KUALA LUMPUR: Activist Fahmi Reza was questioned by the police after allegedly spreading a parody notice bearing the name of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).  

He arrived at the Dang Wangi police headquarters here at around 4.20pm Sunday and was questioned for about one and a half hours.  

Speaking to reporters after giving his statement, Fahmi said that he gave full cooperation to the police but had declined to give them his passwords to his social media accounts.  

"Instead, I have offered to log in to the accounts for them and monitor as they go through my accounts," he said.  

He also said that he would be giving a statement to MCMC officers soon.  

Fahmi had allegedly circulated the parody notice that warned public to not humiliate the country's leaders and depicted an edited image of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.  

The purported advisory started to make its rounds after it was allegedly uploaded by Fahmi on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.  

Fahmi was previously told that he was under police watch for uploading an edited image of Najib, as part of his anti-Sedition Act campaign.
