PETALING JAYA: Police are investigating a posting on Facebook by a woman which allegedly insulted Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah.

Kuala Lumpur deputy police chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Amar Singhsaid six NGOs lodged reports at the Dang Wangi police station on Sunday after the woman's post went viral.

“The NGO representatives read a woman's account on Facebook that made hateful comments against Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong, believed to be seditious.

The case is being investigated under Section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act 1948,” he said in a statement.

Amar advised people to respect harmony and the rule of law, adding that the police would not hesitate to act against those “posing a threat to national security”.
