KUALA LUMPUR: Seputeh MP Teresa Kok has lodged a police report after allegedly receiving death threats regarding a video clip, which was posted on YouTube.

City acting CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa confirmed that the police had received the report.

"We are investigating the case under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation," he said when contacted on Wednesday.

It is learnt that Kok lodged the report at the Tun HS Lee police station here Wednesday.

Kok, a DAP national vice-chairman, is alleged to have uploaded the video clip titled Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014 Video Clip on Jan 27 on her YouTube DAP Seputeh channel.

In the clip, which is in Mandarin but with English subtitles, Kok acted as a "feng shui" talk-show host discussing various issues with three guests.

The "panellists" poked fun at a variety of issues such as the education system in Malaysia and the Sabah intrusion last year.

A remark made by one of the "guests" on the intrusion that cost the lives of 10 security personnel had angered many.

Several police reports have been lodged against Kok's video clip for allegedly insulting the Government.

Kok has since denied the allegations, saying that the video was meant to be humorous and satirical.
