mail containing seditious remark on race; a private company’s website which contained elements of sedition; a Dr Ng Seng who posted seditious remarks on the website of the Prime Minister’s Department; and Wee Meng Chee’s Negarakuku videoclip on YouTube. 

Fu said the police and Government were serious about the contents of cyber postings where facts were distorted and twisted, as they could jeopardise public security.
