Four to be questioned for insulting PwD


KUALA LUMPUR: Four people, believed to be the individuals in two videos that went viral for allegedly insulting persons with disabilities (PwD), are expected to be called in to give their statements.Sentul police chief Asst Comm Beh Eng Lai said the investigating officer was able to contact the four.

The police will get their statements recorded, he told Bernama.

The case has been classified under Section 504 of the Penal Code for intentional insult with intent to provoke a breach of the peace, and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act for improper use of the network service.

Last Thursday, OKU Sentral president Senator Datuk Ras Adiba Radzi lodged a police report against the individuals for insulting PwD although they had publicly apologised.

In the viral video clip, two youths were seen bragging about parking at a spot for the disabled by pretending to be one.

After being deluged with negative comments from netizens, the two shared a video where they publicly apologised to the PwD community.

In another video, two women were seen belittling PwD while using a toilet for the disabled at a petrol station.
