Poster claiming Teresa Kok is new Felda chairman is fake, say cops


KUALA LUMPUR: Police are looking into a fake poster claiming that Seputeh MP Teresa Kok is the new Felda chairman.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Amihizam Abdul Shukor said that a report was lodged on June 22.

"The complainant, a 59-year-old member of parliament, saw the poster of herself, the Felda logo and a congratulatory message on her (so-called) appointment as Felda chairman on social media," he said in a statement on Saturday (June 24).

ACP Amihizam added that the post originated from a Facebook account belonging to Kubu Gajah assemblyman Khalil Yahaya.

"Preliminary investigations show that the content of the poster is fake. Felda has also confirmed that there had been no announcement on the appointment of a new chairman as of June 22," he said.

"The public is advised to not make any speculation on the poster. Our investigations are ongoing," he said.

The case is being investigated for intentional insult and provocation that could lead to a breach of public peace, and misusing network facilities.
