KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has begun investigations into a video clip of celebrity Azwan Ali allegedly trivialising the proclamation of Emergency by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
Federal CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the 41-second-long video was circulated by Facebook user Zai Mikail on Jan 12.
"Investigations were conducted by the Special Investigations Unit (D5) under Section 504 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.
"Azwan Ali was called to the Special Investigations Unit office to assist investigations on Thursday (Jan 21)," he said in a statement.
He added investigations would continue to identify the owner of the Facebook page who uploaded and circulated the video clip.
"The police are calling on the public to be smart and courteous social media users and not to use social media platforms to cause anxiety and threaten national harmony.
"Stern action will be taken on any individual who intentionally threatens security and public order," he said.
In March last year, Azwan was fined RM17,000 by a Sessions Court here for uploading a video on YouTube in which he hit out at Putrajaya Hospital over the handling of the Covid-19 outbreak.
He issued an open apology in court to all Putrajaya Hospital staff for his video.
