PETALING JAYA: The recent arrest of three individuals by the police for allegedly insulting Sultan Muhammad V does not fall under the categories for which the Sedition Act should be used, says The Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ).

It voiced concerned over the use of the Sedition Act to arrest the three individuals over their comments on social media deemed insulting to Sultan Muhammad V.
