PETALING JAYA: The police have debunked a viral message urging the public to report "anti-vaccine instigators".
Inspector-General of Police corporate communications secretariat Supt Skandaguru Anandan said Bukit Aman had detected messages titled "sila laporkan penghasut antivaksin (please report anti-vaccine instigators)" attributed to Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.
The message also urges people to lodge reports via the e-Reporting portal. The police confirm that these messages are false.
"The e-Reporting portal referred to in those messages is a pilot project in selected locations," he said in a statement on Sunday (June 6).
Supt Skandaguru said that the e-Reporting portal allows people to lodge reports about cases not involving criminal elements or cases which do not require any further police investigation.
