KUALA LUMPUR: Gerakan has lodged a police report against several Facebook users for spreading touched-up pictures depicting its president Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong molesting a woman.
Accompanied by several party members, Selangor Gerakan vice-Youth chief Ivanpal Singh Grewal lodged the report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters at around 3.30pm yesterday.
“The photos, which first surfaced in 2014 and were later debunked, have resurfaced, perhaps because of the upcoming general election.
“It has been posted on three occasions by three Facebook users – once in August last year and twice this year,” he said.
Ivanpal urged the police to investigate and take action against those behind the fake pictures.
“This is criminal defamation against our party president and we hope the authorities will be able to put a stop to this,” he said.
A police spokesman confirmed that they were looking into the matter.
