3 police reports lodged against man who allegedly insulted, threatened Fuziah


KUANTAN: Three police reports have been lodged against a Facebook account owner, identified as Mohd Azmi Ismail, for allegedly posting rude remarks and threatening Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Fuziah Salleh, yesterday.

The reports were made by Teruntum state assemblyman Sim Chon Siang, Fuziah's special officer, Fakhrul Anuar Zulkawi and Razali Abd Rahman, who is Fuziah’s brother-in-law, at the Kuantan police headquarters.

Fakhrul Anuar said they want the police to investigate the owner of the Facebook account because he had issued an offensive statement that threatened the Kuantan MP’s safety and that of her family.

"The account owner had used improper language, and if there is something unpleasant, he can write, reproach or even see the honourable (deputy minister Fuziah) to discuss.

"This is not the way, using abusive language on a social networking site. We urge the owner of the account to come up with an open apology to the YB (deputy minister)," he said.

Fakhrul Anuar said he had read the posting on Thursday and has yet to be deleted.

Meanwhile, Razali said the police reports were necessary because the account owner had not only threatened Fuziah, but also other women in her family on the social media network.

"This can even be regarded as sexual harassment," he said.

Based on a copy of the police report, the statement was believed to have been posted in response to Fuziah's statement on issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT). -- BERNAMA © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
