‘Makcik’ who insulted king staying in Sweden
“Makcik Hajjah Sitt Al-Wuzara”, the individual who posted insults against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on Facebook and Twitter, will have to face the music if she returns to Malaysia, said Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim yesterday.
“Information on the individual was handed to the Attorney-General’s Chambers on Monday.”
He said the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had contacted Facebook and Twitter to take down the posts made by the individual, but Twitter could not meet the request.
He added that the identity of the individual, who was reported to be living in Sweden, had been determined.
Rais said because the case involved an individual living in Sweden, he or she could not be extradited to Malaysia because of constitutional foreign travel protection.
He said, however, MCMC had contacted Interpol, which had indicated that it was willing to cooperate with the Malaysian authorities on the case.
