PUTRAJAYA: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun has been ordered to investigate a group calling themselves as Sabah-Sarawak Merdeka movement concerning a photograph which alle­gedly insulted the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on social media.

Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin said besides insulting the Ruler, the act of composing the photograph of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong was a violation of the country’s law.

“I have ordered the Inspector-General of Police to investigate the case immediately and to take appropriate action against the criminal.

“The government will not compromise with anyone who violates the country’s law with the intention of creating social disharmony,” he said on Facebook yesterday.

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission is also reported to be carrying out an investigation. — Bernama
