KUANTAN: Police will scrutinise the contents of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok’s video clip laced with political satire and innuendos to determine whether it was seditious or defamatory.

The clip titled Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014 Video Clip was uploaded on Jan 27 and circulated widely on Facebook, reported Bernama.

Internal Security and Public Order director Datuk Seri Salleh Mat Rasid said relevant action would be taken against Kok (if she had committed an offence in the video).

He was speaking to reporters after a dialogue session with Kampung Seri Jaya Gading residents during Ops Selamat IV, in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebrations yesterday.

The 11.39-minute video portrayed Kok as a feng shui host interviewing three panelists regarding Chinese New Year and their feng shui predictions.

The panelists in the video poked fun on a variety of issues such as the current education system in Malaysia and the issue of terrorist intrusion in Sabah last year, among others.

In Kota Kinabalu, Rural Development Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal said stern action should be taken against DAP for ridiculing Sabah and Malaysian security forces in the video.

“Issues of national security should not be lampooned. Our fellow Malaysians sacrificed their lives in defending the country,” said Shafie, the Umno vice-president, after attending the Liberal Democratic Party open house here.
