KUALA LUMPUR: Graphic designer Fahmi Reza has been called up by the police again in connection with satire depicting Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba.

He posted on Facebook on Thursday (May 6) that he was on his way to the Kajang police headquarters for an appointment.

"The police have opened two new investigation papers under Section 504 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act due to my two satire graphics on Facebook and Twitter.

He said this is the third time he is being questioned by police for drawing a depiction of the Health Minister.

It was reported last week that Fahmi had been summoned to the Kajang and Sepang police headquarters on May 6 for two new cases against him.

Fahmi is being investigated under Section 504 of the Penal Code for the intention to insult to provoke a breach of the peace; and under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for two posts he made on Twitter.

The first post was a modification of the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia logo, while the other was an artist's impression of Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba.

“I am ready to face any investigation or new accusations, and I am ready to defend all my works. As usual, I will not delete those posts, ” he tweeted on Friday (April 30).
