Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Mohammad Mentek (pic) said the committee to be chaired by its deputy sec-gen Tan Chuan Ou comprises four members.
The committee will conduct a detailed investigation starting Friday (Jan 15), on the issue of old tweets containing indecent remarks on the MCMC Twitter account, to identify how it surfaced through the examination of documents, rules, operating methods, parties involved, and the possibility of elements of abuse or misappropriation.
"This committee will also recommend appropriate action, including disciplinary action, (lodging) police report or reporting to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) or bringing a civil action in court against the parties involved if there is negligence or misconduct in this issue," he said in a statement, here.
He also said the investigation would be carried out transparently and a report on the results of the investigation would be submitted to Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah for further action.
He added that improvement measures will also be proposed to ensure that such things do not recur. - Bernama
